"Man Made Grand Canyon" Providence Canyon State Park by TexasDave
Providence Canyon State Park Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 29 photos
Situated about 4-5 miles West of Lumpkin, GA on GA 39 C this is sometimes called The Grand Canyon of the East.
The massive gullies, as deep as 150 feet, were caused by poor farming practices during the 1800s.
The rare Plumleaf Azalea grows only in this region and blooms during July and August when most azaleas have lost their color.
I think it's more impressive to visit during colder weather when the trees are not full of leaves and you can see more of the canyon itself.
There is a 3 mile hiking trail which takes you down into the floor of the canyons.
