Providence Canyon State Park, Georgia


We visited Providence Canyon State Park in Georgia recently and hiked the nature trails there, this place is fairly remote, but worth the drive ...it's known as Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon"....
















The canyons were formed here, due to poor farming practices by the early settlers in the early 1800's when trees were cleared to plant crops. By 1850, ditches three to five feet had been cut into the land. Today some of them are as deep as 150 feet.


Today, the park covers over 1,108 acres with 16 canyons. Some 43 shades of soil can be seen here.











I hope that you enjoyed seeing the unique beauty that's here....thanks for coming along with us for a hike!
