#5. Providence Canyon State Park
8930 Canyon Rd, Lumpkin, GA 31815
Finish up your road trip at Providence Canyon State Park. Known as Georgia’s “Little Grand Canyon,” this park is full of curious geological formations. The unique terrain came about after the erosion of the Coastal Plain. Take time to check out the gorgeous views on the rim trail, or hike miles of other sandy nature trails. Backpackers can take the backcountry trail on a multi-day trip through the canyons and forest. If you’re searching for lodging nearby, stay in a cottage at the nearby Florence Marina State Park.
