Hiking: Habersham County is surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest. There are trails too numerous to mention both for the pleasure walker and even for the seasoned hiker. Many trails can be strenuous and dangerous. Sections of the Bartram Trail and Duncan Bridge Trail are located in the area. Access to the Appalachian Trail is also available.
Fishing: Habersham County has excellent fishing lakes and rivers, seasonal and yearly Tallulah Gorge is one of the deepest and most dramatic gorges in the east. The gorge is a three mile canyon that reaches a depth of nearly 600 feet. It is bordered by rocky, vertical walls. During certain times of the year Georgia Power Company has water releases from the dam and one can experience this mighty river as it thunders over the falls creating an echo that can be heard both day and night. The first of these great falls was named Ladore; then came the 76 foot high Tempesta Falls; then the 96 foot Hurricane Falls. The fourth falls were named Oseana and next was Bridal Veil Falls, with a drop of 17 feet. The last of the falls was named Sweet Sixteen Falls, with a drop of 16 feet. Hiking into the gorge is very strenuous. It can also be very dangerous. Because of some of the danger that exists it is required that you check in with Georgia Power's Terrora Visitors Center.
