Providence Canyon State Park is referred to as Georgia's little grand canyon. It was actually created by poor farming practices and the canyon walls are soft and easily eroded. Regardless it is a beautiful park nestled on the border of Alabama and Georgia in the middle of the state.
Tons of little slots to crawl around throughout the bottom of the canyon. Climbing on the walls is prohibited. Those walls are extremely soft and dangerous.
Carving on the walls is also prohibited but unfortunately we found many places that were marked.

The hike into the canyon and back up around the rim is short but there is so much to see that it takes much longer than you think. Wear sturdy hiking shoes that can get wet and muddy because no matter what time of year you visit, the canyon floor is wet. Dogs are allowed on the trail. I also recommend going in the fall because the heat of summer is brutal here.
