Little Grand Canyon

I spent my spring break in Alabama and stayed with my best friend. We both share the love of the lake, chacos, and the outdoors. It was such a great week and I can't wait for trips over there this Summer!

One of our favorite hiking locations is Providence Canyon in Lumpkin, Georgia. Many Americans refer to Providence as the "little grand canyon." If you've seen the Grand Canyon, I can't say Providence will amaze you, but it is certainly breathtaking. 

Note that your GPS is likely to lose service near the canyon, so I recommend printing out directions before you leave. You can walk inside the canyon if you take the path that leads to the trail {keep in mind that you have to follow the signs and go off the trail to really experience the canyon}. There is a hiking trail you can take to view the top of the canyon or you can cheat and drive over to the canyon lookout. 

There are two separate sets of canyons: 1-3 and 4-6, so plan time for several hours to hike around Providence. There are also a few playgrounds if you are traveling with children. Parking is $5 per car and the rangers are very friendly. I've been here on sunny days and rainy days, and it's beautiful either way. Do come prepared for the weather.

I also filmed the first installment to the Explore With Me series  that I am starting on my YouTube channel while at Providence, so definitely check it out to travel along on the adventure.
