This state park features Georgia’s ‘Little Grand Canyon’

by Margaret Willard

Despite being a lifelong Georgian, I’d never heard of Providence Canyon State Park until it was featured in a nature segment at the end of the TV show “Sunday Morning.” The video was stunning, showing off the parks’ flora and fauna along with the massive rock formations.

Unlike The Grand Canyon, which was formed by the power of the Colorado River, these canyons were formed over 200 years by poor farming practices.

The 1,000-acre park includes two hiking trails, picnic shelters, museum, visitors center, astronomy and geology programs, and is located in Lumpkin, less than an hour south of Columbus.
