This attraction is definitely worth a stop! This place is truly like a mini grand canyon. We hiked all through the canyon and we camped in the group camping location overnight. Some trails were definitely physically demanding but there were plenty of easier routes to take if you're looking for a more relaxed walk, either way the views of the... More

Was looking for something to do with our son who had a weekend pass from Ft Benning. It was a beautiful afternoon. This turned out to be the perfect place to spend some family time and get a bit of exercise. It was crowded but not overly so. There were families with young kids, teen groups, folks with dogs. Lots... More

Enjoyed a relaxing day hiking down and around the canyon. Did geocaching and enjoyed the sights. Easy hiking.

Beautiful views this time of the season! Not a lot of tree foliage. No bugs. Perfect 56 degree weather. We took the white trail, it was a great trail. There's was 3 trails total. Kids ranging from 13 years old to 11 months old. Everyone enjoyed it. If you've been here try it now, he won't be disappointed!

The person at the cash register give us a phone to call so we can't make the transaction we somebody else and then we will give them the confirmation number back.... More

Loved exploring this place with my best friend. The weather was lovely, the views were great, and you can hike on the top and bottom of the canyon. Would definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful day hiking to each of the canyons. We spent about three hours exploring. Our teenagers and younger child all enjoyed it. You do need to plan on your shoes getting somewhat wet and muddy.

I definitely think it is worth a visit to the Providence Canyon. Unfortunately, when my husband and I visited, we weren't prepared to hike, he had on loafers and I had on sandals!! I understand there is an easy trail around the rim of the canyon (wish we could have taken it.) There are two trails, one is 3 miles,... More

Called the Little Grand Canyon, it's not far off Hwy 27 in southwestern Georgia. Highway 27 is a great four lane drive from Columbus GA to Tallahassee, FL. The soil is beautifully colored pink, orange, red and purple. You can walk along the rim and see different parts of the canyon from vantage points or you can hike down into... More

What a delight! We love geological, rock and mountainous features and Providence Canyon is a real eye pleaser. We might be vertically challenged but my wife and I hiked the 3 mile canyon trail in style! Something that you don't often see are the bright white terra ferma spires that populate this gorge. It was equally fun to meet friendly... More
