Providence Canyon is near Lumpkin, Georgia. It has beautiful gullies formed by erosion 150 years ago. This park is part of Georgia's East Gulf Coastal Plain region. People call it Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon." There are 16 canyons altogether. Some canyons are 1 mile long and 300 feet across. An ancient ocean formed all the canyons.
The pinnacles are formed when two canyons meet and the walls separating them erode away. Pinnacles will eventually fall into a talus cone. The talus cone will then gradually wash downstream.
Providence Canyon State Park is open from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily. It's a 1,108 acre park. There are 150 varieties of flowers. For a small fee visitors can fill glass bottles with beautiful sand from the canyons. There are 65 picnic tables and 2 picnic shelters. In 1971 it became a state park.
