The western edge of Talimena State Park is the starting point for this journey through Winding Stair Mountain National Recreation Area. Breathtaking panoramic vistas reward road trippers; numerous turnouts along SR1 make it easy to appreciate the scenery. Plan your trip for late October or early November to see the mountain faces blush ruby, melon and gold.
