The hike is approximately 12 miles round trip with an average to above average hiking speed and only a few rest breaks. We're going to start near the back of the park store, and hike up the East Trail Ridge to the trailhead. From the trailhead, we will hike the Len Foote Trail to the Hike Inn, and return back the same route. We should be back in Atlanta early afternoon.
Note: The East Ridge Trail at Amicalola Falls is actually the first mile of a much longer trail, the Southern Terminus Approach Trail to the start of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia on Springer Mountain. The East Ridge Trail climbs to the top of Amicalola Falls, rising an average of 80 feet for each 500 feet of trail. It is one of a handful of trails considered strenuous simply because of the climb.
|How to Get There:|
From the Park & Ride we will go north on Georgia 400 past the outlet Mall to GA 136. Left on 136 till GA 52. Right until the park entrance. We will gather at the Visitor Center parking lot near the entrance.
