We will meet on top of the Falls at 7:30 a.m and follow the AT Approach Trail for 4.5 miles until its intersection with the Hike Inn Trail which we will follow for 1 mile until we reach the Inn. After having lunch we will continue on the Hike Inn Trail back to our starting point. The Hike Inn does not provide lunch, so you will have to bring your own.
Make sure you bring plenty of water and that you keep yourself hydrated during the hike. There is a $5 GA DNR parking fee per vehicle at Amicalola Falls State Park unless you display an annual pass.
