Itinerary:

This is a hike for intermediate to advanced hikers.  The hike will begin at the top of the falls.  We will hike approximately 5 miles to the Len Foote Hike Inn. We will stop for a short break and to eat a snack/lunch while we enjoy the view.  We will return by completing the loop in a clockwise direction. We should be back in Atlanta by mid afternoon.

The hike will exceed 10 miles with above-average elevation gains. There is about 2,200 - 2,400 feet of ascent on this hike, so you should have recent D4 or D5 hiking experience prior to registering.  We will maintain a steady pace (average overall pace of 2.3 mph) with very limited rest breaks, except to enjoy our lunch and a beverage at the Len Foote Inn.  

No carpool for this event.  See you at the top of the falls!

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

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. Instead of parking in the Visitors Center lot, take a left before the lot and head up the hill to the parking lot for the Len Foote Inn Trailhead.


Notes:

The Len Foote Inn often graciously provides coffee, tea, fruit and leftovers as snacks for day hikers.  Please remember to bring enough money to tip appropriately if you choose to take advantage of this courtesy.


However, you can not count on there be any food there when we arrive so your trip leaders highly recommend that you bring your lunch :)
