This is a fitness hike intended for hikers who enjoy hiking at a faster pace - not for beginner/casual hikers or those expecting a casual stroll in the woods. You will be expected to keep up with the group while traversing up an down several hills.
The hike is approximately 10 miles round trip with a quicker hiking speed and very few rest breaks.
We will meet and start at the top of the falls at 7:30 AM (Plan to arrive a few minutes early for introductions). From the trailhead, we will hike the AT Approach trail for 4 miles. We will turn onto the Len Foote Trail and hike a mile to Len Foote hike Inn. We will stop at the Inn for a brief break. We will continue back via the Len Foote route.
We should be back in Atlanta early afternoon.
We will leave the carpool 6:15 AM SHARP so we can start our hike at 7:30 AM.
Please plan on bringing a snack since we will be dropping by the Len Foote Inn for a very quick break. The Inn will sometimess have some bread, dessert or fruit left over from dinner the night before that you can take in exchange for tips for the Inn employees, but this is not a guarantee. They will generally have iced tea, coffee, lemonade and other drinks. Be sure to drop a dollar or two in the Inn's donation box.
|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. Once in the park, follow the signs to the parking above the falls. There will be a bathroom there also.
