Please join us for a moderately paced hike that begins from the beautiful Amicalola State Park. We will begin from the parking lot at the top of the falls, taking the AT approach trail before looping over to the Len Foote Hike Inn for lunch. We will complete the loop by returning on the Hike Inn trail.

Free lemonade, coffee, and other beverages (and often times snacks) are usually available at the Len Foote Inn. A small container is maintained for donations. However, you may want to bring something more substantial for lunch or snacking. While this is not a fitness hike and we will not be in a hurry, you still need D4 and/or D5 experience. The trip leaders may contact any registrant who does not have such history in the club.

Required Items to Bring:

Lunch and/or snacks
Good hiking shoes
Clothing appropriate for the weather
Plenty of fluid for adequate hydration

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Poles for those who prefer them
