At the top of the falls we will go to the Amicalola Falls State Park Lodge, take a break and return down the falls by the same route. Once at the bottom of the falls, we will take a break at the Park Office and head up the East Ridge Trail. Once again going to the Amicalola Falls State Park Lodge and taking a break.

If you have never been to Amicalola Falls before it is over an hour north of Atlanta. For instance, I live in north Marietta. Thus, it is about an 1 hour and 15 minutes for me and I will plan on an hour and a half drive.



PARKING PASSES:  Each driver is responsible for paying the $5 per vehicle per day self-service State Park parking fee (or displaying instead from your rear-view mirror a valid annual GA-DNR parking pass - available for sale at the park Visitor Center).
