We start from the top of the Amicalola Falls and take the AT Approach Trail to Springer Mountain for a break. On the way back we take the Hike Inn Connecting Trail to Len Foote Hike Inn for another break. Then we follow the Hike Inn trail to get back to our cars.

There may be, no guarantee though, some goodies like cookies, cakes, fruits, etc. in the Hike Inn dining room. Please leave some cash in their tips box if you have the treats.

The event duration does NOT include our travelling/ driving time. Please arrive 10 minutes before our starting time. Our duration time is an estimate, and we need to have some flexibility.

Please only register if you are comfortable going long distance at a pace of 2.5+ mph in the remote mountains environment, and have recent D5 experience.

If your recent experience is not from the club, please include it in a note when you register, or email me; otherwise you will be moved to the waiting list for the safety of everyone. We encourage our members to actively participate with joyful experience, and most importantly to stay healthy and safe at the end of our trip!
