Spectacular scenery awaits along the trail from Amicalola Falls to the Len Foote Hike Inn, and October is a great time to enjoy it! We'll start at the top of the falls parking lot and take the Approach Trail to the Hike Inn. This hike is a challenging route with several stiff climbs and is not for the beginner. We will not be on a speed hike, but you should be confident that you can maintain a steady pace for four miles up steep ascents with minimal time for breaks in order to keep up with the group.
A moderate pace will get us to the Hike Inn around noon for a 30-45 minute break. If it's pleasant, we'll take a few extra moments to enjoy the view and relax at this beautiful spot. Usually the Inn allows hikers to use their restrooms, but be prepared if that is not the case. Sometimes they have drinks or desserts available in the dining room, and if you take one they appreciate a cash tip.
After our break, we'll take the scenic Len Foote Hike Inn trail and descend to the parking lot.
Remember the $5.00 Cash for parking, or bring your State Parks annual pass.
