We’ll meet and start from the Amicalola Falls State Park Visitor Center.
We'll start from the Visitor Center and take the Appalachian Approach Trail to the base of the falls, then climb up stairs to the top of the falls. There are many beautiful views along this climb. At the top of the falls, we'll follow the AT Approach Trail and Hike Inn Connecting Trail to Len Foote Hike Inn for a snack break. After break we'll follow the Hike Inn Trail and the East Ridge Trail to get back to our cars.
There may be, no guarantee though, some left over foods and drinks like cookies, cakes, fruits, coffee, lemonade, etc. in Hike Inn dining room, please leave some tips in their box if you do eat or drink them.
Georgia State Park requires $5 entry/ parking fee, or your annual pass. Annual pass is a great way to motivate oneself to keep coming back and enjoy all of the Georgia state parks. It is more convenient and very cost effective.
The event duration does NOT include our travelling/ driving time. If you’re going to meet at the event, please arrive 10 minutes before our starting time. Our duration time is an educated estimate, so we need to have some flexibility.
<<< Important Notes >>>
Please only register if you are comfortable going long distance at a pace averaging 2.5 mph in the remote mountains environment, and have solid D5 experience. A good reference is you can comfortably finish Kennesaw 10 in less than 4 hours.
If your recent experience is not from the club, please include it in a note when you register, or email TL; 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 event.
