   Itinerary is subject to change before and during event.   


This Hike is approximately 10 miles round trip with a short rest break at the Hike Inn.  Pace can vary depending on group, but expect around a moderate pace.  I plan to carry a 35 lb. backpack so my hiking pace will be moderate, but not fast. You're welcome to do the same but not required.

 We will meet and start at the top of the waterfalls at 7AM.  From the trailhead, we will hike the AT Approach trail for 4 miles, turn onto the Len Foote Trail, and hike to the Len Foote Hike Inn. We will take a short break at the Hike Inn and continue on the Len Foote Trail back to the top of the falls parking lot.

We will finish our hike around 11 AM, plus or minus.

It costs $5 per car to get into the park, unless  you have a park pass.
