Spectacular scenery awaits along the trail from Amicalola Falls to the Len Foote Hike Inn! 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 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 lunch break. Usually the Hike Inn allows hikers to use their restrooms, but be prepared if that is not the case. Sometimes drinks and snacks are 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.
Option to carpool or meet at the event. Remember the $5.00 fee for parking, or bring your State Parks annual pass.
