We'll enjoy late fall views from the top of the falls along the AT Approach Trail to Springer Mountain. We ascend from the top of Amicalola Falls for about 4.5 miles, over Frosty Mountain and past the turnoff to the Hike Inn. Continuing another 3.5 miles, down and up through Nimblewill Gap, will gain us the summit and a lunch stop atop Springer Mountain. We'll return the same way, down the Approach Trail to Amicalola Falls. This is a demanding day hike, with about 3500 vertical feet cumulative elevation gain, and we'll move about 2.5 - 2.7 mph. Email the leader if you want to come but don't have recent D5 club experience.
