We will take the loop counterclockwise from the hiker parking lot above the falls next to the restroom building.
We will have a late lunch at about 1pm from the chairs at the overlook on the back of the Hike Inn property. We might even see the recently sighted bears and turkey along the way during the morning hike.
After lunch we will continue north and west on the Hike Inn trail to join with the AT Approach trail and follow it southbound to our parking.
This loop is in the high end of the range for a D4 with 2200 feet of climbing. The terrain is moderate in comparison with other hikes associated with the AT.
There is a $5 Georgia State Parks parking fee per vehicle at Amicalola Falls State Park unless you display an annual pass.
Recent D3/D4 experience is required for this hike. Otherwise, please send an email to the trip leader explaining your qualifications.
