Please join us as we hike along one of the most popular and diverse mountain trails in North Georgia. We will cross small streams, traverse mild ridges and hike past hickory, pine and oak trees of North Georgia. Backpacker magazine included the Hike Inn trail as one of 36 “Best American Hikes", and the Hike Inn was included on National Geographic Traveler’s “Stay List.”
We will depart from the carpool location at approximately 8:30 am, and the hike
will begin from the trailhead at approximately 10:00 am. This is a moderate to
difficult loop hike at a moderate pace, and we will stop at various points along the
trail. We will stop for quick breaks at the following locations along the trail: Frosty
Mountain (the highest elevation of the hike), at the turn from the AT approach trail
to the Hike Inn Trail, and at the Hike Inn itself.
We will continue back via the Hike Inn Trail, which is an easy-to-moderate trail takes between two and four hours to complete. Once we return to the parking lot, then we can venture over to the top of the waterfalls for photos.
|How to Get There:|
From the Mansell Park & Ride, take Georgia 400 North past the outlet Mall to
GA 136. Turn left onto GA 136. Then turn right onto GA 52. The park entrance will
be on the left. Once in the park, follow the signs to the parking area above the falls.
The parking lot is on the far side of the falls and has a sign for Hike Inn parking.
There are restroom facilities at the trailhead.
