Let's hike the lovely Amicalola Falls! This is a relatively modest hike and we will start at the Visitor's Center with about 425 stairs to the top of the falls and the start of the trail. We will keep a moderate, but steady pace with a few brief stops hiking to the Len Foote Inn for a snack/lunch break as well as a restroom break.
The Inn does not serve lunch to day hikers but sometimes have some dessert or fruit that you can take in exchange for tips to the Inn’s staff. This is not a guarantee, so be sure to bring your own lunch. They will have hot water, tea bags, and other drinks that you can pay for with tips. Also, pack out all trash brought in.
Restrooms are available at the start of the trail.
There is a $5 Amicalola Falls State Park Fee unless you display an annual pass.
The trip leader(s) reserves the right to remove anyone from the list who they feel may not be able to handle the hike.
