Due to Covid-19, we are not encouraging carpooling. If you want to ride with someone, you must make those arrangements independently. We practice social distancing and we wear masks. We want to ensure we keep everyone as healthy and safe as in our ability to do so. Please adhere to these guidelines. So, with that said, come prepared to drive with $5.00 to pay for parking. Note that a FREE State Park parking pass can be checked out at your local library with your library card.
Amicalola Falls Hike
Saturday, July 3, 2021

Trail Rating: 3 Miles - 602 Stairs

Amicalola Falls State Park is an 829 acre Georgia State Park. It's name is derived from a Cherokee language word meaning "tumbling waters." The park is home to Amicalola Falls, a 729-foot waterfall, making it the highest in Georgia. It is considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia.
Remember... we car pool and each rider is asked to donate at least $8-$10 toward gas and the parking fee of $5 (you can get a free State Park pass from your local library). It will take approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach the trail head.
Bring plenty of water, a light healthy lunch, a smile and a friendly disposition, and you are guarantee to have a wonderful outing in the wilderness... WOW! As always, wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots (please, no new shoes or boots...you will be sorry...break them in first!), and of course comfortable layered, clothing.
Don't forget the Leave No Trace principles to which we adhere... what you carry in, you carry out, with the exception of taking your memories of the adventure
