Awesome Autumn Hike at Amicalola Falls 

We will hike to the top of the falls and take the stairs down. We find it easier to go down the stairs rather than climb up. Since we are hikers, we will hike the trails to the top of the falls! The trail has some rocky sections, but no climbing, just the incline. We will take our time. It is definitely worth the absolutely awesome view!  Amicalola Falls is considered on of the Seven Wonders of Georgia.

We will have lunch at the reflection pool, talk about the wonderful hiking experience, enjoy each others company and then head home.  The actual hike will take us about 2 hours or more depending on how much we relish the views.

We have the option of stopping at Burt's Pumpkin Farm as we leave, and one of my favorite places, Bradley's Farm for some fried apple pies, organic homemade loaf cakes, and a delicious Muscadine slush...hmmm!
As always, wear comfortable (not new) shoes and layered clothing. We will carpool, so please be prepared to donate $7 - $10 to the driver to help cover gas and parking.  Speaking of parking, there is a $5 fee for parking unless you go to your local library and check-out a State Park Parking Pass for free parking.  And, feel free to tip your hike leader(s), to show your appreciation for a job well done ;-)!   

Don't forget the Leave No Trace ethics and principles to which we adhere... what you carry in, you carry out, with the exception of taking your memories of the adventure, your new friendships, and of course, any photos you may take.

Please feel free to text or call me, should you have any questions or concerns.  I can be reached at 678.231.4973.
