Independence Hike @ Amicalola Falls

Rated Moderate to Strenuous ... 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.  Due to the current status of the pandemic, please be prepared to wear a facemask if you carpool, unless told differently by the driver.

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 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, your new friendships, and of course, any photos you take.

SPECIAL NOTE:  If you plan to meet us at Amicalola Falls for the hike, we expect to arrive between 10:00a.m. - 10:30a.m., at The Lodge at Amicalola Falls State Park  418 Amicalola Falls State Park Road, Dawsonville, GA 30534.  Telephone number 706.344.1500.

As always, should you need to contact Hike Leader Carolyn, please call/text 678.231.4973.
