Amicalola Falls State Park
|Amicalola, a Cherokee
Indian word meaning "tumbling waters," is an appropriate name
for these 729-foot falls, which are the highest in Georgia. An
eight-mile approach trail leads from Amicalola
Falls to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the 2,150-mile
Appalachian Trail. With plenty of hiking trails, this park offers a
great way to see one of Georgia's most picturesque wonders of nature.
A 5-mile hike leads to more unique accommodations at the new Len Foote Hike Inn.
