Amicalola Falls State Park Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The park’s name, “Amicalola,” is taken from the Cherokee word for “tumbling waters,” an apt description for the 729-foot falls (highest east of the Mississippi River) created when the waters of Little Amicalola Creek cascade from high above a wooded valley.
The park features miles of trails, scenic views, campgrounds and picnic areas, a mountaintop hotel, and the state’s only hike-in lodge (the Len Foote Hike Inn). Amicalola Falls State Park may be best known as a terminal point for hikers traveling the 2,190-mile Appalachian National Scenic Trail (AT), which begins on Springer Mountain north of the park."
