Hike-In Weekend Getaway in GA Mountains
Saturday, August 30 to Monday, September 1
Join us Labor Day Weekend for a peaceful getaway up in the Georgia Mountains to an inn that is only accessible by foot. We will hike in the moderate 5 miles to The Len Foote Hike Inn, spend Saturday/ Sunday evenings immersed in nature, then hike out Monday and head back to civilization.
The Inn at Amicalola State Park
The Inn at Amicalola Falls State Park is one of the newest and most unique of Georgia’s state park facilities. If you enjoy wilderness hiking but prefer a soft bed, hot showers, and great food instead of camping, the Hike Inn is for you.
The Inn is accessible only by foot over a moderate 5 mile hiking trail which originates at the top of the Amicalola Falls. The hike takes from 2 to 4 hours. You only need to bring your personal items, including layered clothing, hiking boots, extra socks, rain gear, toiletries, water (for the trail), sunscreen, insect repellent, first aid kit and flashlight. Please, no pets, cell phones, beepers, or radios.
After arrival at the Hike Inn, you can settle in and begin exploring. Cold and hot drinks are available in the dining room. In the cooler months, enjoy wood-burning stoves in the common areas.
Dinner and breakfast are served family style. Educational and entertaining programs are conducted in the Sunrise Room after dinner most evenings. Programs consist of everything from worm composting to storytelling. Books and games are also available. The Sunrise Room (as you would expect from the name!) is an excellent place to observe the sunrise in the morning.
We will drive up Saturday morning, hike-inn to the lodge, tour the lodge then enjoy dinner. On Sunday we will wake to a home cooked meal, hike to Springer Mountain, terminus of the Appalachian Trail, and back for approx 8-9 miles, then relax the rest of the day and enjoy another home-cooked meal. Sunday morning we will hike out to the trail head and visit the falls on our way home.
