Hike Inn at Amicalola Falls State Park

  • November 14, 2012 · 12:00 PM

We are excited that Hike Georgia has been offered the opportunity to bring a group to the Hike Inn on November 14th – and we want YOU to come!
The Inn has room for up to 40 people, so it’s first come, first served. It will be a great time for friends to spend time together and have fun.
Cost:
$35/person for double occupancy, $70/person for single occupancy (Normally $70/$97!). To reserve your spot. http://welove2hike.blogspot.com/p/local-hikes.html
About the Hike Inn:


Located near Dawsonville and Dahlonega, the Len Foote Hike Inn at Amicalola Falls State Park is a back country inn with 2-person private rooms with comfy bunk beds; hot showers, sinks, and compost toilets in the bath house; and prepared meals served in their dining room. 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, and the beautiful trail is entirely within the Chattahoochee National Forest and Amicalola Falls State Park. Guests only need to bring personal items, including clothing, toiletries, and food and water for the trail. Bed linens and towels are provided and a family style dinner and breakfast are served. Educational and entertaining programs are conducted in the Sunrise Room after dinner. There are great porches with rocking chairs, and indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, along with books and games. The Sunrise Room (as you would expect from the name!) is an excellent place to enjoy a cup of coffee and the sunrise in the morning. The buildings are awesome, beautiful, green, and LEED Certified Gold! You can learn more about it at their website:http://hike-inn.com.
Hope you can join us!
Thanks,
Eric Graves
Executive Director
Len Foote Hike Inn

    Well it looks like we've dwindled down to just 3 of us. :(
    Still I plan to have fun.
    I'll be using Waze (free smart phone app) to get there. If you want to track me, contact me and I'll send you a link.

    It's been over 10 years since I've been to Hike Inn. I use to volunteer from time to time.
    Long range weather forecast is clear with highs in the mid 50s and lows in the low 30s. i.e. Crisp Fall weather. :)

    Anyone want to carpool from the Atlanta area?

    The Hike Inn is an incredible place!
    I'm surprised more haven't expressed an interest. I'd be interested in a double occupancy.

    Thanks for your response Reginald. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it because of work. I hope you all have a great time.

    I just learned that I have to work on the 15th so I will be unable to stay the night of the 14th. Will the group hike on the 14th at all?

    Hello Martha, hope all is well. Yes this is a backpacking hike. However, a small book backpack will do.

    Is this a back packing hike ? Can I talk to someone about this hike? It really looks great and very interested.
