Product Details

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. <br><br><b>Directions:</b>&nbsp;&nbsp;Located 15 miles northwest of Dawsonville. Take Ga. Hwy. 53 west out of Dawsonville, then Ga. Hwy. 183 to Ga. Hwy. 52 east.
