There are a range of outdoor activities available that move from sedate to thrilling – it is one of Georgia’s most popular state parks for a reason!
At 729 ft high, it is the highest waterfall in Georgia and the third-highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River.
The ultimate is to hike from the base of the falls of Amicalola Falls (starting from the Visitor Center at the park’s entrance) right to the top where the lodge is located.
There is a much easier and flatter trail that takes you to the middle observation deck. You can, of course, take the steps up to the top from here, or down to the bottom (if they are open).
We’re talking a 2,400-ft long, 250 ft high cable zooming you at speeds of up to 50-60 miles per hour and offering you outstanding mountain and valley views.
You’ll come across foam modeled animals such as deer, bear, foxes and the final prize – an elusive dinosaur.
