Trailsin Amicalola Falls State Park
Amicalola Falls Trail is actually two trails, the "Base of Falls" Trail and the waterfalls trail (Top of the Falls) and they have two entirely different personalities. The Base of Falls Trail parallels the paved road between the visitor’s center and the reflecting pool, crossing it once and ending up at the southwest corner of the lower falls parking lot. The falls portion of the Amicalola Falls Trail is a steep, paved trail that requires a good deal of effort to climb up. For this reason, we suggest that you climb to the top of the falls via the East Ridge Trail and come down the "Top of Falls Trail" on the return. This hike is much easier.
