Len Foote Hike Inn

In October, we usually head to North Georgia to hike, enjoy the nice weather and see some fall colors. This time we booked a room at the Len Foote Hike Inn which can only be reached by hiking 5 miles from the Amicalola Falls State Park.

Here is our hike path from Amicalola Falls to the Inn.

On our return the next day, we decided to take the Appalachian Approach trail which connects Amicalola Falls to Springer Mountain.

It was an easy introduction for our trip to LeConte Lodge in the spring.

Three Forks Loop

This loop trail requires driving on Forest Service Road 42 for a while to get to the trailhead, but the unpaved road is in good condition and the Appalachian trail is always busy.

Basically, the loop consists of sections of the Appalachian and Benton MacKaye trails which crisscross each other a couple of times in this area around Rich Mountain.
