Dual use trail, narrow with mountain bikers. can be a bit perilous since the sight lines are too short to see people flying at you.

enjoyed! stayed the night

It was harder than I expected, but worth the effort. Narrow and steep in places. There are several overlooks. Beautiful hike overall.

You could drive up the gravel road and proceed for the last mile or two of the top of Springer Mountain. But I would recommend a longer hike at the bottom, as you proceed through the Woods, you will become surrounded by wildlife and the forest is a great feel.

Great hike. Plenty of water. Great views from Springer Mountain.

it was exciting to hike for the first time in Georgia. I only had time for a day hike so I just did Appalachian trail to Springer summit and then took the approach trail back to the hike Inn trail...then merged back to the approach trail and returned to the parking lot near Amicalola falls lodge, which by the way was wonderful!! it total the hike was 7 hours because of stopping at the hike Inn and breaks. 7:15 to 2:30 made a nice hike!

The falls were beautiful and can be seen from several different vantage points. We took our 3 boys and spent half a day enjoying the hike. Plenty of parking and a restroom available at the trail entrance.

Fun trail from three fork you get a beautiful approach along the extended AT. If you go at the right time of year you'll get to meet some through hikers departing or finishing their journey.
