off road driving
15 days ago

why is this marked as off road driving?

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!

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.

Definitely a nice but challenging trail

Not too strenuous. Did not see much wildlife but evidence of bears everywhere--watch your step!

The Alltrails app is incorrect, I tried to use it to take me to the trailhead but I ended up on a wild goose chase. Bummer.
