This is a track from the bottom of amicacola falls to the top. From there up to the AT approach trail and back. Fun loop for all. Well marked and the falls are beautiful!

Always pretty crowded, but it is the tallest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi. Paved easy trail going up, a lot of stairs, worth the view!

Hiked up the trail/stairs to the top of the falls with my almost 9-year-old. We brought lunch and relaxed on a bench at the top. The staff at the visitor center was very helpful to show us which way to go. There are landing areas with benches to rest as you go up the steps. This saved the day, because my son (OK, me too) needed a few breaks on the way up. We came down the east side trail, where there were a few nice mountain views.
