Amicalola Falls Loop features Georgia’s highest and most popular waterfall. Amicalola Falls cascades down a dizzying 721 foot rock-face, the third highest waterfall in the eastern United States. The trail runs above the falls offering spectacular views of the falls, Allatoona Mountains, as well as the surrounding Georgia piedmont. Because it is so popular there are roads to the reflecting pools and to the top of the falls, making this adventure relatively crowded. Be aware that there is a parking fee.

Steep 2.5 mile hike to the peak. Rugged terrain. Used sometimes for military personnel training. Also used for climbing. Dogs are allowed but I don't recommend it.

This is the Cherokee Hiking Trail as labeled by the park. The trail mostly stays along the base of the mountain and skirting by a couple of small lakes. A section of the trail skirts over the lip of the mountain on the summit access side. Denoted by a white rectangle, the trail will require maneuvering over large rocks. Parts of the trail are warned to be extremely slippery when wet and there is a connecting trail that keeps the hiker off the lip of the mountain. Mostly squirrels and snakes were found along the trail during the summer. This is not a very crowded trail.

This is at the Sawnee Mountain Preserve on the Indian Seats Trail. The trail markings are a blue diamond with "IS" and a number below it. The trails get a little confusing so utilizing the maps posted along the route is a big help. The views at the top are spectacular with many places to sit and view the landscape. On clear days you can see the Appalachian Mountains. You can access this trail from Bettis Tribble Gap Road.

This adventure winds along the rim of Providence Canyon, which has deservedly been coined the nickname “Little Grand Canyon”. The hike features awesome up-close views of the stunningly colored and peculiarly sculpted sandstone canyon walls and sweeping panoramic distance canyon views. When out of the canyons the path explores rolling hills, covered with a range of flora, from rhododendrons, deciduous trees and azaleas to long-leaf and loblolly pines. Bird life includes warblers, thrushes, owls, turkeys and all of Georgia’s woodpecker species. There are several side trails and campsites along the way to make your trip more enjoyable.
