Len Foote Hike Inn

Len Foote Hike Inn

240 Amicalola Falls State Park Rd., Dawsonville, GA 30534

A LEED-certified inn with 20 simple rooms, each with two bunks. (Hot showers are in a bathhouse.) Most guests pass their time hiking, chatting, reading, or playing board games in the Sunrise Room or rocking in an Adirondack chair on the wraparound porch.

 

What to Do: Stroll along the gorgeous one-mile Cove/Fire Break Interpretive Trail loop to look for native wildflowers: fire pinks and brilliant orange Turk’s cap lilies, as well as stunning butterflies like the blue- and orange-dotted spicebush swallowtail. If you’re really ambitious, hike 4.5 miles to Springer Mountain, the southern starting point of the Appalachian Trail—and then 4.5 miles back to the inn.
