We loved walking on 425 stairs. Since we booked rooms somewhere else other than lodge at the park, we were disappointed. My kids had best time and we will be back for sure and next time we will stay at the Amicalola Falls State Park lodge.

I am a non-denominational minister and I have done tons of weddings at the bridge in the middle of Amicalola Falls.

Easy softly paved path through hardwoods past old wrecked moonshine runner's trucks to the amazing water falls. Appropriate for any age, wonderful trail that allows everyone access to the beauty of Georgia's mountains! Highly recommended, will return. Stop at the visitor's ranger station for maps, info and wonderful exhibits of local wildlife and history as well as gifts and books.
