Amicalola Falls


Amicalola Falls State Park, located 45 minutes from Blue Ridge, is one of Georgia's most popular spots. Breathtaking scenery and hiking trails of all levels of difficulty are part of the popularity, but the greatest appeal is the 729 foot waterfall. Boasting the largest waterfall east of the Mississippi River and tallest waterfall in the state, Amicalola Falls is a beautiful natural wonder. Amicalola means "tumbling waters", which you can view up close and personal on a bridge that faces the falls.

As you hike to the top of Amicalola Falls, you will capture stunning mountain views on the East Ridge Trail and Appalachian Approach Trail loop. The hike begins at the Amicalola Falls State Park visitor center (view maps and driving directions). 

At the top of Amicalola Falls, a bridge has been built out over this stunning waterfall that boasts what is unequivocally the best view. Spreading out for miles, on a clear day you can see the Allatoona Mountains some 30 miles away. From the upper platform, stairs and landings take you to the lower bridge, which crosses the face of the falls some 250 feet below.
