If you enjoy wilderness hiking but prefer a soft bed, hot showers, and great food instead of camping, the Hike Inn is for you. The Inn is accessible only by foot over a moderate 5-mile trail that originates at the top of the falls.
Check in at the Park Visitors Center to get information and directions for your walk to the Hike Inn. The hike takes from 2 to 4 hours, so be sure to start early enough to arrive well before dinner.
You only need to bring your personal items, including layered clothing, hiking boots, extra socks, rain gear, toiletries, water (for the trail), sunscreen, insect repellent, first aid kit and flashlight. Please, no pets, cell phones, beepers, or radios. Bathhouse, Dining room, Sunrise room, Star Base, programs, and events (see website for listing).
Special discounts are available to non-corporate groups when reserving the entire Inn. Please call for additional details.
All guests must check in at the Visitor's Center at Amicalola Falls State Park by 2 p.m. Late arrivals will not be permitted to hike on to the Inn. The check in time is enforced for the safety of Hike Inn guests. It's calculated to allow sufficient time for guests to enjoy the hike to the Inn and arrive before dark in winter months and in time to settle in before dinner.
