Amicalola Falls State Park
©2006 The Atlanta Guide

Amicalola Falls State Park is one of Georgia's most popular state parks.

Amicalola, a Cherokee Indian word meaning "tumbling waters," is an appropriate name for these 729-foot falls -- the tallest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River. The park can also be used as a starting point for the Appalachian Trail. An 8.5 mile approach trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the 2,135-mile Appalachian Trail.

The park is located 15 miles northwest of Dawsonville on Ga. Hwy. 52. Take Hwy. 53 west to Hwy. 183 north to Hwy. 52 east.
