At 729 feet, Amicalola Falls is the tallest cascade in the Southeast.  Visitors have choices on how to best view the tumbling waters, ranging from an accessible pathway to a challenging trail with wooden staircases. An 8.5-mile trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the famous 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail. Numerous other trails provide shorter day hikes.
