Amicalola Falls State Park | Dawsonville, Georgia | Appalachian Trail Starts Here | Waterfalls
Amicalola Falls State Park is located in Dawsonville, Georgia. (Dawson County) This state park is home to the 3rd highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River at 729 feet. Amicalola is a Cherokee Indian word for tumbling waters. Appropriately named. This park is also where a lot of the Appalachian Trail hikers start as it has the 8.5-mile approach trail to Springer Mountain. This park has so much to offer. A lodge with a restaurant, hiking trails, playground, picnic tables, ziplines, archery and so much more. This is a MUST see if your ever in the North Georgia area!
Mountain Crossings at Walasi-yi (Neels Gap) Blairsville, Ga INFO AND Desoto Falls | AT Trail
Mountain Crossings at Walasi-yi (Wa La See Yee) aka Neels Gap is located in Blairsville, Georgia. This building was built back in 1937 and sits directly on the Appalachian Trail AND it's the ONLY spot on the AT that you cross through a man-made structure! How cool is that? Having many purposes over the years, it has been Mountain Crossings since the 1980's. This is a hostel, a gift shop/re-supply store for hikers, a mail drop, a shuttle drop off and pick up spot and just a great spot to get on the AT for a day hike! A quick 8-minute drive down the road is Desoto Falls Recreation Area. A great little picnic spot inside the Chattahoochee Oconee National Forest that has a trail to Desoto Falls. It has an upper and a lower falls. We only did the lower falls since our day was jam packed. It was a quick .25 of a mile hike to the lower falls. We went in the spring of 2022 and there were so many flowers starting to bloom, it was a great time to visit. Filmed April 13, 2022

In this video, we give you a wonderful review of this AWESOME state park! We share helpful information if you would ever want to visit this area. Roan Mountain State Park is located in Roan Mountain, Tennessee. Surrounded also by National Forest. Such a lovely area! We visited in the fall, so the leaves were really beautiful! Love traveling this time of year to see the fall colors! We also took a quick 13-minute trip outside of the park to visit Carvers Gap, a gap in the mountains where you can get on or get off the Appalachian Trail (for those who don't know what the Appalachian trail is: it's a 2,190-mile trail that starts in Georgia and ends in Maine, goes through 14 states) Very popular trail that likes to stay on mountains tops! Any who, our son wants to hike it someday, so any chance we get, we try and hike bits and pieces of it. So, at Carvers Gap you can get on and hike as much of it as you like. We just took it about 3/4 of a mile hike up to the top of a bald and got panoramic
