stephen was immediately interested and my wineries didn’t open until 11am so we did have some time to kill. the falls were about an hour away from our b&b and were well worth it. we hiked something like 700 steps to get to the top of these beautiful sights.
once you get to the top of the falls, you can hike up a bit further to the amicalola lodge. we checked out the gift shop and the panoramic views of the mountains and then headed back down the other side of the mountain. on the way up, our trail was mostly stairs and on the way back, it was a more typical hike with lots of rocks and small creeks. very pretty, serene, and quiet compared to the jam packed stairs!
