The Approach Trail
In my pre-planning for this trip I decided that I would hike the 8.5 mile approach trail that leads to the official starting point (Springer Mountain). The approach trail begins at Amicalola Falls which is a state park area complete with a ranger station, camping sites and a lodge. Of course it is also home to the largest cascading waterfall this side of the Mississippi. Who doesn't want to see that... right?
