Chasing Amicalola Falls
At 729 feet, Amicalola Falls is the tallest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi.
The Cherokee word "Amicalola" means tumbling waters. Amicalola Falls State Park in Northwest Georgia is one of the state's most popular state parks. It has 829 acres of wilderness in the heart of the Chattahoochee National Forest. It is near the southern end of the Appalachian Trail.
The park offers a variety of overnight options from traditional camping to cabins -- and the Amicalola Falls Lodge.
A total of 604 stairs offers vantage points of the falls from a variety of locations.
It's a sight to behold and an experience to be had.
