    Did this route in a clockwise fashion last august. First day was filled with steep inclination, camp was set up around 4 miles in. Day two was easy with most of the trail being a gradual decline. The Inn was a welcome experience with a great overlook, friendly people, and hot coffee. The hike back to the falls was quick from there and included a couple of pretty outlooks.

    Decently solid hike nothing difficult for sure. Took me a touch over 3hrs to complete the loop. As far as downed trees I crossed literally one.. not sure what that other review was about. I would however definitely break out the mid sole or actual boots. Can’t tell you how many times I almost rolled an ankle in regular trail runners not being able to see the rocks with all the leafs.

Len Foote Hike Inn Loop Amicalola Falls
Counter-clockwise. I purposely slowed down after stopping for lunch at The Hike Inn, taking pictures and stopping to talk with A.T. hikers headed to Maine.
