At 729 feet high Amicalola Falls is the highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi in the eastern United States.  A brisk, short but steep climb up to the falls up the stairs will reward you with an incredible up close view of Amicalola Falls and the mountain vistas.  The name Amicalola originates from the Cherokee word for tumbling waters.
Amicalola Falls State Park is located in between Dahlonega and Ellijay just 15 minutes past the apple orchards in Ellijay.  
In addition to hiking, picnicking and viewing the Amicalola Falls, Amicalola Falls State Park offers and highlights ranger interpretive programs where you can learn about and touch the local wildlife of the North Georgia Mountains up close. The owls that were being shown were rehabilitated after injuries and are able to be relased into the wild again.

Amicalola Falls State Park is the soutern terminus of the Appalachian Trail with the access trail to Springer Mountain beginning just steps behind the Amicalola Falls State Park visitors center.
