The Inn is accessible only by foot over a moderate 5 mile hiking trail which originates at the top of the Amicalola Falls. The hike takes from 2 to 4 hours. You only need to bring your personal items, including layered clothing, hiking boots, extra socks, rain gear, toiletries, water (for the trail), sunscreen, insect repellent, first aid kit and flashlight.
On the trip back, you may opt to complete a hiking loop by returning via the Appalachian Trail Approach Trail. The Hike Inn is one mile from the Approach Trail. If staying more than one day, you may also choose to hike to Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, about 4.5 miles from the Inn, or hike on one of the short trails around the Inn.
The Hike Inn Trail is entirely within the Chattahoochee National Forest and Amicalola Falls State Park. Although much of the way is an easy walk, there are some climbs of moderate difficulty. The distance markers along the way indicate interesting features and flora on the Trail.
