The Springer Mountain Sprint is a guided out and back romp to the summit of Springer Mountain, the southern terminus of the renowned Appalachian Trail.
We start at the base of breathtaking Amicalola Falls. From there we make our way along the Appalachian approach trail to the top of Springer Mountain . We will return the way we came and complete our hike in the parking lot at Amicalola Falls.
Spectacular scenery and hiking trails make this one of Georgia’s most popular attractions. At 729 feet, Amicalola Falls is the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast.
There are choices on how to best view the tumbling waters, ranging from an accessible pathway to a challenging trail with staircases.
An 8.5-mile trail leads from the park to Springer Mountain, the southern end of the famous 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail. Numerous other trails provide shorter day hikes.
Transportation from Atlanta provided.
Extra Snacks and Water available.
I offer a variety of guided outdoor experiences to get you into the woods.
My mission is to reconnect people with revered wild spaces and ancient earth practices.
I am an Urbanite. I love the woods. Atlanta Georgia is my current geographical base of operations. Sunrises over the skyline, mid day meet-ups at a coffee house, and moon lit dinners with my family and friends on the patio have become staples of my city life. However the woods, the forest, the earth still beckons. I am an introvert. I have a naturalist intelligence; I find and create connections between people and the natural environment. I dig intentional quiet moments. Those times when I get to realize how exponential life is. I enjoy easy access to the Chattahoochee National Forest and the Cohutta wilderness to the north. I have extensive knowledge and expertise acquired with over 13 years of professional experience in the field of outdoor education and leadership development. +13 years of Professional Outdoor Education Practice +12 years certified Wilderness First Response +12 years certified Adult and Child CPR Read More > http://www.jemarraheem.com/about-me/ Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
