Hike Inn (Blog Link)

I've taken my two son's to the Hike Inn in N. GA 3 times & each time we've all really enjoyed it. It's a great 5 mile one-way hike to the Inn that has rustic yet very nice amenities. It's a great overnight hike if you want to introduce your kids (or spouse, GF, BF...etc) to hiking & the outdoors without it being too strenuous.

For the more serious hiker you can do this 16.2 Mile Loop by making it up to the official start of the AT at Springer Mountain and track back to stay at the Hike Inn as well.

For a full description of the trail & the Hike Inn feel free to read my blog link above.

They use a dirt trail on the backside of the inn that you can't see and use a ATV or Gator to bring up supplies. The public can only get there by hiking 5 miles.

I have been there twice and enjoyed both stays.  If you tell them you are a vegetarian they will fix you a veggie supper.
