I ended my day hiking of the AT by going up Springer from the upper parking lot, just before the falls. I did the stairs after coming back so got in a nice 4,358' of gain on the 16.5 mile RT hike.

First night out on a short section hike to Clingman's Dome. One of the best sunsets seen.

Really cool place to go. I would like to either be starting or ending a thru hike next time though.

Backpacked from Amicalola Falls to the top of Springer, spending one night on the AT Approach Trail. The best part of the hike, in my opinion, was the brilliant green of spring. Absolutely brilliant!

Sadly, the peak was socked in with clouds this morning. We were heading out after a relaxing night at the Len Foote Inn (4 inches of rain that night!) and enjoyed this peak, even though we couldn't see a darn thing and the humidity was insane.

Hiked from the Approach Trail on a steamy August day. Decent view from the summit. Wish I could have gone further.

Date Climbed: Apr 26, 2008


Hiked this early in the morning and unfortunately when I got to the top it was all fogged in. I had camped the night before about a mile and half south on the approach trail that starts at Amicalola Falls. In total, this was an 18 mile day and a little more challenging than I expected with a 40lb pack. There was a really nice gentleman on top that had a register to collect peoples names and provide some great information on the trail. I wish I remembered his name...

Was running out of time (had to head back to the airport), but I really wanted to see the southern end of the AT. Great short hike, can't wait to return for more AT peaks.

Great introduction to the AT. Always fun watching beginning throughhikers with overloaded packs being overly surprised with how much up and down the Georgia AT section has.

I "climbed" Springer (up from FS 42) on a section hike in November 2002. It was cold! Hiked on to Hawk Mountain.
