Hello CSC Happy Hikers,

Len Foote Hike

Friday October 18, 2024

Please read this and reply if you have not already replied.  Let me know you are registered for a room

Len Foote Hike is never canceled due to rain.  The Hike Inn cancelation policy has changed.  I have 11 rooms held for Friday Oct. 18th, 2024.  The Hike Inn is under new management and things have changed so please read the following:

Those of you going MUST call and book your room 706-344-1547 ask for Kim.  You MUST tell them you are with Chattanooga SKI Club to get one of the rooms I have on hold.  If you need to cancel your room you MUST call at least 7 days before your arrival date Oct. 18th, 2024, for a refund minus $10 cancellation fee.  There is NO REFUND if you cancel 6 days before the arrival date.

This is also new for 2024... the 11 rooms that I have on hold are in my name.  I must cancel any rooms not taken by September 16th, 2024, or they will bill rooms that have not been booked to me.... YAP!!! I will not let that happen.  So please call book your room and please, please, please let me know, so I can keep a tally on how many rooms are left of the 11. 

Also you must also register on the CSC Event Website and sign the waiver. 




Remember, everyone MUST ALL REGISTER BEFORE GETTING ON THE TRAIL (at the Visitors Center @ Amicalola Falls just inside the main gate (before driving up the hill to where we park and the trail starts).  

This is very important….****** NOTE**** When you arrive at the park gate, DO NOT PAY  to come into the park, be sure and tell the Park Ranger that you are spending the night at Len Foote Hike-Inn. You will pay your parking fee when you register at the Visitor Center. 

 Also, Hike-Inn has asked for a $10 cash tip from each person.  Please do this, the tip is divided between ALL STAFF, cooks, waiters, bathroom cleaners, property cleaners, laundry people, front desk, yard & lawn workers…. everyone….. There will be “tip jars” in the dining room and the front office****

 Other items:

If you have never taken the tour on how the Hike-Inn is run organically and Green, you need to do this… very fascinating & interesting… This tour usually starts promptly at 5:00 p.m. *** might be different this time so ask when you check in****

You may pack in alcohol however you must carry out anything you carry in so use plastic containers for less weight in your pack. 

We will be playing LRC AFTER DINNER and AFTER THE PROGRAM... SO if you want to join in bring some $1.00 bills.

One more item:

If you have a Chattanooga Ski Club T-Shirt or hat or both, please bring with you for a “Group Picture”! I think this will be a Great Picture for the CSC Newsletter.

I guess that’s it….. Looking forward to a great hike with great friends and great fellowship.

Glad you’re going with us this time,

Hike-Inn Reservations

If you like to hike and have never done this before, you will love this fantastic moderate hike.  The trail is well maintained without a lot of rocks or roots on the trail.  It is uphill most of the five miles.  You will need to carry your clothes and toiletries for the evening and the next morning.  When you reach the Inn, you will fall in love with this place and will want to go back again.  Awaiting you will be a delicious home-cooked dinner (family style) and a hearty breakfast.  Alcohol can be packed in.  For more info, see their website @  Be aware that what you carry in you must also carry out.

****. There is also a $10 per room tip that must be paid while you are at the Inn.  Cancellation is up to 7 days out with a $10 per room cancellation fee.

As always bring $1 bills for LRC.....
