Happy Sunday Hikers,
This is a rather long email, however very important that you read before the Len Foote Hike-Inn trip. Please reply to me which option you for choosing below!!! We don’t want anyone left behind.
We have 4 options for getting to the Hike-Inn.
- Option 1 is to meet for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel in Dalton, Ga, 938 Market Street, Exit 333 off I-75 at 8:30 am.
- Option 2 is for those of you who don't want to eat, but will join the breakfast group at Cracker Barrel to caravan to Amicalola Falls, leaving Cracker Barrel at 9:30 am.
- Option 3 is to meet us at the Visitors Center @ Amicalola Falls State Park @ 11:00 am to sign-in, drive up the hill, park, and hike together.
- Option 4 is to go on your own, and we'll see you at the Hike-Inn.
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.
*****Please let me know which of the above 4 options you are doing. We don't want to leave anyone behind. email@example.com or text me 423-902-6095
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****
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****
This year due to COVID the game room will have NO GAMES!!! If you have a game that you are willing to bring with you that would be great… I will be bringing LRC dice so bring your $1.00 bills if you would like to play….I will also bring a deck of “ROOK” cards.
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,
