“The Len Foote Hike Inn Trail and Appalachian Approach Trail Loop is a 9.6 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Marble Hill, Georgia that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, camping, and backpacking.

"The easy-to-moderate trail takes between two and four hours to complete, crossing small streams, traversing mild ridges and ambling past the hickory, pine and oak trees of North Georgia. [The point is you'll survive the trek and you'll love the end of the trail.]

"Rustic guest rooms, hot showers, family-style dining and stunning views offer the rare gift of enjoying nature in the company of wonderfully friendly folks.”

The above describes Len Foote Hike Inn; what it doesn’t tell you is once CSC arrives, this trip becomes an “adult sleepover”! We have so much fun!

Words from CSC members that went on the November 5-6 2021 trip:

Faith Young said, “The Inn has great food and it’s a beautiful hike! I enjoyed our game time with the ski club members.”

Ernie Holsopple wrote, “So many good things. The hike itself was awesome; the shared friendship and fellowship; AND GAMES!!!! Also the food was great.”

A.B. Maynard wrote, “Spending time with friends! AND hiking a beautiful trail with gorgeous fall weather.”

In other words, the trip is like an adult sleepover, with no TV, radio, or cell service. It is so nice to laugh, talk and play games. We were having so much fun playing games that other guests at the Inn came into the dining room to see what all the laughing was about and to ask, “What kind of club are ya’ll in?”

We did recruit one new member. No, Jim Bates, we didn’t clear it with you; he was just standing in the lobby and we gave him a CSC T-shirt and made him our newest member.

This overnight trip is so much fun and we would love for you to go with us next time.

One thing really bad happened on the trail up this time, our dear long time member Cindy Dees lost her “sole” on the trek up the mountain.  It was a great loss.
