After last week's two mile hike straight uphill, you would think I had learned a lesson. But when I saw a "short" trail that wound its way up Springer mountain and to the top of Amicalola Falls, I was off with dogs in tow. I did think to ask friends if they thought we could [...]
The falls at Warwoman Dell lies at the end of a short loop trail in a small gorge. The dell (or valley) is beautiful and has a lot to offer.
