Do you have to pay to use the AMP?
You can access the AMP from 15 free parking lots located along the trail. Two additional parking lots are located within Panola Mountain State Park. There is a $5 Georgia State Park parking fee if you use these parking lots unless you have a Georgia State Park Parking Pass.
Is the AMP a strenuous trail?
Your own fitness level will determine if you find the trail moderate, intermediate, or difficult. All trail users should expect to encounter hills along the AMP.
Is this a rail-to-trails project?
No, so you’ll see plenty of curves and hills as you explore.
What should I bring?
The trail meanders through woods, meadows, and state and county parks. The varied terrain can be challenging so bring plenty of water, good hiking shoes, and sunscreen. It is also a good idea to bring your cell phone and a hiking buddy.
What types of vehicles are allowed on the AMP?
No motorized vehicles are allowed on any PATH trails except for motorized wheelchairs. However, any non-motorized vehicle with wheels is allowed. Examples include bikes, strollers, rollerblades, unicycles, and scooters.
Can I bring my dog?
Leashed pets are welcome along the entire PATH. Please remember to bring water for your pet and clean up after them.
Should I hog the trail?
No! The trail is clearly marked with yellow dashes and all users should stay on the right side of the line. This allows visitors to stay safe while enjoying the trail.
Who built the AMP?
The AMP was built by the PATH Foundation which has constructed many paved trails throughout Georgia.
