Refocus through intentional introspection.

A-GAP experiences create space for you to escape the noise and distraction that technology brings in order to intentionally focus on what you value. In picturesque locations, we guide and facilitate self-discovery in a technology-free environment. Away from the chaos, we encourage participants to align how they spend their time online with what is important to them. Since we know, how we spend our time will determine who we become. We equip those who join us with the tools necessary to master technology instead of letting it master us.

Enjoy a balance of solitude and community, active time outdoors and reflective times of creativity at our weekend-long A-GAP Experience. Come as you are, but leave empowered to make a difference.

Amicalola Falls State Park, GA

Len Foote Hike Inn.

A backcountry lodge, a gateway to the Appalachian Trail, & one of Georgia’s most distinctive state park destinations.

From the experienced Appalachian Trail “thru-hiker” to the group seeking a unique weekend getaway, the Hike Inn’s secluded location allows a wide range of people to enjoy the peace & beauty of the mountains without the trappings of modern life.

The Inn — open year round — is a sustainably designed Georgia State Park facility nestled in the Chattahoochee National Forest, just a few hours north of Atlanta. Its four main buildings offer twenty private guest rooms, hot showers, fresh linens & home-cooked meals.

The Hike Inn’s mission is to make experiencing nature easy, & help protect it through education & recreation.
