Sport your support when you have a Georgia AT License Plate!
The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) receives $10 annually for each Georgia specialty A.T. plate purchased or renewed. Since the plate became available in 2013, Georgia license plate holders have raised over $300,000 for ATC.
Apply for Your Georgia A.T. Plate
Apply for your plate by visiting your local Tax Commissioner’s tag office, or by choosing the “Appalachian Trail Conservancy of Georgia” specialty plate when you renew your registration online. In addition to the regular vehicle registration fees, a standard, numerical A.T. license plate costs $35. There is also a one-time manufacturing fee of $25 when you first purchase your tag.
Georgia A.T. License Plate Grant Program
Each year, the ATC uses funds from the sale of Georgia A.T. license plates to provide grants to organizations and individuals who are working to help fulfill the ATC’s mission within the state of Georgia. Since 2014, over $193,000 has been awarded to grant recipients working on a wide variety of A.T.-related projects.

Due to the storm that moved through the area on March 25, 2021, Amicalola Falls State Park officials have closed the stairs adjacent to the falls, as well as the West Rim Trail. This requires a reroute of the Approach Trail when leaving the park's Visitor Center. Hikers to the Top of the Falls will need to follow signs for the East Rim Trail, then join the Approach Trail at the Len Foote HIke Inn parking lot.
