Nestled in the north Georgia mountains just two miles from the Alpine village of Helen, Unicoi is one of Georgias most beloved state parks. Throughout the year, the park offers outstanding programs which focus on natural, cultural, historical and recreational resources. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy hiking and biking on scenic mountain trails, especially those leading to Helen and Anna Ruby Falls. Craft lovers should not miss the lodge gift shop specializing in hand-made quilts and local pottery. Numerous picnic tables are located throughout the park.
This is an overcrowded, short 0.4 mile walk on a paved pathway to an overcrowded platform beneath 2 beautiful waterfalls. They are a wonder of beauty, yes... But it's a 10 minute drive on a curvy, slow going road and $3 per person (over 15 yrs old) to enter. This would be a good introductory hike for a family with youngsters.
