Very nice and easy. Some trees cut the path and are kind of dangerous to run around.
Great trail. Had not been cleared in a while but the blazons(markers) were in great places to see throughout the trail. Great trail to hike on a fall afternoon.
A varied and pretty hike suitable for all ages. The trail connects Unicoi State Park and the tourist destination town of Helen, GA. Trail features wooded areas, a creek, some open fields, and a few switchbacks with occasional moderate inclines. Well-maintained trail. Our 6 & 10 year old kids managed to hike the trail out and back (totaling about 7 miles) without any trouble. A nice day trip there & back if you spend some time in Helen, GA. Unicoi features some beautiful falls in a separate area of the park. Enjoyed it!
Easy family hike, not much to see...
Pretty easy trail to take the family on. Moderate with some parts that could be strenuous. Not to much to see, the river/creek is near the beginning of the trail. After the river/creek there is not to much to see.
