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!

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.
