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.

We got here a little late in the day so we didn't get to finish the trail. I'm writing this more to warn people. Since Irma came through there are a ton of trees down over the trail that are interesting to navigate. For hikers of all levels. Also, after the first .5 mile to mile, I would venture to guess about 80-90% of the trail is covered in fresh foliage and branches, making it difficult to see trip hazards and ankle twisters and also making it a bit slippery in some areas. Be careful out there. Great trail and will go back.

Enjoyed this hike but noticed it's infested with spiders (hiked Sept 2017). I actually faced planted a web and felt the spider crawling on my face. Nice payoff with the falls at the top and plenty of room to rest and grab a snack.

Nice hike with the kids.

This is a beige trail at best. Great cardio workout; but other than Anna Ruby Falls; nothing notable to see on the trail. Having said that, if you're seeking solitude, never saw another soul.

The scenery was gorgeous and the setting was very tranquil. The Falls themselves were beautiful!

Nice, easy hike with great scenery

A bit touristy but well maintained paths and bridges excellent double falls with nice platforms for viewing.

if you enter from the west entrance it's a nice Sunday day drive. There are some side trails you can take that require 4wd. About half way there is a wide gravel spot in the road and a hiking trail. If you drive past that point it is very rocky. A few tough spots . Road washed bad in spots. we had 4 1\2 lift and 33's we bottomed out twice and had to break the jack out and stack rocks under tires to level out suspension. About 4 hours to do 14 miles. Not for beginners.
