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 loved it. We took our time on the way to Helen by the way back we hustled and made it back in an hour. It was BEAUTIFUL too. Though the last 30 minutes is just woods it is still pretty.

Absolutely beautiful hike! Fairly easy, only one steep incline. Will definitely hike this one again soon!

Great trail. Was longer then expected but that didn't really matter. We loved it. We hiked it with 20 people, 12 were under 14 years old. It was challenging for them because of its length but everyone had fun! The mileage from the trail entrance according to my watch was 3 miles into the park in town. So in reality it is a 6 mile there and back. Not 5.3. Just FYI.

We took this hike recently and it was great for a short hike with lots of great photo ops. This trail connects to Smith Creek Trail which is unpaved and more strenuous. Anna Ruby Falls Trail is paved and generously wide for passing. Parents with good strollers could make this trail. There are several benches along the way for resting if needed. We saw many kids making the climb. Do be aware of snakes as we spotted at leat one, and there are several warning signs.

This is a great trail for any 4x4. There are some tricky parts but patience and a little skill go a long way. Lots of great views and camping spots. My complaint is that there is one section that is very rocky and will knock you around pretty good if you don't air down or go slow.

Very pretty falls. The trail is paved and is easy for children. There is a $6 park fee. There is a visitors center and shop at trailhead along with some nice bathrooms. At the falls, there are two platforms large enough to accommodate groups. Well worth the short hike.

Well maintained trail, paved the entire way.
Pleasant surroundings and the waterfall is the payoff.
