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.

Nice, easy hike with great scenery

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.

This trail is easy for kids and most adults. My 76 year old father-in-law struggled on the way up because of the elevation gain, but made it. the falls are beautiful even if difficult to see the top from the viewing area. we went on a Sunday morning and the trail was, in my opinion, crowded.

The pricing is $3 per person over the age of 16. It seems weird to me they would charge per person rather than per car, but I don't make the rules!

Do try to get here earlier in the day to avoid the huge crowds and line at the pay gate.
