TRAIL INFO. - Our hike today was on the Smith Creek Trail at Unicoi State Park near Helen, GA. The trail is a 5 mile woodland hike which starts at Little Brook Campground and ends at beautiful Anna Ruby Falls. Directions: Just north of Helen, GA turn right onto Hwy 356 and drive past the lake and take the first left and drive a half mile or so and look for the Little Brook Campground sign.
Another beautiful hiking day! Clear skies and breezy with temps ranging from 40-56 degrees F. The trail is moderately hilly but not difficult. 10 miles total hike.
