Description

This trail is a great destination hike for those visiting Helen or Unicoe State Park. The distance listed is only to the falls, but is short enough that hikers of all ages can enjoy.

The trail crosses a few beautiful streams and lush North Georgia forest. Visitors can expect to see plenty of rhododendron and other fauna. A deer, raccoon, and possible beer may also be seen. If you find yourself in North Georgia in the Chattahoochee National Forest, give this hike a go. You won't be disappointed.
