Less was more when I was a teenager. We came to this many times. In the 70's and eighties there wasn't a fee to drive on the park, there wasn't a cheap touristy gift shop and Unicoi state park used it in their guest programs on weekends. Even had night hikes with guides to give area wildlife and tree and... More

If it has rained recently it is more than worth the hike. Very beautiful & nice decks for viewing. It is definitely a strenuous trail just past the first crossover bridge and until about half way mark just past the "caves". Then it becomes much easier. If you are in decent shape it's really not that bad. No motorized scooters... More

Easy hike, very short hike. Not much else to do there. We also hiked the lake trails on the way out. There was a much more difficult many mile hike that we did not do at the falls.

We took the Chattahoochee river road drive before going to Anna Ruby falls. 0.4 mile hike from parking lot to the falls was serene and not too crowded at 3:00 p.m. ended the day with lots of heffe and o.k. German like food......Octoberfest.

Ranked #1 in tripadvisor, I had not actually even heard of the place when we arrived in Helen on Friday night. After being advised by the Welcome Center lady it was worth the short drive out of town, it became out last "to-do" on our list. The daughter and I arrived Saturday at around 3 and paid the $3 for...

Great place to visit while in Helen. Short 1/2 mile hike up to the falls. Paved trail. Suggest to visit early morning or it gets busy.

This place was in tip-top condition! The asphalt path was easy for me with my heart condition, and the viewing platforms are commodious for good views even with lots of other people. The pure water and air of the mist forest are so rejuvenating! Good gift shop.

Don't wear heals. Lots of walking involved so wear comfortable shoes. Make sure your battery is charged because there are alot of things to take pictures of
