Hoping to dodge the rainy days. Join us for a challenging hike on the Smith Creek Trail at Unicoi State Park. We start at the camp gounds and hike five miles to the base of Anna Ruby Falls. Note that we will not be able to hike onto the platform area to get closer to the falls due to the partial govt shutdown, but Unicoi State Park is open. Along the way we climb up to Hickory Ridge with the first three miles being uphill. We pass by mountain laurel and small water falls while hiking along Smith Creek. Then we hike along the ridge with views of the valley, with the sound of Anna Ruby Falls in the background. Most of the hike is uphill. When we are hungry we will stop at a nice spot for lunch.
Elevation gain of over 1500 feet.
Thank you Bill S for the previous details!
