Join me on a moderately paced hike on the Smith Creek Trail to beautiful Anna Ruby Falls. We enjoy the sounds of Smith Creek on the first half of our trek to the falls before we climb to Hickory Ridge and enjoy some views of the valley and the roar of the falls in the distance. We will stop for lunch at the falls before retracing our steps back to our cars in the campground of Unicoi State Park.

This will be my dogs, Buck, first AOC hike. If you don't like dogs or are worried about a dog giving you more attention than you want, this may not be the best hike for you.

To join the fun you must have recent mountain hiking experience at the D4 level. The trip leader reserves the right to move inexperienced hikers to the wait list.
