Anna Ruby Falls is one of the best waterfalls to view in Georgia. We're going to start at Unicoi State Park and hike 4.5 miles along the Smith Creek trail to the Falls. We'll eat lunch at the Falls and then head back the way we came. This is a moderate 9 mile hike, so if you're in decent shape, come join us!
