    This was a fun little hike to the Anna Ruby falls. The path was all paved and well kept. We really enjoyed the falls and the hike in and out of them. IF you go to Hel, you should definitely go to Anna Ruby Falls.

    Views were great. Many campsites on the water. None were being used. Most definitely primitive camping but you don't have to worry about bringing in water. You can always boil it if you don't trust the rapid moving crystal clear water for drinking. The trail is for people with good footing & good sturdy shoes. Not for wheelchair, walkers, or unsteady individuals. WILL get slippery and questionable if raining. Don't expect stairs, railings or cement/blacktop path. It's a wonderful & enjoyable walk just be aware. LOTS of tree stumps and roots. Approx 6.5 miles round trip. LOVED it!

    Beautiful place to visit and staff is very nice. Arrive early to have place to yourself and make sure to go to the top tower to enjoy the view.

    Per AllTrails, this hike is the #1 hike in the State of Georgia. At 4.1 miles round trip and 1,453 vertical feet is it a great hike with just enough elevation in just enough distance. While the nearly the entire hike is through a thick Georgia deciduous forest, one side of the top has a sheer granite wall that provides incredible views to the west over the valley below. For all these reasons, this is an incredible hike. I will say there are a number of camps in the area so the trail can be quite busy. However, it can equally clear out as it did before I returned, hiking the entire way down by myself and having an incredible experience with a number of deer on the return.

    If you are in the north Georgia mountains, this is a great hike that I highly recommend. The distance and elevation are relatively low and the rewarding view for the effort is incredible. There is a reason this is the best hike in Georgia.

    This is the nicest and most relaxing place to visit. Always fun to sit and watch the tubers float on by.

    It was OK. The best part is you control your cart's speed. You start out going behind the building and up a hill several feet on a cable. Then, you are released to run the track at your own pace. I think the maximum speed is 21mph. They space you out to start with and have markers every 80 feet so you don't bump anyone. We had six in our group that road. We all wanted to see who could ride full throttle and "not brake". I think we all did. It's a quick busy of adrenaline. Not too much, but enough to make a fat person think their cart would jump track. All in all it was fun and not overly expensive.

    Lovely park with plenty of shady spots to get out of the sun if you wish. The one negative I would say is that there is a lack of parking. If you are staying out of town and drive to get here, it can be challenging to find a spot to leave the car. If you are staying in town you can just walk over to the park.

    Liked getting to taste the wine. Staff is very knowledgable about all the wines and the wine is made from local ingredients, The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was, the fact that you had to pay for the wine glass separate from the tasting. The tasting in $12 for 5 samples and the glass wasn't included

    Great place to stop for maps, coupons and good advice! The best piece of advise the lady gave us was parking. Several lots, but costly and hard to find a spot. Provided us with plenty of information for our day trip. Unable to use a lot of her suggestions because it was CRAZY crowded!
