Unicoi State Park, Helen, Georgia
Why Run It: The North Georgia Mountains serve up a smattering of red, yellow and orange leaves in the fall, and the variety of trails at Unicoi State Park are ideal for soaking them in. Running options about, from the 2-mile, non-technical Bottoms Loop Trail, to the 4.8-mile (one-way), burly singletrack that takes you to a waterfall (Anna Ruby Falls). Unicoi Lake, Smith Creek and ample brooks add scenery to this already picturesque place. Bonus: A dedicated mountain bike-only trail means fewer runner v. bike encounters on trail.
