Join your trip leader Bob Gabrielsen (dressed as a circa 1865 "mountain man") as we talk about old time holiday traditions and hike an "easy" rated 2.5 mile trail with beautiful views around Unicoi Lake - then travel to the quaint nearby town Sautee-Nacoochee for a Wine Tasting.
The Wine Tasting is optional and for adults only - BUT THIS IS A GREAT FAMILY HIKE!
Here's a great way to hike a pretty mountain lake trail - AND - do a little holiday shopping in the Bavarian hamlet of Helen, GA and historic Sautee -Nacoochee (the wine tasting room will gift wrap their great Georgia wines for FREE as a cool gift !)
This trail is mostly flat as it winds around the edge of the 53-acre Uncoi Lake. It's a relaxing and pleasant loop trail with views of Uncoi Lake and the surrounding mountains.
YOU WILL NEED TO PAY $5 FOR PARKING AT THE LOCATION - AS IT IS A STATE PARK
