Did you know there was a gold rush in the late 1800s in the North Georgia Mountains? Attend this event in June or July to learn more.

Also of note, if you follow the Smith Creek Trial, which connects at the base of Anna Ruby Falls to Unicoi State Park, the trail follows the contours of the Sautee Ditch, a hand-dug waterway that spanned a staggering seven miles from Smith Creek to two gold stamp mills during Georgia’s gold rush in the late 1800s.
