Unicoi State Park is north Georgia’s largest and most popular state park. With over 1000 acres for fishing, camping, hiking and biking, there are activities for every everyone’s pleasure.

My first visit to the park was to participate in the Dirty Spokes Trail Run Georgia State Park Series. This was the second of four races in the north Georgia state parks.

Flabbergasted to win 2nd place.
