Located in the mountains just minutes from downtown Helen, Unicoi State Park is a beloved place to spend time outdoors in Georgia. There are miles of scenic mountain trails for hikers and mountain bikers, fishing docks, and a calm mountain lake invites swimmers in need of a refreshing dip. Pack a picnic to enjoy at one of the dog-friendly dining spots here - just make sure to keep your dogs on a leash. For a quicker walk, let your dog tag along on a trip to Anna Ruby Falls. The path here is paved and boasts rewarding views of the beautiful falls in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Charlemagne Kingdom is another great place to bring your pets in Helen. This Alpine Model Railroad Museum features model trains, 3-D displays, and more.
If you plan to explore the Bavarian-style bars and beautiful wineries in Helen sans pets in the afternoon, show your dog some extra love in the morning with a trip to Helen’s Country Cafe. They are open for breakfast and lunch daily and allow leashed dogs in the outdoor dining area. In the evening grill freshly caught fish from the previous day’s fishing excursion at home in your Helen cabin rental, and spend the waning hours of sunlight relaxing outdoors with your dog.
