From the parking lot just off Unicoi Bottoms Road inside Unicoi State Park and Lodge, runners start the loop course for the half marathon by heading across the grassy meadow just ahead and then north toward Unicoi Lake and Anna Ruby Falls. Once in the forest, runners will make their way along the park’s trails and landmarks. Organizers emphasize that the trails are designed for beginners, and so they won’t be overly challenging for most runners.
