Ruby Falls, Chattanooga

#2 of 137 in Nature in Tennessee
Cave · Waterfall
A thundering underground waterfall, Ruby Falls is fed by both natural rainwater and natural springs. Located at the end of the main passage of a deep mountain cave, the waterfall creates a pool in the cave floor and then continues to flow through underground passages until it finally empties into the Tennessee River. Enter the cave to see the 45 m (150 ft) waterfall and several types of geological formations, including stalactites and stalagmites. For an in-depth look at this underground world of water and limestone, join a guided tour of the cave, or check online for your chance to see the falls on an expedition using only lanterns to light the way. Plan to visit Ruby Falls during your Chattanooga vacation using our convenient Chattanooga online day trip planner.
