Anna Ruby Falls, Helen

4.8
Formed from two separate streams merging into the twin waterfall, Anna Ruby Falls provides hikers with a quiet respite in the center of a national forest. The falls are accessible via a 0.8 km (0.5 mi) paved trail from the parking lot and features benches along the way. Winding along Smith Creek, the trail gives information on the local environment; you can admire the waters merging into Smith Creek from the viewing point. The Lion's Eye trail is a specially designed route for the visually impaired, providing handrails and braille signs. Head to the visitor center for tickets. A gift shop sells local crafts and paintings next door. Remember to pack good walking shoes, as the paths can be slippery and wet.

  • Great place to hike. Awesome waterfall to see. For those adventureous hikers, you can hike from Unicoi to Anna Ruby for added adventure.  more »
  • 1/2 mile paved hike, steep in areas, but very worth the effort. a double sided fall with large viewing platforms  more »
  • Not a long walk through the the woods down a paved path. Very nice state park. I would recommend comfortable shoes however because it is a up hill walk .  more »

  • My husband and my mother visit Anna Ruby, is a beautiful place, we walk the whole 1/2mile with my 75 year old mother.. She made it to the Fall, and i do recommend it...Beautiful with a river on both side during the walk.. Cost to enter $3 per person.
  • Every time my husband go to Georgia we stop in over here! It's only a half mile long so it wasn't bad at all. The views are beautiful! $3 per person to get in.
  • Gorgeous falls and a short uphill climb (.4 miles) that’s dog friendly. It was a great way to start the day! Also, there is a little lion walk loop that explains the types of trees next to the visitors center. It was interesting to learn. Go early before it gets super busy...
  • It is beautiful here! Worth the 4 tens a mile walk(most uphill) and paved. I think its taller than Amicolla Falls? It's weird how the altitude is high and all the falls are going like a raging small river. Definitely a must see.
  • Gorgeous falls. Paved walk up. One relatively steep incline that if you have any leg problems you may want to bring some walking sticks. Overall very nice.
