Anna Ruby Falls, Helen

(4.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Anna Ruby Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Helen Edition.

  • Even in January this place was awesome. We were lucky with the good weather mid January. Nicely paved short walk to falls. 
  • These waterfalls are a great outdoor photo opportunity. The waterfall is convenient to many mountain vacation towns in the area. Drive through Unicoi State Park to access the falls and pay the $3 per ...  more »
  • Pretty much exactly as expected. Charged for what is tax supported! The area was well maintained although the bathroom could have used a bit of attention.
