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.

  • Easy / moderate hike on a paved path. Kids and hubby enjoyed walking near the water until we reached falls. It was very busy on the day we visited but it was worth it.  more »

  • Definitely kids friendly hike to the waterfalls. The hike was short from parking lot to the falls. Beautiful views. Paved trail to waterfalls. Awesome gift shop. Very friendly staff.
  • So beautiful! There are some very steep parts but overall a really good walk. Beautiful falls.
  • One of our favorite falls in the Unicoi State Park. A relatively easy hike on a paved path that follows along the creek. There are two nice viewing decks to see a 153 foot and 50 foot falls. On this day the 30 degree temps created a lot of ice. These falls are spectacular and worth the hike. Come to enjoy.
  • Dont go after 4:00pm, pay to park is in front. Then when you go in theres a second gate inside the park that says closed after4. Wanted to see the falls, paid, never seen it. Turned into a 5 dollar bathroom stop..
  • Beautiful falls! Simply gorgeous. Check out our video featuring the falls! youtu.be/O09y_Y2_Gxg
