2021-03-12 – Anna Ruby Falls

DateLine: March 11, 2021

After leaving Fall Branch Falls, we decided to pay a visit to one of our favorite waterfalls in Georgia.  So, we headed on over to Anna Ruby Falls which is located in Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests.

The falls are located in a National Forest area, so be prepared to pay an entry fee or if you have a National Park pass it will be accepted also.  The funny part of the journey is that you have to go through a Georgia State Park to get to the National Forrest entrance.  But, don't worry, it well marked and easy to drive to the entrance.

Here is some info from the USDA Forrest Service:

Visit twin waterfalls plunging more than 150 feet (tallest) on the paved trail from the visitor information center. While there take a short walk on the Lion's Eye Trail a short 0.01-mile paved hiking trail for the visually impaired with interpretive signs in both normal text and braille.

Limited hours of operation, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., no admission after 4 p.m. to allow time to access the falls. The site will be open from Thursday - Monday (closed Tuesday - Wednesday). There is a set capacity for the parking lot of 90 vehicles. Once that amount has been reached, cars will be turned around at the gate until the number in the parking lot decreases. No access allowed during the closed day/hours. 

  • $3 per person 16 years and older
  • 15 years and under are admitted free of charge.
  • Anna Ruby Annual Pass - $25/person/year
  • $35 Friends and Family Pass, which allows the pass holder plus two adults in on the pass.
