Situated in the Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia, Anna Ruby Falls is a breathtaking sight to behold. Two creeks have created the drops from which the waterfalls cascades and those who make the short hike to the falls will be delighted that they did. One of the falls has a drop of around 50 feet while the other is in excess of 150 feet but both are stunning and picturesque. The trail to the decks from which to view the falls is around half a mile from the parking area, so you don’t have a very long walk ahead of you. Of course, if you enjoy hiking there are other trails that you can enjoy as part of your day here such as the Lion’s Eye Trail.
