Anna Ruby Falls Professional Reviews and Guides
"Showy! Located adjacent to Unicoi State Park, Anna Ruby Falls is one of the most frequently visited waterfalls in the area. Although overcrowded, the falls are quite beautiful and worth a visit. Dont expect seclusion here, and you wont be disappointed."
--Melissa Watson, Hiking Waterfalls in Georgia and South Carolina (Falcon Guides).
"Anna Ruby Falls Recreation Area is on USDA Forest Service property adjacent to Unicoi State Park. The roadway through the state park is the only access to this federal facility. The twin cascades of Anna Ruby Falls form the most visited waterfall in the North Georgia mountains.The recreation area contains the paved pathway of 0.5 mile Anna Ruby Falls Trails that runs from the visitor center up to two viewing platforms at the base of the falls."
--Donald Pfitzer, Hiking Georgia (Falcon Guides).
It was rainy and yucky but we had reservations at Hike Inn, so we were committed! A solid trail that's a series of three hills. It took 2 1/2 hours walking in & 2 hrs out. The trail was beautiful in the mist and Hike Inn was a great experience. A must do! Reservations fill up 6 months to a year in advance so plan ahead.
I can't wait to do this hike and spend time at Hike Inn again.
We hiked this trail again and it is still the best. Everyone needs to spend a night the Hike Inn.
My wife and I hiked from the falls up to the Inn during the morning. The hike was one of the most enjoyable we have experienced. There were very few steap grades. Most were moderate (but steady), and the continually changing landscape kept it interesting. During the afternoon, we returned to the falls and enjoyed the same hike (in reverse) because everything looked different (due to the movement of the sun). We plan to do this hike again this spring. Well worth the time and effort!
