Anna Ruby Falls, Georgia

Anna Ruby Falls was just a few miles up the road from downtown Helen, Georgia. From the visitor center it is a half mile hike, through a serious forest, up to the beautiful twin waterfalls. Cascading down Tray Mountain, Curtis Creek drops one hundred and fifty-three feet and York Creek falls fifty before they join at the bottom of the cliffs to form Smith Creek.
