Anna Ruby Falls Recreation Area and Visitor Center


Anna Ruby Falls

Anna Ruby Falls

Spectacular Anna Ruby Falls lies in the heart of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest and has become one of North Georgia’s premier spots to visit. The Recreation Area consists of a visitor center with local crafts, educational items and clothing, picnic spots, fishing, and of course the paved hiking trail to Anna Ruby Falls. Throughout the year, the Visitor Center hosts public programs and activities ranging from stargazing to viewing the Foxfire – a special algae that glows in the dark! Taking a trip to Helen, GA? Anna Ruby Falls is a short drive away, and only a few hours from Atlanta. In short, we’re the perfect place to relax and unwind!

Be sure to visit our other beautiful Recreation Area, Brasstown Bald, located just a short drive away!

Please Note: You may purchase maps and guide books to this area by visiting our on-line store, The Forest Place.
