Plan Your Visit To Ruby Falls

Experience something magical

Ruby Falls is a family-friendly attraction in Chattanooga, TN. When you visit Ruby Falls, you'll go on a 1 hour and 15 minutes guided tour to see one of tallest underground waterfalls in North America. Tours leave every 15-20 minutes on average, so you can be sure to not wait long. Once the tour starts, you'll take an elevator down 260 feet through solid limestone rock! Once you're in the cave the distance for the entire tour is 4/5ths of a mile and is entirely paved and easily walkable. While you're walking, the tour guide will point out unique cave formations which you're welcome to take pictures of. After the short walk, you'll reach the falls and are given 10 minutes to take pictures and videos and admire the falls.

The temperature inside Ruby Falls Cave is a comfortable 60 degrees all year long, so a light jacket recommended. We also recommend wearing closed toed, comfortable shoes. The path to the falls is paved, but it is uneven in some areas. When you finish the tour, you're welcome to go to the gift shop or go to the top of Caven Castle to look out at the views off Lookout Mountain.
