Experience the Natural Wonder of Ruby Falls

Named one of the Southeast’s Must See Attractions, Ruby Falls is a family-friendly destination where there’s fun for everyone! Ruby Falls features America’s tallest and deepest underground waterfall open to the public and is home to the historic Cavern Castle and Lookout Mountain Tower, where you can enjoy spectacular views of Chattanooga and the Tennessee River. For above-ground adventure, Ruby Falls ZIPStream Aerial Adventure offers the thrill of climbing and zipping through the tree tops on Lookout Mountain. While you’re here, stop by the TreeTops Gift Shop to purchase a souvenir to remember your naturally wonderful visit to Ruby Falls! 


Classic Waterfall Tour

The tour to view the falls begins as you descend 260 feet into historic Lookout Mountain by elevator. Your tour guide will lead you through the caverns as you explore the many unique geological formations along the way to the thundering, 145-foot waterfall. The path is entirely paved, and the journey to the falls and back is approximately four-fifths (4/5) of a mile. The temperature inside the Ruby Falls cave is a comfortable 60 degrees year round, so a light jacket is suggested. We also recommend wearing closed-toed, comfortable shoes as the path is uneven in some areas. 

Available daily, 8 am – 8 pm
