A favorite destination for 95 years, Ruby Falls is home to the tallest underground waterfall open to the public in the United States. 

Pick your adventure and descend 260 feet by glass-front elevator into the mountain and explore the cavern trail to the tallest cave waterfall open to the public in the United States. Learn the story behind the accidental discovery of the cavern, see stunning rock formations, and experience the thundering waterfall! 

Take in the beautiful view of the Tennessee Valley, Cumberland Plateau, and Tennessee River from high atop historic Lookout Mountain Tower and Blue Heron Overlook. Relax and enjoy the mountain breeze from the front porch of historic Ruby Falls Castle and the Village Plaza.

Committed to cave conservation and environmental sustainability, Ruby Falls is the first attraction in the United States to earn certification from Green Globe and is recognized as a leader in tourism sustainability.
