Visit the majestic twin waterfalls at Anna Ruby Falls on International Waterfall Day!

Program Details

International Waterfall Day is celebrated every year on June 16th to celebrate the magnificent scenic beauty waterfalls provide. Waterfalls are found all around the world and are incredibly important to the local communities living around them.

At Anna Ruby Falls, you can enjoy the forest and majestic views of twin waterfalls by walking on the half mile paved trail from the visitor information center. The double waterfalls are formed as two creeks, Curtis Creek and York Creek, tumble over a massive, towering cliff below the summit of Tray Mountain. The Curtis Creek waterfall, on the left, is the larger of the two, tumbling over 150 feet into the boulder-filled basin below. York Creek, on the right, spills 50 feet before joining Curtis Creek at the base of the waterfall. The joined creeks form Smith Creek, which eventually links with the Chattahoochee River as it flows to Atlanta.

Make it day as you hike to see these two beautiful falls, pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the day in the cool, beautiful forest that surrounds Anna Ruby Falls. A gift shop and visitor information center is available on site as well.

Be sure to stop by the Gift Shop and pick up your complimentary “I reached the falls” sticker available to the first 100 participants to hike the falls on this date.
