Iconic Ruby Falls is named one of the "Ten Most Incredible Cave Waterfalls on Earth" and it easy to see why. Water pours from rocks 145-feet above before cascading down into a small pool. Standing at the base of the falls, you can feel the mist and hear the power of the water. Tours start an elevator ride that lowers visitors over 1,000 feet below the surface of Lookout Mountain. Your tour guide will meet you and take you along the tour route that gives ample time to view beautiful cave formations.
Lookout Mountain Tower can be accessed at the end of the tour for panoramic views of the Tennessee Valley below.
