Spectacular Anna Ruby Falls lies in the heart of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The quiet coolness of the area is broken only by the thundering rush of water flowing over the rugged cliff face. Anna Ruby Falls marks the junction of Curtis and York Creeks. Both creeks begin on Tray Mountain and are fed by underground springs, rain, and snow. Curtis Creek drops 153 feet and York Creek 50 feet to form the twin waterfalls known as Anna Ruby Falls. From the falls, Smith Creek tumbles downhill to Unicoi Lake and then to the Chattahoochee River. It's journey continues south, eventually joining the Applachicola River in Florida and ending its 550-mile journey in the Gulf of Mexico.

If you plan to meet at the trailhead try to bring at least one more event participant with you: we will have to run a shuttle from Helen and we need to make sure that we will have enough cars to transport all the drivers that left their cars back at the trailhead.
