Waterfalls

Anna Ruby FallsTwo falls, one on Curtis Creek and the other on York Creek together are called Anna Ruby Falls. Curtis Creek and York Creek join at the foot of the falls to become Smith Creek. The Curtis Creek falls plunges 153 and York Creek falls 50 feet. A paved walkway leaves the Visitors Center and follows Smith Creek on a beautiful interpretive walk to the observation platforms at the base of the two falls.

To reach the falls from Dahlonega head north on GA9 / Morrison Moore Parkway for 13 miles, then turn right onto US-129 for 7 miles. Turn left onto GA75-Alt for 8 miles, then turn right onto GA17 / GA75 for 0.3 miles. Take the 2nd left onto GA-356 for 1.3 miles, then a slight left onto Anna Ruby Falls Road. Follow the signs 3.5 miles to Anna Ruby Falls parking area.
