This Short Hike In Georgia Takes You To These Incredible Hidden Twin Waterfalls

If you have $3, you can trek to see this landmark.

Everyone loves a good waterfall, but what about two? You can take a beautiful and calming hike up to see these twin waterfalls in North Georgia that are monumental to see at least once in your life. Anna Ruby Falls is located in Helen, Georgia and needs to be your next go-to hike.  

The entire hike is only 0.9 miles, so you, your friends, your kids, and your pets can all trek up to the falls for a quick trip, with little strain on your body.

You will be traveling uphill for the first part of your trip, but coming down will be a breeze after you have taken in the beauty of the waterfalls. 

As you make your way up to the main attractions, you will see a creek that flows down from the falls and down the mountain as you walk up.

You know you have almost made it when you start to smell the water and hear the crashing of the falls. You will also see large wooden platforms so you can get an excellent view. 

According to Atlanta Trails, the two waterfalls are named Curtis Creek (left) and York Creek (right). Curtis Creek is over 150 feet tall, while York Creek is only 50 feet, but they both look incredible as you watch them flow and crash together. 

Make sure you snap some photos so you can look back at this view forever (the waterfalls are very photogenic). Once you are done with your adventure, you can head on down to the picnic tables and have a snack. 

It can get very busy on hot summer days, so make sure that you show up early to beat the crowds. 

If you are traveling down past North Georgia, this is a great break point in your trip to just relax and experience what this trail has to offer. Most of the trail is shaded by greenery and trees, so no need to worry about sweating to death as you walk up and from the falls. 

For those 16 and up, there is a $3 fee to enter the trail and it is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The address is 3455 Anna Ruby Falls Rd, Helen, GA 30545.
