Rv’ing to Ruby Falls

by | Aug 1, 2016

There’s much to see and do in Chattanooga and the trek into Ruby Falls is a must. When you arrive atop Lookout Mountain, a turn to the right takes you to the registration desk. The building is really something made of a post and beam structure. But we weren’t there to study man-made structures, we came for the falls.

We took the advice from the locals and went mid-week to minimize the crowds. Great advice. We paid admission and walked directly to the elevator to start our decent to over 1,000 feet to the bottom of the falls. From the elevator, your group has around a 20 minute walk to the falls. It’s well-lit and not a difficult walk, but there are gradual inclines and steps along the way. The space is vast along the way with high crevice ceilings with some rather fascinating geological formations. It’s hard to say if those who are claustrophobic would be challenged, while not tight, I would caution that you are many hundreds of feet below ground. No one in our group of 20+ seemed to be bothered.

The pictures at the bottom speak better than anything I could write in this post. I will say that it was a wonderful experience, truly an amazing natural wonder. The falls are amazing and you are given ample time to photograph with camera, video and of course, all the selfies anyone could want. When you walk in, the falls are dark and moments later, the falls are lit to show this nature wonder.

In addition to the falls, you have access to an outside observation desk and gift shop. The deck provides amazing vistas of downtown Chattanooga and the Tennessee River Valley. Joan and I had a blast at Ruby Falls; we just wish we had made the visit some time ago before the kids left home. They would have loved it.

As always, I Live RV Life, Jerry
