We love ruby falls. It has a rich history! Go early to avoid the rush. You will be on the tour for about 1.5 hours. It is about a mile walk through the cave. The waterfall is amazing

I expected to be a bit claustrophobic but this tour was so interesting and so well lit I never one felt closed in. The falls are well worth seeing.
