Escorted Rail Tours to Ruby Falls
Venture into Lookout Mountain
Located deep in the heart of Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls is a 145-feet (44-metre) underground waterfall, found within Ruby Falls Cave. In the 1920s Leo Lambert, a local chemist and cave enthusiast, bought land on Lookout Mountain, which he intended to use to exploit Lookout Mountain Cave as a tourist attraction. His aim was to build an entranceway to the cave after the previous entranceway had been closed during the construction of the mountain's railway. During construction of the entranceway, Lambert found a passageway leading to a far more impressive cave with a waterfall at its centre, both of which he promptly named after his wife, Ruby.
