Ruby Falls is inside a cave. The public entrance is atop Lookout Mountain. You ride an elevator down into the cave, and do a tour to the falls. We were there in 1990, and had to wait more than two hours to get into the elevator.

We hiked this trail as part of a loop from point psrk and back. Started out from Point Park via the Bluff Trail (which is beautiful) down past Sunset Rock and Covenant College down to the John smart trail then finally down to Skyuka Springs. b
Beautiful hardwood forest in full fall colors and sandstone cliffs are spectacular. Then we took the trail up to Gum Spring Trail. Gum Spring is 1 mile of of strsight up back to Bluff Trail. I do not recommend this trail unless you are looking for a serious cardio workout. You can get back to Point Park via Cravens House Trail (probably what we should have done). This was a strenuous loop as we covered 2283ft in elevation. This route went from the top of Lookout Mountain to the bottom and back to the top again (13.5 miles). Still was an awesome hike, if your looking for challenge then this is a great loop to try.

Hiking this with my 4 & 6 year old girls was a good time. They loved it. If we continue doing it I'm sure I'll be trail running just to keep up. ;)

Great trail for beginners, plenty of hills and many different trail options. The location is convenient to downtown, although the directions to the trailhead are incorrect on this site. Trailhead is at the top of spears ave. The narrow trails are well used for biking as well as hikers, be prepared to yield quickly.

This trail is awesome . Went from Point Park to Giants Niche and back(6.67 miles). Beautiful views, awesome rock formations, and beautiful sandstone bluffs. Lots of climbers down at Giants Niche. Highly recommend this trail. Oh make sure to take the short trail up to Sunset Rock, view is well worth the climb. Will definitely be back, this is a new favorite.

Been doing this hike since I went to school there in 1972. Sunset rock can be amazing at the right times. Point park and Cravens House are history still. Covenant was an old hotel converted to a Reformed Presbyterian school. One of my alma maters.
