Hamilton County Apartments for Rent(hide county information)
Southern Tennessee’s rambling, narrow valleys and broad ridges and plateaus are a gorgeous setting for Hamilton County. This transition from the Appalachian Mountains to the Cumberland Plateau creates an amazing landscape of waterfalls, caves, cliffs, and gorges. This is the place for nature lovers and outdoor adventurers, and Hamilton County is in the heart of it all.
Ruby Falls, an underground waterfall that cascades an impressive 145 feet, is located within Lookout Mountain’s impressive caverns. Ruby Falls Cave is formed from limestone and contains beautiful cave formations in addition to the amazing waterfall. Ruby Falls and the entire Lookout Mountain Caverns is a National Historic Landmark.
Raccoon Mountain Caverns is another cave system that includes more than five and a half miles of passageways. Visitors to the cave system can also pan for gemstones, stay at the campground or cabins, and enjoy go-karts and nearby hiking and biking trails.
