This is a nice, easy walk to the falls. It's paved the entire way making it accessible for many that can't reach the other falls. The falls themselves were gorgeous and worth the short walk to them. It is a pretty crowded trail, which is honestly to be expected given the friendly path.

I didn't like that it was $3 a person to enter and this was all there really was to see. I wouldn't mind the higher fee if there was more to see and do.

We took this hike recently and it was great for a short hike with lots of great photo ops. This trail connects to Smith Creek Trail which is unpaved and more strenuous. Anna Ruby Falls Trail is paved and generously wide for passing. Parents with good strollers could make this trail. There are several benches along the way for resting if needed. We saw many kids making the climb. Do be aware of snakes as we spotted at leat one, and there are several warning signs.

Very pretty falls. The trail is paved and is easy for children. There is a $6 park fee. There is a visitors center and shop at trailhead along with some nice bathrooms. At the falls, there are two platforms large enough to accommodate groups. Well worth the short hike.

Well maintained trail, paved the entire way.
Pleasant surroundings and the waterfall is the payoff.
