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.

Yes, it is a small and easy trail that's paved, but it's nice and easy for all the youth in one's family. What many seem to be forgetting is that there's a longer trail going right that and is a pretty good hike itself.

boring. anticlimactic. it's a paved trail and the most exciting factor was how quickly it took to walk back to the parking lot.

Beautiful short walk along the water. It is shaded and paved so it is great for strollers and small children. Nice payout at the end of the trail with two gorgeous waterfalls.
