This trail is easy for kids and most adults. My 76 year old father-in-law struggled on the way up because of the elevation gain, but made it. the falls are beautiful even if difficult to see the top from the viewing area. we went on a Sunday morning and the trail was, in my opinion, crowded.

The pricing is $3 per person over the age of 16. It seems weird to me they would charge per person rather than per car, but I don't make the rules!

Do try to get here earlier in the day to avoid the huge crowds and line at the pay gate.

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.
