Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
Formed from two separate streams merging into the twin waterfall, Anna Ruby Falls provides hikers with a quiet respite in the center of a national forest. The falls are accessible via a 0.8 km (0.5 mi) paved trail from the parking lot and features benches along the way. Winding along Smith Creek, the trail gives information on the local environment; you can admire the waters merging into Smith Creek from the viewing point. The Lion's Eye trail is a specially designed route for the visually impaired, providing handrails and braille signs. Head to the visitor center for tickets. A gift shop sells local crafts and paintings next door. Remember to pack good walking shoes, as the paths can be slippery and wet. Using our online itinerary creator, Helen attractions like Anna Ruby Falls can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Short paved walkway to beautiful Falls. Lots to see walking up a slight slope. Can get crowded on weekends. Best to visit early in the day. Small parking fee but well worth the price once you get to.....  more »
  • Great waterfall. The walk up is paved and short but it is fairly steep. There are a couple of nice benches to stop and rest if needed. The park that the falls are located in is beautiful and there.....  more »
  • You HAVE to make this short hike! A 0.4 mile walk/hike (one way) with a beautiful creek beside you the whole way. This is my favorite of all waterfalls I've seen!  more »
