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.

Lovely half mile paved walk. Falls are gorgeous. We had so much fun even in the rain. Would definitely recommend! more »
It’s a killer of uphill walk if you’re over 70 like I am. Payoff is double waterfall with over 100 foot drops. Creek runs from parking lot up to falls (approx 1/2 mile) with great photo opportunities.... more »
