“Beautiful!!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Walk to see the falls was not difficult and well worth it!! Nice gift shop and helpful associates. We visited on a cloudy, overcast day which was perfect. Very nice areas to view the falls and relax before walking back to the parking area.

“A Must See! Absolutely Gorgeous!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

For only a $3.00 per person entrance/parking fee, you get a nice paved place to park your vehicle, a beautifully maintained paved walking trail to the falls, nice bathroom facilities, a place to buy refreshments, a gift shop and, of course, a view of the absolutely amazingly beautiful falls! A must see! Trail ~that follows along & crosses the river ~ is steep in a couple of places, but there are plenty of benches along the trail to stop and catch your breath. Lots of interesting informational signs along the trail. Nice viewing spots at the falls with seating.

“Pretty Waterfalls - $6.00 Entrance Fee”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

You will need to drive about 5 miles to get to the falls through Unicoi State Park. Once you arrive there is a $6.00 per person entrance fee. At the bottom of the falls you will find picnic areas as well as public restrooms. It is a 1/2 mile hike to the falls. For those that are not in the best shape, please be aware that although the path is paved it is very steep in some spots. Once you arrive at the falls there are viewing decks and sitting areas.

“Beautiful falls and creek”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Lovely waterfalls. Be prepared for a little hike that is pretty much up hill the whole way. I think the hike is less than one half of a mile. Restrooms and store are right at the parking lot.

If you are a little more adventurous, consider taking the trail from Anna Ruby Falls through the back country to Unicoi State Park. The hike is 5 miles. Beautiful country!

The only fee for this attraction is a small parking fee.

Someone in a wheel chair could go part of the way to the falls but I don't think they could go all the way to the base.
