The Angeles National Forest offers natural environments, spectacular scenery, developed campgrounds and picnic areas, swimming, fishing, skiing and the solitude of quiet wilderness areas. Trails winding throughout the forest accommodate hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers and off-highway vehicle enthusiasts.
I assume the easy rating is when the canyon is indeed a "dry stream". The canyon was not dry today and made the many stream crossings exciting but potentially dangerous. If you want to reach the bottom of the falls, expect your feet to get wet, and if you're not sure footed possibly your butt. I would not consider this trail easy when the water is high. Have fun, but be careful.
It’s a pretty easy hike. The road is paved and heavily trafficked for the first couple of miles but relatively quiet afterwards.
I was struck by the scenery on the way in. Perhaps because of that I was a little disappointed with the campground. It isn’t bad but I did feel a little letdown after such a stunning walk-in. Oh, don’t count on the toilets being unlocked so you may want to bring a trowel if you’re planning on camping.
I really enjoyed this trail today in the deep snow. I don't find it challenging enough when there isn't any snow, but the views are great.
I prefer not seeing many hikers so I usually take the side trail to the left about a mile in ... adding somewhere between 1 - 2 mi each way ... but it is more peaceful.
Today I was not so adventurous as there was so much snow. Veered slightly off trail as there were only a few of us out early blazing trail in the snow but made it to the saddle. Round trip 8.1 mi ...
This trip made in the snow is MUCH harder with the snow. Had a great day out.
I noted a review from 4 months ago advising this trail is closed????This is NOT what the local Ranger Station in Acton told me October 2016. In fact, I specifically went into the office and asked about this trail. They ASSured me it was open .... I even got a map and they reconfirmed.
The Forestry Dept. can screw their brains back in and give people correct information! I knew there was a problem when I walked into the Ranger station and 3 people sitting around doing nothing. They were OUT of maps and had not $$ for change. Oh and also they don't take debit/credit cards or checks. CASH only. Wonder how much of that see's the till.
