Great hike! I would say this is a fairly easy hike with a few spots that maybe a little challenging for the less experienced hiker, but nothing frequent stops won't get you through. Trail is nicely marked and well maintained. Nice variety of scenery.
This is a great hike to take kids on along with the family pet as an introduction to the outdoors. It is mostly flat and open, but it has a nice mesa along the north eastern side on the Engelmann loop trail. Speaking of the Engelmann oak, it is a prefect hike to see these blue-green leafed beauties. There is a good stand of these some what rare trees which are also called the Pasadena Oak, Quercus engelmannii is their binomial name and they are native only to the San Diego area.
Great trail for a fall hike. It rained the the night before and the morning of our hike till about 10:00am. Landscape and views were beautiful. No water flowing in the falls as it's too early in the season. I highly recommend this one for fall, winter, and early spring. It's a little exposed for the summer heat of Southern California. Enjoy!
