My kids and I enjoyed the hike. We went a couple of days after it rained and managed to see a tiny trickle at the waterfall area. Even without much water, it is a beautiful stroll. As mentioned by others the first part of the "hike" is along a paved street lined with beautiful homes. The view of the ocean from this part of the hike is beautiful. Once you get to the unpaved trail you are surrounded by beautiful trees, bushes, and grasses on a mostly shaded walk to the spot where the falls once existed.

I was expecting to see the waterfalls, but it's all dried out when I came! Overall, it's a great hike.
