Nestled in the Etiwanda foothills is The Etiwanda Falls Trail. Part of the North Etiwanda Preserve, it is a nice out and back hike suitable for the whole family. Lots of great scenery and photo opportunities. There are also many informational markers along the way to explain the significance of this area in its role of water supply to the Inland Empire. The falls are found on National Forest property just outside of the current boundaries of the North Etiwanda Preserve. By going to the falls, you will cross over privately owned property which is not currently a designated part of the Preserve. The private property crossed is still a habitat preservation site for which the same conservation practices apply, although not fully affiliated with the Preserve at this time.

Beautiful fall! I went with my dad & sister today. Such a beautiful day, too! Went all the way up to reach the waterfall but it's worth it!

A great hike for beginners and for those getting back into shape. Sweet scenery. Water was flowing with tons of water.

for being the first time to go it's pretty easy and would definitely do it again..my boys build a small pool or dame up there so hopefully next time we go it's still available for a little dip in the water

Hiked to the end of the trail and another mile up stream bush whacking. Didn't find much else too interesting but a good opportunity to get away from the crowds on the weekend if you're comfortable hopping back and forth across the creek.

The hike was enjoyable and doable for a beginner hiker. The sad part was the trash along the way and tagging on rocks. Also, hikers will clearly see a sign at the entrance that states "no dogs allowed" but you will see quite a few of them. Make sure you watch your step as the dog owners will not bother picking up after their dogs :(

When me and my hubby go we take the scenic route, the one that loops around the trail...adds about 1.5miles. when you get to the waterfall its cool cause their lot of trees and a river that goes into the forrest. Probably can follow it up..
