A kid friendly trail, this easy hike to nice seasonal waterfall will give you a taste of what Ignacio Valley Preserve has to offer. Approximately 1 mile out and back.

Short, easy hike to a beautiful waterfall. There was plenty of parking when we arrived at 10am. Make sure you wear waterproof shoes! The trail crosses the creek a couple times.

If you're looking for a much longer, strenuous hike, you can do the trail that connects to Big Rock Ridge Road. It was totally empty, but probably had a climb of 2000 feet.

Nice easy hike. Definitely go after some rain fall to see the water fall.

My new favorite spot...great flat walk through lush trees and stream waters. The waterfall at the end is gorgeous and a great spot for meditation with nature!

Went recently. There was no water falling. I assume that the summer and recent drought are to blame. Beautiful hike.
