One of my new favorite trails. Pass by beautiful homes in way to trailhead. Starts out steep but great view and can picnic at top before proceeding. Meanders through valley and rock formations. Slow ascent towards end overlooking Old Las Palmas. Not sure where waterfall is. Instead of turning back or continuing along Museum trail, we took the climb down to street and walked through the mid century neighborhoods back to our bikes at trailhead. It was a wonderful terrain and urban hike.
