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.

It's hard when you wear a heavy baby on your back and it's 100+ out but definitely worth it! All terrain strollers will work through this rocky trail.

I just finished this trail this morning. This is not a 6.8 mile out and back trail, it is 3.4 miles. There is no shade until you get to the end where the falls are, leave early to beat the heat. I left at 8:00am and it was warm on the way up. The falls at the top are a nice treat.

This hike was extra hard today because of the heat, but it was so worth it!!!! My 11 yr old enjoyed it.

It was a challenging hike for me. I'm working on building my resistance.

Pretty chill. Hoping to see more of a waterfall but in the middle of a drought, guess it's the best Mother Nature could do. The rocky trail the first 2 miles was a burn but I'd probably do this hike again.

Hot, no shade. Worth it when you get to the end there's a lil stream of cold water.

Way up is a fair incline, but nothing to hard. Once at top, it is a shady beautiful hidden lil spot. Waterfalls are senic and romantic. Take a snack and a friend and enjoy.
