Paradise Falls Trail is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Thousand Oaks, California that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

The first part of the trail follows Moonridge trail looking down upon Indian Creek. Trail then drops down steeply into an area if volcanic rock with a spectacular 70 foot waterfall plunging into a large pool. The return leg of the loop is an easy meandering trail along the banks of Indian creek, with a number of lovely picnic spots along the way. I promise that you will be surprised that there is such a nice setting amongst the suburban sprawl.
Worth seeing! Trails were clearly marked so it was easy to get to the Falls. The fields are so green it was beautiful to see. Stuck to the 2.8 mile trail but there are more options to continue down other trails if you want to continue on. I crossed the stream to snap pics from the other side of the Falls and I'm glad I did because the view from the other side was much better. For pictures and more insight:
great for kids, but a little crowded on a Sunday morning. Still, we enjoyed it!
Ideal for kids, dogs, and elderly...
Beautiful place to hike...
Nice trail and waterfall. Easy to hike too!
Nice hike today with my family
it was a great trail. well labeled so we knew which trail to stay on and which options could take us to other things. we took the trail down to the waterfall. we enjoyed the teepee on the way. there were several places with water fountains. their were rest areas available on the way with two picnic tables. it did get a little crowded but it was so beautiful and so worth it. the rain brought so good water and kept the stream flowing and the waterfall was beautiful.
easy for family
Short, easy hike for a cool view or a little waterfall. Best seen in the winter months after some rain. Trail can get very busy though, especially on the weekends so go early to beat the crowds.
