Waterfall Trail is a 4.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Newhall, California that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from April until September.
Trail is pretty mangled due to the recent fires. There was no waterfall and very little streams anywhere. There is still a lot of burnt trees and debris. Lots of dirt mixed ash on the ground. Still a great hike. Lots of rocks to climb over which was fun
As advertised, nice, shady, moderate trail. the trail has mostly slight grades except for a few spots where you know you are climbing or descending, beautiful hike this time of year, even though you are close to a main road, this hike makes you forget that you are so close to the city. really the only thing to watch out for are the land mines people let their dogs leave on the trail. for as crowded as it was today the park should of had more maintenance people on duty, only to police up the trash people had left in a few places. the out houses (porta potties) I have to say were amazingly clean and supplied. we only used one of them but we were extremely pleased with it. overall, great day and great hike. being our first time there I did speak to an employee at the wild life center, very polite and helpful, he had a great personality. excellent choice of people to have working on such a crowded day. We will return to hike a different trail next time. very pleased.
