Lot's of flat. I ended up running... Didn't expect the smell from the manmade waterfalls.

You have to kinda scramble to the top but it was fun! Combined with Paradise Falls Loop

Great Hike combined it with Lizard Rock!

One of the only waterfalls in the area so definitely a worthwhile hike. Kinda of boring and flat in some spots, but also has good shade.

Good hills for running, great views. Do the extra lollipop loop at the end for a couple shady spots in the afternoon.

Beautiful but too short

Nice trail, great waterfall! A bit steep in some spots but overall very enjoyable.

Loved it!! I wouldnt rate it as moderate, I thought it was easy, but super fun! Spotted some turtles and ducks too.

Easy, dry (of course SoCal is in a 5 year drought) and offered great views. Water at the falls, however I think it's from a waste water treatment plant in the vicinity. Nice that dogs can be on the trail along with horses. Beautiful sunset and full moon rising!

Really liked this hike. We went to paradise falls and it had to be the best waterfall I've seen yet. The only downside is that you can't go into the water and you probably wouldn't want to anyway since its from the treatment plant nearby. Yikes! The teepee is also pretty cool to see. It was an easy hike until you continue past the waterfall. It begins to incline which is a bit challenging along with the few switchbacks as you get closer to the top. The views are nice once you've reached the top and the way back down is nice and easy. I was a bit scared because of the mountain lion posts but no sightings! Haha! I do want to advise about the bad smells on the trail and you pass the treatment plant. It's pretty intense but it doesn't last for too long. I recommend getting there early as the parking lot gets full and also beware of the poison oak that's around in shady areas.

Very nice trail, not as scenic as it use to be because of the drought.
