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.

Easy trail which is pretty flat except for the short period of vertical gain at the top which is worth the view!

This is a great local TO trail which leads to beautiful views of TO, North Ranch, & parts of Simi. The first 1.5 miles has a pretty decent uphill, but it levels out mostly at the top. There are plenty of chances to add distance and peaks throughout the trail as well. We went during the week, towards the evening time and only saw 2-3 people. It's a good trail for dogs too, just not during rattlesnake season. Sunset was beautiful! I will definitely do this trail again.
