easy hike, not too many people were there which made it nicer.

Nice shaded trail but steep to get to falls. Hard to find trails or where to park.

A beautiful water fall.

overgrown and unmaintained, would recommend having the city maintain the trail a bit, this little canyon can get sketchy

Nice short hike with some water to get your feet wet. Family friendly with lots of shaded areas to relax.

Lots of rocks, would recommend hiking shoes and water shoes for when you get to falls. It’s really nice though, I’m for sure going back.

The trail was nice, and had a lot of shadows. But the entrance was hard to find. You have to go in front of the camp, then follow the pavement until you see a dirt road.

no waterfall, no water at all right now. July 24 2018. A very overgrown trail, wear pants and good hiking shoes, sunscreen. The hike involved climbing rocks while slipping around. I will be back when there is water.

Lots of shade, nice breeze and beautiful. Trail is easy at first but steep towards end. A lot of people. . Not enough water for waterfall in July. Didn’t see the heart rock - don’t know if you have to climb down rocks to see it.

Beautiful day for a hike to the falls. So disheartened to see the graffiti along the way. I support art and expression, but please don't use Mother Nature as your canvas.

Great walk, beautiful views with a refreshing stop at the falls. The only problem is people trashing the place and not taking care of the mess they leave behind.

This trail’s parking needs a recreation pass

first trail...it was neat...did it with my son impromptu! (and made it!)

First time hiking this trail. Our 6 year old had no problem keeping up and led the way most of the hike. Great scenery.

Good for beginners! Really nice place!

Easy

Short, but nicely inclined walk on a paved road. The only dirt you will actually hike to the trail is loose and steep.
Small, beautiful waterfall with an upper tier/pool that is dangerously accessible.
Gorgeous views!
Went on a Wednesday and there were only a couple other hikers. Had he waterfall to ourselves for about 30 minutes.

Easy trek with our dog. Some spots required a little extra footwork around trees where the sand was slippery, but neither kids nor adults were phased by this. The temp was perfect for the summertime- breezy and cool. To get to the trailhead, you’ll drive through a camp parking lot over a very shallow creek (at least when we were there) and make a couple windy turns before reaching an open space for several cars to park. The trail is covered in shade with lots of wildflowers and a little stream below the path. You can actually get to the heart in the picture if you climb down from the trail and climb up the rocks.

Short hike on a paved fire road with steady incline. Great leg and cardio workout. The trail leads to a waterfall which requires careful footing to get to. Don't be hasty; go slow! Hike the rest of the fire road to the Notch and grab yourself a beer and lunch at the restaurant with a view of the valley below!

nice easy loop. some sections were closed for fire recovery. I took my dog and had a good back pack in and out. even with closures it was easy to navigate around.

a great beginner hike!

Nice and easy

nice view took my 3 year old he loved it.

Lots of people and groups, kids, somewhat scenic trail. The closet parking area is indicated. We went a bit farther than the main tourist attraction, but wasn't worth it. Scrambling on rocks, cliffs somewhat fun.

Beautiful scenery. Easy walk. Be careful when walking across highway 243 to the lake from the parking lot. Traffic coming from Idyllwild has no pedestrian traffic sign.

This hike was not too difficult. My wife and I are both in our sixties and found the level of activity just right. Beautiful meadow at the top of the loop.

The trail itself was mostly sand and gravel so you were not constantly walking over rocks and uneven terrain.

Easy, fun, family trail
