Once you get into the creek, the hike is more challenging and much more interesting. The climb back into the falls is the toughest and most satisfying part! This hike isn't the easiest, so make sure you're ready for it, and take lots of water with you.

Went on a solo hike on a Sunday. it was difficult to find the trail, the directions on how to get there, from this app, are not accurate at all. I had to stop and Google it. Use this address: 2100 powder canyon trail. it will take to the trail head and the parking lot which is free and it was not busy or full at all. It is a dirt and gravel road and it is very uneven so if your car is low, you will hit some road underneath your car. The trail itself was fun. there are some spots that have plenty of shade but most of it was very open. there are alot of forks and different ways to go that take you to other trails. I stuck to the map and followed the app and GPS. it started to get kinda confusing towards the end but watch the GPS from the app and you'll be fine. plenty of inclines and it will challenge you!

Awesome trial! My husband & I never hiked & decided let’s try it. Wow did it kick our butts. We also started at 1300 on a 100 degree day (don’t do that). It took us 3hours round trip. Beautiful views. Definitely wish it had more signs on how far to go. We brought 2-40oz hydroflasks, & a gallon of water + don’t forget some protein or PB&J’s! Overall amazing!

Overall I enjoyed this trail and would do it again. I did this trail in the summer so there was no waterfall at the end but the place where it would be is still pretty cool. The trail is easy for most of the path and gets moderate towards the end. You follow along a paved/dirt road for probably 2 miles and then you find the trail head. From there you follow along a riverbed for about a mile and a half. The last 1/2 mile of trail is alot of bouldering with quite a bit of incline.

Bring lots of water, I brought 2 liters and ran out about a mile from the parking area.

Pretty nice trail. Plenty of hikers, runners, and bikers. Definitely dog friendly. It’s woodsy enough to feel like you’re in the woods and not worrying about getting lost cuz you’re literally in someone’s backyard.

My favorite hike to frequent as a local from Claremont. Not sure if I would rate this trail as difficult. Moderate for sure. Only moderately difficult part IMO are the switchbacks nearing the saddle. Nice mix of shade and sun and makes for a lovely hike as it parallels the creek. Lots of Columbine wild flowers, manzanitas and pines

Great bike trail not usually to crowded. As always start early gets hot in Mt Baldy. Have seen rattlesnakes and deer on this trail so pay attention. Great views from the peak.

Amazing hike! The car wreck was very cool to see! It gets warm...go early! There is not much shade. It's $3 to park in the lot, but there is some street parking nearby. Definitely will do this hike again!

It was one of the hottest forecast days of the year and we got off to a bit of a late start (7:30 ish) - we realized this when, on our way up, we noted lots of hikers already on their way down. What ever you do BRING LOTS OF WATER. Lots means a couple liters NOT one small bottle of Crystal Geyser! I can not tell you how many people we passed that were on their way to heat stroke. Shared our extra water with a few who were out far from the trail head! Bring extra water! (always a good idea anyway)
It's a well marked path, starting with a dirt road for the first mile or so, then up to singletrack through and up the rocks, with rock steps on some of the rockier sections. There is shade to be found. We were early enough that some of the brush provided a great place to just get out of the sun for a moment or two when catching your breath. Although it's a popular hike, we never felt crowded on the trail and never hit any traffic jams - perhaps because of the area high heat warnings. But there were a reasonable amount of people there. It's a nice UP and back Down hike, meaning it's easier to push yourself a bit harder at first knowing that it will be easier going down. The first mile or so had several porta potties and trash bins along the route and the trail was really clean. Not sure if it's like this all the time but perhaps they stepped it up for the July 4 weekend crowds. Really great local hike with easy parking, beautiful views away from the suburban sprawl and cool shaded grassy spots to crash in when you get back down to your car! Would recommend and would definitely do again.

Awwsome hike in to Spruce Grove CG. The campground has a lot of trees so it's great for hammocking. Overall the CG is clean and the outhouses were pretty clean for what they are. I still prefer just digging a cat hole over any outhouse though. There is water at camp (though the water level is low) and should be treated before drinking. Saw a few deer come through camp along with multiple squirrels as well as a small black bear (hanging your food or a bear canister is a must). Also, make sure that you bring bug spray as all of the biting menaces are out in full force.

Great Hike! Note that the actual mileage as shown on the map is 8.9 miles

The trail begins at the back of the parking lot. It is very well maintained and I saw a few dedicated men picking up trash on the trail and at the top. The trail starts to get harder the last two miles. That is where the rock steps begin; however, it's not as difficult as other hikes that I have been on. I was at the gate at 6:00 am when it opened on a weekday and I had the rock to myself for a while at the top. I saw lots of people coming up the trail as I descended. The views are very scenic going up and at the top.

Definitely a difficult hike, especially on a hot day. (It got up to 105 when I went). Be sure to bring lots of water as there is little shade, but the view at the top is worth the climb and the hike back down is pretty easy. Just make sure from the lake Powell parking lot you take the trail to your right and not your left or you will add on an extra mile each way like I did on my hike up by accident.

A great workout. Big inclines and the trail is well marked. It was totally worth it for the great views and of course pics on the rock.

Great hike! Took a little over 2 hours to get up and a little over 1 hour to get down. If you hit the trail early enough, a good chunk of the way up will be in shade. Time of year will determine exactly when that time frame is, but I had cover starting at 7:30am in June. The last 1/3 of the way up is very steep and you might feel like you are on a StairMaster at times, but it is extremely rewarding in the end. The view from the top is incredible. The peak itself, however, is a little underwhelming. Not many exposed rocks to take a seat on and a ton of insects that won't make you want to stay long/touch the log box at the top. Be sure to bring at least 2 liters of water as well for a hotter day. Went through most of my water on the way up and only stopped drinking to ration the rest for the way down.

Nice little training hike. beginning of the hike has about 1/4 mile of shade but after that, it's HOT! Bring a hat, sunscreen and plenty of water. Good Mellow hike right up until the last mile and it get's a bit scrambley with a couple false summits. Watch out for the Yucca and Bramble, there's lot of it up there. Great views and a little log box at the top.

Love this trail but gotta go after a heavy rain to see the waterfall in all its glory...and it’s a long hike take plenty of water and good comfortable shoes a lot of climbing over rocks

I would not recommend this trail. There aren’t many signs so the trail is hard to follow. You end up on a fairly busy and narrow road (with no sidewalk) which leads into Raging Waters. We were passed by several trams and busses. More stress than it was worth.

Awesome hike if you don't mind climbing over and under rocks and fallen trees. I was really beautiful . You should go early in the morning because it gets really hot. The end was where the water fall is supposed to be. It was a very nice adventure and I do recommend.

Quite a hike for a first timer like me but was a good exercise. Nice view.

That "hard" difficulty rating wasn't kidding. The trail begins simple enough. Not a big deal. Eventually however, we begin to climb up a mountain with little to no switchbacks. Just straight up. This hike is definitely not boring. As another poster mentioned, it's with the effort.

This is a well maintained fire road, perfect for a long morning hike with your dog. The road has beautiful views and vistas. Great view of Baldy at the summit. Just be sure to use some natural bug spray.

Dope!! I looove this place!! Very challenging but rewarding once u get to d top n see the potato chip rock.... amazing!! I was able to do in 3 hrs didnt stop n kind of jog here and there on my way back. Hiked all by myself n had a blast!! Will def do it again maybe in nov wen its not too hot !

Long way on a paved road to the BOULDERS. Never seen such big ones! Fun climbing, jumping, slipping on our bottoms.
Missed the top, ran out of time. Will be back!

No waterfall in the summer when we went and the barren waterfall smelled like sulphur.

However, I will say that the bouldering was really fun and made up for the non-existent waterfall.

Hot day bring lots of water, did training hike with backpack made it challenging and a good workout. Jogging down easier than walking due to steep. Went on a Friday morning around 7:30 no crowd at all
