Great trail. Walked with my 10 years old daughter and her friend. Good walk out.

Good Long trail steady climb. And obviously the awesome photo opp at the end

Done this one several times. Though it's best in late winter and spring because the water flow is stronger, it also makes for a greatsummer hie because it is 80 percent shaded and mostly easy climbing, when there is climbing. There is a section in he middle that gets a little steep, with some cliff exposure, but it is short. If you or your children are afraid of heights, you may want to avoid this one.

Easily accessible and an easy-to-moderate hike means lots of people and dogs. Go early to avoid owners letting their dogs run amuck etc. With all the wild fires raging, it’s nice to know there can still be a safe trail to hike within easy reach from the city. The water volume is pretty low now due to the late season, but there is still a small water fall to reward the hike.

Love everything about this hike.

Easy. Easy. Easy.

Beautiful hike. Difficult but worth it! Start early park closes gates strictly 5pm

Easy hike with plenty of people on a November Sunday late afternoon. Dry creekbed.

Perfect to test our skills

This is a very enjoyable trail and easy to trek. But there is not enough directions on where it starts and ends. You just have to guess at what you’re doing.

Very easy hike. Very packed on weekends. Plenty of shade. Bathrooms at trailhead were clean. Plenty of parking. The only reason for a three star rating was due to how many people were on the trail.

Great for a short hike not to hard, but little water coming down the falls.

Great trail. Good for dogs. Probably not kids, though. Very steep in places.

Nice hike, with much needed shade. Watch your step, don't be like me who talks more than pays attention to whats in front of him

The waterfall is minuscule this time of year. The trail offers a lot of shade and is moderately challenging. Some parts of the trail was super narrow. You need an adventure pass to park. If you get carsick easily, beware. The road is quite windy to get to the trailhead.

Nice but a lot of up and down and much of it is heavily trafficked.

weird to see the graffiti and smokers but it's a good hike with kids.

We did this trail as a night hike and it was pretty awesome. May want to bring gloves as there is a ton of bouldering to be had.

Great area and very pretty with some Fall colors. Popular place with lots of people. Sadly many don't know trail ettitquette, but we were impressed that there wasn't much (any) trash or grafitti for the amount of traffic. To get to the falls go past it, take the left fork to the creek and go left along the creek. Or take the right at the creek to go to Bear Canyon.

WAY too crowded. Too many people. Dog crap everywhere and no one picks it up. Trash and crap graffiti. People on the trail don’t have etiquette and will block the whole trail and go slow. Won’t allow others to pass. Waterfall is unimpressive.

October 22: Solo’d to the waterfall and only one wrong turn.

Really well-maintained trail, nice variety in pathways, and beautiful views. Go AS EARLY as you can get there to enjoy some sense of solitude and beautiful light along the way.

For runners, a great place to practice decision-making for when to walk up steeps and when to run- and as a bonus, BOMBING downhill fun all the way.

A peaceful Sunday morning hike through a colorful, boulder-strewn canyon. Lots of woodpeckers to keep us entertained! A bit of fall color on the way to the waterfall, which is very zen-like: a small trickle flowing into a reflective pool. It’s shady much of the way, so being a light jacket is you’re hiking in the morning.

This is a relatively easy hike but, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's very crowded on the weekends

Great hike! We ended up going all the way over to the bear canyon camp ground and back! Great views and good walking trails.

Tips: bring a map and not your bicycle! There is no service anywhere and you will have to carry your bike....

It’s horrible here on the weekend... Lots of trash, dog poop, people making out and people smoking! Never on the weekend again!

Any waterfall because of the rain yesterday?
