Amazing place ❤️

a lot of people

A couple a different trails to choose from, one easy, one not to easy, but doable. This trail is not hard and the view at the top is very nice. Would definitely do it again.

Great go to trail. Nice views of Riverside. Always packed, but a good workout.

Pretty easy, short hike if you’re only going to the rock itself. It’s a really dusty trail with a lot of horse poop, but I wasn’t surprised since it’s so heavily traveled by horses. When we went, there was actually an event going on at the equestrian center below, so we took our dog over to watch after the hike. The people were very nice and courteous to us.

Very busy, paved hike. We always take the “off the beaten path” trail back which is down the mountainside rather than using the pavement. Good hike for kids and beginners.

Really fun trail! We went around 7:30am and heard a lot of coyotes yipping about halfway into the hike. We took the trail all the way up to the highway and ended up doing an out and back instead of one of the loops you can follow past two trees trail. Very few other hikers, we only saw three people the whole hike, which was about 4.5 miles. We had three dogs and saw a coyote at one point so we turned back. Definitely would do again but be watchful for coyotes in the morning.

I needed my hiking sticks for this hike. Be sure to climb the big rocks at the top. There’s a rope to help get up...the view from the top of the rocks

Easy, fun and beautiful. I’ll go back in a Heartbeat ❤️

Where or where do I even begin... Firstly, regardless of what's written here or everyone else who spoke their minds... let me tell you how this trail led to me and my wife almost dying. It all started when we found the semi trail, I say semi because let's face it, it was barely a trail to begin with. Dead leaves and trees everywhere, making it almost impossible to know if you're going the right way or not, and making it hard to keep going. Now this next part I will admit is more our fault than the trails and I should have known better being an avid hiker, but needless to say, I was feeling adventurous and thought, let's do it. As a quick side note, I don't know how so many people took pictures of this "Lewis Falls" but there isn't any waterfall at the end of this hell road, just lots of rocks. As we get far enough, mind you we got there pretty late, it was roughly 3:45pm, we decide to hike up the steep incline, thinking if we get a better view we'll find it or at least get to a road or path. That was a grave mistake. As we climb our way up, on our hands and knees, not looking down for fear of our lives, the sun starts to set. We finally make it to the top and it was not what we were expecting. A bunch of small trees with thorns and branches everywhere making it really hard to get through. Not a path, and not a way to see anything aside from the city which seemed like was one thousand miles away. As we brawl our way through the thick brush, getting scratched up and cutting our pants and hands and legs, there was even a branch that hit my left eye which was very bad. My contact broke without me realizing and it was excruciatingly painful. We reach the semi top and find a spot were there were less of those thorned bastards, and decided to wait it out til morning where we will make our dangerous ascent back down. It was cold, we were running out of food and water, and my eye and arms and legs were throbbing as were my wife's as well. The night seemed to drag on forever as the sun refused to come up and while she was able to sleep for a few hours I stayed very much awake in case of any animal noises that were too close. I kept looking out at the city of Azusa and was determined that this will not be the night my flame gets extinguished. Time had never gone so slow in my life and my appreciation for being surrounded by people and buildings began to increase steadily. Now, I'm sure many people go camping and to them it's not a big deal, to stay in the mountains over night, but with little resources and no fire, and the thought and possibility of not safely returning home, it was very rough, and I know that many people have been stranded before, and so I can now be a part of that statistic. As cars were passing far away we signaled with our flashlights and screamed HELP, but no one stopped. We realized we were on our own. Somehow my wife managed to get a signal and we called 911. We told them where we were and just before the decision was made to get a helicopter, her signal faded and the call was lost. The sun finally slowly manages to peak through the horizon my body made movements before I could even think. I was breaking branches and clearing a path for us so we can get through without damaging ourselves more. We make it to the edge and start to slowly but carefully slide down. As we reach close to the bottom we hear voices and it was the Search and Rescue Team. We tell them we are fine and are coming down. They inform us to stay where we are and a helicopter is coming. I was worried it would be an expensive ride so I encouraged my wife to keep slowly sliding so we can avoid it. We got to the bottom just as the helicopter arrived and we skipped the ride. We talked with the rescue team, two really great guys who I was as happy to see as any of my close friends. We walked back with them and there were police cars and twenty people waiting for us. I was so thankful and grateful to see them all and apologized for causing alarm and panic and for calling them to begin with since we were able to get back on our own. It was one hell of an experience, one which neither my wife nor me will ever forget, and we have pictures and videos to prove it in case you think I made this all up. But alas, we are home, safe and sound, with cuts and bruises and splinters everywhere, ruined and torn clothes and holes in our boots but still alive. A little wiser now and with a new appreciation for living in a tiny apartment and being surrounded by people. One star because we are still in pain, and it was rough, but really this was a story which we will have for the rest of our lives and a chance to prove, we were able to overcome the obstacles and survive.

Great easy trail, very populated during weekends.

Nice little workout. Always busy. Nice views of Riverside on a clear day.

Great views great hike

Really nice, small, waterfall for very little effort. The hike up through the creek is great. You weave to either side of the flowing creek. The creek has a nice shallow flow, with crystal clear water. You're in the shade almost the entire time. Would def come back during the summer.

This hike can probably be accessed from Milliard Camp parking lot a bit further down the road, since the GPX route takes you right through Milliard Camp anyway. This might be better idea for some, as the section between the marked parking area and Milliard Camp is single track and is accessed by a LOT of mountain bikers. We were there early Sat morning and prob had about 20+ bikers passed us.

nice little fun trail.

This hike is ok. You are mainly hiking through rocks at the beginning and then Bonita Falls isn’t even pointed out with signs your have to find it yourself pretty much (it’s on the left about a mile down the rocks by a huge tree). There’s a TON of graffiti and trash. The waterfall is very pretty when there’s a lot of water but there’s always been a lot of people every time I go. The creek is pretty too but on the warmer days there’s tons of people partying around the creek leaving trash and dirty diapers. Such a shame that people have 0 respect.

Easy quick hike. Stayed awhile taking pics. Towards the end u have to go to the right and the heart rock is at the bottom.

Beautiful trail in the snow. There are markers to help guide you through the snow. The views you get are fantastic.

Well maintained trail mostly under the canopy of White Alders, Western Sycamors, Canyon Live Oak and CA Bay Laurel trees in the canyon.

Great hike for young and old

Easy trail with pretty views. Well marked in the snow!

Took a different way this time and went a little further then the pumpkin. I love this hike now. Not too easy but not too difficult.

Awesome and scenic trail! We have done this numerous times. If your lucky you will see an amazing waterfall!!!

My husband and I completed this hike on November 21. We really enjoyed this trail! For such a short hike, it offers a lot of variety... pond, wilderness, grassy area, bridges, etc. We also really enjoyed the informational plaques sprinkled throughout the hike... very educational! And we were there during the fall, so we got some nice colors and falling leaves.

There are a couple steep parts so maybe not ideal for strollers or elderly. Other than that, I'd recommend this hike for anyone!
