Beautiful place

I have been wanting to do this one for a while. There was no water when I went but it was still pretty cool. To get there it is all down hill, that means it is a pretty steep hike on the way back. Every one says it is crowded. I went late afternoon and there were only a handful of people out. Most of the time I was just completely by myself. Cool hike though!

Don't trust G-maps to get you there. Gibralter Rd is currently gated and locked where it forks from East Camino Cielo. Tried driving further to find that Forest Route 5N20 is also gated and locked. Per the USFS website it looks like you might be able to get to the trailhead from Highway 154 via Paradise Rd, but I didn't make it out that far.

Dislike. No shade. Lots of graffiti and trash.

Amazing views.

Nice moderate hike, some cool places on the way

Went on it today was pretty easy but had a great time and saw such wonderful views

Amazing hiking. All the trail was very quiet so you could hear the sound of nature.

Great hike in our local mountains!! Easy trail to follow. Challenging going up, but quick recovery on the down. Watch out for mountain bikers!!

Rocky trail; beware of taking children. Absolutely beautiful and fantastic. A must see

Really nice hike! Had a great time. Please watch out for snakes. We found two on our trail.

Dope trail dope views dope! there was snow towards the end but didn’t bring micro spikes so it was kind of sketchy.

Love this hike. Can be super packed on the weekends so come during the week during the middle of the day. Beautiful little oasis at the bottom of the falls. Don't walk across the reeds and cattails just let nature be and respect it from a distance :)

Arrived at 0630 on a Saturday and gate was closed. Who's in charge around here?

Good hike with a payoff stream to chill at at the top. I love the incline which is hard but not so hard for hat footing becomes an issue.
It’s unfortunate that folks go ghetto and have the urge to paint their crap on rocks or play music so loud that others can hear it 100 yards away.

Great trail. Cool off in the pool. Take lots of water!

Fun, but no water even after heavy rain fall.

Me and my son did this hike two weeks ago and we really like it the only thing that there was no water but it was breezy and nice, no rope though we were looking forward to use the rope but we did have fun!

nothing's marked every sign was graffitied over the trail is very rocky and you have a incline all the way to the falls if you go past the first fall and stay to your left there is a second one which is nicer ,the veiws are decent but not sure if we will be going back

Steady incline on loose rocks for about 1.75 miles. Small waterfall at top with small creek. Worth the hike. Took about 45min to get up and 30 min down. Rocks are slick by the waterfall, so plz watch your kids.

Great hike! Clearly marked, beautiful views, steady climb and well maintained!

It was great, but nothing special!

Great hike, nice views, not too strenuous and beautiful weather

Great hike. Beautiful with different views that are amazing. Trail is not rocky which I love. Some switch backs but not many. The peak is incredible. It can get windy but we got lucky and it was calm. The tower allows you to see forever views.

Nice hike. We got there around 0915 and parking was tight, this was a fall morning. Trail is exposed, so bring a hat and make sure to wear sunscreen. Did the Paradise Falls trail with an added leg bypassing the water treatment plant down the valley. Neat to see a water fall in the LA area this time of year, and the hike along the creek was also pleasant. Lots of families, which is always nice to see. Also passed a couple mountain bikers. Plenty of options to extend your hike, and some great views throughout the hike.

plenty of things to do on the bike. has it all

This trail is ok, but not worth going out of your way for. Very dry and dusty. A few good views but throughout a lot of the trail you can still see neighborhoods. I went around sunset and ran into a large rattlesnake right near the trail! The waterfall was little and serene but very busy with other people. Probably a trail best for families.

Amazing a good work out getting up there but so worth the time and we seen three amazing water falls .Will be going again!!

Enjoyed this easy hike with my 4 year old. Trail was a lil challenging for my lil one but we managed to complete within 3 hours. He enjoyed the rock climb up the chain of waterfalls. Coming down was too easy for both of us. I thought the hike up was a steady slight incline. Whole hike is no shade until the falls. Great picnic spot. Cool exploration for the lil ones. New favorite spot.
