Beautiful hike with some great views from the top and along meteor trail. Sequoia trail was closed due to a landslide.

Love this trail, we have done it a couple of times. Last visit 1/9/19 a day or two after rain. Small waterfalls were running. it was foggy and overcast, providing a somewhat mystical experience. Trail was not invasively muddy despite the rains. We used this trail and others in the area last winter to train for our March 2018 Machu Picchu trek.

Perfect hike! There were several waterfalls that were more impressive than i imagined! Defidently worth checking out after a few rainy days this time a year

Chasing waterfalls! Great views, awesome sounds and some wet feet! Aside from it being very busy, it is a must hike!

Very shady trek, wide trail, multitude of trees. Overall a great little escape only minutes away. A restroom along stream trail, nothing on west ridge portion.

Hey there! Anyone know if the trail is open? I went by today and the road was closed...

Thanks!

Delightful winter walk with fine views (and sounds) of the falls and the countryside (and Clayton) to the north. There was some mud in mid January but nothing we couldn't navigate. The hike is a mix of fire roads and single track. There are some steep slippery parts of the actual waterfall section of the trail so we recommend a hiking pole. Nonetheless, we did 8 miles in 4.5 hours with plenty of ooh-ahh stops so thought the trail was moderate for us.
We started at the Mitchell Canyon Nature Center and went counterclockwise (see https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/diablo-waterfall-jaunt) . This entry has a fee and the hike to the falls is longer than Regency Gate (our loop was just under 8 miles), but you get better parking, bathrooms, nature center, boot cleaning station and the satisfaction of supporting your state parks.

great views along the way, and great payoff at the waterfall along the beach. be careful on the climb down to the beach.

This hike is awesome. Great ocean views, lakes, forest, waterfalls. It is one of my favorite local hikes. Well worth the trip even though it’s pretty heavily trafficked.

Gorgeous trail with great wildflowers, rolling green hills and waterfalls at every step.

Hiked this trail about two weeks ago and it was perfect. Very lightly trafficked. I recommend going counterclockwise to go through the neighborhood and “trespassing” section. Trail was a bit overgrown. About half the trail gets shaded. Great vistas and forest environments.

This trail was perfect for a beginner had a little of everything.. views, shady trees, rough areas, we loved will do it again

Wonderful hike! Arrived at the parking lot 10am Saturday 12/29/18 and there were still space. Relatively easy trail with indicators to the fall. There is some rock scrambling involved, so be careful. When we left 1pm, the parking lot was packed and there were cars parked along the dirt road.

Fun hike with friends on New Year day. Gorgeous views, a little crowded but tons of cool graffiti art in the Ana dined buildings and bunkers.

One of the best work-for-reward ratios in California. A wildly versatile out and back with very little technical terrain until the final approach to the falls. There you'll find amazing views of the pacific amongst a steady flow of water from the falls. The cliffs are an amazing spot for some food and drinks, or simply personal reflection. I also recommend the slightly more technical walk down to the beach on a steep trail off to the right (looking to the Pacific). There you'll see the falls finish their journey to the ocean. Don't sit too close to the walls though, as the rockfall is a consistent reminder that the erosion that created these cliffs is a never-ending job for mother nature.

Soooo worth it. Such a beautiful hike and the falls are one of a kind. The white arrow at the turn off is almost faded so be aware of where you are going.

6 or 3 miles hikes loop! amazing views and it was fun and challenging getting across some big rocks on the trail. Would definitely do it again!

The start and end of the trail next to the creek were the nice parts of the trail. The whole climbing seemed pointless since it wasn't very scenic either.

Steep incline worth the views!

Awesome views!

Expect the unexpected here.. this was pretty challenging for me! But the clear views on a perfect day made it one of my best trail runs!!

If you only do Fall Creek Loop it's a moderate hike, that is beautiful. Lots of rocks, roots, trees and some climbing over/under fallen trees. But a super beautiful and fun hike. there are lots of side trails you can take, just know where you are heading as some of them are pretty hard and can lead you a long way from your car!

Great hike. Amazing views. Elevation change can be a bit strenuous but totally worth it. I also really enjoyed going through the welcome center at the summit.

Beautiful trail in San Jose but feels set apart. The park ranger was super friendly too!

If your car-less and coming from San Fran, an easy and affordable way to enjoy Muir Woods is: 1. Take bus(#30)/ferry to Sausalito ($6.50/$12 one way), 2. Take Muir Woods shuttle ($3 round trip; reserve seat in advance). Beats the $70+ tours! This trail was mainly in the shade but got some filtered sun. Very few muddy spots. Well maintained, wide packed trail for most of it. There is no summit (it hugs the contour line once you’ve reached max elevation) and there aren’t viewpoints. Consider the Dipsea trail if you want a peak at the ocean. Definitely nice to get away from the crowds.

Wide open views of the cliffs and sea. Very steep but worth the payoff. Lots of side paths to meander to vistas.

It took several hours, nice view! However, the weather is too dry, a lot of dust on the trail. Will suggest to try after little rain.

Arguable the most beautiful trail I’ve ever hiked. Period. If you are not afraid of heights, definitely try to climb on some of the rocks that can help you see the view better.

gorgeous trail and amazing falls but don't miss the turn off to the falls! there are no signs indicating Alamere Falls. there is a pile of rocks in the shape of an arrow at about mile 4 that indicates the trail that leads down to the falls. it is a clear trail but we missed it because it just looks like it would be a quick/unofficial offshoot. missing it added another 4 miles for us as we decided to do the lake loop and come back. the falls were gorgeous and very unique. black sand beach. most of the trail is relatively easy, no steep parts until you get to the falls and go down to the beach.
