This hike was perfect for my family. The views are amazing and start almost immediately. Parking is limited and fencing is thin barbwire which was fine for everyone except my 3 year old.

Nice trail for mountain biking and hiking in the summer. Shady, but watch for snakes. Best route is to go toward Newbury Park from PCH. Dogs not allowed.

I couldn’t find anywhere about the condition of this hike after the fire. So I went and checked it out. Same easy access to it gate is open and no one stopped us from going in and also no posted “area closed” signs. For the most part the trail along the river bed was untouched by the fire, lots of mud and rock slides Have happened though and saw a few times rocks come tumbling down while we were up there. The water is dingy and cold so we didn’t go in. The trail up the hill away from the river was also slightly washed out by mud slides and lots of fire damage that way, cool sight to see plus right now there is new green growth coming through the black and ash. I recommend it. Wear boots.

This is great for a quick hike/trail run. Especially if you take the longer trail.

Just Beautiful!!

Great hike. Always busy with friendly people and dogs.

My husband and I bike have always loved biking through here, we now take our son in a single bike trailer and it’s great! The picnic area in the beginning is gone now unfortunately, but there is another bench much farther in off the main trail

Very sad to hear that this trail has been destroyed by the Thomas fire. This was one of the best hikes I've ever found. I hope that it will be restored within my lifetime so I can go hike this majestic trail again...

Great hike and the views are incredible. Definitely check the wind conditions before you drive out here. The wind was very strong while we hiked, which was okay for us adults but would have been too strong for kids.

views are spectacular

Very crowded on a Sunday morning, which was to be expected for such a nice trail that wasn’t too difficult and you are rewarded with the waterfall at the bottom!

Rather easy , even for an active senior..

Started this on the opposite end at the Sycamore Canyon trailhead off the PCH. Beautiful canyon run on a fire access road. However a few miles in the dirt road turns to asphalt for the rest of the trail (or if you’re going along the route described it’d start asphalt then switch to dirt.

Fun trail, but heavily trafficked.

Great local trail. Well traveled and safe. I think it’s still closed due to Thomas fire damage.

Drove all the way out there from West LA to find out the park was closed due to the fires. It was such a sad vision and my heart goes out to those that live around there, but it would’ve been nice for All Trails to update/mention which trails are closed on their app. The low rating is for All Trails not the actual trail. Love and light to the county of Ventura.

Great hike, trail is well marked and we'll maintained; there is also a water fountain for drinking water near a shaded area. However, very crowded at times and you cant jump in the water due to contamination. Beware of rattle snakes. on the plus side there are a few tables for lunch near the falls.

Big Sycamore Canyon: completed a 15.2 mile hike at 951ft, along with the Rancho Sierra Vista, Fireline Trail, and Guadalasco Trail, etc. Easy inclines: a good day hike for beginners. Great for building endurance. Nice and cool weather, at 74 degrees, in January 2018. Be mindful of mt. bikers, please. No dogs. A power bar(s) & 1.5L of water would be fine.

Nice regional hiking park with modestly improved trails and some educational facilities. Several access roads allow nearly direct insertion to several points in park. Sewage treatment plant is located about 3/4 mile downstream of Paradise Falls. A lot of elevation change so I would rate this one as moderate. Be in good health when attempting!

Great trail Santa Rose to T.O n back

Great hike beautiful water falls, we did 6 miles from Santa Roses to T.O, and back very enjoyable a must hike

This trail is open, as are the majority of trails in the area

Went last Saturday, with my wife,our 4, 8 and 21 year olds and our friends who had a 9 year old. We had a great time did the loop and came back up Indian Wells trail. The kids did great with the inclines. Beautiful waterfall and not too muddy which was a plus with the kids. Loved all the ducks down in the creek beds. It was a little crowded but I guess that is a good thing see people out hiking and enjoying nature!

Short, easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end. Weekends get pretty busy so if you want to get there and be alone and not have a million kids screaming, get there bright and early!

Cute hike to a cute waterfall.

Great hike. Just remember that what goes down must come up. Be sure to read the signs.

They only just lifted the restrictions in the non burn areas of the Los Padres, it's going to be a good time before they start allowing people back into the burned trails. Press release announced the fire was officially 100% contained, but all burn areas are still closed as they attempt to clean up. You can always call your local forest service office to inquire about trail closures prior to setting out.
