We couldn’t get to the parking lot because the area was blocked off, so we parked in the residential neighborhood 3 miles below the trailhead and hiked up. Sturtevant falls was beautiful! It’s only about 2 miles from the trailhead. Would be great to visit in spring after it’s rained a little bit. We combined this hike with a visit to Hermit Falls (which was another 1.5 miles or so from the trailhead). Total round trip was about 13 miles. Nice and shady hike at this time of year, but be careful when visiting the falls because the rocks are slippery.

Easy hike, mostly flat with little climbing involved. My Fitbit measured it to be 11.3 miles in total. You’ll definitely get wet when crossing the River a few times, so bring water shoes or a change of shoes/socks. Water was up to my ankles in early Jan. Took us about 5 hours in total.

Great views! It's also worth branching off to summit Mt. Lowe at the top.

Just about the perfect trail for out in this area of SoCal. Not too easy, but not too hard either. Beautiful switchbacks that take you away from traffic noise and once you get to the top, the views are fantastic! Fun to do on a sunny day or a cloudy one so you can watch the fog roll over the hills. For the most part, very safe, sturdy trail. A few fun, narrow stretches along the ridge line. And the best part: easy street parking at the trailhead!

My favorite trail because of all the trees and waterfalls.

Fantastic!

it was one heck of an adventure.
from beginning to end, crossing the stream and climbing over rocks. definitely not for beginners as I heard a lot of people complain lol and short of breath.

I am visiting from the east coast and decided to give this hike a try. Pretty solid overall and the many stream crossings kept it interesting. I completed it in just under 4 hours with a short break at the bridge for pics. It is difficult to follow the trail at times but rather easy to get back on point. The trail notes in AllTrails were very helpful.

My garmin had it at 10.24 miles.

One oddity is the number of homeless that seem to make the trail home. There appears to be a rather large camp close to the beginning and then I saw a couple more along the way, including upon my return own actually had a fire going. It just seems like there is lots that could go wrong and I am not sure why the rangers allow it.

4 stars for a great hike but the homeless and lack of trail markers keep it from a 5 for me.

Enjoy!

An easy trail for a quick hike. We visited on a Monday morning and there was little to no crowd.

Great hike. Completed in roughly 2 hours. Parking was super easy!

Closed due to government shutdown and water contamination. Come on Democrats, it's only pocket change. Love this trail

there is a massive hill u walk down that winds down to a area that leads down to where they have the cutest somewhat underground cabins. the trail is super easy. the areas with the trail with the cabins looks like something you would see out of a movie. it was a small trickle of a waterfall. technically not even a waterfall. it's like only a run of water down the side of the rockwall. prepare yourself for that hill back up. you will def be huffing and puffing..

It’s closed today- super bummed. Drove long way to get here. Been before and it’s awesome

Tried to go here yesterday late morning, gate was closed. We did she some people open, but then close it behind them so we were unsure if we could do the same. The walk from the bottom to the trail entrance would have been a little less than 3 miles, so we opted for another location :( was looking forward to check this place out.


I’ll keep looking on this page to see if for any updates if anyone has an idea why it was like that?? Thanks in advance !

The hike down and up were wonderful! Less trafficked compared to Sturtevant Falls. The one draw back was the amount of gravity found in the area.... Heavily graffitied especially at the boulders where the water falls!

The waterfall was worth visiting! The hike was short, so I managed to combine this and Hermit Falls hike in a day! I went on a Tuesday morning and there was a lot of people.

I love this place!!! Great workout and the views are amazing. Watch out for the bikes but for the most part we all have shared the trail without a problem.

Beautiful trail with ever changing landscape. Only 4 stars because all the homeless people camped out is a little unnerving for people hiking alone. While we had no issue, it was the first time I’d experienced a trail with people living on it.

Nice. Safety. A lots of people.

took my friend for her first hike and she was dying walking uphill. great time

I absolutely loved this hike!
Beware of the advice and notes on this trail however, it is probably inaccurate. It rained a little bit a week or two ago (we aren't in the throws of our biggest rains yet), and the river and trail has moved by sheer force of nature. It is evident that this trail changes, constantly.
This is good and bad, it's a new adventure; but it also means to be prepared for something new.
The river was full and we had to cross the river in places where in now hugs the cliffs, and the water was so deep that I think in only one place were we able to stay dry.... prepare to have wet socks at least when the rainy season starts.
The grade is easy, so it's a moderate hike despite the distance. There are a lot of yucca around and on the trail, so also prepare to get poked, a mild ouch.

First time on this trail. Moderate climb but a solid workout. Beautiful quiet hike. Great views , smooth fire trail.

this hike kicked our butt we measured it with Strava at 11.2 miles round trip had to cross the river six to eight times each Direction there's five or six spots that are pretty treacherous if you don't pay attention and the cactuses or yuccas are sprouting and we got stabbed about six times so be careful and you're going to get wet there's just no way around it cuz the water is up so in my opinion you're better off walking across the river then trying to balance yourself on the rocks overall a very challenging hike it took us six hours and 45 minutes but we took our time I don't recommend it for beginners but if you're in shape give it a go

Just did it today. Very peaceful.

You'll have to scramble across a few streams along the way, but there's a waterfall at the end!

on Kurama Trail [CLOSED]

Sadly, it’s closed right now (Dec 2018) because of downed trees after a typhoon... But I ended up taking the train from Kibune to Kurama, and the towns, shrines and the hot springs were all great!

Creds. AllTrails Pro - amazed people hike with out Pro version. Pro version bulletproof for not getting lost. Extremely easy to get lost on this trail without Pro version. Only $30 annually and no internet required. There is no internet service when you enter the Angeles National Forest. Yes trying to make a point.

10.4 mi, 1,699’ El Gain, 4:45 minutes travel time.

Adventure Pass required. $5 one time or $29 annually (the one I have)

Parked 8:am Saturday 8 Dec 2018. Gorgeous day with significant flowing river %85 of trail from rain 2 days ago. Expect to cross river 3 to 4 times getting wet up to knees (I’m 5’8).

Definitely doing this hike again!

Great day hike with my young Cub Scout

A nice hike, not too hard, yet challenging enough to give you a good cardio workout. I did this trail with my almost 7 year old son, and we started up the South side loop and went to the tower, chilled out, and decided not to take the loop and come back down the north side of the loop, only because my young son was tired, and I didn't want to push him. That part of the loop is next on our trail up together.

There is some shade, but not a lot. Parking is easy, there's plenty of room, and the hike is not crowded at all, and we went on a Sunday. Ya, there were people, but not too much. It is nice, you're dealing with nature, somewhat but if you're looking for an all out nature hike, this isn't it. If you want a nice cardio, and get a good workout, try this out. You'll like it.

Really fun hike! Has lots of great scenery and it's definitely a place I am going to go back to since we never got to finish it. I recommend for anyone to keep on checking your app/map to make sure you are going on the right path, it can get very confusing at times since a lot of the recent rain has washed away quiet a bit of the trail and the main big trail is blocked off from rock slides.
