Increíble el dolor de piernas que causa! Muy recomendable. Llevar suficiente agua y repelente de mosquitos. En la cima hay un café por si a caso necesitan comer o tomar algo. La recorrí el 23 de septiembre y no hubo mucha gente, se debe de comprar el gafete para parking (5 usd).

I hiked on 9/22/18. started at parking lot at 0645, made it to the summit at 1215( yeah, I'll never break any speed records) at my age just finishing is a big deal.
Trail is beautiful, mostly in shade through forest, just gorgeous. last few miles to the summit are a bit rough. but of the 4 six pack of peaks that I have done this year. the is easily the most beautiful.
if you go on the weekends, the Cosmic Cafe is open at the summit. Had a killer hot dog, coke and cookie all for 10 bucks. a life saver. got back down to car at 515. so a full day hiking. Fyi, all trails has it as 11 miles, the signage on the trail show it round trip at 14. both my pedometers showed it 18. So go figure. Anyway a great day and an awesome hike. places to camp along the way also.

Just hiked this today. Started a little late and didn't have enough time to get to the end, but really enjoyed the hike. My friend and I started from the end...It's at Vogel Flats on Big Tujunga Rd. I don't really see how this is any different than many hikes in Angeles NF as far as trail conditions. It is a single track trail, but I had absolutely zero problems following the trail. It is slightly "overgrown", but very much passable with no problems. There are sandy areas where the trail has slightly slid downhill, but I never felt like it was dangerous. The few trees I saw that were down were easily passed by. I'm 5' and it was not an issue getting over them. It was shady and beautiful. I hiked up about 3 miles from the bottom and had no issues. It does suck at the bottom near all the river crossings how disrespectful the people are with their trash and bathroom trash. I'm so looking forward to completing the hike from bottom to top. I wouldn't let any of the reviews prevent you from doing this hike. I would suggest doing it from the bottom up instead of upside down. If you're an experienced hiker these are non-issues. =)

Hiked this with a friend at 5am. The basic info you need to be aware of at this point is that this trail is pretty difficult to follow after about 1.5/2 miles. We followed along with the trail on the app, but were unable to follow a trail to the end of the hike. We made it most of the way, but with about 1/4 mile left, right before what seems to be largest of the water crossings, the trail was gone. We attempted to get across near the general area that the trail was supposed to lead through, but no dice. Very overgrown in areas, and the trail is basically washed out in a couple of very sketchy spots. I think this trail needs to be re-blazed by some people who are more familiar with what the trail once was. Bring a lot of water - there is a decent amount of rocky ascent, but most of it is shaded. Still a good workout. There wasn't much trash, as a lot of the previous reviews have mentioned there being. Someone must have done a cleanup fairly recently. Also, we randomly found a geocache off-trail after about 1.5 miles :)

I am not going to include more detail, as I don't recommend this trail in its current state. Definitely not for beginners. Please bring a compass/GPS if you choose to attempt to complete the hike.

Nice mellow hike. second half is shaded. Obviously, not too much water but it's worth seeing the end.

Nice easy hike. Way too many people on the weekends. Unfortunately the last time I went there was some kind of company family event. There seemed to be a hundred ppl crowding the waterfall. Kids running and yelling everywhere. Not the peaceful experience i was looking for.

like the rock canyons. nice hike

Great afternoon ,great view.

I love this trail, but the amount of people hanging out here just waiting to spot a celebrity is insane. The foot traffic is nearly as terrible as LA traffic. The upside? So many doggos running free just waiting to be petted! It’s definitely a good hike if you wanna get a good sweat going though.

Goes through a very active bee hive!! So maybe not the best time to use this trail right now. Also, on the way out it’s basically entirely downhill after the initial ascent

Beautiful cliff views

I ran into Joe Rogan strangling a bear with his bear-hands and when I saw this the Bear noticed me and that made Joe turn to me and the bear Ran off. Joe then nonchalantly turns to me and says, "Sup Dude." then just jogs off into the wilderness. I still can't believe what I saw but this was a great and challenging trail.

Love this trail and will be back

love it great for kids too

Easy and nice. Always feel safe here even at night.

So beautiful and so worth it! It’s a very easy hike and there is a baby waterfall at the end too (Sep, 2018) Perfect to dip your feet in, take pictures and just relax. I bring my 9lbs pup with me and she loves playing in the water.

This trail was amazing. I luckily got parking right at the bottom of the hill. They don’t allow parking on a Tuesday from 12pm-??? Because of street sweeping, luckily I was able to get there before 12 and snag a spot.

The trail I hiked it was paved for the most part which was cool and easy to walk. It did have great inclines but I guess because I’m used to hiking steeper inclines it was easy. The views are panoramic from any area and it’s absolutely spectacular.

This trail will definitely make you want to get fit... there are so many beautiful bodies (LOL) guys and girls. Bodies where you see, and you’re just like “damn... I want to be that”.

The trail has no bathrooms so go either in your car in a bottle or definitely make a pit stop somewhere else before you head up there.

I will definitely be back! I can’t wait to try out the other trails this place has to offer!

Came here for the first time a few months ago and really enjoyed the walk under the bridges and was very simple. Pretty much no incline so it was perfect to do some running. Will continue to come back here!

Great afternoon hike!

Enjoyed a beautiful day to take this trail. Have come here before back when the stream was pretty dry last summer 2017. Really enjoyed coming back, listening to the water run, and enjoying that waterfall was amazing!!

Even though the falls don't flow as much, it's still a great hike.

Balade sympa qui parvient jusqu'au pied de la mythique inscription. Par une journée de grosse chaleur, nous avons un peu souffert pour monter (bon, on a commencé à marcher à 10h du matin, notre avion s'était posé la veille à 23h... ça peut expliquer un peu de fatigue). Les rangers avaient mis à disposition des fûts d'eau fraîche à mi-parcours. Le trail lui même n'est pas forcément très intéressant mais offre des vues sympa sur LA.

I hiked this very beautiful trail a few years ago, it was a very nice challenge. Bring lots of water if it's warm, there is a section that has no shade.

昨天走upper Winter creek不过瘾,今天一大早5点半开始这条。一路树荫,凉爽,可惜没有什么水,带的4升水,狗2升,自己2升,9点到天文台重新补水。下山Wilson 到sturtevant falls 这一段比较陡,伤膝盖,后悔早上匆忙没带手杖。总体感觉不错!推荐。

Amazing views of L.A

Great hike with a good vibe. Lots of people and lots of dogs. Trail is well marked. Snacks and water were for sale at entrance for reasonable price.
