Loved the amazing waterfall! Wear good hiking shoes. We had to cross the stream a few times over slippery rocks and our feet got a little wet, but we still loved every minute of it!

Great day out met plenty of good people on the way could not get to the top as the snow from the last saddle to the peak was icy so ice axe and crampons would be needed, will certainly go back to bag it either with the correct gear or in easier conditions

My friend and I made it to the Hollywood Sign. During our hike, we got lost several times since the Park has many trails that lead to another. It is useful to use the default map and pay attention to it especially when there is a fork. Don’t pay attention to my route since I am not taking the fastest route. My friend and I kept choosing the wrong way; we didn’t reference the map much.

My main complaint (hence the four stars) is the lack of trail signs, which makes it hard to go the right way. We started at the Park Service Center, which is not the fastest route to the sign.

Dogs are welcome on a leash. I have a 1.5 years old German Shepherd and my friend had a 8 to 9 years old chihuahua mix. The chihuahua did get tired and had to be carried for the most difficult part (climbing up rocks and walking on wash). There was some points where my dog wasn’t on the leash because it was a tripping hazard for me. Overall, they did well. On the other hand, I do not recommend this for young kids.

Bring water and snacks (important if you get lost; make sure to fuel up).

Happy hiking.

Nice walk. Mostly flat & paved. Very peaceful! Easy workout. Nice views from the dam. I saw a couple deer last time I was there ❤️

relaxing and fun trail.

Great trail! Awesome view at the top and many different areas with scenic views as you make your way up. Different routes can make this hike shorter or as long as you want. Good trail for beginners.

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.

Great trail for the family!!

Beautiful trail. First snow hike. Trekking poles are a must, if I didnt have them I would have probably slipped down the mountain. I got here earlier today at 8am and I was one of the first ones here, it was pretty empty. Keep in mind it's a weekday. It is pretty tough if you haven't hiked in a while, I contemplated giving up multiple times. The trail to the peak at some point was hidden in snow and I felt that it was best if I didnt continue, plus my crampons broke. I'll be sure to finish this trail in the summer.

This was my first hike at this location and hiking in the snow. Great workout...crampons and trekking poles helped. Completed in 9 hours. Since it was supposed to rain later that day it was super windy and began snowing on the way back down. Hiking in the snow was awesome and the scenery was beautiful. Can’t wait to do this one again in better weather conditions to be able to absorb more of the scenery.

My favorite trail because of all the trees and waterfalls.

hiked on 12/19/18

absolutely amazing. micro spikes were a must. hiking poles are extremely helpful, i don't summit without them!

started at 8:30. got to the top by 1. ate lunch for about an hour. got back down by 5. next time I will start an hour early because the sun had set by the time we got back to the parking lot.

this hike can be dangerous for those who don't come prepared. we ran into someone who slid 100 feet because they were in Nikes and no micro spikes. luckily they weren't alone. not sure what the current conditions are, i would call the ranger station a day in advance to make sure.

anyways, had a total blast doing this. i definitely recommend getting some miles in before doing this one because it is mighty strenuous. can't wait to train properly and do it again!

Hiked to the peak without micro-spikes, worst mistake ive ever made. Almost fell off a slope but thanks to someone near by helped me up, very dangerous without spikes at the moment.

best wire of entire ie!!...by far!

Beautiful path that offers variety of scenery! This one will become a regular hike!

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

12/28/18 — Whoa. The winds were wicked. Micro spikes needed from around 3.5 miles in until the peak. Snow was over the ankles in places near the top. Had the peak to myself.

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 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.

Hiked this trail on 12/27/18.

The first 3.6 miles from the trailhead to Ice House Saddle were mostly dry with scattered patches of snow and ice along the way. The next 2.5 miles from Ice House Saddle to Cucamonga Peak were almost completely covered with snow and ice...you will definitely want micro-spikes and trekking poles from this point to make your way to the top if hiking in snowy conditions. We did the hike in 9 hours (7am-4pm) taking our time and making several stops along the way, but we probably could have done it in 7 hours or less if we were hustling a bit more.

Overall, it’s a beautiful trail that can be considered moderate to challenging depending upon your experience and fit. There’s a tranquil creek that runs parallel to the trail for the first couple miles and once you climb higher you’ll be awarded with stunning views of the valley. It’s a well maintained trail from bottom to top. Do it, you won’t be disappointed!

Nice. Safety. A lots of people.

Nice walk, though the scenery is a tad monotonous. At the trail junctions, there are helpful little signs to help you get oriented.

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

Hiked to top. Lots of ice so wear spikes and bring poles!

Sweet place to relax next to the fall

Just did it today. Very peaceful.

Good hike. Was iced over before the saddle, so I decided to turn back & stay the night at Cedar Glen camp since it was later in the day. Had a great view from the top spot at the camp.
