Great trail. went hiking with all my friends, once you get to the waterfall it's super cool and breezy.
the only problem with it is how sunny it is and how there is no shade going up it.

But all and all would do again.

I have been here a few times now and really enjoy scenery. When the creek is full, it’s absolutely stunning and I love to walk through it post hike! An amazing cool down. The waterfall is beautiful and not too difficult to get to. I highly recommend!

Definitely more of a moderate hike than easy, especially in the heat. It's also uphill the whole way to the small falls. We'll be going back but in the fall/spring.

It has been said that it changed its beauty due to the trash and graffiti. But we still saw how amazing it was getting there. We did a short video of our trip. https://bit.ly/2MSX59I

A nice drive, with an emphasis on “drive”.

If you’re looking for a nice drive with okay scenery then look no further. On the contrary, if you’re hoping to off-road, there are offshoots (one of which is Holy Jim). Other than that, this is definitely an easy to moderate trail.

easy hike, not too many people were there which made it nicer.

Nice easy trail to follow.....TRAIL closed when you reach the turn to go to the dripping cave due to regrowth from fire. So unable to finish the last .4 miles. Tons of rabbits and a nice cool creek to splash your face if you get hot

A beautiful water fall.

Terrible. The element nowadays are pot smokers playing obnoxious music through cheap portable speakers. A lot of graffiti. Avoid the crowds and go early morning

Park in the adjacent neighborhood with ease. Hike is fairly strenuous in the beginning but you're quickly rewarded with fantastic 360 degree views of OC. I only encountered 1 person the whole time, which was nice. On the loop back, the trail takes you on the road, but I cut back in to go back the same way I came in, and was much better to avoid the road. Took around 1.5 hours with a couple of little stops. Cool little hike

Nice trail with views of lake and that ends up in town. Start at Snow Summit

Lots of rocks, would recommend hiking shoes and water shoes for when you get to falls. It’s really nice though, I’m for sure going back.

The beginning of the trail to the waterfall is easy. If you decide to continue up the trail to the left you’re at an incline until you reach the Deer Valley Loop. That’s another mile-ish loop and then you go back down the way you came.
There isn’t much shade on the trail, only when you reach the abandoned structures along the way.
It’s really woodsy in some areas with streams, and there are lots of birds & lizards. Overall very beautiful, and quiet on the harder trail.

A little harder than moderate at some of the road diversions. Warm and sunny! Loved it. You can see the ocean from some spots.

Hike showcased great views of Anaheim and Irvine. The red soil mixed with the rocks created a beautiful dessert atmosphere.

We did this hike in February 2018. Nice out and back trail. It was my first hike after about four months of being a couch potato and it took us about four hours. Great view of the Antelope Valley and the rocks, although I'm still not sure which rock formations was the devil's chair.

The walk up can be a little difficult because of the incline and elevation but it’s worth it once you get up there and see the waterfall.

Beautiful day for a hike to the falls. So disheartened to see the graffiti along the way. I support art and expression, but please don't use Mother Nature as your canvas.

Great walk, beautiful views with a refreshing stop at the falls. The only problem is people trashing the place and not taking care of the mess they leave behind.

This trail’s parking needs a recreation pass

Great hike!! The ruins are quite interesting. Nice that they have a write-up on the home that used to be, complete with pictures. The falls were very nice, even though a bit light, as there has been no rain lately.

We wanted to take the entire loop, so we made the decision to follow other hikers’ advice and start out on the Rising Sun Trail. Taking this way gets the steep incline portion out of the way in the first leg of the hike, which really helped to make the rest more enjoyable.

At first we thought the falls were closed, because of an early sign saying “area closed”, but this is misleading. There is another way to the falls just behind the ruins, as this was essentially their back yard.

The way back alternated on a paved road and hopping over the tiny stream, and it was really nice...easy.

This is a nice little 2 hour hike. There is some plant diversity but I only saw two birds. The stream has a few main waterfalls, about 5-15 feet each, and once you reach the top there is great shade under the trees. There is some graffiti on the rocks and I picked up five or so pieces of trash, but was definitely a fun beginner hike with friends!

Nice trail! Went uphill but not too steep. Was a good workout and no one was on the trail. We arrived at 7 and were done by 9:15! Nice views of Santa Clarita valley. I suggest bringing bug spray!

Loved it so much nature to see and explore and not a hard hike at all.

Great walk up to a great view over the city! FYI, the water fall isn't much of a water fall. there's also no real place to dip in the water. if you live near here, i recommend it, but it's not worth a long drive.

First time hiking this trail. Our 6 year old had no problem keeping up and led the way most of the hike. Great scenery.

Good for beginners! Really nice place!

Excellent place to relax and enjoy after a long day of work. Many wild animals to see at dawn or dusk. Trails go uphill majority of the way with Spectacular Scenery once you reach the top.

Very calm, not packed in the morning, parking is easy to find if you go early. The scenery is amazing .
