Hikes to Do Map

Well worth the hike. I enjoyed the adventure to the devil’s chair more than the chair itself though. Lots of amazing scenery to take in

very good hike. stars easy but if doing the whole loop it will be challenging...cool pictures spots n ocean view

What a great trail! Great views!

Great trail! Today was perfect with the overcast and the dogs even enjoyed themselves. ☺️

I met the coolest people on this hike!

Old dilapidated mansions, newts, swimming holes and rock climbing.

I remember this place as a kid. I used to go camping with my parents at Mountain Lakes which is just up the road a little further. We would meet tons of people at Mt. Lakes all around our age. This was back in the 80's (I was like 8-10) and I guess one of the others (teenagers) knew about this place. So we all went and it was amazing. We walked the whole way so it was a long walk but well worth it. I have seen waterfalls in Hawaii so obviously this doesn't come close to those, but to see one in the middle of that area was amazing. It was like a secret place then and there wasn't really any graffiti or things like that. There was a path, kind of, we climbed up and around to get higher up too.

We thoroughly enjoyed this waterfall, minus the tagging on all the rocks of course. Today was beautiful. There were giant clouds bringing in some light sprinkles, and the waterfall had a steady, strong flow. I'm personally a fan of climbing over rocks, so that plus the waterfall is why I rated this a 5. In all, we saw only 4 other people doing this hike, so I enjoyed the opportunity of sharing nature with just my boyfriend. I definitely plan to visit this hike again!

Beautiful scenery and a great easy hike. We truly enjoyed.

great trail to frequent.
street parking.
some parts are burned and rebounding.
starting to green out for spring already as well in some parts.

Good strenuous hike the first 2miles then you walk along the crest of the mountain. if time alotted, would have kept going but had an appt to keep. Will have to go back.

BOO!! It's Monday morning 8am and the gate is closed!! B.S.

Very beautiful scenery! I went on a side trail that took me right to the path for the falls. The path straight up to the falls was kind of difficult due to big rocks along the trail. I suggest getting hiking boots; I slipped a few times. Might also be a bit harder for those that don't hike often but it's manageable. Will definitely be returning in the near future.

This trail is perfect for all skill levels. We just wanted a more leisurely hike and this was perfect. It Has small “rolling hills” that would make it perfect for trail running too.

Easy Hike. Fire-roads the Thank entire trail (paved and unpacked). Beautiful views!

Very rocky. Not dirty. Waterfall area crowded. For what should be an easy trail it’s quite rocky.

Definitely not the easiest for a first time hiker but so worth it!

Big parking lot. 95% of the hike to the falls is uphill. Very little shade. Waterfall area is pretty. Wear good shoes because it is a very rocky path.

Great waterfall! There was ice down the side adding to the beauty. Trail is hard to determine, but there was enough traffic to figure it out. Have to do a lot of boulder walking so that makes it moderate, but it is a very short hike. Other than the boulders it was not too bad for a lady with two knee replacements!

We have gone here twice and it has been ok. We are in no rush to return. We have had no trouble finding parking on Hidden Canyon & E. Overlook Terrace. Both times we have taken the trail that heads to the NE and RT is about 3.7 miles. As you enter the trail head there are options to go south and we will need to check that out next time. There aren't amazing views or a cool destination to see at the end of this trail. The trail loops around and it is pretty close to homes at part. It is a decent option since it is not very far away. On one of our visits we came across a snake and a large tarantula just chilling on the trail.

Best Waterfall ive seen. I hiked to the top of the water fall, little dangerous but good experience. i liked going inside the bear caves and enjoyed the cold breeze and the rocks

Awesome near dusk. Lots of deer and great for all ages of our kiddos .

it's a work-out with a great view.

1) first part of the hike you have to cross a creek. You will get wet. *there is a bridge that is on "private property" that we used so we wouldn't get wet
2) 1/2 of the hike is very very rocky! Wear good shoes.
3) graffiti is everywhere though I don't mind seeing the art
4) must purchase a parking pass from the Ranger station for $5 (or AMPM from other reviews)
5) very windy today and there were some rocks that fell from the mountain so don't walk too close (in the rocky area)
6) over all this was a great hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end. There were enough people around to ask "which way to the waterfall?"

Nice hike and great for kids ... last stretch was a good work out and wish the waterfall had more water flowing down. Get there early to get parking or you may get blocked in like i saw today for some folks. Canyon was nice and cooled towards the middle but get great views and sun once on the ridge.

good safe parking area. easy wide trail (really rocky... and bring a hat, no shade untill the end). great area at the end to enjoy in the river. my whole family loved it.

Really beautiful views and a fairly easy trail for the most part. The first mile there and the first mile back are the toughest. The first mile there is a steady incline and then the first mile back has some very steep portions as well. The trek through the forest is beautiful and the final views of all the crazy rock patterns and formations are worth the journey.

My small terrier loved the hike, and only needed a few short water breaks. I needed a few breaks on the way up the aforementioned inclines, but just going slow and steady seemed to do the trick most of the time. Took us about 4 hrs to go out and back.

Easy to miss! Keep left! Don't go right! Spent most my time going up the stream on the right and ended up too far from where it was. If you spent more than 20 mins to get there then you probably went the wrong way. Look for a sign covered with graffiti. And yes, there is only one parking space and you need the day pass from the ranger station.
