No waterfall and currently there is a foul smell where the waterfall is located. I suggest coming back after it rains, usually this is a nice hike.

Water fall is empty at times but a great short trail.

Easy hike and great for kids. Lots of colorful dragonflies this time of year.

Nice easy walk along the beach! a lot of cyclers, so watch out for them. Lovely to walk during hot summer days.

Easy hike through nice houses... Disappointed waterfall but then again it's so cal so was expected

This is a great trail if you like some challenge. It is very narrow at points. Lots of nature, mostly shaded.

Did this one starting from the Romero Canyon trailhead a few days ago since I couldn’t find the specific Buena vista trailhead and worked backwards. It was quite the workout! It was beautiful and serene, only saw one person the entire time. Unfortunately, the area where the catway trail meets the buena vista trail is absolutely covered in poison oak and I am pretty susceptible so I just turned around. Luckily I still got to do the majority of it though! Would try again maybe in another season.

This is good for a quick “clear your mind” hike. Solid views and a nice forested portion. Not a tough workout but you’ll break a sweat. Fairly busy, with homes in view for most of the trail. Lots of detours so using the AllTrails GPS is very helpful!

Nice hike. Veryeasy and great views, there's the MASH area where the TV show was filmed..

Really nicely groomed trail for the most part; shady in lots of spots too which was lovely. A couple of tiny stream crossings, and not at all crowded. No hassles with parking and the All Trails map worked perfectly. We ended up going almost 6 miles.

This place was beautiful, even though when you get there they have a bomb of trials and some don’t even continue it was beautiful. Very simple for beginners the views of the pond are beautiful, fun to be adventurous and seeing what you find. Once you hit the main trail it’s a good work out.

It was a beautiful hike with lots of trees and nature, but there was not much water. We were able to see a little bit of the falls, but it was obvious that the water was going down. So if you want to see the falls, go sooner than later! Still beautiful, for what it is, even though it smells like sulfur.

Nice trail. I was happy I could take my dog. There are a lot of forks in the road so the map on this app is needed.

Havent done the whole trail, although the part I did, seemed fairly easy.

I love the pond which includes koi, fish and geese!

A nice place to take a lesson experienced friend or family member :)

Really pretty hike! Dog friendly and the waterfall is a great spot to sit before heading back.

Great, easy hike. Dog-friendly and lots of shaded areas.

Family friendly hike. There was resident's honking at everyone to move, there was plenty of horse poop, and the waterfall was dry like trickles falling, and it smelled horrible. when you get to waterfall becarefull while I was there all the loose rocks had 8 hikers fall.

Easy trail. It was good my boyfriend has injury so we are trying to take it easy.

Loved this hike! My 5 year hiked the whole way. The “weeping wall” or falls is really beautiful. I would definitely do this hike again.

I liked this hike cuz it was easy :)

Love love love this trail

What can you say. It's Huntington Beach. Paved surface that is facing the shore of the Pacific. Highly travelled with beach cruisers, roller blades, skate boards, joggers, and those just out for a leisure stroll. If not for the beach I'd give the trail a 3 star, but I just love beach view so it definitely warrants the higher review . Relatively flat with a couple small inclines so over all an easy trail. Great for an evening stroll if you're not looking for a lot of privacy or seclusion.

Not that too tough of a hike. Loved the shade and the destination was beautiful.

Great workout! Very limited parking and it fills up fast!

first time really like it

Easy hike , good for kids and nice waterfall at the end. Can climb the hill next to falls if you are up to it. Be careful of loose rocks.

Always a really fun hike although the waterfall is normally pretty dry

Super amazing hike for the little ones.. talk about exploration and not having to worry about them falling off an edge.. this hike was meant for the little ones with it being 95% flat grounds, having a cool climbing tree by the lake full of koi fish and turtles; accompanied by some ducks and a slightly larger lake with cool swamp growth to look at. Oh not to mention your surrounded by the lush green hills in my favorite place in la.
Fun fact: the Andy Griffith show was filmed here ;)

Neat little hike, with the chance for some decent rock climbing if you’re up for it. The falls were a little underwhelming (dry).
