Easy trail to follow. Was pretty slippery and muddy when we got down into the falls entrance. People were friendly. Trail was clean. Would do it again. Easy one for the dog too. :)

Very quick trail but the steepness makes up for it. Don’t go on a rainy day because it will get very muddy and you will ruin your shoes like I did. I would definitely want to go back on a non-rainy day

Nice bike ride with some good climbs at start

Very nice well-traveled trail. Feels like a walk in the countryside.

This year resolution is to walk an hour every day for this calendar year. I downloaded the All Trails App and since I drive for www.cheaperthanadui.net, I end up in different places, I can search for different trail spots. I researched this location and seem perfect for an hour walk. There's lots of trees and different paths to take. It's between a neighborhood and its a great walk. Lots of people doing the trail. I was able to only walk half the road but I think it was a nice walk. I highly recommend it if you want to have a quiet time.

Fairly inexperienced as a hiker, but this hike was a great way to spend a morning! The main trail was fairly challenging and there were lots of side options to try. Enjoyed it a lot!

Great trail for the family

I love this trail, biking or walking my dog.

Amazing views! My fiancé and I decided to hike here and then accidentally stumbled upon the wedding ceremony/reception area... wow. This is a beautiful place and the doggies loved it too. I was obsessed with seeing everyone on their horses too!

It is a good hike, just be careful while stepping on rocks. You could slip and sprain your ankle. Otherwise its not too difficult.

This trail is so much fun!! I love rock climbing so this was a very fun trail, the last mile or mile and a half are fairly challenging. There are even more options to climb once you reach the now dry water fall. There is quite a bit of graffiti but nothing that affected the beauty of the trail. Parking is free, the trail itself was fairly busy for a Saturday morning around 8 am. I will definitely be visiting this trail again soon!

Definitely wouldn’t call this a lesser known hike. Granted we went New Years Day, but starting at 8am on an exceptionally cold(for SoCal) and windy day, we were about the 10th car in the area. Passed probably 60 people on the way out and the parking was completely full.

The trail itself is actually only about a mile through a creek bed. The first 3ish miles are all on paved/hard packed road. Once in the creek the place really comes alive! As you progress up the boulders get larger and larger leading to some great fun climbing and hoping around. For those who wish to skip climbing, there is several paths around that hug the creek bed. The waterfall itself was dry, but a rope has been set up so you can climb up it a bit and explore the cavity the water has created. Once your done, scramble back down the creek hit the road and you are home free. Clocked 7.4 miles in 3.5 hrs leisurely.

Decent views, good fun scrambling, but LOTS of graffiti. Sad to see so much defacing in a reasonably secluded area, it was borderline distracting.

just enough walks and climbs... very scenic view and lots of things to see. connects to different trails....

Fun hike, with some beautiful views! You can even see Downtown Los Angeles on a clear day. Some steep hills so you get a workout, but it's not too long, so it's good for the whole family.

great hike! first half is a flat fire road, the second half is legitimately climbing through boulders all the way to the fall. no water at the fall, it’s completely dry, but i think it’s been dry for a while. the graffiti and lack of signage is why i gave it four stars but otherwise a great hike!

Loved it! Best hike I’ve been on this far but we got lost on the way back taking a short cut.. highly recommend staying on the trail lol

One of my favorite trails! It’s a really fun trail but lost of bouldering. Leads to two beautiful waterfalls... when there’s water. There’s hardly any shade from the parking to the actual trail head.

Found this to be more of a mountain biking trail, but very enjoyable the same. Thanks

great for kids. the actual nature path to the redwoods is probably less than a mile and a half, out and back. it's also mostly unpaved, so strollers and wheelchairs would be a challenge but any change in elevation is gradual so might be doable. there is a water fountain at the grove as well as a few benches.

this trail was awesome. had back surgery last month and i still made it to the fall. great workout.

nice easy trail, obvious trail so no issues there and decent views...

Great medium length fairly difficult-Moderate trail. Bring plenty of water. Almost all elevation gain on one half of hike. If you want to take the elevation on early, head counterclockwise at start.

I hike this all the time. Esp hike up the steep incline of Progressive which runs along side and through it, then walk down the road. It's not very pretty but the views are pretty good and it's great for cardiovascular health. I park on Elker when I hike all the way to the dopler orb.

Don’t let the hike into the waterfall fool you. (It’s dry at the moment) if you continue on once you reach the falls, there will be a steep incline to your right with a rope to help guide you to the top. If you are going with a group I would recommend to climb very cautiously and call your rocks as they head down. If you are bringing a dog, it’s do-able....responsible? It all depends on the owner. Haha just make sure to have a person down at the bottom to catch your dog incase they slip, unfortunately they don’t have thumbs like us to try and catch themselves. There is a beautiful photo op once you reach the top with a 8” foot cross being propped up by rocks. I would keep a look out for the bike trails since that will be your best route to go back down unless you want to bust your ass and have achy knees for the rest of the day and go down the same way you came up. Overall, we hiked for 5.5 hours and conquered 10 miles. You will be tired for the rest of the day. Guaranteed. And if you’re not, then you suck.

awesome views! a but challenging, but fun!

I did it with 7 coworkers and 5 dogs and enjoyed it.

Very fun trail… Boulder scrambling super fun unfortunately all the graffiti takes away a lot of the beauty but still worth the hike! A little bit of water in the creek bed but not at the falls!

Hiking with friends. A little bit of water along the way. I really enjoyed the hike. Good workout. A lot of rock climbing

I have hiked moderate trails before and thought this was a good trail to train on for more difficult hiked. The trail is a service road that is wide and well maintained. So, you walk on flat surface the whole way. There is no place to sit and rest along the way except a hillside to lean against. It is all up hill to Beek's and is consistent so you don't have to worry about drastic inclines. The views of the cities are spectacular and you can see the mountain tips from a whole new elevation. I will be using this trail to help me train for Mt. Baldy and Mt. San Jacinto.
