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.

great trail, shaded and really pretty at the beginning too, wasn't very steep either, took 4 hours, was 97 degrees outside which I don't recommend doing it when it's this hot, closer to 9.5 miles. probably one of my favorite hikes that I've done so far!

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

Decent hike with what would be amazing views at the peak (was cloudy when I got to the top), but I arrived at 7:30 am, the marine layer may be better burned off if you start an hour later (8:30 am).

Someone mentioned it before, but definitely park in the turnout about 100 ft past the trail head (I was the first car there but by the time I got back there were about 3 behind me so I assume it’s safe to park there).

Trail runs about 9.7 miles (the distance mentioned in the main description is incorrect). The first 5 miles is more or less all uphill with the retuning..... you guessed it, all downhill.

Overall the hike took me about 4.5 hours (3.5L of water in 87F weather), while seeing a minimal amount of people (which is great!)

Feet hurt towards the end as it’s a narrow/rocky trail, but worth it especially you are down for a good work out (2,400 calories burned)

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

Nice loop hike with some good views and not a ton of people and plenty of parking (arrived at 8:30 am on a Sunday). I would definitely recommend turning left (clockwise) to start off the hike, even though I went right (counterclockwise). Going clockwise will give you more shade towards the end of the hike when it’s hotter. The path does have a lot of loose stones/rocks in some areas so make sure to watch your step.

Fantastic hike. The first mile or two you gain a lot of elevation, but after that it's not too bad. Very enjoyable and I'm already planning to hike this one again.

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.

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.

Clocked this at 9.6 miles. There are beautiful wildflowers all along the trail and plenty of shaded areas to rest and cool down. The ocean views are stunning. I’d recommend bringing 3 liters of water.

The trail is overgrown in many areas and we heard two rattle snakes but didn’t see them so be careful!

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.

Awesome trail. This time of year, the spring flowers were still all blooming at the lower altitude. The views from the top were spectacular in all directions. The trail is very rocky so sturdy shoes a must and per another review, some of these were more strenuous than moderate. Then again - I am 56 but my 22 year old sons thought it was easy.

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

l would recommend to go all the way to reyes peak for the amazing view.Take enough water and go very early in the morning it may take you almost a whole day round trip. It gets hard at times because of the uphill, but it is very walkable don't get discouraged. battery on my phone died very quickly up there.But it was worth it.

Beautiful especially when you get into the big trees with interspersed boulders. Hike is about 10 miles round trip when you go all the way to Pine Mountain Ridge road.

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

Snow capped mountains and crystal clear Pacific Ocean in the same breath! This is my new favorite hike in So Cal and I’ll be going back!

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

Parking limited. Crowded in some spots. Crossing at little creeks along the way. Nice under 5 hike in and out but can get crowded.

Packed with kids due to the easy pace of the hike but a nice payoff at the falls.

Fun quick hike with climbing

Awesome trail! Great photography possibilities for Los Angeles and the Channel Islands.
