My Hikes Map

Nice mellow hike. second half is shaded. Obviously, not too much water but it's worth seeing the end.

Great hike! I loved the views. The creek running by portions of the trail is beautiful and refreshing. It was wonderful to see so many out enjoying nature!

Because it’s close to home I do this hike frequently. There are a few ways to make the hike around 4-5 miles to make it more of a workout. It’s a pretty hike with easy footing.


Nice easy hike. Way too many people on the weekends. Unfortunately the last time I went there was some kind of company family event. There seemed to be a hundred ppl crowding the waterfall. Kids running and yelling everywhere. Not the peaceful experience i was looking for.

Great afternoon ,great view.

Love it all tho had to use my phone as Trails are not clearly marked

this hike is closed until further notice. as of July 2018

Hiked this trail last week, and I don’t believe we did all 6 miles since some parts ( near 57fwy) was closed off for construction. We entered by the street near benches. Unique trail since you do have to cross little creeks WARNING: you could slip and get your feet wet! Be careful when crossing as there areas where there’s not enough rocks. As you get closer to the freeway the uphill begins. I enjoyed it, outside getting my socks and shoes wet. Love the shade and overall views

Nice Easy ride!!

love it great for kids too

So beautiful and so worth it! It’s a very easy hike and there is a baby waterfall at the end too (Sep, 2018) Perfect to dip your feet in, take pictures and just relax. I bring my 9lbs pup with me and she loves playing in the water.

Love this place!

***SIGNS STATED TRAIL WILL BE CLOSED FROM 8/24-10/1...****Entered from San Dimas Ave at the trail head by the 57.. I enjoy this hike every time I come. Sunny upon entering through trailhead but super shady within. Love how there is still water flow ( been doing waterfall hikes in Pasadena lately and they’ve been pretty dry). Not heavily trafficked. Have to admit passing the oak loop the trail seemed a lil more creepy and less trail friendly. Shrubs start overpowering your trail after about 3 miles in right about the end of it. Do recommend women to have pepper spray because I felt a lil scared myself after coming across some random creepy guy. Keep in mind if bringing children I would find a parking in between the hike maybe on puente. Not sure what street has access but the hike back up to the San Dimas entrance is a good inclined one so be ready;) 6 miles well worth the stroll.

It's a lovely Shady Trail I wish that I brought another pair of shoes though because there's a creek that runs through it and you will get your feet wet there's no way around it it's a lot harder then it looks I would think that it's more moderate than easy I usually start from the middle or parking is at which is very hard to find had to zoom out map just to find the special parking spot because the parking on Via Verde is a nightmare and very dangerous would recommend this Trail I enjoy the nice shade and starting from the middle parking lot where there's a dirt road and picnic tables

I hike this trail all the time you can do as little as a few miles or do 11miles. Its similar to Griffith but on a smaller scale, but an equal workout.

Enjoyed a beautiful day to take this trail. Have come here before back when the stream was pretty dry last summer 2017. Really enjoyed coming back, listening to the water run, and enjoying that waterfall was amazing!!

Even though the falls don't flow as much, it's still a great hike.

There are two ways to walk around. One is an easy walk on wide trails and roads. The other spilts off and follows a single track that stays near to the lake. There are a few tricky footing spots but it’s still easy. This way is horrible for ticks! Check yourself and your dogs if you go this route. I also agree it’s not worth traveling for but it’s a good place for locals to walk their dogs.

California has been going through a drought and this summer has been one of the hottest summers I’ve ever experienced. The waterfall has lost its heavy and pleasant flow.

Amazing trail.
Tried it with the kids, and they loved it.

Relatively easy trail. The most difficult part of the trail is the entrance side near the 57 fwy but the difficulty is only for a short while. Most of the hike was easy. There are several creek crossings and beautiful trees for the sun to shine through. Kids could get tired just because of the distance but difficulty level is easy

This trail is a nice and easy hike that's perfect for the family and doggies. There's tons of shade provided by the oaks and alders. Unfortunately, there was some graffiti on parts of the trail, but if you can look past that, you'll still find beauty around you. The elevation gain/loss is barely noticeable since it's only 416 feet. This should make the hike pleasant. The keen hiker will note that there are several species of plants that don't belong in the creek. I found bamboo and Mexican Fan Palms growing near the creek which normally don't grow there. There's also lot's of poison oak growing along the creek bed so great care must be taken when going near the creek. Overall, it was a nice hike and I would do it again.
