If you park all the way down the hill at the campsite, then walk through the site, the sign from the campsite says that the falls are only 0.5 miles away, making the whole trip from your car and to the falls and back a flat, short, hike of just a little over 1 mile. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and only ran into a few other hikers as well as had the falls to ourselves. I liked how there were pamphlets on the local birds available to take from the info board in the parking lot. We saw the last of the fall color, some squirrels, and beautiful, clear, water since it had rained a week prior. If you’d like a short hike and are okay with crossing some streams, this little hike is very beautiful and time well spent.

I just hiked this on 9th December 2018. Lots of spaces in the lot, I arrived at 6:15 am. Beautiful hike! Definitely harder in knee deep snow past the saddle. Micro spikes and trekking poles were very helpful as some parts were ice. Beautiful view! It took about 4.5 hours up! Check out my insta pics of it! ig: @yvonne_rebecca

a lot of people

Great hike. Lots of snow. Make sure you at least have micro spikes as the snow turns into ice. We did not come down the DBB as few hikers warned us about it. We came down thru the ice house the same way we went up.

Awesome hike. If you go with snow on the ground make sure to wear spikes. The switch backs up to the saddle can get slippery.

Great easy trail, very populated during weekends.

Very nice hike, as mapped here taking the chapman trail back it is 9 miles though. I enjoyed the chapman trail, hiking back along the wall of the canyon provides nice views.

GOOD view! Warning: There is snow very, very early into the trail; trekking poles or a good set of spikes for traction. I did not prepare for the snow and went in tights and a t-shirt. There wasn't a lot of people; I arrived at 7:00 am and the parking lot was still half empty. Took almost 5 hours to complete the entire thing.

Highly recommend for beginners who have a few easy mountains under their belt.

Really nice, small, waterfall for very little effort. The hike up through the creek is great. You weave to either side of the flowing creek. The creek has a nice shallow flow, with crystal clear water. You're in the shade almost the entire time. Would def come back during the summer.

This hike can probably be accessed from Milliard Camp parking lot a bit further down the road, since the GPX route takes you right through Milliard Camp anyway. This might be better idea for some, as the section between the marked parking area and Milliard Camp is single track and is accessed by a LOT of mountain bikers. We were there early Sat morning and prob had about 20+ bikers passed us.

nice little fun trail.

What a hike!! Got to the trail at 6:30 on Sat Dec 1st, parking lot less then a 1/4 full... No snow the first 1/4 way up, after that the trail is full of ice and snow, sometimes as much as a couple feet deep as your getting closer to the top... My $30 micro spikes made a huge difference. I saw people turn around, but I also saw people make it just wearing hiking shoes... Summer is gone, it’s winter up there now, and only going to get more snow and colder, be prepared.. Bring your layers, head gear, hiking poles, gloves, a good pair of winter hiking boots, and definitely your spikes.. Check the weather before you go, it can change quickly and turn a great day into a dangerous one.. Plan extra
Time, the snow and ice will slow you down, always bring a light in case it takes you longer and starts
To get dark... It took me 9 hours to complete, I am an older guy but in shape, I’m sure you youngsters can do it faster, just bring your winter gear to be prepared.. Overall what a great day, the snow, the clean air, doesn’t get much better...

I hiked this trail shortly after the first snowfall and it was a killer workout. If you will be hiking through the snow be sure to take appropriate gear.

The views along the trail are gorgeous.

Glad to mark this 1 of the list but won't do again, mostly because of the crowds. Too many loud kids, music blasters & ill-prepared walkers. The lower parking lot was open on 11/25/18. From here it's no more than 1.25 miles round trip. From the upper lot & road parking there is a lot of steep road walking that wouldn't be worth the effort.

Did this hike to Cucamonga Peak 2-weekends in a row. The first time 11/18. Started at 8am. Lots of people en route to the saddle. Reached the saddle at 10am. And the peak was reached at 1230pm. On the way down the sunset beat us and we walked the last mile in darkness. Reached the car at 5:30pm. Yesterday 11/24. Larger group, 4adults/3middle schoolers and a slower pace. Started at 8am. Lots of people headed up the icehouse canyon. Reached the saddle at 11am. Had some hot chocolate (it was cold) started towards cucamonga peak around 12. Slowly but surely (take your time, and focus on getting there, not how much longer to get there) reached the peak around 3:45pm. Ate some cup-o-noodles (it was really cold and windy, the warm noodles hit the spot) gradually descended at 4:45 but sunset came by too fast and we literally hiked down the peak in darkness. We had headlamps and flashlights. Again, the descent can take a toll on your legs, good leg condition because the hike up to the peak at the last quarter will challenge your legs, and on the way down the last 2miles are full of rocks so by this point your legs will feel wobbly and weak. Although proper hiking boots will make a huge difference in this hike. Your feet will thank you and so will your knees and ankles. We made it to the car at 9:40pm. Hahahah. I loved it. Worth it. Feel the burn. And get some rest. On to the next.

Great hike as always. No wind, no ice as of today however the temp can be in mid 30s when you start around 6-7am. Warmer at the top!

Amazing day for this peak! A bighorn sheep ran up the mountain by the saddle and cruised on the trail in front of me for a few minutes. wind was almost non existent at the peak from 10-11am. 12 miles, 6 hours. Definitely one of my new favorites.

I absolutely loved this trail! Not only was the weather perfect, so was the scenery, journey, and people I met along the trail. There wasn’t as many people on the trail as I thought there would be, but I can’t complain!!!

Great scenic trail. All I could ask for in a day hike around this area. A bit crowded on the weekend but ok.

Its really rocky for the first half the way up then the trail turns into a normal dirt trail. Steep steady climb. Take your time and don’t rush and you will make it. My 8 year old made it up to the saddle and back down in 4.5 hours for a total of 7.2 miles. The stream running down the mountain is great way to take your mind off the burning legs and chest. Loved the crisp mountain air.

arrival time 7 am Sunday morning. parking lot was already full. had to park up the street on my Baldy St. When you start this hike, immediately the scenery is beautiful. Along a beautiful water stream flowing pretty good, and some old cabin ruins along the path. You by the 2nd mile, it's starts getting a bit more difficult because everything after that is shifting up hill all the way to the summit where it splits into many different trails. We took the Cucamonga peak trail for another 2.5 miles more. A few more switch backs but not as bad. once you get to the top! it's breath taking and beautiful.
tips- go early , bring your hiking issentials, lots of water, food, fruit or candy. Don't rush, you will burn out, go at your paste even if people pass you. it's ok to take as many stops as you want but keep a solid paste.
see you at the next adventure.

Always a great hike. Got there at 6:30am and got the last parking space. Go during the week if you have that option. It was a great day on top, no wind and sunny. Lots and lots of dogs today but they were all well behaved.

Kicked my ass

I love this trail!! A friend and I came to this trail looking for the secret cave (we didn’t find it) but were pleasantly surprised with the hike anyway! We did lose the trail on our way up towards the Rocky Peak Trail split, so using the map on here really helped us get back on track. On our way down, it was much easier to follow the purple arrows. when you reach Rocky Peak Trail, if you turn left you’ll loop back to where you parked off of Kuenher Dr. if you go right, you’ll continue on a much longer hike but we hear the views on Rocky Peak Trail are beautiful. We brought our dog but there isn’t really any shade at all, so bring lots of water and wear sunscreen and hats. Great views the whole way up...it gets pretty steep at times. We will definitely be coming back to check out more of Rocky Peak too!

One of the most beautiful hikes I have been on. It gets challenging at times but it is well worth it.

Three stars is because it’s so dusty. You couldn’t access the parking lot because the road was closed due to fire danger. So I parked along the side of the road walked up the hill a bit and found a place to enter. Once he and I had a Tonna fun and it wasn’t crowded at all then again it’s a Wednesday morning. Straight up I went and the rundown was very easy. If you got an hour and a half to kill go knock it out.

The waterfall (in November) was pretty small but the hike was nice, not a ton of people, and easy to get to, would recommend

We hiked this trail on Saturday 11/10 and tracked about 12.3 miles RT. The trail is well marked relatively busy. For me, the altitude and gradient were very doable, but I got pretty tired at about 10 miles. The other hikers were very friendly and were willing to step aside on narrow parts of the trail. The view was a little smoky due to wildfires but the visibility was still decent. The weather is perfect this time of year!! Cool in the morning and at the top, so bring a light jacket. We got a late start at about 9am and had to walk about 8 minutes from our car to the trailhead. It took us 4 hours to summit and a little under 3 to get down. Overall tiring and fun hike! (And of course, stopped at the Buckhorn for nachos and beer on the way back ;-) )

Hiked this on Sunday 11/11/18. It was beautiful and not as hard as I expected. What made this beautiful hike difficult was the freezing cold winds.
