Due to government shutdown you have to park down the hill by the nursery. This adds 2 miles to the hike. Right now because of the heavy rain last week the water is really flowing and so beautiful! There are many stream crossings to get to the waterfall so be ready to get your feet and lower legs wet. We hiked with our dogs and children and it was a great time! Very beautiful hike and i highly recommend going soon to see this volume of water.

Great waterfall hike!! Easy 1 mile to Falls from camp ground. If u park in upper lot & take trail down it’s an extra 1.5 miles RT. Also lots of shade. Has options to add more miles on upper trailhead. Sunset Ridge can go on for miles...

The lake is really really low. You can’t even see water until the back half of the trail and then it’s more of a swamp. The vegetation is still recovering from the fire. It was still a great hike to do!!

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

it was fun!!

my wife and I did this with our infant and dog. the road was closed so we parked by the nursery at the bottom of the hill and made a nice 5 mile round trip. once you get to the camp site it's only half a mile to a really beautiful little spot. don't forget to be prepared to carry out your trash, there are only trash cans by the camp site!

Good hike. One little steep hill. Very easy

Great hike overall. Some inclines and downhills but nothing to step and unmanageable. I haven’t hiked in awhile and it was more on the moderate then easy side in that sense but for an avid hiker should be a breeze. Once you get to the streams half a mile before the waterfall it gets pretty shady but also fun navigating the trail. I’d definitely go back again!

Beautiful hike with a lot of shade from trees. Similar to Eaton Canyon but with a smaller space to hang out at the ending waterfall. Great for kids!

Waterfall looked nice. Not crowded.

The gate to the road that leads to the campsite was closed, so I parked right outside of it. I hiked up and started through the Chaney trail. The trail was not packed at all, considering it was a Thursday. The hike was short, nice and easy hike, I would definitely go again!

This is by far my favorite hiking trails. Def a hidden gem! It’s hardly ever crowded. It’s a beautiful trail w/ lots of shade. There are crossings so get ready for the possibility of wet shoes. Fairly easy trail. You do need a parking pass. Leads to a waterfall.

fun & easy, brought my 5 month old pup and my friend brought her daughter. saw a lot of families with 4+ year old kids, so the hike is generally easy. the stream is very pretty. you do have to cross it a few times to stay on trail. there is a great water flow at the falls at the end right now. so pretty!

Fun, easy hike that ends in a beautiful waterfall; not too many people. I parked off the road and hiked down on the trail which was scenic but its a single track trail so watch/listen for bikers. I especially had to be careful because I had my dog on a leash. For some it may be best to park in the lot by the campground. All in all a great way to get in some exercise and enjoy the outdoors.

If you'd like to get some walking in a safe environment, this is the place!

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.

a lot of people

Great easy trail, very populated during weekends.

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.

The trail was extremely easy due to it being well maintained. A portion of it was a preserved habitat for California Gnatcatchers so there are no dangers to it. I ended up taking multiple different paths and ended up at the "Top of The World" just in time for a beautiful sunset. Total trip was about 7 miles and almost 2 hours.

Recommend for beginners or casual hikers.

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.

Nice and easy walk for everyone.

I hiked this for the first time and it was a nice hike! I ended up doing 8 miles because I took a few wrong turns

Easy hike, not too long or difficult. My 3 year old son and our 10 year old boxer enjoyed it with water breaks and snacks to keep our energy up. Not too much shade from trees along the trail (maybe due to recent fires) but a few here and there to hide from the sun for a drink or cute pic.

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

Fun and easy hike and the fall was beautiful. The parking lot was closed because of fire season. The incline from the parking area was the hardest part and added a mile to the hike. When the parking lot is open I would recommend for children.
