Hiking

This is a fun hike! The first 2.4 miles are on a road, and although it’s a road it’s very pretty. Then the trail drops down to the creek bed and it’s largely bouldering from here on, with trails alternately on the sides of the creek. The creek was largely dry today and we ran out of time before we got to the falls, but heard those were try too. It was pretty crowded on a Friday afternoon - not sure how crowded it gets on a weekend. The only unfortunate part of this hike is that some losers have put quite a bit of graffiti on the boulders in the creek.

Easy not hard. Gradual incline for the first three miles. Easy downhill on the way back. Easy parking and plenty of it.

Great hike, although the new graffiti is sad to see. Would recommend bringing lots of water and be prepared to climb over boulders.

Super rocky, more of rock climbing than hike! Bring LOTS of water cause it’s a long hike. Graffiti there looks like trash. Other than that great time!

This was a fun trail! The first 3 miles is an old road, then it splits where a sign says black star canyon falls. You can either go up the mountain following the road which is very fun but has lots of cyclists bombing down it around the blind curves. Going to the falls is a fun challenge climbing over the big boulders and rocks. It’s sad to see a lot of the graffiti that’s now there compared to how it was even a few months ago. We took our belgian Malinois who had tons of fun jumping in the stream and climbing with us.

this is one of my favorite trails. first time being back in a while and I was heartbroken to see all the ugly graffiti. especially on and inside the waterfall. I just don't understand why you would deface something so beautiful like a WATERFALL. just keep nature pretty:(

I did this hike last year February 2020, the waterfall was flowing nicely and there was hardly any graffiti. It’s so sad what people have done to the place.

Great hike in Orange County. The boulders there are my favorite around the area. The only I hate about this hike is the graffiti

Challenging rock climbing, but I was able to do it alright for my first time. At one point you have to climb up a rope and propel yourself up or down. Waterfall was dry (end of January when I was there). Spray paint is both kind of cool and kind of sad. Rained towards the end. Give yourself enough time to get up and down before dark.

It’s less busy then taking the trail to the water fall. The trail starts gradually going up then starts to get steep.
