Beautiful hike. Felt like I was going through different climates at certain stages. The rope down to the falls can be iffy but once your down there its gorgeous. There was some water on the falls but not gushing.

LOST kid's retainer. If seen/found, please post to let us know here. Otherwise, it was a great hike - beautiful views in all directions, especially of los angeles and ocean. Some puddles but nothing you can't easily step over/around.

great hike, VERY crowded. went on a thursday, a less busier day but still saw a lot of people on the trail. parking wasn’t difficult, they have a lot as well as an overflow lot. half of the hike is relatively easy on a paved road. take a left when you come across both forks. the second half of the hike (after you get under the bridge) get significantly prettier and shadier. you cross the stream a few times before the waterfall. the water flow was good. too much graffiti but honestly not a lot of trash. makes a great skill level for beginners.

Perfect for a Sunday afternoon afyer a winter rain, and would be even more lovely on a quieter day during the week. just the right amount of stream and boulder hopping for a fitst day back after the holidays.

Cute little waterfall at the end of the hike. Pretty easy terrain to hike on, especially with a dog.

Love it

Relatively easy, but pretty long. There are lots of nice spots along the trail. Especially near the river. Free parking but it is very limited. Dogs can be on the trail but the juerros complain if you let them off, no matter how well trained/behaved your dog is.

A great way to start the new year

Great accessible hikes with many options

Easy access. Great quick walk with amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and LA.

Great trail to take with kids, especially for a first time hike. It’s pretty heavily trafficked, so you may be annoyed if you like quiet hikes.

It’s very good app for hiking I love when I go to live a experience knowing the way and the beautiful panoramas

Great hike with variations over landscapes, vegetation, and elevation. Wish to see more water falling in my next visit.

Love that hike. Just did it with my 3 and my 4 year old. Took us three hours. Very diverse hike with beautiful scenery.

We had fun did a little over 4 miles round trip. Got pretty close to the falls but became tough for my wife at 30 weeks pregnant.

Easy trail. I did not care for the amount of people and the dog deposits on the trail. It was good for a quick outing.

Such a beautiful nature I love the area

Such a beautiful adventure Nice beautiful very friendly environment

super easy hike. very very over crowded, especially during the summer. your lucky if there is even water falling from the falls. the trail is easy, its always busy so u just follow the crowd as u go.

Fun and a well groomed trail!

Great hike up to the white gate. We ran into hikers who had just seen two mountain lions and he showed us a video he took. Luckily we didn’t see them ourselves. Great view from the top.

Did it from the neighborhood side. short hike from there.

Beautiful! It felt very peaceful walking along the creek.

Great afternoon hike. Trail tends to get very crowded on the weekend and over holiday breaks. A large portion of the trail requires you to walk over streams by stepping on rocks so be prepared to wear the proper footwear. To avoid crowds and inconsiderate hikers I would recommend going earlier in the day during the week.

There ARE a lot of options for hiking here. Based on someone's comment below I took the far left trail going up rather than walking up through Caballero Canyon. The far left trail which doesn't seem to have a name (it's the trail left of Little Hectic) was steep and challenging to be honest. A bit more than I wanted to do. Not impossible but it took some work. I was hoping to hike 6 miles so the plan was to hike up the un-named trail, do the figure 8 at the top, and come down Lower Hectic. I ran out of light for an unknown trail and came down through Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway. The trail to the far right, the one west of Caballero Canyon, is beautiful, not too hard, and fun. And I highly recommend taking the time to hike out to Farmer's Ridge Trail overlook. The view of Santa Monica and Catalina was fantastic.

We hiked the trail up to Mission Peak and down to the bottom of the peak using a car shuttle. Wonderful terrain throughout.
