Both waterfalls were flowing and the creek is very nice. The trail is hot, no shades, uphill. Good traction shoes is recommended.

Hiking

Steady, gradual incline on gravel road/path all the way up to the enchanted forest and falls. Then mostly downhill all the way back. Good for kids.

It was a good up hill climb then an easy decent to the creek followed by a lot of scrambling

Over grown so wear pants. Very steep for the majority of the hike. Not many people and dog friendly.

HikingGreat!

Loved this! Definitely good to have footwear with good grip given the gravelly terrain! Good steady incline providing and nice steady challenge. Multiple trail options. Loop around of go straight for the Falls! We went straight for The Falls! Was Awesome!

It was a nice hike. Basically walking rocky roads. Part of the preserve was smoother. No trees or shade until you reach the falls.

Came on a Tuesday around 2pm for a quick lil hike. Coming down around 3pm more and more people coming up. Speakers, no masks. So if that’s a concern of a quiet peaceful hike this isn’t the place I used to hike this all the time 2-3 years ago now there’s so much graffiti at the waterfall which is sad. The water is flowing.l

Hike to Third Stream campsite was not hard. There are a couple spots where the trail gets lost while crossing a creek or dry riverbed, but it’s not difficult to find on the other side. The road to the trail is bad! You don’t necessarily need an off-road or 4WD vehicle, but something with a lift or some elevation so you don’t bottom out.

HikingNo shadeRocky

A nice little workout, with some elevation gain. The train is rocky, so wear appropriate shoes. There’s no shade until you get to the water, so wear sunscreen and bring drinking water. There were a lot of Cuties peels by the creek....While the peels may be natural and decompose, the stickers are not. Also, cuties are not natural to the environment soooo pack it out. If you can bring trash in with you, you can bring it out.

Hiking

4/3/21 Hiked to Etiwanda Peak and included the 3rd stream crossing waterfall and loop trail to Stonehouse for a total of 20 miles and 6k feet. The road in is rough, and is much worse this year. High clearance truck/suv required, 4wd recommended. A crossover/cuv awd type vehicle may be able to make it but this is questionable. 2wd cars will not be able to make it unless road is repaired. In general this trail is hard/moderate, very lightly used, and remote. I do not recommend unless you are an experienced hiker. The bugs were not noticeable in morning, but there were a few in evening. This area tends to get very buggy, so be prepared for that. It is also usually hotter than the Baldy side so dress accordingly and bring enough water. At this time most of the creeks had lots of water (snow still present) but I do not know if or when they dry up. The trail to Icehouse saddle is easy to follow for the most part. There is even a new sign for 3rd Stream Crossing campground. The trail is fairly well shaded, a little less shade than Icehouse Canyon Trail. Expect a few downed trees and rockslide crossings. The final approach to the saddle is still covered in snow and route-finding is necessary. It's pretty much a straight shot up the canyon so there is no way to get lost. There is snow most of the way up the Cucamonga switchbacks. It is deep and melting rapidly. Once at Cucamonga junction we attempted to follow the trail but for 95% of way to Etiwanda it is buried in snow. The snow is very deep and we postholed most of the way there. It took 3 hours to go from Cucamonga to Etiwanda and back. It is best to stick to the ridgeline where there is less snow. My tracks are still there and it may be easier for the next person. Crampons helped a lot. Microspikes were better than nothing. Gators required. Iceaxe optional but I didn't use mine. Snowshoes would really have helped but that is a lot of hiking to only use them for the last mile or 2. Don't be that guy who goes up there with no snow gear! If you look up at the mountains and see snow (on the south face) that means there is a lot of snow on the north face, even at lower elevations. Either bring the gear or turn around when you hit snow.

I couldn’t find the entrance. Looks like new construction for homes and there is a sign that says “for Canyon use only”.
