Ew.

You’ll enjoy this hike if you like hikes that are completely overcrowded, not in nature, behind peoples houses, stepping over hundreds of dog shits that didnt get picked up, annoying / crying kids, no elevation gain, people playing music from their phones and mini speakers, watching people slowly struggle over a creek 2 inches deep holding their babies or small dogs lol, etc.

Avoid at all costs

Go early to avoid the crowds! This was a great solo hike on a Sunday morning. I took a beat at the waterfall to do some writing, which was lovely until a chubby kid took his shirt off, started yell-singing the milkshake song and then jumped in the water. Which he somehow didn’t expect to be cold. You can try to get out of LA, but you’ll never truly escape :)

this was a fun hike a lot of different trails and they go down on all sides of the mountain we saw a lot of people and everybody was really friendly we will definitely be coming back again

If you’re going on a weekend make sure to go early. It get packed real quick. Went 2 days after it rained and there was a lot less mud than I expected. Very beautiful hike.

Went hiking today, super easy hike. Great for kids too!! The falls was beautiful ✨

I did this hike for a geography class, it was pretty, heavily trafficked though. The waterfall was beautiful.

The hike is 4.4 miles, not 3.5 It gets busy so go early. Lots of path finding through piles of rocks, and a couple of easy water crossings. The falls were light but nice to watch.

Easy hike and great for young kids. Very crowded and many aggressive dogs off leashes.

Easily accessible and an easy-to-moderate hike means lots of people and dogs. Go early to avoid owners letting their dogs run amuck etc. With all the wild fires raging, it’s nice to know there can still be a safe trail to hike within easy reach from the city. The water volume is pretty low now due to the late season, but there is still a small water fall to reward the hike.

I love the alder trees here, clean, creek, picnic area, waterfalls, frogs, toads, birds, palm trees, very nice, not so busy

You can have picnics at the first trees, Willow, Pine, Spruce, Alder, Fig, Castor Bean, Cottonwood, and Sycamore

The Trail is a fire road 70% of the canyon, the end takes you up a few hills, dropping down to the best oak forest of the hike, then ending at the Sensoen Street, I saw some tracks going up the meadows past Sensoen Street, I’ll explore it next time, seems to take you up to the waterfall, or something?

The California Tree Frog and the Southern California Black Walnut are very rare, found here, in this Riparian Zone, there were goldfish in the first pond, someone dumped them I guess...

That’s All!!

Very easy hike. Very packed on weekends. Plenty of shade. Bathrooms at trailhead were clean. Plenty of parking. The only reason for a three star rating was due to how many people were on the trail.

Nice hike, with much needed shade. Watch your step, don't be like me who talks more than pays attention to whats in front of him

Decent outing with stream still active even into Fall. Moments of solitude but busy trail near housing and major roads. Moderate only due to some elevation changes but small portions of trail are even paved albeit broken down. Overall a nice nature outing for the area.

weird to see the graffiti and smokers but it's a good hike with kids.

Great trail. Very clean and wide.
We encountered a baby rattle snake, so be careful. Be aware of your surroundings. It’s all part of the hike/walk.

Nice trail not to hard good work out

WAY too crowded. Too many people. Dog crap everywhere and no one picks it up. Trash and crap graffiti. People on the trail don’t have etiquette and will block the whole trail and go slow. Won’t allow others to pass. Waterfall is unimpressive.

October 22: Solo’d to the waterfall and only one wrong turn.

This is a relatively easy hike but, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's very crowded on the weekends

It’s horrible here on the weekend... Lots of trash, dog poop, people making out and people smoking! Never on the weekend again!

Any waterfall because of the rain yesterday?

Going up the canyon on the shaded Gabrielino trail is pleasant enough, but the hike down and back up to the Gabrielino trail, on an old road grade, is not very fun.

Very nice. Plenty of parking, well marked trail, friendly people, beautiful scenery, and nice waterfall at the end.

Nice trails, you’ve to work hard right start from the parking area and work harder once you’ve reach the staring point of the trail. Just discovered that they’ve nicer view on the other side of the mountain overlooking the city. Hikers were friendly, polite and you’ll get greetings from them ease your fatigue. Klara, as usual waiting for me on the peak.

This hike was amazing , however there is a very steep part when you first start , that is nearly sand and rocks , I almost fell numerous of times , that part of the hike is dangerous , the rest of fun and steep .
