It rocks. I was told there was a Starbucks at the top but there wasn’t, so I’m extremely disappointed

Went after a good rain. Falls had more water than what I had heard. Good hike for city limits!

Hiked this trail today. There's water in the falls, pool at the bottom is clear, mountains are green. Trail is nice and moderate. Had fun.

Such a good hike! I recommend doing this hike in the fall spring or winter. Sometime after it rains so the falls are running! Bring a bottle of water per person for the hike back up!

Liked how the trail was flat and had only a few small hills. loved how it allowed you to walk next to the stream time and time again and led to the waterfall. loved the hike :) but even though it was flat, it was long. be prepared to walk back the 3 mi to your car. we turned back at the waterfall. gates close at 5 and there is a $3 parking fee .

I loved this trail . Worth everything. Bring snacks and water . It’s downhill to get to the waterfall but be warned it’s all uphill with incline going back . There are rest benches and rocks if kids come along

Waters was flowing nicely in the falls today. Mountains were green, which is unusual. Good day to hike. Four stars instead of 5 just due to this trail always being a bit crowded.

Not too difficult until the last half mile. It's a nice hike and doable with a dog. Pretty crowded though, but we didnt start as early as I would like.

Great hike! The falls were really flowing with the recent rainfall. The way down is a bit narrow next to the canyon, but overall manageable to navigate. The only real downside is the drive in particularly with people who are carsick. We had a great time. Perfect spot to go right after heavy rain. We also brought two dogs along on leashes with no issues. parking lot was closed due to government shutdown.

I love this trail, but man, was it packed with people and dogs this morning! There was some sort of wilderness course taking place as well. Few puddles from the recent rain, but nothing to derail you.

It took us around 3 hours but we had a slower dog in tow, so we moved somewhat slowly and stopped frequently.

Great hike. Probably my favorite day hike in SD county. The water falls were eally flowing today. It's a great winter hike, very exposed and bring lots of water. I recommend good hiking shoes because it gets very slippery at the falls. We saw lots of people falling in trainers.

Great easy/moderate. With the new path the hike isn't as hard as it used to be but still remember that there is hardly any shade. Make sure to take lots of water and don't hike it in the middle of the day!
The parking lot is also closed due to the government shutdown.

great workout at a fast pace. great walk with family and friends.

Great Trail, Clean and well defined. Just hiked it today and the water fall is running. Take good hiking shoes rocks are slippery at the Fall! Great place to eat and make the trek back. It got crowded quick so go early to enjoy the place. If you have a dog leave him at home !!! They crowd the falls area even more, nothing worst than wet dog, dog poop in the area you want to enjoy. The trek back is strenuous! Bring plenty of water!

Parking lot was closed probably due to washout

Beautiful walk down the lagoon. Birds, fish, and wildflowers in the spring.

Closed due to Federal shutdown. FYI.

Very nice hike enjoyed the water pools didn’t get to see any waterfalls but well worth the hike.

Beautiful view, easy to anyone!

The new bottom half trail is much easier to follow and it really helps preserve the habitat on the bottom part of the falls. The new trail takes you directly to the second of the 3 falls. There is plenty of water running from the top of the falls. The weather was perfect for this great hike.

We did this before sunset & it was really enjoyable from the top. It definitely can be busy, especially during the weekends, but it’s do-able. It was pretty easy. The incline wasn’t bad at all. Just watch footing for slippery rocks.

Easy access. Paved

I took the Eagle Peak Trail with my 11 yr old son this weekend. Great hike, views on the peak were more than worth the hike out. planning on falls trail after coming rains. Well worth the drive out.

A good hike but crowded

Unas vistas hermosas el sendero súper bien. Agua corriendo de las cascadas ,solo si es recomendable llevar zapatos de montaña.
El camino para llegar mucha curva pero vale la pena súper recomendable el lugar.
Fuimos el 1/10/2019

way to crowded! trail is ugly

Hike was great but the road getting there was nerve-wracking! One lane, blind turns on steep cliffs with no guard rails, gravel roads for the last couple miles, through water. Wasn't sure we were going the right way but google maps worked. Bring a four wheel if you have one and get ready for white knuckles on the Russian Roulette road but maybe I"m the only one who felt that way. So glad we made it back. Hike had amazing scenic views!

My first San Diego area hike. It was tough on my legs, but the views were fabulous. Folks on the trail were friendly. It wasn’t crowded, but we went on a Wednesday late morning. Puddles towards the top in the shade were frozen, but there was plenty of sunshine most of the hike.
