Easy short hike. So much graffiti.

Sooo fun!! Easy and awesome sunset with the photo op!!

Love this hike. Can be super packed on the weekends so come during the week during the middle of the day. Beautiful little oasis at the bottom of the falls. Don't walk across the reeds and cattails just let nature be and respect it from a distance :)

Simply beautiful

enjoyed the hike went on the windiest day ever but it was well worth it.

Nice little lunch time hike. I like going to the right for one full loop, then going back up the left side until it gets down to the lowest part then turn around again to get 3 uphill portions. Only way to get the heart rate up in my opinion.

This was such a easy short hike. You walk along the dry river for a bit then take a little trail up into the canyon. a small section of scrambling and climbing for maybe 5 minutes. Just enough to get ur blood pumping then soon enough ur there. the waterfall is beautiful. Lots of large rocks and scenery. It's the perfect area to have a little picnic and relax..

loved it. definitely not for kids! too many places where they could fall.

The hike was very clean, there were many trails available. I was pleased that I saw no liter, just graffiti, which is typical. I took my kids (8 and 15) with no troubles. Will go back again!

You’ll start off walking along the wide dry river rock, but stay to the left side of the valley. It’s about a 25 min walk until to start the trail uphill. It’s not long until you reach the top waterfall, if you can overlook the vast amount of graffiti on the rocks and trees during the hike, it’s a pretty cool site to see the water falling off the side of the cliff running down the wall when you reach the top!

There were some steep bits that had some tricky footing, but the view was great. I went pretty far off the trail, but it was well worth it because the view for better the higher I got. I definitely recommend going higher that the trail if you have the time and energy.

We parked on Poppy Ave for free and walked a block to the trailhead followed trail to the end and took bob cat trail back down which joins buck gully. Very nice and about 35% shade. 541 ft elevation took 2 hrs and burned 1000 cal. More of a moderate hike. 5.3mi round trip. Saw a 3ft snake:)

Great hike! So fun for Oktoberfest and getting in the Halloween Spirt!

It is a 4 when water is in the creek it would be a 5. I would say it is easy to moderate vs just easy. For a first hike for children they definitely need to watch their step.

Very pretty.

This trail is gorgeous. It’s best to go early in the morning as the surrounding mountains provide tons of shade. We went in October so there was no water, but even without it, it’s a beautiful trail. If it’s your first time there, bring the trail guide map. It helps point out specific historical points along your hike, which was really cool!

great spot to take the dogs especially if they love water :)

Nice hike. We got there around 0915 and parking was tight, this was a fall morning. Trail is exposed, so bring a hat and make sure to wear sunscreen. Did the Paradise Falls trail with an added leg bypassing the water treatment plant down the valley. Neat to see a water fall in the LA area this time of year, and the hike along the creek was also pleasant. Lots of families, which is always nice to see. Also passed a couple mountain bikers. Plenty of options to extend your hike, and some great views throughout the hike.

The water fall only has water when snow starts to melt.

Take giuded tour....included in addmition. you will learn a great deal about the area and native peoples.

Beautiful, fun and easy hike. There was no water when we went on Sept 23rd, but was still such a nice hike. A little bit of an incline on the way back out, but my husband and I are always taking our kids (2 months, 3, 5, and 7 years old) out for hikes, lake/river swimming and fishing, 4 wheeling and camping trips so they didn't have to hard of a time. We just let them go their own pace. We lucky when it came to other hikers. The parking was great and we seen maybe 4 other party's hiking. We defiantly want to go again.

We loved this hike. Went September 29th and the weather was perfect! Beautiful waterfall and wonderful little creek. We brought our pups with us and they loved playing in the pools and creek. Was a bit confused at first cause there is no obvious trail...you have to hike straight through the rock for a bit to find the trail that takes you to the waterfall. Such a great little place ❤️❤️❤️

lots of pretty scenery. if your brave you came even traverse it with a stroller.

it was a nice ride I road it on a weekend Saturday mid-afternoon, there wasn't a lot of people on the trail so that was nice the trails fairly thin and it's short but it's nice to just check out and get a quick ride in.

plenty of things to do on the bike. has it all

Amazing hike I took my 3 year old and 5 year old they loved it and this app helped us to find the water fall

Took my 3 year old and 5 year old they loved it and were able to hike it . Just cross the stream you come across a bed of rocks goes straight but more towards the left mountain try to stay hugged to it then I’ll find a trail to hike up it’ll get really steep and rocky but not impossible

This trail is ok, but not worth going out of your way for. Very dry and dusty. A few good views but throughout a lot of the trail you can still see neighborhoods. I went around sunset and ran into a large rattlesnake right near the trail! The waterfall was little and serene but very busy with other people. Probably a trail best for families.
