Amazing scenic trail. The upper falls is a challenge to get up and down but well worth the effort.

A nice easy trail. The trail is dog friendly and has some cool views. There are a couple of nice rock formations around the trail. Just remember to get your adventure pass for the day, the park does check for the pass if you use their parking lot.

Alright but you can find better rock formations in Alabama Hills and Joshua Tree.

easy trail to get started. Quiet

Cool hike. Easy to moderate incline closer to the falls area. Worth the hike. No water last weekend Sept 1 2018. But cool being under where the water fall would be. Also steep decent into falls area but very manageable with rope that is there.

3/4 mile walk to trailhead from parking. Crossed 2 different snakes within the first .25 mile of trailhead. One was red and black

It was a pretty intense hike for a beginner like me. I went on a Saturday and ran across 15 other hikers on this trail (September 1, 2018) It’s a lot of up hill and not much shade. The beginning of this hike is beautiful but the middle to end is uphill and no shade at all (bring sunblock) I also saw lizards, dragonfly’s and a deer! No falls at the end, kind of bummed but gives me more of a reason to go back ☺️ Took about 3hours round trip.

Tips:
•Bring enough water
•wouldn’t bring small dogs
•walking stick
•sunscreen
•picnic area half way through hike

**Also I didn’t have an Adventure pass and had no problems**

A nice easy trail to enjoy with the family.

Easy, gradual, mostly flat hike. Lots of shade. River/stream was bone dry. (August). Took my dog and could only make it up the first two dry waterfall areas near the end of the trail. Would have liked to have ventured further if I did not have my dog and a hiking companion. I concur on previous posts about insect repellent. This was a midweek hike so we only came across two other (couples) hikers on our way back. Saw a couple mule deer and lots of lizards that my dog loved chasing into the brush. Best as an early morning, early evening hike when temperatures are 80 and above. Bring plenty of water for your dog on this and every hike. I have a clip on mini, collapsible bowl he carries hooked to his harness. Remember if we are warm and heated...they are wearing a fur coat. Lots of shade here to cool them down.

Definitely a fun hike. Not very challenging in the beginning but does get difficult if you want to climb to the second waterfall. The worst part is how far you have to park before the hike even starts. The main trail is mostly covered so it’s not as hot. As dude to the best the waterfall is nonexistent. If you want to see water you should wait until a big storm, which in SoCal rarely happens. We went with our two year old and made it just fine. Enjoy and be sure to drink plenty of water.

Nice moderate hike. There’s some elevation gain but nothing drastic. A little shade as you go but mostly you’re under the sun. Went on a Saturday afternoon and came across only a handful of people. Overall I enjoyed it. Just don’t expect the falls to be moving if it hasn’t rained in a long time.

I went hiking alone on this trail yesterday evening for my first time. It was not challenging in incline, but in awareness of surroundings. There is something very inexplicably ominous about this trail to me. I would definitely go again, but not alone during dusk and without insect repellant.

I love this trail, especially after a wet winter when the creek and waterfall are really flowing. I've also seen quite a bit of deer on this trail.

No waterfall and currently there is a foul smell where the waterfall is located. I suggest coming back after it rains, usually this is a nice hike.

Water fall is empty at times but a great short trail.

Started from Big Tujunga Cyn road, as the gate to the trailhead was locked. Started out at 7:20 AM. It was dry, but very beautiful vistas the whole way. I rate this trail intermediate. Sun hit me at 8 AM where the trail is high on the ridge. Took some pictures of the falls and back to my car at 9:20. Al in All, a really awesome hike.

Beautiful

Definitely on the easier side of moderate but a very nice morning hike. beginning is a mix of shaded and exposed sections of trail with light incline criss-crossing dry river beds which is expected in mid July.

Easy hike and great for kids. Lots of colorful dragonflies this time of year.

This trail’s parking needs a recreation pass

First time hiking this trail. Our 6 year old had no problem keeping up and led the way most of the hike. Great scenery.

The route google took me to Edison street was closed due to construction but read another review and drove about a 1/4 mile down road and found a place to park, followed fire road to top which was about 2 miles. Once at top there are trails everywhere and you can go much further than just 7.3 miles. Great views of Palmdale and surrounding areas.

Easy to get to it from the highway. Many people taking photos in nice dresses, etc. massive picnic table areas for large events. Some rocks are very close to the parking so you don't have to necessarily hike to get awesome selfies.
