Great place to hike. what some people may not know, if you hike another half mile or so, you will run into another, HUGE HEART ROCK. I will post a pic of it. you will see my daughter in a red shirt.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that the hike becomes a little more difficult, with rocks, log crossings, branches, water streams etc.

it was fun!!

Great little
Hike! You have to go up and to the right to find the heart but its beautiful !

my wife and I did this with our infant and dog. the road was closed so we parked by the nursery at the bottom of the hill and made a nice 5 mile round trip. once you get to the camp site it's only half a mile to a really beautiful little spot. don't forget to be prepared to carry out your trash, there are only trash cans by the camp site!

Clear trail to follow. Pretty flat mellow hike. Some shade. Arrive early if you like less traffic on trail. Several mountain bikes and trail runners. First time here so I’m not sure how it was before the fires. This was still a very scenic hike and will only get better as the area recovers.
MASH set survived.

Awesome 4 mile hike. The mine at the end of the trail is super cool

This area was so much fun to hike! Although the recent fires have torched a lot of the greenery, there were lots of great spots for rock climbing and going off of the main trails, a nice river and cool rock formations. I’m a new hiker with an athletic background and this Trail was generally easy :) Lots it open space, I imagine it gets pretty hot during the summer. I got here around 8 am and left around 12 pm.

Great hike overall. Some inclines and downhills but nothing to step and unmanageable. I haven’t hiked in awhile and it was more on the moderate then easy side in that sense but for an avid hiker should be a breeze. Once you get to the streams half a mile before the waterfall it gets pretty shady but also fun navigating the trail. I’d definitely go back again!

Beautiful hike with a lot of shade from trees. Similar to Eaton Canyon but with a smaller space to hang out at the ending waterfall. Great for kids!

Amazing history along the trail. It is an easier, family friendly trail.

Incredible that this year-round waterfall is only 30 minutes away from the home I grew up in and didn't discover it until years after. This is a beautiful adventure on the mostly paved road. Getting to the lower section of the falls is a breeze, just follow the paved road up until you get to the first viewpoint of the falls then take the flat dirt path down to the lower section of the falls.

If you are up for a little bit of "canyoneering" you can bear right at the dirt road and head up the rocks to the upper levels of the falls. If you have never seen it or cannot see it, I got some sick drone footage of the waterfall in its entirety here:

Pretty trail.

Waterfall looked nice. Not crowded.

The gate to the road that leads to the campsite was closed, so I parked right outside of it. I hiked up and started through the Chaney trail. The trail was not packed at all, considering it was a Thursday. The hike was short, nice and easy hike, I would definitely go again!

This is by far my favorite hiking trails. Def a hidden gem! It’s hardly ever crowded. It’s a beautiful trail w/ lots of shade. There are crossings so get ready for the possibility of wet shoes. Fairly easy trail. You do need a parking pass. Leads to a waterfall.

Great little
Hike! You have to go up and to the right to find the heart but it beautiful !

great little hike, mostly paved until the last stretch to the falls that requires a little climbing and sliding down rocks. my husband, puppy, and i took the wrong way and ended up downstream and walked up the stream to the falls which i was happy to get lost over. nice water flow from the falls.

Amazing, easy, beautiful trail!! So much litter though. Just imagine if everyone took a little responsibility for keeping our public spaces clean. My wife and I picked up as much trash as we could, but there's more out there.

Great little trail. Paved and easy until you get to the very end, where it’s a little shimmying over rocks on a steep area for about 7 ft.

fun & easy, brought my 5 month old pup and my friend brought her daughter. saw a lot of families with 4+ year old kids, so the hike is generally easy. the stream is very pretty. you do have to cross it a few times to stay on trail. there is a great water flow at the falls at the end right now. so pretty!

Overall easy trail. Great trail for kids that are used to hiking. I wouldn’t take kids on this trail if it was there first time hiking. So peaceful and quiet. Went on a Monday morning and there was no one there.

nice brisk walk to Heart rock..

The switchbacks are hard and slippery. I slid down a few. The views are gorgeous all the way up. I’m glad I was able to do this hike but won’t repeat it as I didn’t feel secure on many of the switchbacks. Poles are essential.

This hike is great because it’s not too trafficked. It’s challenging and eye catching with a constant view of the city

Fun, easy hike that ends in a beautiful waterfall; not too many people. I parked off the road and hiked down on the trail which was scenic but its a single track trail so watch/listen for bikers. I especially had to be careful because I had my dog on a leash. For some it may be best to park in the lot by the campground. All in all a great way to get in some exercise and enjoy the outdoors.

Absolutely loved this trail. Rated as moderate due to overgrowth, mini creek crossing, and rocks for the first 3 mi or so.
I only came across 3 people on bikes, other than that had the rest of the trail to myself and the animals around.
If you are looking for a trail with scenery change, a little overgrowth, don't mind getting a little muddy, and just want seclusion, then this trail is a great oasis.
Highly recommended.
Wear good shoes!

If you park all the way down the hill at the campsite, then walk through the site, the sign from the campsite says that the falls are only 0.5 miles away, making the whole trip from your car and to the falls and back a flat, short, hike of just a little over 1 mile. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and only ran into a few other hikers as well as had the falls to ourselves. I liked how there were pamphlets on the local birds available to take from the info board in the parking lot. We saw the last of the fall color, some squirrels, and beautiful, clear, water since it had rained a week prior. If you’d like a short hike and are okay with crossing some streams, this little hike is very beautiful and time well spent.

It was an easy hike, and most of the way to the falls is a paved road. It was a great short hike with kids (5 & 10 year olds). The path to the falls is a bit sketchy. This trail also connects to more trails on Mount Baldy, if you want you can continue up the paved road past the turnout for the falls. There is a campground near the trailhead and a large parking lot with a pit toilet. You need an adventure pass to park and can't buy it at the lot. (I think they're available at the ranger station down the hill.)

a lot of people
