Very nice moderate trail but BEWARE OF TONS OF POISON OAK.

There are so many different ways to go. I definitely need to come back and explore further. :) Cool trail, though I would have rated it as hard instead of moderate. There is a steep uphill and flight of stairs if you find rattlesnake trail, totally off of the main trail. :) Coming back soon with more water. :)

Just a trickle of water at the falls but otherwise the views are spectacular of the surrounding mountains. Saw a variety of different birds, plants and trees. It was hot but most of the hike is shaded thankfully.

very easy walk with fantastic scenery, toughest part is finding parking

Do not go anytime after September! The only thing you’ll see is a trickle of water that is supposed to be a waterfall. The water is green, dirty, and gross. This hike was more about the journey than the destination at least that’s what we had to say to ourselves in order to convince ourselves that the hike wasn’t a total waste.

Took a beginner hiker and her dog and we had a blast! The hike provides great views with a couple stream crossing and at the end is a great little waterfall and pond to cool off in! Wasn’t too crowded either. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a fun afternoon hike!

I’m just starting to get into the world of hiking & camping, this was the first trail on my list & I really enjoyed it! I decided to go in the late afternoon (started hiking around 5) & enjoyed really nice shady areas & beautiful views of the mountains during the second half of the hike. There’s a ton of beautiful greenery & wild flowers/plants, & also ran into a few lizards along the way. The inclines & declines are nothing to be worried about, just be prepared to take a bunch of pictures. I recommend taking the narrow road down towards the larger parking lot, as the incline up after you’re done would be a brutal trek to your car. As a beginner, this hike was nothing too difficult. I will definitely come visit this trail again soon!

Wonderful ! Most of the hike is under beautiful trees. There’s only like 15 minuets under the sun. The water is cold and perfect for the summer

Nice trail beautiful views

It does not make a loop it's strictly going down hill and then coming back up. Definitely a good work out! There are a lot of little trails around the main trail.

I have driven my bike from azusa to seal
beach about three time a total of 52 miles I love every bit of the ride

Fantastic trail, mostly shade. Get there early cause parking lots fill up.

Nice view of the ocean from parts of this trail, but the majority of this hike is on a wide, dirt road. This would have been more pleasant on a cooler day or earlier in the day, at only 78 degrees+ it was brutal. Some shade, benches or a water fountain on the trail (like at Runyon Canyon) would be nice for these hot days.

I did this hike with my family including my 3 kids. They were brave and finished the hike, which was tiresome on the return because of the incline. Alot of poison ivy and some small snakes along the way. Weather was great, and trail was busy for the most part.

Great hike. my kids loved it and my dog enjoyed it aswell. Hike wasnt to hard. There is shade for most of the hike.

Great hike in the summer. The tree cover makes it cool. But watch for poison oak of the trail.

One of the best hiking trails! part of the trail is shadowed the other part is up and down but so narrow! just keep in mind you need to purchase a daily pass before you get there if not you might got a ticket! have hiking shoes because all half of the trail you have water and you need to cross the water but thew view and the waterfall is amazing!

There were quite a few bugs but the view of the mountains was beautiful.

What a beautiful area! A stream running through the entire walk leading up to a small but lovely waterfall. Decent elevation, inclining slowly but surely. Lots of tree cover so you're not baking in the sun until you get very far along the trail. Wonderful hiking trail.

Get a parking pass! Make sure you drive all the way down to park near the start, saves time. Great sceneries, shaded trail for about half the the way. Clear running water most of the trail. Water fall is nice, you can go into the base of the waterfall when water is at a high level. 10/10 would recommend.

Fun fire roads for easy mountain biking.

So beautiful, we went first thing in the morning & it was perfect. So fun to explore! We found both waterfalls, it took us about 4 hours but we did get a little turned around & took our time to stop when we saw a pretty view!

Very beautiful walk on a paved path. Very populated as it’s the center of town and lots of tourists.

Fun to walk. Great for beginners.

Absolutely love hiking here. Last year it was too foggy to see much though. This year we could not only see the hillside but also the sand and surf below. Very beautiful!
Only caveat is that there are several trails. You have to pick one and pay attention to the signs or your app or else you may end up doing a much more longer or more difficult hike than planned!!

Fun, easy hike. Great views and feels like you are out of the city for most of it.

Beautiful magical fairy land
