nice to go with family

Karla Gomez has no idea what a review encompasses. It's unfortunate that it's closed due to the recent fires but by no means does it diminish the beauty of it. It's a neat little trail with ample shade and plenty to look at.

nice hike with portable restroom in parking lot

Super easy. Mostly a fireroad hike.

Trail closed due to fires right now

Very easy hike. Very packed on weekends. Plenty of shade. Bathrooms at trailhead were clean. Plenty of parking. The only reason for a three star rating was due to how many people were on the trail.

Nice hike, with much needed shade. Watch your step, don't be like me who talks more than pays attention to whats in front of him

Went on it today was pretty easy but had a great time and saw such wonderful views

Convenient trail for people who don’t wanna drive to the boonies to hike and a good workout. The trail have distance markers which makes it an excellent place for timed training

Amazing Hiking Trail !

weird to see the graffiti and smokers but it's a good hike with kids.

I loved it! Very calm a relaxing!!

Loved it!! Such an amazing peaceful place

It’s a good Hike it’s not for beginners or older dogs. Bring plenty of water.

WAY too crowded. Too many people. Dog crap everywhere and no one picks it up. Trash and crap graffiti. People on the trail don’t have etiquette and will block the whole trail and go slow. Won’t allow others to pass. Waterfall is unimpressive.

October 22: Solo’d to the waterfall and only one wrong turn.

Definitely beautiful views, not alot of shade. Alot of different ways to venture off to. Probably would be a little more on the hard side versus moderate due to steep spots, stairs and cliffs.

Good Socal hike with great views of the mountains.

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 :)

It is a good hike overall, but not great. The length is recorded more of a 3.8 mile hike.

Initial descent is steep and on a road for the first 3/4 mile. From there it’s dirt roads/trails.

Several other hikers along the trail, one of which warned of a rattle snake ahead on the trail.

Unfortunately we got to the end and there was no water at the falls. Definitely a disappointment, but just no rain recently to provide the spectacle.

This is a relatively easy hike but, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's very crowded on the weekends

This is your go-to family friendly hike. Be sure to arrive early as parking spots fill up quickly. (I suggest arriving around 8 am unless you want to hike to the trailhead) You will need an Adventure pass. You could purchase a day permit near the trailhead for 5 dollars, make sure you have it in cash. Have fun!

The Ferndell loop was a great start to a great day of hiking! Got to see different wildlife and little streams. Great for kids, pets, etc. and you might even spot a celebrity along the way!

It’s horrible here on the weekend... Lots of trash, dog poop, people making out and people smoking! Never on the weekend again!
