Beautiful trail, there were only 3-5 others on the trail, this may have been because it is winter and water is too cold for swimming, but regardless the scenery is stunning here! We took a completely off track way to get to the waterfalls and we loved every step! We picked up some trash that others had left there which is unfortunate, but the trail still gets 5 stars because thats humanities problem, not natures! Tips: Don't be afraid to go off trail, we didn't see anything that was dangerous (so long as you stay within reason), take some new paths to find your way around and go bouldering! If you care for the environment, take a little bag with you and pick up some trash on the way back, help out mother nature! Also look for the white arrow spray painted on the rock to get down to the river/waterfalls, there is a rope to help you with the steep descent, but we didn't need this, its not really that bad!

Go early to avoid the crowds! This was a great solo hike on a Sunday morning. I took a beat at the waterfall to do some writing, which was lovely until a chubby kid took his shirt off, started yell-singing the milkshake song and then jumped in the water. Which he somehow didn’t expect to be cold. You can try to get out of LA, but you’ll never truly escape :)

Easy quick hike. Stayed awhile taking pics. Towards the end u have to go to the right and the heart rock is at the bottom.

Perfect for a quick evening hike. We left at 4:30pm and was back in our car by 5:30. This included stopping for pictures.

Such a beautiful and easy hike!!!!

My phone showed 7.1 miles with 1870 feet of elevation gain in 2 hours 5 minutes. Extra distance came from having to park 1/4 mile from the trailhead and doubling back on myself near Dawn Mine. Chatted with a couple near the mine who was also turned around. Noticed another review mentioning signs where you don’t need them and no signs where you do. I’ll second that. Dawn Mine Trail side crisscrosses the creek a number of times. Sunset Trail side simply switchbacks in a hillside.

If you’re going on a weekend make sure to go early. It get packed real quick. Went 2 days after it rained and there was a lot less mud than I expected. Very beautiful hike.

Went hiking today, super easy hike. Great for kids too!! The falls was beautiful ✨

This is a good hike for those who enjoy a little bit of a challenge as a lot of the trail is steep and narrow. The dawn mine itself was quite disappointing as you can’t see anything but steel bars with a small canon out front. The trail is NOT obvious and you need to pay attention if you don’t want to get lost. Signs were available when you didn’t need it and absent when you did. The lot at the trail head is super small, but there is a bigger lot a mile down at Millard Canyon.

I did this hike for a geography class, it was pretty, heavily trafficked though. The waterfall was beautiful.

It took me 4hrs including snack time. Being a fast hiker, I am wondering other hikers took them only 2 or 3 hrs. Beautiful scenery from the top area, but sad to see too many majestic trees fell down because of drought. And wonderous to see the stream still survive to flow. Recommend though it is not a easy course. Alltrails app is a lot of help to find right trail direction. Thank Alltrails.

My favorite trail. Find the 9 openings to the dawn mine

We took our 4 year old and it was an easy hike for all of us. Went on black friday. Crowd was average and we did not have any problems finding parking. The creek has very less water at this time of the year, so there was no waterfall near the heart rock. Nevertheless, a beautiful hike through the forest. The heart rock itself is fascinating to view. Would love to go again in spring.

The hike is 4.4 miles, not 3.5 It gets busy so go early. Lots of path finding through piles of rocks, and a couple of easy water crossings. The falls were light but nice to watch.

This trail is part of Holy Jim, which has been closed from recent fires.

I like the trail. Very convenient and just right about the length. There are a few rocky roads need more attention. We did it after the training in the evening and really fresh air

Easy hike and great for young kids. Very crowded and many aggressive dogs off leashes.

Love this hike, it’s really fun for families with little kids bc it’s not too long and waters are fun to splash and swim in. Usually it’s got a nice crowd but plenty of space to spread out. Direct sunlight for most of the hike so bring water and a hat. Go during spring for the wildflowers.

Easily accessible and an easy-to-moderate hike means lots of people and dogs. Go early to avoid owners letting their dogs run amuck etc. With all the wild fires raging, it’s nice to know there can still be a safe trail to hike within easy reach from the city. The water volume is pretty low now due to the late season, but there is still a small water fall to reward the hike.

Great trail we went with our 2.5 yo that was able to do the bulk of the trail and we we're able to carry her the rest of the way.

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.

Great trail. Good for dogs. Probably not kids, though. Very steep in places.

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

Nice but a lot of up and down and much of it is heavily trafficked.

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

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.
