Even during a weekday this can be a very busy trail. Its wide and well maintained and you can hear snippets of conversions from hikers concerning various aspects of the Hollywood scene.

My go to trail. Perfect easy to moderate 3 mile loop. Water stop half way through. Nice bathrooms now at the start and a big free parking lot though it sometimes gets full and you have to park on Laurel Canyon. Beautiful views of the Valley and the canyon. I love it! Have hiked this at least 100 times in the past few years.

As the early morning sun appeared over the hazy Inland Empire, it revealed a sun-trenched day... and a golden opportunity for a rigorous hike to a peaceful waterfall!

very nice hike, the hike keeps on giving with the bamboo forest and waterfall at the end

Amazing place ❤️

not my favorite very busy. not a huge fan of walking on streets.

Phone read 4.00 miles in 1:00:40 with 596 ft elevation gain, and I hung out at the falls for 10-15 minutes. Extremely mild hike other than a couple water crossings and a “steep” section near the falls. Falls were great a couple days after a hard rain.

A stunning hike. Parking is $25 (credit card only) but that buys you a three day pass to Haleakalā National Park, including the summit. If you have a National park pass or military ID, bring it for free admission. We arrived by around 12:00 and seemed to have beaten the crowd. The lot was packed by the time we were heading out, and the trail seemed to be getting pretty congested on the way down. After passing one dry waterfall half way in, we were worried that the higher falls would be dry also. They were not. Keep going — it’s worth it.

A nice hike, not too hard, yet challenging enough to give you a good cardio workout. I did this trail with my almost 7 year old son, and we started up the South side loop and went to the tower, chilled out, and decided not to take the loop and come back down the north side of the loop, only because my young son was tired, and I didn't want to push him. That part of the loop is next on our trail up together.

There is some shade, but not a lot. Parking is easy, there's plenty of room, and the hike is not crowded at all, and we went on a Sunday. Ya, there were people, but not too much. It is nice, you're dealing with nature, somewhat but if you're looking for an all out nature hike, this isn't it. If you want a nice cardio, and get a good workout, try this out. You'll like it.

My favorite trail in the Whittier area by far! You start off at Sycamore trailhead & can either ramp it up & hang a right up the switchback or continue into magical Dark Canyon.

FYI, for those saying there’s dog poop everywhere, it’s actually coyote scat for the most part because this area is busy with wildlife activity. This year alone we’ve encountered 3 rattle snakes, 1 gofer snake, numerous deer/rabbits/squirrels.

fun little run. not a lot of other people around which is good

My favorite local trail! Beautiful view and mostly shaded.

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.

First half of the trail has a marked path and is cleared fairly well. Once it splits the trail can get muddy and narrow in points, but we were hiking in november. There's definitely a few wet areas to cross so need to make good shoe decisions if you plan on hiking off season. The final creek crossing before the falls has a tree to crawl over or a 1' deep swift, cold, fast moving wet path - took our shoes off and carried the 7 year old over and let the 10 year old crawl the tree.

This is a decent hike to get out of the city and get a liiiiiiiitle wilderness.
Pros: easy parking, wide and well maintained trails (it's a fire road), small patches of shade, and cool views. You feel like you got a good workout by the time you finish.
Cons: a little boring (no variety in the views or trail type), dusty, could be too hot (little shade from 11-1) and parts of the viewpoints are ugly (no 360, there are maintanence buildings and fenced in areas).

Overall, if you live close by, it's worth a short trek to get a good workout with steady incline and some city views.

Amazing.

Beautiful hike with well-maintained trails. Signage to Cerry Creek Falls now well posted. The falls are worth the hike, in any weather.

Worth it. Lots of creek crossings, a few caves, clips, campground. Somewhat maintained Moderat trail

Love it

Beautiful and well worth the time.

Beautiful scenery and one giant beautiful tree just as you enter the trail. Jogger stroller friendly with a few small hills. Great for beginners. Just watch out for the dog poop.

Well travelled. Took Moro ridge up and back. Good starting climb and restrooms at about two and a half miles. Great view coming back!

The falls are truly a hidden gem! Great hike for kids. I’ve taken my 4 year old twice this year, once during summer and the falls didn’t have much water but still made for a perfect picnic lunch spot. And once this weekend, which after the rain it was a tad muddy however the falls were roaring and gorgeous! We even saw some salmon In the pond!

Great hike

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.

great waterfall.

Not terrible, but there are nicer trails. not much to see, and really smelly in a couple of spots. I heard young coyote pups calling to each other and start going nuts when I was going up the switchbacks. I was already having anxiety due to heights, so hearing that made me turn back before I reached the tip top. Damn nerves. Good cardio, I would do it again with trekking poles or walking stick to help me feel secure getting to the top.
