Great work out !! Nice early in the am.

very nice. depending when you go it can get a little crowded.

the trail was great not much water but still a great view and great pictures. but like everyone says the last part of the hike is all up hill to get back to your car so defiantly prepare for a work out

Nice day hike. Wasn’t much water at the waterfall but did find a garden snake and turtle there.

The waterfall itself is currently a trickle ending in a small pool. It’s still pretty. The hike to get to it was lovely, very green, lots of shady trees. Like folks have already mentioned that last half mile back up to the parking lot is rough and exposed. Almost no shade. Be prepared to sweat and get a good thigh workout. Also watch out for the gnats that follow you all the way through the hike. They wouldn’t let up!

Great hike...

Given the heat and lack of rain lately, the waterfalls were more of a faucet left on by accident. Still, would come again because of the hike to the falls. Shaded and beautiful.

As others have said, the first half mile or so from the parking lot, on the paved road, is a doozy. Be prepared to work to get back to your car.

Come early, bring a lot of water and yes, bring bug spray.

The first part is a bit difficult on the way back. Other than that it’s a beautiful trail.

Tried this trail for the first time and really liked it. I read other reviews that suggested to go left. That was a good call! The left has little to no shade and a greater incline. You'll appreciate the shade on the last leg of your run/hike. There is a fee to park $3 weekdays /$5 weekend and I saw staff checking car windows to see if they paid it not.

Is there a lake in the area?

This is a great place for beginner to intermediate hikers. This is a higher traffic trail, but it still gives you a great taste for the wilderness.

Beautiful trail, easy once you’re off the paved portion, the paved area is very steep so it had a a level of difficulty to the trail in the way back. Lot’s of cottages along the path that make this the enchanted forest. Decent size swimming hole and waterfall at the end. An enjoyable hike. Many trails off this one, not always clear on the descriptions which trail they are referring to.

Love this hike! Take my pitbull at least once a month. My favorite time to go is right before sunset. Great views of the valley and IE, on a clear day you can even see the LA skyline! Have seen many deer

Awesome cute trail , can be difficult every once in a while but over all a really calm hike !

Took my 3 year old with no carrier on hot day, bad move. Outside of that, nice little hike to the waterfall. We splashed around for a bit and made our way back. Would for sure do again with a carrier.

My hike was in mid-July so I got on the trail by 7:00am to beat the heat.
This is a wide well maintained trail good for all types of hiking. Two pay-parking lots (upper and lower) are available just south of the trail head and can accommodate over 300 vehicles for a flat fee of $3.00 for 4 hours. I recommend beginning the trail on your left as you enter the gate from the upper parking lot. The trail will head towards the west for about one mile and then turn north for a mile. At the two-mile point you will have reached the pinnacle of the trail and the best is ahead! As you descend the remaking 2.7 miles, there will be an abundance of shade to enjoy as you finish up.

Nice place to visit beautiful easy trail
The trail itself is pretty clear and easy to hike
Be prepared to pay for parking (ticket otherwise) you need some sort of pass -
Equestrians do not visit during the weekend there will be no parking for trailers -go during the week -
There are TONS of poison oak but trails are pretty clear (so stay on it ) bring bug spray - the only down side was it’s VERY rocky for horses towards the end closer to falls -fine for hikers just be careful if you have equine friends joining -will definitely be returning with my pup for a good hike the scenery and sound of the running stream is nice .

Not the most spectacular falls in the San Gabriels (especially in the summer), but well worth the drive. The creekside trail is mostly shaded and passes come quaint cabins from the early 1900s. However, the first half mile or so down to Roberts camp is on a paved, unshaded road with about a 12% grade, all uphill on the way back, so plan accordingly.

Pretty easy hike, until the hike out. This weekend was super hot so it was rough. Bring plenty of water and take rests.
My doggy was tuckered

Great hike! Don’t forget your insect repellent!

Beautiful hike plenty of shade too...

Nice trail but gotta pay for parking

Lovely trail not hard at all

Fully exposed with little shade. Trail is well marked, clean and busy.

took my wife and kids. our dog had fun fresh air great scenery

Great morning hike to the Waterfall. Going down is easy, but going up is a bit challenging.

Its what i needed to go! Fantastic workout

Nice workout. Went to the left, pretty good workout. Lots of other people but generally polite. Parking fee but totally worth it.

This is me and my K-9s favorite place to go if we have a free weekday off! Otherwise weekends suuuuuuuuckah! It’s super shaded and a great work out too! Dope little water splash at the end where we chill and eat some lunch! Either way be cool and respect Mother Nature and clean up after your self there’s more and more trash along the way and it sucks cleaning up after other people.
