Only steep at the beginning of trail. Boring hike with views of the freeway and houses.

It was a beautiful clear day. The trail was busy but very manageable. The views are excellent and we absolutely had no issues with the dogs.

Easy, wise open truck trail. Pretty views facing west and SUPER convenient for a quick climb on your way home if you take the 15. Did a morning hike but I bet the sunset is lovely!

It rocks. I was told there was a Starbucks at the top but there wasn’t, so I’m extremely disappointed

Hiked this trail today. There's water in the falls, pool at the bottom is clear, mountains are green. Trail is nice and moderate. Had fun.

Such a good hike! I recommend doing this hike in the fall spring or winter. Sometime after it rains so the falls are running! Bring a bottle of water per person for the hike back up!

The slots are pretty cool. To get to the ladder take the "strenuous" route. There is a line but it goes quickly once people get over they have to squeeze through the slots to get to it. Views of the lagoon were great!

I loved this trail . Worth everything. Bring snacks and water . It’s downhill to get to the waterfall but be warned it’s all uphill with incline going back . There are rest benches and rocks if kids come along

Some of the steepest terrain appears in the first few hundred yards until you get to the top.

Waters was flowing nicely in the falls today. Mountains were green, which is unusual. Good day to hike. Four stars instead of 5 just due to this trail always being a bit crowded.

Great hike! The falls were really flowing with the recent rainfall. The way down is a bit narrow next to the canyon, but overall manageable to navigate. The only real downside is the drive in particularly with people who are carsick. We had a great time. Perfect spot to go right after heavy rain. We also brought two dogs along on leashes with no issues. parking lot was closed due to government shutdown.

Short scenic hike and the canyon at end provides some challenges for kids and so, somewhat crowded on weekends. The portion of trail that runs next to the salt marsh is scenic with benches, great place to bird watch and seems quieter. In an area of 2 million dollar plus homes, lucky to have this open area for hiking and birding

Parts of this trail were pretty narrow.

This would be a beautiful trail at sunrise/sunset. We went on MLK Day and it was insanely crowded. You are literally walking in a line of people like you're waiting for a ride at Disney all the way up to the top.

Great hike. Probably my favorite day hike in SD county. The water falls were eally flowing today. It's a great winter hike, very exposed and bring lots of water. I recommend good hiking shoes because it gets very slippery at the falls. We saw lots of people falling in trainers.

Great easy/moderate. With the new path the hike isn't as hard as it used to be but still remember that there is hardly any shade. Make sure to take lots of water and don't hike it in the middle of the day!
The parking lot is also closed due to the government shutdown.

Great Trail, Clean and well defined. Just hiked it today and the water fall is running. Take good hiking shoes rocks are slippery at the Fall! Great place to eat and make the trek back. It got crowded quick so go early to enjoy the place. If you have a dog leave him at home !!! They crowd the falls area even more, nothing worst than wet dog, dog poop in the area you want to enjoy. The trek back is strenuous! Bring plenty of water!

Beautiful, easy to access trail but the strenuous way is to actually go thru the slots other wise you only view from above.

This was a nice trail to take my niece up, I believe she was 8 at the time. It was great that it was located straight across from our campground. Nice view from the top. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

Parking lot was closed probably due to washout

Very nice hike enjoyed the water pools didn’t get to see any waterfalls but well worth the hike.

The new bottom half trail is much easier to follow and it really helps preserve the habitat on the bottom part of the falls. The new trail takes you directly to the second of the 3 falls. There is plenty of water running from the top of the falls. The weather was perfect for this great hike.

This is a strenuous hike and well worth it. Did this hike on January 11, 2019. Snow was 3ft or higher and temperatures in the very low degrees. We were equipped with the necessary things that we needed to finish the hike at night. Starting at 10:20 am and finished at 8:20 pm. Well worth it. One important thing is to have a map or download AllTrails.

I took the Eagle Peak Trail with my 11 yr old son this weekend. Great hike, views on the peak were more than worth the hike out. planning on falls trail after coming rains. Well worth the drive out.

A good hike but crowded

Nice easy trail, can’t take dogs all the way up the canyon because of the stairs. But really beautiful hike.

Unas vistas hermosas el sendero súper bien. Agua corriendo de las cascadas ,solo si es recomendable llevar zapatos de montaña.
El camino para llegar mucha curva pero vale la pena súper recomendable el lugar.
Fuimos el 1/10/2019

way to crowded! trail is ugly

Hike was great but the road getting there was nerve-wracking! One lane, blind turns on steep cliffs with no guard rails, gravel roads for the last couple miles, through water. Wasn't sure we were going the right way but google maps worked. Bring a four wheel if you have one and get ready for white knuckles on the Russian Roulette road but maybe I"m the only one who felt that way. So glad we made it back. Hike had amazing scenic views!

This is not a long hike, and there are limited portions of trails that are accessible due to construction. Also, the portion marked ‘strenuous’ up to the viewpoint, (there is also a not strenuous option to reach the viewpoint) is super cool, though very short. It takes you through a thin sand rock canyon with steep steps and a metal ladder to the viewpoint which allows you to see the marsh and ocean (& the 5 freeway). If you do the canyon portion while running/jogging a few times up & down, it can be a good workout, but good luck trying that in the evenings or on weekends because then it’s just a long line of people trying to get to the top. I bring friends here for the wow factor of the canyon portion, as it makes me feel like I’m in a very-mini Zion Nat’l Park for a few seconds. :)
