The falls are gorgeous! The teepee was an unexpected surprise. Great easy/moderate hike.

Lovely. If you go early most of the trail doesn’t get direct sunlight. Towards the end though the parking lot feels like 1000 miles away even though it says
.52 miles. Lots of rabbits and lizards! We even saw raccoon tracks.

Nice, light hike. Great for after work and for sunsets. Highly trafficked, so ideal for groups.

Really great place to go on a walk without being worried about wildlife or without worrying that you are too far from the rest of the world. It's the best of both worlds for us. We grab a snack at the Vons down the street then we start our daily walk/jog.

one of my favorite hikes here in socal

Great hike! Not long, bring the kids!

Perfect hike for introducing your kids to the wilderness been taking my daughter there since she was of walking age . Good times

Calm and beautiful on a Sunday evening!

Fairly easy hike through beautiful terrain. Our dog loved it :)

Awesome views and easy to navigate. Not much shade along trails until you hit the teepee and the waterfall. Arrived around 11 AM on a Monday and did not run into very many people. Bring water and sunscreen! And be sure to pick up after your four legged friends.

Not much shade until you hit the waterfall but overall, it’s a fun hike!

Great trail! Relaxing waterfall and scenery. They hike back up was a bit challenging. :) Bring water and a hat. Very limited shade.

Fun Hike! Bring your hat, sun glasses and sunscreen not very much shade on the trail. kid friendly! We brought our 3 1/2 year old daughter. She loved it and walked the whole way.

Not any shade, didn’t feel particularly easy, but still a great hike with great views.

So nice to have a neighborhood trail available. Literally in the neighborhood but can feel like an honest to goodness trail. Can even get you to nearby businesses while feeling like we live in the hills. Nice!

Great views. Fairly easy terrain if you take the path that overlooks the waterfall back, otherwise it's a decent uphill walk.

I love it. It’s a good morning exercise trail

Fun hike! There are some good hills (a little steep) and the trails are well marked. We went with a baby in a baby carrier and a five year old and it was perfectly strenuous without being overwhelming.

Fun hike, cool waterfall. Rattlesnakes out.

One of the best in the area; kid-friendly as well. Try to come on a weekday morning, early, for the best shot at solitude and quiet.

Cannot go into the water due to contamination. This was unfortunate, but a pretty place.

My boyfriend and I loved it!! beautiful hike and waterfall. We got surprise when we saw ducks at the fall. Highly recommend!!!!

Road wide enough for a BOB stroller. brought 2 babies along ...they loved it

My friend and I enjoyed this hike! It’s easy and falls are beautiful. Lots of people hike this so parking can become difficult to find. I recommend arriving earlier, doesn’t offer much shade until you get close to the falls. Great for bikes and dogs.

Nice trail with a little waterfall. The way out is all uphill. There’s picnic tables if you keep going past waterfall.

Fast fire road. Nothing special, but has access to many other MTB and hiking trails. Excellent for beginner riders and hikers. When starting from the Potrero side, you'll have a couple hundred foot climb at the end.

Great trail if you are a beginner or just getting back in the saddle mountain biker. Nice mixture of single track and fire roads

The sweeping coastal plains are magnificent and the landscape is perfectly suited to equestrian activities. There are plenty of trails for hiking, biking, walking and riding. The way this area has been preserved makes you think about what the California coast used to look like. Truly beautiful.

The trail for the hike has plenty of signs along the way and it is well-travelled - lots of families. The “waterfall” wasn’t more than a trickle today, so I would suggest visiting after a rain to see the waterfall in action. Plenty of frogs and tadpoles for the kids along the creek.

The area is in recovery after the 2013 fire, so don’t expect a lot of old, dense growth. It’s all fairly new growth that is green, but needs another 5 years to fill out.

If you’re looking for a nice coastal hike, check it out.

Beautiful walk to the top and bottom of waterfall. A lot of traffic on the weekends and can get super hot. Take extra water.

Great for dogs! Good parking and beautiful bridge entrance.
