Nice trail beautiful views

Stairs stairs and more stairs good workout

Once you get into the creek, the hike is more challenging and much more interesting. The climb back into the falls is the toughest and most satisfying part! This hike isn't the easiest, so make sure you're ready for it, and take lots of water with you.

Nice trail! Says watch out for snakes and poison oak, but did not encounter any snakes just rabbits.

Relatively easy trail. The most difficult part of the trail is the entrance side near the 57 fwy but the difficulty is only for a short while. Most of the hike was easy. There are several creek crossings and beautiful trees for the sun to shine through. Kids could get tired just because of the distance but difficulty level is easy

Went on a solo hike on a Sunday. it was difficult to find the trail, the directions on how to get there, from this app, are not accurate at all. I had to stop and Google it. Use this address: 2100 powder canyon trail. it will take to the trail head and the parking lot which is free and it was not busy or full at all. It is a dirt and gravel road and it is very uneven so if your car is low, you will hit some road underneath your car. The trail itself was fun. there are some spots that have plenty of shade but most of it was very open. there are alot of forks and different ways to go that take you to other trails. I stuck to the map and followed the app and GPS. it started to get kinda confusing towards the end but watch the GPS from the app and you'll be fine. plenty of inclines and it will challenge you!

This trail is a nice and easy hike that's perfect for the family and doggies. There's tons of shade provided by the oaks and alders. Unfortunately, there was some graffiti on parts of the trail, but if you can look past that, you'll still find beauty around you. The elevation gain/loss is barely noticeable since it's only 416 feet. This should make the hike pleasant. The keen hiker will note that there are several species of plants that don't belong in the creek. I found bamboo and Mexican Fan Palms growing near the creek which normally don't grow there. There's also lot's of poison oak growing along the creek bed so great care must be taken when going near the creek. Overall, it was a nice hike and I would do it again.

Overall I enjoyed this trail and would do it again. I did this trail in the summer so there was no waterfall at the end but the place where it would be is still pretty cool. The trail is easy for most of the path and gets moderate towards the end. You follow along a paved/dirt road for probably 2 miles and then you find the trail head. From there you follow along a riverbed for about a mile and a half. The last 1/2 mile of trail is alot of bouldering with quite a bit of incline.

Bring lots of water, I brought 2 liters and ran out about a mile from the parking area.

Nice trail close to home, we add a few miles by walking up and back from our house. if you look at the data in the original post you'll see it has 5 laps at the top 1/4mile loop to explain the 2.7mile length. beautiful views from up there worth a few laps. 180 steps to the top, counted them on the 4th of July on a nice hike in the morning before the heat.

My wife and I have done this before and enjoyed it for easy hills, nice shady Oak trees and gentle creek and we found a rope swing over the creek. We will be back but not today it's 112 degrees.

Love this trail but gotta go after a heavy rain to see the waterfall in all its glory...and it’s a long hike take plenty of water and good comfortable shoes a lot of climbing over rocks

I would not recommend this trail. There aren’t many signs so the trail is hard to follow. You end up on a fairly busy and narrow road (with no sidewalk) which leads into Raging Waters. We were passed by several trams and busses. More stress than it was worth.

Awesome hike if you don't mind climbing over and under rocks and fallen trees. I was really beautiful . You should go early in the morning because it gets really hot. The end was where the water fall is supposed to be. It was a very nice adventure and I do recommend.

Took my 7 yr. old. Didn’t make it all the way but it was well worth it. Lots of shade and some creek crossings. A good place for a family hike. Certainly recommend it.

This trail is closed. Don’t know why this is not showing on the AllTrails app.

I really got my workout on this hike!!

Long way on a paved road to the BOULDERS. Never seen such big ones! Fun climbing, jumping, slipping on our bottoms.
Missed the top, ran out of time. Will be back!

No waterfall in the summer when we went and the barren waterfall smelled like sulphur.

However, I will say that the bouldering was really fun and made up for the non-existent waterfall.

Good trail, unmainteined, a lot of graffitis and some homeless around made it uncomfortable.. easy and simple.

not sure where the 2.7 came from. just did the while thing and it was 1.6
currently the stairs on the diamond bar st side are closed so park at the playground

Trash on the trail, graffiti on the rocks, and 2+ miles of fire road before you get to the real trail.

Great place for a short hike., more like early
Morning or evening stroll

was a good hike. went early morning loved listening to the birds. very peaceful.

It is a trail with a nice park, but not too much vegetation and not very nice scenery. Dog friendly.

I would say it is a nice park if you live nearby.

Great hike next door to me! I dig it just not when it’s 80° or higher! Main reason I always bring my dog and this hike in heat is no way enjoyable to her! It’s great to and gets the blood pumping just bring a hat and some H20! Stay safe my friends!

I loved every moment

Nice, shady trail. Mostly flat except for the beginning and end. Not easy when I have to carry my toddler back to my car in the direct sun. Will probably return when my daughter gets older and on a cooler day.

If you have no cartilage in your knees, avoid this trailhead and use another, HOWEVER, it's a beautiful trail. Plenty of shade, flowers, plants are still green, and the stream has enough water in to give a couple of little boys a lot of fun for a couple of hours. I'll definitely take this trail again, but I'll start at another trailhead.
