one of my favorites! never disappoints. water makes it such a gorgeous trail. good for summer (if appropriately prepared with water, hat, and sunscreen!!) or winter.

The trail was extremely easy due to it being well maintained. A portion of it was a preserved habitat for California Gnatcatchers so there are no dangers to it. I ended up taking multiple different paths and ended up at the "Top of The World" just in time for a beautiful sunset. Total trip was about 7 miles and almost 2 hours.

Recommend for beginners or casual hikers.

This is an awesome trail with great views. Not a hard trail not easy either.. the low rating is due to the excessive flow of people heading to the falls!! A friend wanted to see the falls so went back with her but started at 6:30am and no one was there when we got there!!!

Great trail. Good for getting into shape.

I don't know if I misread the mile marks but for us it was longer than 9 miles and we didn't reach the end. We stopped at 4.5 miles as it was getting darker and turned back. I was expecting the trail end at 3.8 miles based on the total of 7.9 miles. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful hike. It was like walking through a slightly elevated landscape garden. I just love the saguaros!

Did this hike with family while visiting my sister the day before Thanksgiving. There was not as much water flowing at the falls this year compared to last year when we did this hike, but it’s still beautiful. A few water crossings, but we didn’t even get our feet wet this year.

Busy but pretty hike

Not sure where the hike is or why it is rated as moderate with less than 1000 feet of elevation (I didn't see the latter until now). I didn't see any mountains. Just flat dirt trails. Perhaps I didn't go far enough but I got bored. Good for biking, walking, running. Not good if you're looking for a real hike. The trails are wide and there is plenty of people. I didn't get to hike so I ran.

Hiked it before Thanksgiving. Was a great hike and loved the falls. I highly recommend this trail

I hiked this for the first time and it was a nice hike! I ended up doing 8 miles because I took a few wrong turns

best trail run ever!

Solid well maintained path in a residential community. Parts are for walking only, lots of signs whereas other areas trail running is ok.

Nice round top view of the surrounding area, even though it was a little hazy.

Easy flat hike on dirt road surrounded by tall trees and lots of shades at the beginning of the hike.

Really stunning trail that follows the creek up the canyon. Wonderful view points as it curves up the head of the canyon. Great picnic spot on the smooth water washed rocks at the midpoint of the falls at the top. Easy hike. Walking poles nice to have at the top.

Why a 5 rating? It's personal. I need to get in shape for a backpacking trip I plan to do in the near future. This trail serves almost all my needs, save for the 9000 feet elevation, and it's a mile from my house. Switchbacks, Elevation gain, Gorgeous views, it's all here. What is surprising to me is that I might not have discovered it were it not for the Alltrails app. BTW i'm 70 and a half. Old guys rule!

Beautiful

Fairly easy trail (if you're good on distance) and enjoyable hike with stunning destination. For those who wish to be more challenged, plenty of opportunities to navigate up the falls (though use caution, particularly when wet), while the rest of your party relaxes down below.

This trail is one of my favorite go to spots to think while walking. Great people and easy to make new friends along the way.

This trail has a variety of interesting vistas and interweaves along the creek bed, which when water levels are on the higher side, creates some fun little creek crossings. The pay off on this hike comes when you reach 7 falls (provided there is water at the falls). The falls are not visually impressive, but make a very chill setting. This is a great hike for hikers of a range of skill levels.

Cute trail through neighborhood.
100% incline @ all times!!

Dogs not allowed on this trail.

I hiked this trail with my husband back in January when I was 38 weeks pregnant (my ambitious idea, not his) and loved it! It was a rewarding challenge with incredible views the entire way. The falls were dry at that time of the year, but it was still well worth it to get to the end. Lots of people were out, but everyone we passed was very encouraging along the way.

The first 2 miles are on hard pack dirt or paved road from the parking lot. The shuttle service was no longer running. The scenery the entire route is beautiful. I hit a dry season so the creek crossings were easy and dry. I can see more difficulty when water is flowing and would bring water shoes or prepare for soggy feet. The difficult part the trail is about a mile from the falls but it’s not super hard. I did find the trail relatively poorly marked given the 7 creek crossings. Because there are side trails by the crossings, pay attention to picking up the trail on the other side. Basically you are following the creek into the canyon so you cannot get lost but can end up searching a bit for the trail. The falls were almost nonexistent but there were pools of water and it didn’t take much to envision how spectacular it would be in the wet season.

Well maintained trail. Leaving by 8am is great advice. My wife and I were fine with 2 L of water but it wasn't a hot day. Strangely enough, one of the creeks was bone dry on the way up but running pretty good 3 hours later when we go back to it. We ended up using the road from that point on.

Love this trail.

probably one of the more decent trails in the area. The falls area is worth a look if you can back in there.

The trail at some of the dry river bed crossings aren't marked so keep your eyes peeled or you might end up scrambling up or down the river bed for a while before you realize you aren't in the trail.

hermoso lugar para tener un buen tiempo con la familia y amigos mientras caminas

This is a solid 4.4 mile hike (8.8mi out and back) starting with a mild 1.4mi flat / paved surface climb. The remaining 3 miles is mostly a gradual 1,000ft climb with mixed rocky, sandy, and step up & down path. Took us about 2hrs with few breaks. The trail ends at the falls which cannot be seen until the last few hundred feet of the trail.

Signage along the path is confusing and limited. It is easy to get off the trail. You will cross the Bear Creek like 3-4 times which also makes it easy to lose the trail. It is heavily trafficked so adjusting should not be difficult. Cellular signal was available throughout the trail.

The falls were dry when we arrived. The water was pretty murky. Beyond that, this is a moderate trail with beautiful scenery. Well worth the trip!

Head out on the trail before 8 am and you will have a nice amount of coverage from the sun one the way to 7 falls. Water felt great and even though it wasn’t running, the upper pool was a very nice place to take a dip and cool off. The hike back will offer little protection from the sun so make sure to re-apply sun screen after swimming and save a majority of your water for the hike back.
