So many options for little side trails off the main one. If you’re going with small kids it’s probably best to stay on the main trail, some of the trails have a lot of cacti. Overall very pretty and relaxing!

I would definitely come back and visit this park if I was looking for an easy hike in beautiful trees. It had very cute bridges, creeks and nice views. You can see a lot in 1 1/2 miles or go longer as there were many trails branching off. Shade for summer too!

I did this hike today Jan 19, 2 days after 3 straight days of LA rain. the trail is open and unobstructed. just like all the other reviews...it is steep, but worth it. poles definitely helpful.

It was beautiful but now it’s noisy and trashy! Put earbuds on... not everyone wants to hear ur crappy music!! The sounds of nature are so much better than whatever ur blasting from ur phone. Please take ur trash with u when u leave!!!

Best hike I’ve done period. Great tree coverage throughout most areas - more foot traffic near bottom but once you get up and out there’s barely anyone. Note that there are some complications with the trail which can make it challenging for some people. I recall one section being pretty narrow to walk on and had to be very careful walking that section with my dog since it was a drop off to the side. Also a tree fell over the trail at one section so you have to climb over the trunk. beautiful peak at the top!

Fairly easy hike, was able to do this with my 4 year old daughter and wife no problem. Tons of folks out there on Sunday 1/13/19. not a quiet hike, but enough space on the trail for everyone. Hardest parts are just crossing streams here and there on the way to and from the waterfall, very doable for all ages and dogs are allowed too !

Beautiful area! The Center wasn’t open on the day we went but there were maps.

This trail can be done in two days if you take the early ferry into Avalon and the mid day or late ferry out of Two Harbors. I did it January 11-12. Despite the mild temps, it seems to be in the off peak season. Lots of great scenery, elevation changes, and harbor views. However there are more power lines, fairly significant erosion, and other man-made changes that would otherwise result in a 5 star rating.

Check out the Wrigley Botanical Garden before starting from Avalon. it will help you identify some of the plants you see along the way.

great hike, VERY crowded. went on a thursday, a less busier day but still saw a lot of people on the trail. parking wasn’t difficult, they have a lot as well as an overflow lot. half of the hike is relatively easy on a paved road. take a left when you come across both forks. the second half of the hike (after you get under the bridge) get significantly prettier and shadier. you cross the stream a few times before the waterfall. the water flow was good. too much graffiti but honestly not a lot of trash. makes a great skill level for beginners.

Used to love these trails. Found this one recently but I’ve hiked Black Star and all throughout the canyon. Amount of houses that are being built are without a doubt takes the joy out of the hike all together. Trying to get one peace when I hike, no see houses and people. They also started planting their own trees and plants on the outside of the canyon so, extra took over by the suburbs.

This year resolution is to walk an hour every day for this calendar year. I downloaded the All Trails App and since I drive for www.cheaperthanadui.net, I end up in different places, I can search for different trail spots. I researched this location and seem perfect for an hour walk. There's lots of trees and different paths to take. It's between a neighborhood and its a great walk. Lots of people doing the trail. I was able to only walk half the road but I think it was a nice walk. I highly recommend it if you want to have a quiet time.

Perfect for a Sunday afternoon afyer a winter rain, and would be even more lovely on a quieter day during the week. just the right amount of stream and boulder hopping for a fitst day back after the holidays.

Great trail for the family

I love this trail, biking or walking my dog.

Done and fun! Great socal hike. Desert mountains overlooking the ocean. Good climb too.

Cute little waterfall at the end of the hike. Pretty easy terrain to hike on, especially with a dog.

Relatively easy, but pretty long. There are lots of nice spots along the trail. Especially near the river. Free parking but it is very limited. Dogs can be on the trail but the juerros complain if you let them off, no matter how well trained/behaved your dog is.

A great way to start the new year

Great trail to take with kids, especially for a first time hike. It’s pretty heavily trafficked, so you may be annoyed if you like quiet hikes.

This was my First Hike Ever! Absolutely Gorgeous! Fell in Love with hiking to the point I decided to permanently moving to Washington. The path is spectacular with a variety of of stone paths and wooden stairs. Wooden bridge is a bit narrow only one direction of traffic at a time.

Breathe taking views, especially at the sunset, late December trail was messy and slippery

It’s very good app for hiking I love when I go to live a experience knowing the way and the beautiful panoramas

Nice walk with great overviews.

I’m a rookie at trails and enjoyed this.

My 4th time and finally found the falls...

Really tough terrain, it's fun boulder hopping but not for a beginner.

It's about 8.9 miles from the parking lot due to zig zagging across the water.

Very cool Aquatic life in riparian section.

Nice trail with beautiful sweeping views of the pacific!

Great place for a short walk through the wilderness, If you stay on the trail you won't have to much fun. several breaks in the trail were you can venture off and get "lost". Before it was antonovich it was just walnut creek and was the easiest way to cut through san dimas into Via Verde.

We had fun did a little over 4 miles round trip. Got pretty close to the falls but became tough for my wife at 30 weeks pregnant.
