Waterfall Hiked Easy Map

The road to the campgrounds is closed due to the government shutdown, which made the hike longer and harder. But it was worth it. Once you hit the trail, the fun begins. We had an 8 year old boy and 6 yr old girl with us and they made it easily. You have to cross the creek a few times to get to the waterfall so expect to get a little wet. Dogs are allowed on this trail and we came across a number of people who let their dogs go leash-free...so be aware. I would definitely go back again. There is a bathroom at the campgrounds so plan accordingly. Bring some water because there weren’t any water fountains that we saw.

Beautiful day yesterday. The rivers are flowing and the waterfall looks full. It is a bit harder to navigate through the river with so much water, but it was definitely a fun adventure. Recommend going soon! Have never seen it with so much water. And it is greener than it has been in a while. Thank you rain

The trail was awesome but a little crowded. Lots of dogs too but all were behaved. Water is flowing nicely after all the rain we just had. You will need to park in the upper parking lot and hike down. The trails are maintained well and was very nice. I’ll go back again soon.

We have always loved this hike. Great from kids and pets

Heavy traffic! Long hike down hill. Nice view , lots of water in the creek. You need hiking stick especially crossing the creek back and forth..

Due to government shutdown you have to park down the hill by the nursery. This adds 2 miles to the hike. Right now because of the heavy rain last week the water is really flowing and so beautiful! There are many stream crossings to get to the waterfall so be ready to get your feet and lower legs wet. We hiked with our dogs and children and it was a great time! Very beautiful hike and i highly recommend going soon to see this volume of water.

I've been using AllTrails for years and I have never seen a review like Emmanuel Paraskiv's. It appears that he made poor decisions, but that doesn't mean the trail deserves one star. He also refers to himself as an "avid hiker," which I have a hard time believing.

Great waterfall hike!! Easy 1 mile to Falls from camp ground. If u park in upper lot & take trail down it’s an extra 1.5 miles RT. Also lots of shade. Has options to add more miles on upper trailhead. Sunset Ridge can go on for miles...

Love this hike!! Beautiful views of the mountains & lots of shade on the lower canyons. If u go in the fall the colors are amazing ❤️

It was a pretty walk along a creek. I wish it was a little better marked as we hit a few forks in the trail and I didn’t know which way to go or how much farther. I wish we would have hiked on higher grounds with views.

Beautiful.. now one of my favorite hikes! Great variety of views and inclines. Love the stream passing through and the views at the top right before you head down to the falls. We started early to avoid crowds and boy it was worth it, we had the falls to ourselves for a good 20-25 min!Took about 2.5 round trip. Highly recommend this hike!

Nothing to write home about but nice for an afternoon

One of my favorite trails in LA. Has a mix of everything green canopy with shade in areas, stream crossing, some include to pretty views with more a more arid climate and then ends at a small waterfall.

Nice easy trail with a few moderately steep climbs. Lots of green at the moment! It was overgrown in some areas and you have to cross a tiny stream quite a bit but it wasn’t a big deal. Not much water and the trail just kind of comes to an end where the waterfall is supposed to be. Found some cool ruins of a fireplace along the way too.

The trail is closed :(. Due to fire damage!

It’s was great, I was really cold though. I mean it’s winter. To the guy below. I really want to see proof.

it was fun!!

Beautiful path that offers variety of scenery! This one will become a regular hike!

my wife and I did this with our infant and dog. the road was closed so we parked by the nursery at the bottom of the hill and made a nice 5 mile round trip. once you get to the camp site it's only half a mile to a really beautiful little spot. don't forget to be prepared to carry out your trash, there are only trash cans by the camp site!

Great hike overall. Some inclines and downhills but nothing to step and unmanageable. I haven’t hiked in awhile and it was more on the moderate then easy side in that sense but for an avid hiker should be a breeze. Once you get to the streams half a mile before the waterfall it gets pretty shady but also fun navigating the trail. I’d definitely go back again!

Beautiful hike with a lot of shade from trees. Similar to Eaton Canyon but with a smaller space to hang out at the ending waterfall. Great for kids!

Nice and easy with some really good views. Parking is kinda limited, so thankfully it wasn't too crowded on this Thursday morning in December. Trail was easy enough to follow. Lots of unleashed dogs. It's fun to think about what this place looked like in its heyday (https://www.kcet.org/shows/departures/peering-into-the-chasm-vanished-canyon-resorts-of-la)

Waterfall looked nice. Not crowded.

The gate to the road that leads to the campsite was closed, so I parked right outside of it. I hiked up and started through the Chaney trail. The trail was not packed at all, considering it was a Thursday. The hike was short, nice and easy hike, I would definitely go again!

This is by far my favorite hiking trails. Def a hidden gem! It’s hardly ever crowded. It’s a beautiful trail w/ lots of shade. There are crossings so get ready for the possibility of wet shoes. Fairly easy trail. You do need a parking pass. Leads to a waterfall.

Started this one around 8am on a brisk December morning. Not as packed as we thought it would be. Nice & easy most of the way, but you'll get a nice little workout scrambling back up the little bit of elevation that you have to take to get to the falls. Nice bit of water flowing a few weeks to a month or so after heavy rains. Didn't start to get more crowded until we were on our way back out. Lots of unleashed dogs.

fun & easy, brought my 5 month old pup and my friend brought her daughter. saw a lot of families with 4+ year old kids, so the hike is generally easy. the stream is very pretty. you do have to cross it a few times to stay on trail. there is a great water flow at the falls at the end right now. so pretty!

Sweet place to relax next to the fall

Most of the route are with shades. A easy/moderate. The path going down to the fall is a little narrow without fences. So be aware of it.
