    I was a little disappointed by this place. The hike was beyond easy, its a beautiful place, the views were stunning, very little trash or graffiti, and there were many places to explore, but the amount of dumbassery just made me cringe. I've never seen so many (what im assuming to be, fairly inexperienced) people attempt to climb up the side of a waterfall on a terrible, washed out trail. I got hit in the head several times by loose rock, people were crawling on the ground practically crying at the top and blocking the trail (why would you go if you can't take the height), and people just being all around careless everywhere. There is an awesome view at the top, but it's identical to the one you see walking on the paved street to go to the trailhead, sans a canyon and a couple of trees. Honestly, don't be stupid. Plus, there was barely any water (which is no big deal), but maybe it would've initiated some sort of halo affect on the whole trip. Hopefully the next times better.

    Trail was awesome! The weather was perfect when we went and very few people were on the trail. We went up a large portion of Bear Canyon trail prior to going to the waterfalls and swam in some of the (cleaner looking) swimming holes. When we got to the lower falls, there was a rather large group sitting at the bottom, so we took advantage of the opportunity and visited the upper falls. The water was cold, but not intolerable. The upper falls were beautiful, but what makes it great is the wonderful little grotto its set in (because, honestly, if you look at pictures of the waterfall up close, it bears a striking resemblance to many other socal waterfalls). We lingered for a little and headed back down. I can see it being amazing in the warmer months! We splashed around in the lower falls for a little then headed back up. I was pleasantly surprised on how little graffiti and trash were here. It was definitely a nice break from the usual socal hike. On our way back, we stopped at the old camp area for one more viewing. The hike out was just as beautiful as on the way in. The diverse plant life in this area, makes for an ever-changing hike. All in all, I believe we spent a little over 4 hours just messing around. Will definitely be back. Make sure to bring enough water, a snack and bug spray, if those tiny little things annoy you. This is a great beginner trail, but remember, however far you go, you still have to turn around and go back up that hill haha.

    I work a couple exits from this place and have been looking forward to checking it out for awhile. With decent rains yesterday, a short day at work, and some friends available to go with me, we set off! The hike on the bike trail felt like it went on forever (even more so on the way out), but we got to see some awesome machinery the men below were using. Once on the path SOMEONE READ THE MAP WRONG, and we ended up going 1/5 of the way on the Coal Canyon trail. We made a fun exercise out of it though and jogged the whole way down. Once on the right (Big Mo) trail, the directions seemed to make more sense, and we were there in no time. This place is gorgeous, but there was very little water. It was still a breathtaking surprising. The grotto was stunning. The weather was perfect with a nice, cool breeze, and the views were out of this world! We could see the mountains in the distance, smothered in snow. Definitely plan on checking this place out more often, and hopefully have more time before the sunsets to explore!
