    *Read on to hear about poison oak and bees!*

    The trailhead is easy to get to, and there a few different paths you can take from the parking lot. The path we took (recorded below) was an enjoyable walk with plenty of shade and some picnic areas. There's barely any incline and currently no creek whatsoever. We chose to take the specific path to the waterfall marked after about two miles into the hike. That path takes you to a dozen stairs or so. Soon after that, some poison oak is marked, probably to show those who aren't familiar with what it looks like what they should be keeping an eye out for. Not far after that, it wasn't the oak but the bees that became an issue. Before we could get to where the waterfall was, there were hundreds of bees swarming, so we turned back.

    The hike was nice, even in the 90+ degree weather, but it wasn't much of a workout and there's no water. I'd say it's good for a walk, listening to some birds, and having lunch with friends or family.

    This trail isn't as complicated as some reviews suggest. Once you turn onto Corral from PCH, it's a short distance to where you turn left to head to the trail head. You can park anyway along that path. We fortunately found parking. You can also park on Corral just outside the turnout a little further up the road. The trail has bathrooms after a real short distance. Then, you can follow my recorded path for the 6+ mile hike. You go a ways up for some beautiful views. We also saw a deer and plenty of lizards and birds (woodpeckers and some colored birds). We just missed a rattlesnake (whew) that some other hikers were talking about. In all, if you follow my recorded path below the reviews, you'll get a pretty solid workout. I'd say make sure you have 3 hours, though it could probably be done in 2 1/2 or even a little less.
