Cleveland National Forest encompasses 460,000 acres, mostly of chaparral, with a few riparian areas. A warm dry mediterranean climate prevails over the Forest. It is the Southernmost National Forest in California.

Two thumbs up

As a hiker from the PNW I was very pleased. Not your average Southern California hike. Great day spent out on the trail. I will be back!

Bring your bug repellant spray and don't try to drive to the trail head unless you have a 4x4. The Trail itself is nice and the views are rewarding. It gets mighty hot in late spring!

This place is beautiful and it definitely worth the drive from where ever you come from. The few times I have been the waterfall has been raging and it's the 2nd week in May. May not be bigger until next year. This hike was hard and challenging and requires at times your Ultimate concentration in some spots especially if you want to get to the top of the falls. Super fun and it can get real hot if you go in the late afternoon as the times I went where relatively early so it wasn't too hot. Do not forget to bring your water packs. Have fun

Hiked here early in the morning around 8am for the first time. The hike going down is not too bad, but going up can be quit tuff. Bring enough water & snacks. Not recommended for kids & pets. Enjoyed every bit of this day trip!

FYI- hiking shoes required
