Los Padres National Forest is a United States national forest in southern and central California. Administered by the United States Forest Service, Los Padres includes most of the mountainous land along the California coast from Ventura to Monterey, extending inland. Elevations range from sea level to 8,800 feet. Many threatened and endangered species live within the forest. Probably the most famous among them is the California condor (Gymnogyps californianus), for whom the United States Forest Service established the Sespe Condor Sanctuary.

If you follow the new trail the poison oak is avoidable. Didn't see a single snake. Lots of bugs. Water is GREAT! PICK UP YOUR TRASH!

I would not recommend doing the whole hike with young kids. Hike to the pools and swim and then hike back. I also don't think this hike should be rate as easy. Very pretty though.

Cool easy trail to the falls nothing major but you can climb to the top of the falls and see an even bigger waterfall ( when conditions are right). This is sketchy but fun and exciting if your into that sort of thing

great hike. sweeping views.

Easy trek to the lower view point of the falls. Easy to find and clearly marked. You can keep climbing to make it more challenging. Rocky and slippery, but very green and pretty.
