We got "lost" and made a right hand turn somewhere (you can see where A LOT of people have made thar mistake on the AllTrails map) and ended up climbing over tons of rocks and poison ivy. So I guess download the trail map and dont make the same mistake as me.

Decent short hike!

Love this trail. Seems more on the moderate side. The only challenge is the last .7 of the trail, but it is fun. Also, there is a lot of uphill on the way back...way more than you realize. Good idea to take pics of the trail crossings...could get lost w/o them.

This is a great campground to have smack dab in the middle of nowhere. It was a great experience and there is a ton of adventure to be had.

Love this place. Very quiet and peaceful...no one in sight! Beautiful! No water and didn’t find the falls this time, but will be back to explore. Fairly easy...slightly moderate on way back.

Must have permit to park and do not use Apple maps.

Nice trail, but do it early.

I liked this trail. It was a decent elevation shift but smooth trail. there are longer routes and you can connect with the falls trail to extend your hike distance.

Really basic hike. Because it's so basic, there can tend to be a lot of people on the trail. there are longer, quieter options that end up at the falls, just stop at one of the alternate points before the main lot for the falls trail.

this was awesome ! went on Wed afternoon. I ran pretty much the whole way. real trail to run on. highly recommend it.

The entrance to the trail is located on the same side as the candy store just a few yards west of the candy store. Although this trail is not technically difficult it is a long trail that steadily climbs which is more difficult in the heat. Beautiful views Some shade in the first half the hike. Found very few places to sit and take a break along the way. Personally I would recommend this hike in cooler weather 90 degrees was a little to hot for me.

Would rate this more as moderate- there's nothing that is technically challenging if you're in decent shape. Not heavily trafficked. Pretty steady climb, the only "steep" part would be at the very end to get to the peak. Lots of places to stop and enjoy the view along the way. Some shaded areas in the middle of the trail, but mostly exposed. The view is stunning!

Beautiful trail. Water wasn't running hard down the falls but it is definitely a must see.. lots of blue bellies, huge tad poles, and a salamander swimming in one of the pools in the fall.. Amazing views at the top! We will be back!

A large part is rocky and slippery

All up hill to get to the falls but great views at the top. Bring extra socks Incase you slip in the pools. I know I have.

Lots of lizards and poison oak throughout the trail. We saw a rattle snake after 4 corners half way up to the peak

I would wear more sturdy shoes as the rocks were taxing AND the trail was beautiful. provided for a great work out! sooo quiet for the most part. would have liked more written on trail markers than"stay on trail".

It's part of the Sitton Peak/Bear Canyon Trail for the first mile then you cut off on Morgan Trail and then cut off on Tenaja Falls trail. Not the most scenic and I'm not fond of going up and down and up and down. I prefer doing all the work going up to a peak. No real peak here.

Beautiful hike with great views as a reward at the peak. Bring lots of water on hot days.

This trail took us just under 2 hours to get to the top (taking the longer route at the 2nd junction) The first 4.5 miles are pretty easy- it’s the last half mile that’s a scramble through the bush. View was beautiful and definitely worth spending some time.

Good quick trail !

Hike was short but nice! The only thing is the road to get there is VERRYY NARROW so be cautious and go slow. You have to cross a river not even knees deep to get to the trail that leads to the waterfall. Our pup took a nap when we got there and the hike back was easy.

Super fun hike, way there is cake but the way back can be a little more strenuous in my opinion. Not too difficult though, a lot to explore.

Went with my dog and a buddy. Fairly easy hike until the last stretch. Not crowded at all

Great local hike. Good for older children, strollers would not work on the trail back to the falls. There was some water flowing which is really fun to see, watch out for slippery rocks though! Two of my kiddos slipped on rocks and got soaked, but they didn’t mind. Found some broken glass on the trail so watch your step and PLEASE pack out whatever you bring in!

Super easy family friendly hike. The narrow 5 mile road that you take there takes longer than the actual hike. A little bit of water at the falls now. The rocks up there are super slippery so watch your lils! Fun river area to explore as well. The bits of graffiti and trash we saw were a bummer! Oh, and lots of poison oak right now!

Awesome hike! Beautiful trail and scenery from the parking lot (signs said parking pass required, but luckily we didn't get cited) down the Tenaja Trail. Trail was easy to follow & well maintained. We decided to do the loop, but after you cross the creek and start heading up the other side, you eventually get to a paved road for several miles back to the parking lot. It's pretty steep and not very interesting. If we did it again we'd definitely just go out & back on the same trail. Highly recommended!

Great hike. Hiked it this morning.
