Take I - 10 freeway west to the PCH. Head towards Malibu and make a right turn onto Winding Way. Park in the lot and follow the trail signs.

The hike up the road to the trail entrance is as long as the offload part.
Beautiful waterfall area at the end.

Easy and beautiful. The scramble to the third waterfall is definitely worth the effort. One of my favorite LA hikes and perfect for beginners.
