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.

This hike is really awesome. Unfortunately we went in November so there wasn't actual water in the waterfalls, but it was still a very fun hike and mostly in the shade.

Very quiet hike. Only saw two other people the entire time we were there. Mostly fully covered by big trees, so would be easy even in full sun, not like most socal hikes that are in direct sun. Waterfall was more like a trickle.

Ran into a fully grown deer at the fall sight, though. AWESOME

Waterfall is just a trickle this time of year. Go after a rain or in the spring

Great trail to hike, don’t like the parking! The parking lot is very small, gotta park in the street unless you get there early!
