Been waiting years to do this hike. On hikespeak . com a commenter mentions you can circumnavigate the mine (mentions it is very steep). Has anyone done this? Going to try and find the trail soon.

I don’t believe the damage was that serious I’ve been hiking this trail for over 16 years,n I did the trail before Vulcan cooperated to let us in through their job site area /it’s all baloney The company just moved their equipment all over that mountain n the city of course won’t do nothing because the city makes no money with us m with Vulcan it gets serious dollar..come on people complain n make ur voices heard n if we have to let’s go fix the trail ourselves

Bobcat Fire burned through this area again. Likely going to be a long time, if this ever does reopen.

This trail is still closed BS. Than need to rebuild and reopen this trail. It’s been over two years already.

I loved this trail .. too bad the fires ruined it . The waterfall must be really beautiful this year, since when I went we were in a drought.

Such a great hike to beautiful falls. Too bad it was so damaged by 2016 fire and subsequent heavy rain. I hope the city will repair it at some point, but I am doubtful because if the severity of the damage.

I love this trail , also one of the best I’ve hiked in So Ca.. Very beautiful with so much vegetation. The creeks during the rain or right after is the best. It plays a great part for a more marvelously flowing waterfalls. Four tiers of it makes it magnificent.Watch out for cactuses though they’re everywhere. Trails are a bit narrow if you’re afraid of heights or falling stick to your left at all times. Parking is free! But unfortunately this trail has been CLOSED for nearly two years to be exact. I am totally waiting for it to reopen.

We hiked this the day after the trail reopened. The trail was poorly maintained, and there was no water in the falls.

The trail head is a little hard to find and not well kept when u start out. The beginning of the trail is the greatest elevation gain and will kick your butt if your not used to hiking, make sure and save some energy for going up it on the way back! The trail was cool, a little boring but did have a nice waterfall at the end. The one downside to the trail was the ticks, I had about 3 or 4 on me about half way through.

The trail has been consumed by the San Gabriel Complex fire (all of it).. No report yet as to when it will re-open, but it will be months if not years. This is truly devastating

It really is an intermediate hike. It takes me about 45 mins nonstop to the end and 30 mins for return (faster if I jogged). I would take an elevation mask for a more intense hike. The waterfall is nice treat when you make it to the end, though only runs during wet season.

Hopefully this trail will not close because of the fire. If someone could provide an update.
