Do not attempt to hike this trail. This trail is on PRIVATE PROPERTY and is closed to the public. The entrance is gated and locked with signs that state NO TRESPASSING, VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED.

Watch out for snakes and loose gravel! Some parts of this trail are along steep cliffs so be extra careful!

The trailhead is between the two houses on 3327 and 3339 Lincoln Street, Riverside, CA. Walk along the South side of the brown fence until you reach the huge drainage ditch. DO NOT go down the drainage ditch to the other side, instead go down onto the boulders and veer a little right through the trees. This beginning part of the trail may be overgrown. Once past the tree the trail (on the west side of the creek) is easy to follow to the falls.

I highly recommend if you want to step into your own horror movie. What seemed like a pleasant and short hike with an aesthetic waterfall, turned into a mid-day haunted "house". We were greeted with flying oranges from the bushes via crackheads growling at us from the bushes. They proceeded to scream repeatedly "GET THE F*** OUT" in demonic voices. We couldn't see them, only their trash and tents, and once we heard the growling get closer and the rustling we ran for our lives further up the trail. Oh, and did I mention a homeless person was playing the flute mysteriously during this whole experience. 2 Stars.

Follow the cement drain wash up and once you can cross to the right side of it do so and follow the path. I followed the spray painted trees/bushes and found it no problem. The hike has no shade but once you're at the falls theres a cool fresh amazing breeze. It is true there is trash but wasn't as bad as i was expecting. i stayed at the base of the waterfall for a while watching the little tadpoles. Do go with caution. I'm not sure what happened but heard loud screaming commotion from some homeless people in the bushes. Not sure if they live there but the hike was still worth it

Follow the wash up and over the hill and stay to the right. Totally safe and appropriate for kids. Go early in the day as it does get hot and busy. Not as trashy as some other reviewers stated.

Very easy hike, easy enough for kids. Please remember if you do this hike everything you pack in pack it out. Watch out for poison ivy as well. Overall it’s a nice hike with some art at the end!

It’s trashy. Lots and lots of trash and homeless. This is not the place to go alone or with children. The rocks and “falls” are terribly ugly. Beer cans and bottles everywhere so beware of broken glass. Also, this is private property so know you’re trespassing and I’ve seen police called there because people are disrespectful of homeowner properties.

Please do not perpetuate the hiking of this trail. It is illegal to trespass on private property and it annoys those who live in this residential neighborhood.

Please don’t bother with this trail unless you’re okay with hiking around trash, broken bottles and used needles. I definitely wouldn’t take children to this area. It’s really nothing more than a gully with rain water run-off during rainy season to create the “falls”. Also, it is necessary to trespass through private residential property to access the trail, including very steep and dangerous grassy slopes known for rattle snakes! Several hikers get injured on the regular and require helicopter rescue.

The hike was so pretty but it is not for someone who is scared of heights. Some of the paths were very steep and small. However getting to the waterfall and seeing all the rocks was awesome. I would highly recommend it.

The trail itself is super easy. Hard to find, but rather unique when you get there. Try to go after a rainfall. The hardest part is the required scramble to get to the top of the opposite side of the falls from where you hike in- if you slip and fall you WILL get hurt. Just be confident you can scramble or climb.

It’s an easy trail. We took our 2 dogs, and our 16,13,10 year old boys. The hardest part is the very beginning when you walk along the drain ditch. It’s a little sandy but not bad at all. Follow the paths towards the graffiti. You can see the rocks right away when you get to the top of the drain ditch. It was easy and fun and the kids all enjoyed seeing the graffiti. Bring a trash bag and help pack out some the crap that people left behind.

The kids enjoyed it and there’s a nice breeze going through. But there is just something I can’t stand about tagging. There are a few better artistic expressions also, but even then... did they have to throw their empty cans and tops everywhere? It’s the LiFog place you’d go as a teen to smoke weed and drink. And it still smells of it now. Close to home though. I’d probably go back if the kids asked, but not my pick.

I absolutely love this hike, so much fun , so beautiful , all the flowers are coming and grass is still green, I love all the art on the plants and rocks , but if you’re going to make art make sure to pick up your cans after ! Don’t be that person. Keep the earth clean and our hikes that we enjoy so much. Nice little hike to the waterfall there are about 3 different off trails you can hike up to as well if you’re feeling adventurous. Wear tight shoes you can slip on some rocks or they might be wet. Bring water & snacks , there isn’t much shade until you reach the waterfall. But such a fun an enjoyable hike.

Great place to hike! Easy to navigate, no super difficult paths. AMAZING view! Trail head is a little hard to find and doesn’t really seem like an actual trail at first.

it's really hard to see where you're going at night but I only had my phone flashlight so it wasn't very bright

I'm not exactly sure if the way I got in was the official entrance but it's a bit of a steep climb up the side of the cement drain. The trail itself is very hard to walk on because it's slanted and you have to walk lopsided. There's lots of bees and gnats (and it's December!) it's a short but somewhat difficult trail and there's lots of rocks to potentially trip on so watch your step

the hike is easy but some shrubs are over grown dont expect a nice well maintained trail. the way there is pretty easy and once past the brush the graffiti starts with arrows pointing though the trail is exactly as it shows on all trails if you follow the map. the waterfall is a tiny thing this place is covered with graffiti and smells of fresh paint there was a group of 5 adding their own mark when I was there yesterday. it's nothing special seems like a place teenagers like to hangout and make their mark, literally. some of the artwork is pretty cool some looks like some idiot just wanted to "be cool" and spray some paint. very short took me like 30mins total. the sign for the community on the winding road is where the trail starts.

Alright my dudes. The entrance is confusing. Park on sky ridge road near the big Lake Hill Reserves sign. To the left of the sign (right next to a big yellow arrow sign) is a rain drain that you will see a small dirt path to the left of. THAT IS THE PATH!! Follow that basically all the way. Make your judgement on all the forks in the roads but I followed the path that basically kept going down. If you come to a tree that you either have to step over or go under, you’re headed in the right direction. It’s a quick easy walk. Some super rocky and slippery parts, but relatively easy. Bring some water if you go in the afternoon cause it’s extra hot! But waterfall was flowing and was nice and shady one I arrived at the rocks. Cool spot, enjoy!!

Very difficult to find trail. It’s following the water drain up. Just a man made trail but very sandy so be careful. Don’t recommend for little kids or animals. Tight spots and steep at times. We ended up just going into the trees/bushes at the bottom and found cool areas

I took my 2 dogs from the other side of sky ridge down the stairs and to the top of the falls . Unfortunately there is only a small creek going through so there isn’t like any water in the falls .

Directions don't lead you to a trail. Couldn't find a way in. Did see it from the top of the hill at a distance. Which is as close as we got to see it; was from the street it dropped us of at. Very dissapointed.
