PARKING: Free parking in the neighborhood the hike is in - just mind yourself and be respectful. I wouldn't want to hear people yelling in the early morning. TRAIL HEAD: Its a little hard to locate the entrance but once you see the huge sign, its going to be to the left of it. It goes up and along side the cement drainage. Once you're on your way, the trail is not too hard to follow, you'll eventually want to keep right and straight forward to get to the graffiti rock formations and the waterfall. Its a very short hike to get there so if you've been wandering around for more than hour - I would start shooting signal flare cause you're probably lost. Honestly, just follow the graffiti all along the side on random rocks and junk. When you're at the destination, you can either take the path on the right which takes you to a cliff that overlooks the waterfall and across from you, the rock wall that has a ton of graffiti on it. OR You can take the path to the left which takes you to the waterfall.

First bit is a little tricky but a relatively easy trail after that. Please remember to pack out your trash...It's nasty, bad for the animals & can start fires.

Took my pup on this hike with me to do a little bit more exploring! The entrance was kind of tricky to find like it states in other reviews, but if walk towards left of the sign, follow the cement drainage UPHILL. It’s a bit steep but nothing too bad. The hike was fairly easy and short in my opinion. Lots of wide open areas and rocks to climb for my pup!

Warning do not bring your dog here if they don’t like climbing or rocks.

This hike was pretty cool! I grew up being influenced by hip hop in many aspects of my life: music, fashion, art, etc - so it was interesting to find something like this.

Once you've taken the perfect instagram photo, make your way back the way you came. Overall, a short but very cool hike. Its different. A change of all the green and brown you typically see on hikes. But I agree that there are lots of trash laying around.

This place is one of the last of its kind. Meaning, you have total freedom to come and do as you please anytime day or night without hassle. Unlimited space to paint in peace.

And it would appear that too many people are taking it for granted. Why litter everywhere? A part of the hill was caught fire recently. When I was a teen there was a dozen, atleast half a dozen spots like it and I enjoyed every party, hike, date I went on at those spots. Respected the land and did my part to clean up after myself. Now there’s maybe a couple spots and it’s because there’s no respect.

This is your city! Have pride in it! Cherish these spots. Preserve it so you can take your kids here one day and tell them about the shit you did here. Leave them something to also cherish. Respect people. Pride. This is our city.

Loved it! Couldn’t find the entrance at first, but it’s in front and to the left of the big neighborhood sign along the cement drainage ditch. (NOT behind the sign) Follow the ditch up the hill and it’ll take you to the trail.

It was hard to find at first but turns out you just had to go up a steep slope behind the hills reserve sign. But other than that. It was perfect for pictures. Loved it.

It was very warm because your in the sun for quite a bit. The trail was hard to find but it was simple. At points you were close to a slope and the dirt was slippery. Don't trust the rocks because they were either loose or very slippery from being so smooth. It was pretty to see and just unique. I had no problems with pot heads or snakes like some of the reviews said. There was nobody there and I went on a Saturday.

We started from the Lake Hills Reserve sign, it starts out with a really steep incline. The middle part of the trail is kinda easy, a little overgrown but not too bad, still made it through with shorts on. The closer you get to the waterfall it then becomes narrow, steep, and a little technical with some loose dirt here and there. The waterfall and a small creek both had running water. Awesome pictures for you to show off to your social media fans, friends, and family.

Good hike but some areas you need good hiking shoes as the trails are deteriorating and recommend pants due to over growth of trails. When you get past the concrete wash and go to the bottom of the hill, the falls are to the right and there are many graffiti rocks along the way to guide you. Worth the hike! Take plenty of water.

I just went there recently unfortunately there was no falls active and there was so much trash. I tried to clean up as much as possible it's unfortunate that such a hidden unique place and enjoyable hike has to get ruin or isn't maintain.

Quick Short hike with the kids. Some steep hills and slopes that you have to make sure your little ones stay close and don't fall down. Unfortunately there was a lot of trash everywhere. I guess that is what you get for a trail that attracts younger teenagers. No respect for nature or the environment. I brought a 3 gallon trash bag and filled it half way with trash. Plenty more trash to be picked up.
