It's 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.

I’ve been to numerous of trails and this one was just ok. Definitely not kid friendly. My son kept sliding. If you want to avoid hiking, you may keep driving to top of the hill and go through the gate to go down the stairs instead.

It’s gated up

Easy trail. Graffiti is fun and it guides you for most of the trail. We went in mid-May when the temp was only 74 but I could see this getting hot.

Hard hike due to the rocks. Take a walking stick. I did have a bad slip over some rocks and gravel. I did find the water fall.

Total surprise water fall right in the residential area of Corona, CA. Short hike with about 200-ft elevation gain. Bring a trash bags to help take down discarded cans of spray paints.

Went to go hiking today and there was a brand new fence around opening to trail. Does anyone know of a different way to get to the trail?

A nice short hike with a twist. Graffiti usually takes away from the natural scenery but in his home the graffiti makes it unique.

It was nice walk had a split on the trail that you should take the left going down the one going up dies out and you will have to come back down other wise you will have great time kids and dog friendly few river passings and a bit of edge rock climbing but nothing heavy

By the way if you drive all around the road it will take you to a stair case with fence that is also a entrance to the back side of trail

I did a YouTube video on this trail copy and paste
Enjoy for reference and want to get a quick glance of trail thanks again see you in the trails !!

I tried the public entry way on Skyridge and Crescent, you have to cross a tiny stream and it is a rather inefficient as you go down the stairway only to climb back up. It is better to just walk along the white fence on Crescent and jump over when you see a trail.

Really lovely short hike. The trailhead is a bit difficult to find... Need to follow the cement drainage up. Nice elevation variance. You can see the graffiti early on. It's pretty cool once you get close. I saw some people picnicking on the rocks. Great idea.

uts hidden, it's private, it's short so its perfect for a quick short walk. not much for a usual hiker. but its rewarding to rest at the water fall area. good for a light walk and Instagram pic.

The old entrance which alltrails lists, is blocked by a fence and is along private property beginning in 3327. Please be respectful and be quiet when going along any of the ways to the falls.
The "new" entrance, not on public property south-west of the old entrance. On the south side of the street.
Look for the Lake Hills Reserve sign and follow the concrete drainage going east towards the falls over the hill. Once you get past the hill, you are on another private property owned by a different owner who bought it in 2007. This owner does not have any no trespassing signs up currently from what I saw.

The other "legal" (public property) entrance is going a way I have not tested. You must go to the falls from behind. To get there, continue down Skyridge dr to where it intersects with Crescent Glen Ct. You will see a small concrete wall with gated stairs leading down. All of that hillside down to the falls, is public property. All the way down to where there was the old river passing.

The falls are getting a bit dirty, it would be great if other people help clean the falls by bringing a bag of trash out with them. I think how dirty it is getting is wanting people to make it more difficult to access.

Haven’t been there yet it’s on my list ...so when I go I’m taking pair of gloves and a trash bag and walking out with a lil less trash on the trail . Let’s see how many people we can get to help clean up our trails! #cleanupgrafettirock

I went for the first time today as well and found the area around the trail has been fenced off, however after leaving I took a closer look at the map and I think I know how to get to the trail now. Lincoln St. turns into Skyridge Dr., continue up to Crescent Glen Ct. and near the corner of these two streets there is what looks like stairs that lead into the dirt trail. Im going back tomorrow to verify what Im seeing is correct. Hope it is because this looks like a very cool spot. Good luck and safe traveling :)

So I was just in this area today, went up to the other set of graffiti rocks just a further bit up the hill. I believe the entrance to 15343 is now fenced off...I'm almost positive this was the spot. Can anybody confirm?...if so is there another way up?...I've never been up to graffiti falls and kind of bummed if its no longer accessible. Please advise if I was right and its now fenced off.

This trail is hidden behind the homes. Once you arrive where Lincoln and sky ridge streets unite, park , and walk along the hillside. Take the concrete run off drainage that has graffiti on it(f@$& trump). The drainage is located in front of the neighborhood sign. You will see foot steps along the way indicating you are on the right path. When you get over the hill look straight and you will see graffiti waterfall, follow the arrows along the way. The arrows are spray painted along the path route. There was no trash, minimal to very light pieces of glass, but overall a clean trail. There are some rocks you have to go over. It’s a dirt trial, some over growth, but clearly you can go through the trail. I’d rate this a G; for its easiness but definitely a good workout. This is good for families with kids 8+; due to the rocks and some of the footing. Enjoy!

You have to walk up a drainage chute to actually get to the trailhead.

I was expecting this to be artsy or expressive graffiti, but there were a lot of derogatory "F*** you" and "You are g**" tags sprayed over some of the better pieces. In addition to that, there were hundreds of disgusting smashed beer bottles littered all over the place. So much that you cannot avoid crunching glass underneath your feet while walking.

Cool experience

came here specifically because it wad suppose to be dog friendly. IT IS NOT. there's alot of glass on the trail and it gets tricky. if you want to bring your dog i recommend a small one that way its easy for you to pick him up during some trail spots.

Once you find it, this is a cool little hike especially after the rain.

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.

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 an take the path to the left which takes you to the waterfall.

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.
