Nice hike, especially with all the rain we had this winter. Trail gets very exposed for middle 4.5 miles.

Very exposed trail, but Henninger Flat has nice tree coverage. No water was available when we reached the Flat.

this is an increase in altitude of approximately 1300 ft not too much shade on the way up but a good intermediate hike on a fire Road

This is a good, moderate trail to take if you don't mind a lot of sun exposure and some sporadic mountain bikes whizzing past you. We went on 11/10/8 and it wasn't too busy, just families and a trash clean-up crew. The trail is pretty wide and well maintained and there are a few scattered benches with nice views. Overall, this is a good option for a quick hike away from the city and away from the normal crowds at the Eaton Canyon Waterfall and Nature Center. Bring water and a snack!

mid September hike. I see now why you are advised to start early AM for this hike. we started at 9AM and it got pretty hot on our hike, and was partially sun with some shade going up, but coming down (1PM) was a scorcher, with minimal to no shade. Bring lots of water, as there is none at the sites. overall, a great view of the LA Basin and if not smoggy, beyond, even to Catalina. overall, it was fun.

An easy scenic kid and dog-friendly — but crowded — 3.84 mile mike to one of Los Angeles County’s most popular waterfalls. (Date hiked: May 29, 2010.) Read the full write-up at: http://www.greeneadventures.com/2011/02/21/eaton-canyon-falls-easy-and-crowded-but-well-worth-hiking/
