This is a short and easy hike to a waterfall. It is a good place for a family to go with the kids. The waterfall is best after rain during the winter and early spring. Parking can be tricky though so try and get there early or go mid-week.

save yourself the time & don't do this trail as there is no water seen running through here. extreme disappointment & I'll consider giving this an updated review if I decide to check this place out during a different season.

Not enough water this time of the year. A very short and easy one. The waterfall doesn't have much water. Won't do it again. However the neighborhood is a very relaxing and pretty one definitely envy people who live here.

Question ; we want to hike this Saturday 3/18 is there a spot to meet friends and hike from there ? So we don't have problems with parking ?

No notice on the map board, but the trail is closed about halfway to the waterfall due to storm damage. Very disappointing but playing along the river was nice. Got some great pics.
