The first part of the trail follows Moonridge trail looking down upon Indian Creek. Trail then drops down steeply into an area if volcanic rock with a spectacular 70 foot waterfall plunging into a large pool. The return leg of the loop is an easy meandering trail along the banks of Indian creek, with a number of lovely picnic spots along the way. I promise that you will be surprised that there is such a nice setting amongst the suburban sprawl.

Fun but busy trails with two parking lots and a port-a-potty. Falls are ok for Ventura county but nothing too spectacular on a grander scale.

Easy hike. Begins flat then descends toward the waterfall. You could follow the stream to make it a longer walk. You have to jump over the stream a few times. It leads to campground with bathrooms. Lots of trees and shade below near the stream. Good climb toward lizard rock.
