The first part of the trail follows Moonridge trail looking down upon Indian Creek. The 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. You will be surprised that there is such a nice setting amongst the suburban sprawl.

This is a great family hike or location to train. Be aware of where you park if the lot is full. There are signs in the neighborhood informing people not to park in certain locations. I've seen the cops there so it looks like it's enforced. We arrived at 7am and saw a rattlesnake 20 min into the hike. So be extra alert. The trail (depending on where you are going) is lovely and leads to a waterfall. There are signs stating do not go in the water. It's yucky. Great spot for photography.

I was worried because it started off so hot and exposed but on the loop back it was easy and treesy. The waterfall was really flowing too!
