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.
Easy kid friendly hike!
Get out and hike this area soon. The wildflowers are beautiful and abundant. The Moonridge Trail has an exceptional display.
It's lovely place
LOVE this hike. Easy little hike, kid and dog friendly. Beautiful scenery, especially after it rains
great, easy hike! went after some rain so the mountains were green and flowers were blooming too. recommend going earlier in the morning due to crowding.
Easy. Kid friendly.
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.
