Took a risk and drove out to the trailhead because we reeealy wanted to see it. Alas, it is indeed closed!! Worth it though for the drive (as long as you don’t mind winding through the mountains)

HikingGreat!

An easy trail with a lot of shades. The waterfall at the end was breathtaking. The water was not plentiful, but the dripping water gave us the opportunity to get so close to it and taste it. We really enjoyed our time there. The trail itself was fun too, with a lot of elements such as crossing creeks and wood logs. A great memory during our Ojai trip.

Very easy! I would agree and say it’s more of a hard walk not really a hike (15 min) to the waterfall, very beautiful

Second time here. The path changes slightly since the last time. Very easy, i’d actually consider it a difficult walk rather than a hike. Waterfall was trickling nicely and it was very cold water! Overall had a nice time

Place is just...wow...not much of a hike..but literally wow place was awesome ...expect a few creek crossing on the way up..oh and did have to ask one of the campers where the trail head started since there is no sign for it..and parking outside the campground is free which means before the gate..$10 if parking inside the campground itself for a day pass ...just FYI ..oh throw your freaking trash in a trash can !..some fools decided to leave some cans chill’n by the falls ..punk a**’s..yes I carried them back to the campground to be disposed properly..

Went last Sunday at 7:30am. There were campers and had a bit of difficulty finding the trail head. It was hidden behind a camper’s tent. Even with all the campers no one was on the trail and we had the falls to ourselves. Very surprised as most reviewers said it was crowded on other days, and we had not one other person in sight! Didn’t even have to dodge anyone for social distancing. So go super early, it’s worth it. I def recommend super early on Sunday (if you have to do a wknd day) think bc of campers packing up gave us a clear! Gorgeous falls, very much like a bit of rainforest. Did unfortunately find a used condom in a log near the left falls side. Gross people, such a disgrace to nature. Otherwise it was amazing time.

Crowded but incredibly beautiful—worth it in my opinion, but social distancing was difficult.

Very cool hike that most kids can handle. Incredibly crowded considering how far out of the way this trail is. We were there on a Sunday. Similar to nojoqui falls, but prettier, in a gorgeous valley. There are a couple small swimming holes in the creek.

Extremely crowded trail overrun with people not wearing masks and not social distancing. Sure to be a Covid hotspot soon! Also, campsite area full of trash and overflowing trash cans.

Easy short trail to the waterfall. Arrived ~8:30am and there was only another group of 4 people there. More people started to arrive ~9:30am.

Great easy trail. Mostly shady. Great for families with kids. Waterfall was beautiful. Not packed at all when we went early in the morning. I do suggest taking an extra pair of clothes just in case you decide to jump into the water.

Very simple and mostly shady hike. Trailhead is at the round - about at the campground. You need to park down the road a bit and walk up to the trailhead. Beautiful falls with a small pool. There weren’t a lot of people there at all on a Tuesday. Just wanted to see the falls :)

Arrived around 10am today. A ton of unmarked trails to explore if you so choose. We took our time exploring the creek and mini water pools along the way. The water fall was breathtaking. So much water, moss and greenery. Worth a visit. A little tiny cave or rock hole to crawl in and come out on the other side. It wasn’t crowded but on our way out about 12:30pm a ton of people were on this short trail which when they all get to the waterfall will become a crowded area. Easy and fun for kids to play in water. I do recommend to get their early. Trail not marked so it starts on the left side of the round about. Windy roads driving there. Bring extra shoes and socks if you plan on really enjoying the water.

Easy walk. I brought both my little boys. There’s a small little opening (cave) to crawl under once you reach the waterfall. Super cool. Can’t miss it.

Pretty easy hike. Love how it goes next to the river. I did see a few snakes the first time I went, but I’ve been told they aren’t venomous.

Really nice little hike with some great shade along the way from trees. The waterfall wasn’t gushing down but it was a good stream coming down. My friend and I explored and climbed around on the sides of hills. Saw people get to the top of the falls but I’m not sure how they did. It’s a super beautiful place in the mountains.
