dogs on leash
Shade all the way
Saw lots of small children do this trail with ease
With three small kids (5,7,9). Shaded most of the way.
Nice little hike if you camp near the trail. A bit of a drive for a short 1.2 trek, but really easy to do. Minimal to no drinking water needed.
For the most part the trail ends at the falls. There are some nice small spots for a mini picnic. Very refreshing.
Make sure to pick up after yourself. I did see a number of trash in and out of the falls that people shoved into tree brush or bushes.
If you are already in the area you should stop. I wouldn't drive out just for this as from downtown Ojai took at least 30 minutes to get there. The hike, if you can call it that, took 10 minutes from parking just outside the campground. Nice to sit and enjoy as there are falls now.
Lots of water after the recent rainfall we had. It's muddy though. Trail head has restrooms and campsites...good place for a picnic. We took our 3 month old with us the hardest part was crossing a few small creeks. The lake is more like a large pond but the restroom by the lake is much cleaner.
Falls are full tons of water must see awesome today
Nice, easy to walk trail. There's so much water right now that you have to jump over a few spots along the trail but it's totally worth the trip. You see a couple of nice waterfalls. A small and a tall. Really enjoyed the time on this trail
Great, short hike. Very accessible. I'm all about waterfalls and this has a small but towering falls.
Great little hike! The trail is well maintained albeit a bit wet after rain. The waterfall and view of the mountains are beautiful. The trail is fine for all ages and dogs.
Love it would go again soon
Great short hike, definitely a very friendly hike kids would love.
The waterfall was more of a trickle, but it was still nice. Short hike passing some fall colors on the way. If you feel adventurous, find a way to climb up to the top of the falls at the end of the trail to see the higher waterfall.
