Really fun driving here. Very short easy walk. No need for bug spray in November.

Exactly as described. Nice waterfall at the end, leisurely walk to get there.

This was a very simple trail with a beautiful ending at the waterfall. Wonderful colors this time of year and the moss growing over the rocks had an amazing cascading waterfall too. So pretty! The entrance was a bit hidden but look for the sign that says Rose Valley Falls. The trail that’s gated off is a fire road.

Fun little trail, cool waterfall at the end. My 2year old enjoyed it enough to be entertained the entire walk and had fun time splashing cold water on her hands from the waterfall.

Very easy, dog and kid friendly, and very quick- with a lovely waterfall surprise at the end of your 20 minute 'hike.' Great little family trail.

Cool easy trail to the falls nothing major but you can climb to the top of the falls and see an even bigger waterfall ( when conditions are right). This is sketchy but fun and exciting if your into that sort of thing

So pleasantly surprised that there was NO TRASH on the trail. Way to Go! These short waterfall hikes are usually plagued with people who do not know how to conduct themselves in nature. A big heartfelt virtual hug to all the people who care for this trail and these falls. This short, shaded, stroll is sublime. I'd have to say the one of the best views is when you arrive at the trailhead and are walking through the campground. The falls are grand, not in volume, but in height. Such a gem... let's all do our part to keep it so.

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.

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 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.
