Pretty easy hike to the falls! It gets a little slippery during some parts of the trail but nothing too difficult. Make sure you explore further down the creek — the view is incredible.

Nice waterfall. Stopped by on my way to MT. Baldy. Not much water falling like in previous years at this time.

Did this with the family late afternoon. All incline until you get to the creek, but very easy with a little bit of hiking experience. Took 20 minutes to get to the Falls from the parking area. Recommend doing it around early Spring for max water output.

paved road that starts off a bit steep. Once you arrive at the Fall you can hike in the creek bed or continue on up the mountain.

Went to see the San Antonio Falls, a lot easier hike than we anticipated. Another gentleman stated that another 3 miles up was the ski lodge, and we decided to continue on. I'm so happy we did, it was beautiful hike with beautiful views. The temp was very cool when the wind would blow and up on top of the lodge area was cool as well. I would definitely do this hike again.

The majority of the trail is paved. Waterfall was beautiful, running crystal clear water. We got to watch search and rescue do some rappelling down the falls. Stroller friendly up to the dirt trail, due to the heavy rains the trail has some tricky washed out areas...I would say 5 years old max age limit, due to the washed out area. Need a forest parking pass available at the Mt. Baldy visitors center.

I wouldnt rate this as moderate. Its a very easy hike. My wife and I are somewhat rookie hikers and she did it with a 20 lb baby strapped to her. A fun short hike for a weekend day!

Nice scenic walk, its actually a small paved road that leads u up to the falls. It looked really beautiful up there yesterday because there had been some snowfall. All in all we got some great pics and took in some fresh mountain air. I think it would be fun for children and families who aren't avid hikers but want to get out and enjoy some nature.

Great easy hike out and back. Highly recommend it especially with a strong water flow.

Lovely hike with gorgeous falls. Fairly easy to get to. Just tread carefully as you pick your way along the creek bed to the falls themselves once the trail leaves the road.

Easy hike, but steep. Very heavily trafficked during weekend. Lot of people use it as a break before going on bigger hikes, but you can get to the base of the waterfall.
