Nice simple paved trail with the wifey that led to a lookout of the falls. Little incline along the way up with nice views of the trees and mountains. Lots of families on a Saturday, not too hot at all

beautiful and simple ! went in the afternoon friday & saw lots of families. would love to come post-pandemic, as for now 90% of hikers were unmasked and not even trying to follow social distancing measures at the falls themselves.

Awesome, hike was there Tuesday morning around 8:00am almost no one at that time. kid friendly. definitely coming back but during the week and early to avoid the crowds

I took my kids and sister in law 5/16/2020. It is not closed both Baldy and this parking lot were open. Water was pouring down. Hike is super easy and short. Prepare yourself for the high altitude.

Muy bonita la ruta, pavimentada hasta la cascada. Clima excelente y me encanto porque llegue hasta arriba de la montaña que es 3.5 millas solamente subida. Camino no muy angosto, con rocas no muchas pero vale la pena la vista

Beautiful year round. Very short but well worth it. Pavement road makes it great for a quick run up to the waterfalls.

Easy, short, kid-friendly, and beautiful. Disappointing amount of trash and litter near the falls, so if you see some grab it!

Great trail! Amazing views! I would suggest wearing hiking boots for the trails. I wore regular Nike shoes and some parts of the trails were difficult to get around. It’s possible, but highly suggest hiking shoes.

Trail was still open yesterday around noon. There was a handful of people there but nothing crazy. As I was leaving around 1:30 I saw a sheriff pull up to the trail head not sure if they were shutting it down or just checking up.

Still had access yesterday but there were lots of sheriffs in the village. Everyone was respectful of distancing. God bless everyone. Stay safe.

This is a fairly easy trail, paved and uphill until you get to the scenic overlook where you can see all three tiers. Go past that and the trail goes downhill over some rocks to the bottom tier of the falls. The falls are really flowing right now and there's still a lot of snow. If you can, go during the week there's barely anyone there.

The trail is easy. I took my four year old and my one year old. It was a bit scenic and short. Beautiful waterfall but the reason why I rated it three stars is because it’s gets too overcrowded.

Great for young kids looking for adventure. Easy paved road most the way. The water flows almost just as much as when I came out in the Summer but with the added bonus of little snow patches here and there and great views of the snowy mountain tops.

Pretty easy trail but still enjoyable. Most of the trail was paved, right before you get to the waterfall you can either hike up a bit and around the mountain or hike down and go through the little stream. We hiked down and it was nice. On the way back we climbed up and it was a quick climb. I wouldn’t go again because it’s too short and there’s really not much to look at until you get to the waterfall.
