This is the same trail as Beaudry Loop. Great workout. Steady incline and great views of Glendale on one side and DTLA on the other.

Nice wide dirt trail. I did this hike in the middle of the day and ran across a bunch of lizards and a couple of snakes just sunbathing in the middle of the trail.

Pretty sure I didn't walk for 5.8 miles and it seems that it's two separate loops that combines to form that but I'm still unsure how that was supposed to work!

Anyways, I did make it to the waterfall which was decent compared to some others I've seen, but that's LA for you. The hike was relatively easy - definitely recommend going up the train at the very beginning instead of walking up the road. There's plenty of shade, which is why I chose to do this trail instead of some others.
