This is a wide track trail through a canyon that was known for oil drilling and ranching. It becomes a single track about 1.2 miles up that crosses a seasonal stream several times further up the canyon. This hike can be extended by simply going deeper up the trail. Proceed at your own risk once you leave the wide track.
absolutely beautiful trail. recommend for easy hiking. really good for trail running.
Awesome hike about 40min. in to a waterfall. Beautiful!
Amazing views , great scenery and if you go early you will see deer.. The waterfalls are beautiful and there is plenty of shade..
Lots of green since we had all the rain. The water was flowing down the river and was nicely shaded from the sun. Def will do it again
It was a beautiful hike. My children had a great time playing in the stream. Our favorite hike around Santa Clarita.
My favorite hike so far! Love how shady and green it is and love the stream and waterfalls!!!! Perfect hike!
I really enjoyed this hike. It's pretty easy. Make sure you go to the very south part of the canyon parking lot (near the rangers station) to see the waterfalls. If you go south all the way and KEEP LEFT you will start to hear a stream on your lefthand side and come to a cool, inviting forest surrounded by big oak trees and green grass. Keep following the stream and you will cross over it several times. The trail will become more narrow and a little more windy but if you keep following it you will come to the waterfalls. There are three of them and they keep getting bigger as you follow them. You can climb up the waterfalls, as I did with my chihuahua, and it's worth it. Enjoy.
we were there on Sat Jan 28th..this is an easy trail..few small water crossings..not very crowded..a lot of shade. .would definitely go again
