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.

Great hike, lots of shade, creek is running at the end of the hike a little past where it tells you to stop. Tadpoles in the water, awesome breeze. Will do this again!

Easy trail. River was dried up when we hiked. Not really any amazing views, and is kind of sunny for the first half. Was nice in the shade.

Beautiful hike with lot of shade. Cool waterfalls at the end. A bit challenging to climb to the last falls but the kids had fun. Some small flies at the first half of the trail but it didn’t bother us much.

What a beautiful hike/walk ... there is some rock climbing at the end if you want to get to the larger waterfall...it’s definitely worth it....it turns it into a 3.4 mile hike...

Nice easy trail I did with mom. The trail gets narrow towards the end but leads to a nice little waterfall with lots of tadpoles. The ranger warned us about snakes and poison oak on sides of the trail so don’t go wandering off. We did see a snake on the path but not sure what kind, waited until it got out of the way. Overall, lovely afternoon walk and would love to go back soon to see the tadpole growth!

Great little hike for me and my 13-year-old pup. Great trail conditions. Water in amount good at the end (less than a waterfall, more than a water trickle). Notes: * Just keep staying to the left until the falls. * The trail write up said 2.9 miles round trip and the red line on the map seems to end too early. It's more like 4 miles round trip per Endomondo if you go all the way to the falls, so don't give up too early. You'll know when to actually stop. * The falls are several tiers, so don't just stop at the first little one. Again, just keep going and explore! You'll get to a taller one soon enough. * Bring waterproof and/or slip-resistant shoes for this one. Those rock are deceivingly slick! Happy hiking!

Waterfall is there but is a weak one from the lack of rain (02/15/2020). You have to keep walking past where the trail narrows down to a single person trail. When the trail narrows you are a little past halfway to the waterfall. If you reach a fork on the path always stick to the left of the path. I uploaded a picture of it as proof so you can check it out for yourself.

We love this trail! It’s only about 2.5 miles, out and back and very pretty. Kid friendly, wide, clearly marked trails and plenty of free parking in the lot by the trailhead. Will def be back :)

Beautiful trail. Lots of trees and bright green grass. Sun for the first mile, very shaded after that. I found this trail to be VERY secluded and was happy to see people when I did. Bring a friend or a walking stick. Wildlife in the area. (Coyotes, bobcats) Great for photos. Wear good hiking shoes to hike waterfall area. Muddy in spots but not bad. Great for dogs and kids.

Low water, great weather.
