The trail is great for trail running and normally takes 1-3 hours. This route goes out to the picnic table / camping site, and the trail is in great shape.

If you like it long and hard, this is the one for you. Bring more water than you think you'll need, and wear/bring pants if you plan to summit. Should also start early. The ripe guava in August were very nice.

Easy early on with steady elevation gain. About 4 miles into it the trail gets more difficult with lots of ups and downs and several sections with ropes for climbing. Beautiful views. Only encountered one other individual on the trail all day.

Long trail, not too hard at all. Go passed the old sign that says it's closed due to landslide. The trail was fine. Wear a hat and sunscreen on a sunny day. Spikes are useful for the rope sections.

Convenient location. Great ridge hike varied surroundings decent view and elevation but not the best. Got lost for a couple hours don't miss the left arrow sign. Ignore the mudslide warning sign there is a new obvious oath over that park.

Fun, shady hike that a nice reward at the end. The pro of going when hasn't rain is that the trail isn't muddy, but then the waterfall is pretty small. It was still a cool little area to hang out and jump into the water though!
