The hike is about a mile across the flat desert on a very wide and well-defined trail. Well before the mouth of the canyon when you get to the very first tree turn 90 degrees to your right and walk about 100ft to reach the hidden waterfall. There is a wide path to the top of the fall. Reaching the base of the waterfall requires some scrambling.

Awesome for the kids first hike! My pupper also had a blast! Can't wait to come back after the rainy season to see the creek in its full glory.

Horrible trail. Definitely not kid friendly. Unmarked trails so noone knew where to go. Dog poop EVERYWHERE!!! Runner friendly trail my ass. U will twist your ankle just walking thru this sad trail. Only reason it gets 1 star and not zero is because the beautiful background. Everything else...... SUCKED

Nice easy trail for all age levels. Was pretty busy at the beginning but once we got back into the mountains you saw less people.

Very easy trail. Loose sand most of the way and some rocks for the first 1.6 miles. After that you can continue into the mountains and the scrambling gets more as you go.

Great trail. Neat water features. Trail gets sketchy towards the end. Hard to follow.
