Short forest hike to waterfall. Great for kids. Beginning of S Crest Trail 130 from Canyon Estates. Easy .5 mile hike to waterfalls. Easy for kids - can also go to the top of the falls to explore and continue hike up from there.

Just imagine an old, fat, & out of shape woman hiking this Trail. It was great. I recommend that some areas be better marked, as I found taking the beaten path wasn't necessarily taking the trail. There is a lot of loose Rock & it would be easy to turn an ankle. It was perfect for me as it was a good physical workout.

Perfect for our 2 and 1/2 year old to be able to hike with us. We had to pick him up a couple of times going uphill, but it was scenic and easy. Waterfall was more of a trickle (in October) but still a fun destination. Our dog loved it too, and we saw a number of other dogs out hiking with their owners.

great trail. Lots of loose rocks in places so watch your step. Good shade on most of the trail. Will definitely return.

Great hike and enjoyed all the scenery! Clean trail and good for dogs and cats! We have a cat that likes to hike also so it was just right. Good areas to stop and enjoy a quick snack! Easy to find with the directions.

Couple piles of fresh bear scat (been a while, googled to be sure) right off the trail, easy walk with great views for the mile or so I went up.

Easy hike. Seemed less than 1.5 miles. Very pretty scenery. Could be marked a little better where there are options as to which way to go.

Good, family trail. Easy hike with nice view of a small waterfall. Would be nice if people did a better job cleaning up after their dogs.

Shaded trail, perfect for the warmer weather hikes. There was no water running through the waterfall when we went. However, the views from the waterfall path were nice. The cave was easy to find.
