Love this trail! Easy hike and the waterfall is beautiful! My son got a tick on him so be sure to do a body check

Short, semi steep, beautiful falls. Ticks. Park in front of open field on the left side, across from Salmon house on the right side. Follow the bike trail just next to the salmon colored house, and then after you walk a bit, you’ll find the trail head. With a big sign and a map. We had a dog whose older and legs are a bit sensitive and it was very bad for him. But it was fine for us humans who are avid hikers. Quite short. You could probably do both trails, you’ll see when you get there. The whole Linda falls took us only 1 hour round trip with hang out time.

Very short hike and difficult to find trailhead. You have to look for the salmon colored house on the main road (across from baseball field) and near it will be a sign that says ‘Bike Route’. Follow that and it will take you to the actual trailhead which is clearly marked.

Short and sweet :)

Nice hike, pretty easy and very dusty. Terrain varies from woods to meadow, mostly flat. Picnic table overlooking airstrip. Some of us (well, ok..me) were freaked out by the pack of coyote we heard crying/calling. Seemed to be stalking us. I had my puppy with me and it was very un-nerving. Past a runner who said he sees the pack often but not to worry...they are harmless. No others on the trail. Id recommend doing this with a friend or two.

A little tricky to find as you have to park on the street and walk in. We took the entrance closest to the ball field but across the street. Pretty easy hike most the way. When you get close to the waterfall it gets steep and is worth the climb down! Water was flowing beautifully. Visited on Feb 24 2018. The kids had a blast climbing rocks. We all did! Didn’t take the trail back up. Climbed up all the rocks instead.

That was a nice and short hike. Cute falls.

Ok so I never actually made it to the trail! I could not find the actual trailhead! Can someone please give me some advice as to exactly where it is located? Thanks so irritated with myself.

Beautiful mellow hike to some waterfalls. The trail was to the base of the waterfalls is rather short and totally worth it. There is the main waterfall at the end of the trail and multiple falls upstream. If you are wanting to go on more trails you can and still hear the waterfalls in the distance.

Short but sweet.

Mostly fire roads and the road splits off in different directions multiple times but we used our intuition and managed to make a big circle back to the entrance.

Took two hours. As others have said, easy to get lost.

Trail is mostly shaded and includes portions of 4H camp access road. Hiking clockwise, the end of the marked loop near the trailhead is blocked due to construction. The property is crisscrossed with mapped trails and it was easy finding a workaround (unsigned), but it did cause us to backtrack a few hundred yards. Great walk with our dog.

Great mountain biking trails. Perfect for introducing kids to the sport.

Great hike with plenty of shade with mild up & down trails that send you in all sorts of different directions. Mark the trail turns so you don't get lost.

Short but nice, pretty waterfall

Mark your hike as you can easily get lost

Parked at the turn where there is a walk-in point to Los Posades State Forrest. I love the up and down terrain along the way to the Eisenhower experiemental forrest. The trails are mainly fire roads which makes for easy navigation. None of the trails are marked with signs but I attend the 4H summer camp as a chaperone and am familiar with the area so we hiked down into the camp and completed our loop up the fire road, passed the department of forestry station and back out to the road. Love the hike from either direction, a little up hill and down hill, as well as plenty of shade.

Such a beautiful waterfall!
The hike is not difficult at all.

cool, quick hike out to the falls. More of a walk really but the water fall is awesome. We took Old Sawmill Trail afterwards for a little over a mile and it seems to go nowhere.

Great, wide trails, but none are marked. I found it very easy to take the wrong trail, would have. een lost w/out GPS.
Lots of shade, going through the woods, a few gills to contend with, but overall, very nice.

This Trail is nice! the loop i did was a bit short but there are plenty of trails that you can sure make it longer. The mosquitos were pretty hungry so be ware and bring some mosquito repellant if you are hiking. around mile 2.5 there is a good climb on single trail but be ware of all the poison oak on the side.

Go left as you go out. The trail switches back and is a significant descent. The way back in is still uphill, but not as challenging. Not all that scenic. But, a good cardio workout in about 2 hours.

The falls are really flowing! The hike is a bit short so we did the Sawmill trail, too. Some sites say yes for dogs, but the sign at the trailhead said no...

Lots of poison oak.

The only trail markers are for the 4H camp and the cemetery so it is a good idea to have your phone with GPS to make sure youre on the right path. The trails are basically CA state forrest service roads. The forest is not old growth but there are some great views of Chiles/Pope valley from the eastern portion of the loop.
