We made it with our 15 month son in a backpack carrier. The trail is amazing, with scenic views. Our best trail in Santa Monica Mountains so far!

Fun trail with wonderful views of both the ocean and the surrounding mountains. Would recommend you wear light pants while hiking this trail. Parts are narrow with a lot of growth. I have a good amount of scratches on my legs post hike.

best trail iv’e ever seen.

Was a great hike with an incredible amount of incline at the end. Unfortunately the waterfall was dry, a bumper but all in all it was still a lot of fun.

Breathtaking

A lot of people say this can be done in 4hrs but you'd be stupid to do it. There's enough to see and side trails to explore you can (and should) take all day with this one.
