This is a great trail off the main trail road. I did it solo last Sunday afternoon. The weather was great and it’s a heavily shaded trail. I’d been on it once, a long time ago, but had only made it to the footbridge. This time I went about a mile after that, and was hoping to catch the road back, but it was getting late, I was alone, and had seen evidence of bear scat, so I scattered out of there. It’s a great trail, but I would not recommend it solo. My feet hurt cause I didn’t wear thick enough socks, so be sure to bring a friend and appropriate sock wear. Also I had cell service the whole time on the trail. I’ll be doing it again.

2/22/20 be prepared for some scramble. In fact, 2/3 of this trail is super steep with bad footing. Bring lots of water. It’s a lot of elevation gain in a little bit of time, so you’ll definitely feel it in your legs (mine were jello. Like, I could not walk ten feet without buckling.) Great prep for Whitney, considering it’s basically 1000ft elevation gain / mile

Beautiful trail of constructed waterfalls. it features nice shade and cool breezes. I did this trail in a few hours and enjoyed most of the experience. 5$ Parking and lightly trafficked

Super nice! Same park as the bill cull loop. $6-$10 parking but honestly worth it.

Beautiful, not too crowded, and shady. $6-$10 parking

Amazing trail. Be careful! first time there crossed paths with a beautiful California black bear.

Great hike today. Weather was perfect. We parked in the neighborhood and walked up to the ranger station. No paper maps available but was told which direction to head and trails would be marked. For the most part that was true however a little confusion at the water falls marker. Trail forked off and we later found it was just to the other parking lots. Falls trail was in mostly shade so would be good in the summer. Small space for the falls once you’re there but luckily not a lot of people. We made our way back and did the 3/4 mile hike up to the look out. Reading about the Boy Scout camp trail we asked at the ranger station. We decided that would be another day. I did later find a park map on line. Would love to go back and do the other trail. We did see one garter snake on the trail and luckily no bears.

We went early in the morning, just after 7, and there was plenty of open parking at the top lot. It is beautiful right now. Everything is green and blooming. There were quite a lot of people, but we just let people pass us, and carried on. Everyone we saw was friendly, though a couple people had dogs that weren't (on leash, thankfully!). Hardly any litter. I'd definitely go again.

Plus 1.7km unrecorded (2 km round trip parking to trailhead)

just ok. to crowded, no scenic view and the waterfall was tiny. at least it was in the woods

Beautiful trail after the fire road. However, we ran into a rather large bear right on the trail who was completely brazen and even though my group was making noise wouldn’t leave the trail. One person passed us right after we turned around and when warned told us that it is common that people get charged on this trail and he then proceeded to pull out his bear mace.

Nice short trail. Well shaded. Dog friendly. Moderately trafficked on a Sunday afternoon.

This trail was super packed on a Saturday. Easy trail and very dog and kid friendly. LOTS of poison oak along the trail.

I highly recommend here if you truly want to hike and enjoy amazing view with almost 100% shade by trees and leaves around and top of you during hiking. The trail is one of the best that I have seen in my life it’s moderate till a point around the dam where the truck road ends(blocked) and changes to hard! But still amazingly beautiful view and trail. So natural and low traffic

I did this trail this weekend. It is a beautiful canyon, and the trail is a gentle climb all the way through. It is very popular, so don't expect peace and solitude. You can park on the street and walk 0.75 miles to the trail start, avoiding the $10 parking fee.

This was a pretty good hike. The trail was clean and very simple to follow. I really enjoyed the peacefulness of the stream and the beautiful waterfall. Probably won’t go alone again due to warnings of bear habitat and other animals (first time hiking in that type of environment). Loved that I was able to get amazing pictures. I also appreciated the clean restroom and the nice park ranger woman who helped me process my parking fee as well. I will definitely be returning.
