loved it for my 1st hike and boys loved it to great family time

First time. Well maintained, well marked trails. Lots of shade. Nice elevation climb. Good stuff.

Great small hike, I just don't understand the loud music. Why don't you drive your obnoxious cars with the loud exhaust and play your music loud then.

My favorite place to get a quick hike in. But it is definitely not 5.8 miles, this info should be corrected. 3 miles round trip if you hike from the bottom parking lot and maybe 1 mile if you hike from the top parking lot. Too crowded on the weekends and a bit dangerous with young children and narrow trails. I also wouldn’t call it easy if starting from the bottom, moderate compared to Eaton or Sturtevant Falls.

I've been on this trial many times and never found any trouble, yes there are animals but you are in there environment, the only thing that is a lil surprising is that the app does not show MTN biking on here.

A bit of an uphill climb, but it was worth it for all the forestry and the little waterfall. Park in the second parking lot at the top and go to the left of the cabin office to start this trail.

this is a pretty tough hike. plenty of shade. we didn't see more than 5 people and bring plenty of water

I'm giving this hike five stars even though it's short we saw bears and a great double waterfall and plenty of shade I highly recommend it and a lot of really friendly people

Nice and easy

Great trail and nice waterfall but it’s just too busy for me. Too many kids having melt downs because they did not want to be there! The trail gets narrow so there’s not enough room to get by especially with parents and children trying to pass at the same time. Next time I’ll try going earlier to see if I could avoid the crowds.

Super easy trail - very busy - you're not going to run this unless you get there before everyone else -

Encountered not one, but TWO bears on this hike with my friend and pitbull! Was very scary. Never hiking here again, considering I had been here and skipped out on the hike a few days ago while with family and nephew at 3 years old. A woman down towards the parking lot mentioned a mom and baby bear around lately and said we were "VERY LUCKY" to get away from those bears without being chased down. Not safe. Beautiful scenery but not worth the scare.

It’s very beautiful. Went with my kids and they had a great time.

We went after a rainfall, smelled super earthy and everything was so lush. Waterfall was running, great hike!

Has a chill vibe go it. Green and calm with a nice little waterfall. Went on a weekend morning and it was quite crowded. Would recommend going on a weekday.

Found this area by chance. very nice hike. Found a salamander, handsize, at the waterfall and a baby snake went across our path on the trail. Nice to see wildlife is coming out.

plus found a nice area to put up my hammock and rest.

This is a beautiful, family-friendly hike with plenty of shade, and can be lengthened depending on where you park.

This is a simple and enjoyable hike within Monrovia City Limits. The price to park is $6 cash on weekends and $5 cash on weekdays. We live a few miles away so sometimes we walk from our home but other times we like to support the city and simply park and pay. We’ve ran the trail from the lot to the falls in 12 minutes, jogged in 15 and walked at a slower pace at 20 minutes. The trees and environment are very similar to Oak Creek in AZ and the trail is not too crowded if you get there around 7 am or around 4 in the afternoon.

Beautiful place but a lot of bugs, swarms. Be on lookout for rattle snakes, we came upon one in the middle of trail and he wouldn't let us pass, very aggressive. Didn't want to chance it with grandson, so we turned around. He of course was just as excited to see snake than falls.

Good hike. Lots of shades. Easy parking in the neighborhood. Parking Lots is small.

I have not hike in LA for a while, so I was exciting to explore the new trail in my hiking list. Surprisingly to find out that this trail has a lot greens than usual, which was very nice! 90% are under shades so don't worry to be sunburns or anythings. Waterfall is kinda small but still nice. Because is a dog friendly trail, the waterfall area became like a dog show event stage too!

This was our first hiking trail and we loved it!
