The road to the trailhead is closed. Drove all the way up to turn around. This should be noted here; the trailhead is in the burn area near Mount Wilson and cannot be accessed from Hwy 2.

Hiking

Revisited this trail today. Since I was last here in March—maybe in the past month staging something during the fire?—heavy construction machines or large trucks have been up the back side of the summit from Rosenita Saddle and absolutely shredded the trail, leaving a sand trap/fire road in its place. It feels like a bunch of trees have been taken down, too? The views into Big Tujunga are still beautiful, but it’s quite sad. From the summit to Horse Flats through all the boulders is as beautiful as ever, so next time I’ll probably do an up and back through the campground and skip the loop. Update: knowledgable folks tell me this a bulldozer line firebreak and will be repaired by trail crews eventually.

I hiked this with a friend and did the out and back staying to the left side of the trail marker. The trail does loop to a fire road however the beauty of the out and back is being among the amazing trees and landscape. However, when we were descending we smelled smoke and unfortunately it was the beginning of the bobcat fire which has probably ravaged this area. This hike was incredibly beautiful and I definitely recommend it if it is still standing.

HikingBugsNo shade

It would have been a fine hike if we had begun earlier. There was no shade whatsoever. The first half of the hike is very easy, and features a cool tunnel through the first mountain. Walking back is entirely uphill for nearly four miles. It is also almost exactly eight miles, starting from the trailhead, to Inspiration Point, and back to the trailhead, not 6.8 miles. It only took us about 3 hours, but we didn’t spend much time at Inspiration Point. Parking was super easy, lots of spaces along the main road. We were also attacked and followed by bees that absolutely refused to leave us alone multiple times.

We did get very very lost and it did backtrack us, once you pass the group campsite keep going the waterfall itself is about 3miles roughly past that. There is a rope to go down to the waterfall. Besides that nice trail would do again!

HikingBugsGreat!

The trail was really pretty. It’s all down hill so when you come back it’s all up hill. There were a lot of little nats in your face kind of annoying. The trail is in the campground. Was super confusing if you don’t go to the campground. When you’re on the trail about 30 minutes in there will be a fork in the trail. If you want to see the waterfall you take the burkhart trail. Good time. Lots of shade!!

Scenic driving

Awesome hike, kicked my butt coming back up the canyon. It was hard to find the little waterfall but kept to the map and read the reviews so I had some direction. Very beautiful, I loved it!

I started at the Burkhart trailhead, jumped onto Cooper's Canyon trail, and continued onto the PCT when I reached the 2 Hwy. I crossed the hwy one more time before turning around. It's a proper moderate hike, with a lovely easy stretch down at the bottom of the canyon as you hike along the creek. The creek was dry in most places but a couple of pools still existed. It's hot in the sun and amazing in the shade, and thankfully there is some provided by mature oaks and pines. I really enjoyed this hike, but it's too hot today. I would love to come back when it's much cooler and hike even further. With the PCT available, this hike can be as long as I want!

Nice trail. Signage could improve but when I recorded our way back to the car exactly from the falls, it came up as 2.7 miles. So total, it should be at 5.4-ish. There is a parking lot at the actual start of trail but you need a day pass. Otherwise, park somewhere on highway 2. Saw a red/white/black snake, a lot of flies/mosquitos... Spray some bug repellant before your hike, might help.

Easy hike from the campground. We did miss the waterfall turnoff initially and turned towards the Cooper Canyon trail camp. Nice streams and shaded areas. Some exposed areas towards the start. A few bugs but not really a bother.

This trail had a ton of different landscapes: sand, boulders, trees, and more. The best part was seeing some beautiful yellow wildflowers along the way, plus the trail was sandy itself making it easy on the legs.

Nice hike, including Mt Lowe peak. The road is very rocky, I felt tired mostly because of stepping on rocks. Views are amazing. I did a loop, in via Mt Lowe trail and back via Mt Lowe road. I think I would not be able to do Lowe trail back from Inspiration point, too steep! Not crowded.

Great trail! Shady most of the way, elevation gain is minimal which makes the hike back great too! The views are incredible. Even at the peak of summer there was water at the falls and through the stream leading up to it. If you want to take waterfall photos for the gram, I suggest taking some water shoes with you. Also, if you want to make it a shorter hike you can trail head from the buckhorn campground and shave about a mile off.

( Angeles national parks require a day pass purchase in advance) I really enjoyed the hike because we got lost haha . I didn’t see the waterfall sign so We spent 2 hours walking up and down the creek that’s on the bottom . The hike is literally after the 2 mile sign that says Cooper Canyon, on the bottom someone wrote “waterfalls ==> “ it’s in marker . You walk some steps and there’s a rock/Ravine path to Your left and you go down using a rope. If you reach the creek you went too far. We went really early to beat the sun and missed it because no one was down there yet so we didn’t hear people down there . https://www.fs.usda.gov/detailfull/r5/passes-permits/recreation/?cid=STELPRDB5181410&width=full
