Went back to the waterfall yesterday with a buddy. One other guy on the trail with his dog the entire hike. Lightly snowing in the later afternoon. Some spots along the trail are tough to navigate, as long as you follow the creek you’ll make it to the falls. Overall great hike in cool temps.

One of the best hikes I’ve been on.

Sisar is always good, its one of our weekly hikes. Starting to get more crowded which brings more trash!? Pack it in pack it out!

Strenuous first mile, but after that you’re rewarded with great views. Reyes peak and Pine Mt. to the north, Lake Casitas and the Channel Islands to the south.

Awesome trail! Bring a lunch and plenty of water or stop into downtown Ojai and grab Ojai pizza and a beer topa topa Tao house

Trail in good condition. Very green after the rain we had. Nice shade at the at the start start were the climb would be a killer with out. Nice views of the. Ojai valley

This is a nice trail with great views over Ojai. Like some of the other comments I would suggest taking it counterclockwise as the climb is more gradual. The Pratt Trail section on the west is steeper and rockier. At the Eastern end you should amend the trail by continuing up firebreak road to join the hiking trail rather than cutting through private property on the road as shown on the trail map.

Nice hike with a pretty good incline and lots of switchbacks. The steam had water and it’s a GORGEOUS view of the Ojai Valley

Easy walk, completely flat. It just rained so the river is flowing, there is currently no way to cross. I walked down trying to find a path but to no avail. The trail is in fact closed to access the other side, I would try again in a month or so.

It was pretty crowded but it was a Sunday. Lots of horses and mountain bikers.

Nice hike, went after the rains so creek was moving good.

one of a kind hike in Ventura Co..

Great Jeep/Dirt Bike trails, gradually gets more difficult for larger vehicles the further in you go. Starts as one and quickly branches off to many different trails in all directions. The one we followed eventually turned into a stream/river and was no longer a trail at all, just a natural cut out through the mountain.

Great for a quick hike!

This will always be one of my favorites! The trail is easygoing with only a few moderate hills. It’s perfect for a first back packing trip or if you’re testing new gear. Only do this trail when water is flowing (usually during CA winter months). It can get pretty chilly at night so if you go, make sure to bring warm clothes for night. The hot springs are well hidden at the end of the trail, but there is a good spot to sit and enjoy the warm water that can accommodate around 5 people. Definitely a CA hidden gem :)

All Trails is the best. This is a very sweet and charming hike— seems like someone opened up their back yard with a statue garden.

Love that you get a great sense of the valley layout and have views for most of the hike. Bonus: options to pickup other trails if you want more exertion.

Nice views and trail. Good for fast paced hike or running.

Just beautiful. Wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving!!

For an novice XC oriented rider like myself, I found Gridley to be quite challenging. While the elevation gain itself on the smooth sections was moderate at best, the frequent technical sections of the loose gravel and rocks combine with steep/short punchy climbing sections made the trail quite difficul overall. I completed this with a 120mm bike with a dropper but with XC geometry.

The scenery around the immediate trail was fairly boring as it was all recently burned, the distant view was satisfying.

On a side note, from an avid hikers perspective, this would be a nice "moderate" level hike, not unlike other trails in the area like Sisar Canyon or Chorro Grande Trail. Once you top out on the ridge, hang a left and head to Nordoff Peak to make the hike really worth your time.

Awesome trail! 3 day backpacking trip. ***Easy to Moderate***
Dont be afraid to take the boots off and cross the river. We wasted a lot of time trying to not get our feet wet.
Willett hot spring was a bit difficult to find the trail leading up to it. We asked for advice and found the trail straight to it. Not to be a downer, but he hot spring was a big metal tub on the mountain side. Still pretty awesome tho.

Great Hike and spectacular views of the park landscape as well as the ocean and channel islands. Challenging but doable. Did it in 6 hours including a 30 minute break at the top, however I ran some flat/downhill stretches. Gets a bit chilly around the summit, but in the sun you’re okay even without jacket/sweater. Did not see any snake/mountain lion, but that may be due to this time of the year (late December). The trail is generally fine. There is one small section which is a bit sketchy but not a problem or dangerous at all. Good hike and for the most part a good trail to run as well.

I hiked this Christmas Day 2018. Since the fire went through we didn’t see a single bird or any wildlife on the trail which was a bit eerie, but I was told on a previous hike my friend had ran into rattlesnakes and even a mountain lion in the evening. We started at 6am and were back at the car by 5 going a leisurely pace with breaks along the way. It’s been a while since I’ve been hiking so there were quite a few challenging stretches and moments I wanted to give up, but if a negative is that it’s all up hill a positive is that the way back is all down hill. Everybody else had tired themselves out but I, the out of shape slowpoke, was sailing down. The weather was also nice. There was ice on the ground and it was windy near the top, but the chill was refreshing and there were times earlier it was warm enough I took off my jacket.
In conclusion, yes it’s hard, but if I can do it anyone can at the right pace and the views are 10/10 worth it. You should go :)

Beautiful hike. A lot of switchbacks on the way up. & towards the half way point the trail becomes very steep. Overall recommend you go on a cool day to enjoy this beauty

Beautiful late day walk with my dog- Topa! Couldn't keep out of the water. She had a blast!

love this place is one of my favorite hike i usually do this hike 5 time a year there is 5 water falls

but this places was much better 2 years ago but still beautiful....
