We clocked in at 5.5 miles. We did it as a sunset hike. We started at 4:20 I think I would have started it at 3:30 so we get the sunset coming back down! You must park on the street there is no parking lot. To get to the top just cross the bridge and stay to the left this app have the correct downloaded road. Dogs are allowed on leash! It does get steep on some parts. There are three benches you pass on the way up. when you pass the Henninger Flats sign there are benches to the left. There is also a geological marker to the left of the sign of your staring at it. Bring a head lamp if your hiking it in the dark! Over all it’s a beautiful sunset hike!

Good Socal hike with great views of the mountains.

This is a relatively easy hike but, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's very crowded on the weekends

It’s horrible here on the weekend... Lots of trash, dog poop, people making out and people smoking! Never on the weekend again!

Any waterfall because of the rain yesterday?

Moderate Trail with a lot of bikers so keep your ears and eyes open!

a nice little hike plenty of shade lots of different plant life but not much water this time of year but still worth the trip relatively easy

Nice mellow hike. second half is shaded. Obviously, not too much water but it's worth seeing the end.

Fun, shaded trail. Be weary of mountain bikers.

Love this camp to just chill and cook. Great for hammocks and good views of town.

Nice easy hike. Way too many people on the weekends. Unfortunately the last time I went there was some kind of company family event. There seemed to be a hundred ppl crowding the waterfall. Kids running and yelling everywhere. Not the peaceful experience i was looking for.

Great site for a beginner backpacking trip. There is no water at the campground, so come prepared. We hiked up at night with an almost full moon and did not need our flashlights until we arrived at the campground. Strongly recommend going up Friday night if you plan on camping, as you will get better campgrounds. Also, strongly recommend being dropped off and picked up, as parking is in a residential neighborhood and might be at a premium. No open fires on CG, but you can burn wood in the provided stoves.


Great views of the city below.

Great afternoon ,great view.

Easy hike. Waterfall is very low at the end but has a few trickles

Yes, this trail is very popular with mountain bikers, but I don't get the hate. The dozen or so we saw this morning were all unfailingly courteous.

The trail itself is pleasant. The first mile or so is a dull walk on a paved road near JPL. After that, though, it's a pretty, shaded single track that goes up the canyon. Nothing special, but nice.

Love this trail and will be back

love it great for kids too

Easy and nice. Always feel safe here even at night.

So beautiful and so worth it! It’s a very easy hike and there is a baby waterfall at the end too (Sep, 2018) Perfect to dip your feet in, take pictures and just relax. I bring my 9lbs pup with me and she loves playing in the water.

Came here for the first time a few months ago and really enjoyed the walk under the bridges and was very simple. Pretty much no incline so it was perfect to do some running. Will continue to come back here!

Enjoyed a beautiful day to take this trail. Have come here before back when the stream was pretty dry last summer 2017. Really enjoyed coming back, listening to the water run, and enjoying that waterfall was amazing!!

Even though the falls don't flow as much, it's still a great hike.

This is a great Hike for those who want to be on top of a Mountain. The incline is decent all the way. Has a nice nature Center at the Top along with 7 CampGrounds. This is the Beginning to the San Gabriel Mountains aka Sheep Mountain. Go Early! Avoid the Sun! It’s well worth it. You can see the ocean on Clear days

California has been going through a drought and this summer has been one of the hottest summers I’ve ever experienced. The waterfall has lost its heavy and pleasant flow.
