Amazing hike, you just have a permit! Go in the morning to avoid crowds at the watering hole. A few fun wineries outside of the trail to visit after the hike

Great short hike up to a lonely bench with a beautiful view. No shade, but lots of wildflowers and things to look at. We went twice in the last two weeks - passed two people the first time, nobody the second.

Considering I’m hiking after the trails just opened up along with a 1/2 capacity parking lot it was very enjoyable. A bit warm, and many people.

Great trail, nice easy walk lots of beautiful flowers to admire and plenty of places to rest.

Did this hike a couple days ago, it was a really good one. Waterfall is flowing great and water feels good! However I can back today to hike again and there are Rangers sitting out front of trailhead. Don’t go!

Beautiful hike but trail is “closed” right now and I got stopped by rangers on my way out. People ahead of me even got fined so be wary if you try to go

Easy trail, but really packed at the falls! The top of the waterfall was the best part! Loved this hike, so fun!

Pick up your trash please!

You walk down to the falls and uphill to leave. The morning is best due to barely any shade. The falls and punch bowl are awesome when the waters really flowing.

Very crowded trail, but very easy, dog-friendly, going all downhill on the way there, way back up hill. Waterfall was nice, water was cold, very, very crowded

Beautiful and easy but the amount of trash at the falls is heartbreaking... please pick up what you bring in..

Great short hike with the dogs and views at the top. Pleasantly surprised at how nice it was- we had planned to go to the Barnett Ranch Preserve but there was no parking due to covid restrictions. Glad to have found this little gem. There were a ton of bees though so best to avoid if you are allergic.

Beautiful hike with lots of wildflowers! This is a 2 mile hike down into a canyon (with very limited shade) and another mile with three stream crossings to the falls and swimming hole (so actually 6 miles roundtrip). There were many people at the falls. Bring LOTS of water. You'll especially need it coming back up the canyon to the trailhead. Forest service recommendation is one gallon per person during the summer months. We had only one bottle per person and it was not really enough today (Mother's Day) in the high 70's. Please pack out your trash and leave no trace!!

Easy trail still accessible during Covid with a beautiful waterfall at the end

Technically closed right now but it wasn’t hard to find parking. The trail was still packed. it sounded like I was walking up on a concert once I go to the end. Probably my least favorite hike I’ve been on but the waterfall was beautiful.

I grew up across the street from Dos Picos Park and my family still lives there. The view of the rock face always has had a special allure to me. Me and the other boys on Dos Picos Park Road even shared stories about a witch that lived up there on the rock mountain. We heard "ghost stories" stories about hikers who went up to the top and someone being grabbed when someone's hand (the witch?) reached up through a hole in one of the rocks. These were childish pieces of our imagination, but perhaps why the mountain has held such a special place in my heart. My mother and I first tried to climb the mountain together when I was around 10 years old. We didn't make it that time. However, years later I would end up climbing the mountain several times with friends. It is now May of 2020 and since the Coronavirus has temporarily taken away my employment, I have been been going back to Dos Picos to see family and have climbed to the top 3x during the last month. There are basically 3 main ways of going to the top (that I am.aware of anyway) 1) From a trail that connects to the Iron Mountain trail, starting from the Iron Mountain trailhead. 2) Via an offshoot of the Ernie Pantoja Memorial Trail. 3) Via a private road near the very end of Dos Picos Park Road on the left.

Awesome WATERFALL! Rocks are slippery. River crossing and a good workout. Perfect amount of shade and great for all ages.

This hike definitely seems closed with fine notices posted
