Nice LONG walk! Not crowded.

Easy hike, wide trails without much elevation gain. Great for beginners, family outings, or getting back into it. A fair amount of other hikers, including horses. Not enough to be crowded, but enough to know you're not going to be forgotten and eaten by mountain lions.

Great little nature walk.

Flat trail but next to a creek and a wooded area with shade and sometimes the trail is single track

Very scenic trail,mostly flat until you reach the waterfall. Great place to go on a nice easy walk. Plenty of bikers and moms with strollers and kids. Easy going trail.

Did the hike with my son and we both enjoyed it. My only complaint is certain sections are really close to the road. Still fun tho

Super easy and mostly flat until you hit the waterfall. It is very family friendly, but not too busy!

It was a nice trail to walk with additional trails to take and some historic information. The waterfall feature didn’t seem so prominent but that could be because there hasn’t been any rain. Overall it is a great hike and do recommend it.

Very easy hike, with beautiful scenery through the canyon!

it's an ok trail. It's flat, and there isn't much to see. The "waterfall" isn't much, but it's a nice area to do almost any activity and the 7 mile length is nice.

Great views with easy access.

Was looking for something easy today and it worked.

A lot of the trail was next to the road on a narrow path. It made me and my dog a little uneasy as the cars were going 30-40 mph. We did enjoy the parts that weren’t next the road. Probably won’t do this one again, but will explore other options in Balboa Park.

Easy walk, but beautiful views!

Very well managed trail, moderate traffic with a good mix of cyclists, runners, and walkers. Loved seeing the number of dog enjoying nature as well.

Very nice area for day hikes. The waterfall is interesting. I used the access on the south rim about half way through the park at the Camino Ruiz park.

Lots of different terrain, very pretty. Easy river crossing, but a little tricky with our dog. Not well marked, but alltrails map will keep you on course.
