Great trail. Encountered a few snakes but the trail is wide and they crossed quickly. The waterfall was busy even though the path was not. Would definitely come back again in the future.

Loved this trail! Pretty long but not too hard so bring enough water. It was pretty cloudy but not too cool, definitely bring bug spray as there are bugs all the way through. I did encounter some snakes but nothing to serious, just give them their space lol. The waterfall was too crowded, had to cross through the water to get back on trail and let me tell you that water felt amazing!! Would and will come back to better my time (: definitely recommend

Looks like it was just cleared out and cleaned up. fun trail

It’s an ok trail but 1/3 is very urban, you’re literally walking along the back of people’s backyards. It gets very crowded in parts but the people seemed to have decent hike etiquette.

Anyone know if Cowles still closed . Thank you .

Beautiful trail. I would definitely wear different shoes next time, there are a lot of small rocks and gravel throughout the trail that make it a little difficult and uncomfortable. The “waterfall” was a beautiful area to cool off at before heading back. It was crowded but still fun! We found a crawfish in the water! So cool. Thanks for a great trail!

Great trail. Very pretty scenery! Loved the waterfall and little pools that it had to swim in. It is kid friendly to an extent. 90% of the trail was extremely rocky. So may be hard for kids to walk on. Same goes for dogs. Was a flat hike but long. We did about 7 or so miles of walking.

This trail should be called poison oak trail. Probably a way better hike after a good rainy day when there’s more water to see. Took my 3 yr old and a dog and it was more stressful of a hike than fun and relaxing because I didn’t want either of them touching poison oak. Probably will not visit again.

Once you have passed the electric posts (100 yards), the walk is really pleasant and offers really nice views on the ocean and the Laguna mountains. Good hiking shoes are recommended to cross the fields of rocks but the hike remains pretty easy.

We attempted this trail today but the road to the trail head was gated off and said closed. We are military and have IDs but there were no personnel manning the gate. Just closed. You could park nearby and walk the approximately one mile to the trail head...

Good hike... waterfall was a bit crowded but beautiful none the less.

Great trail for beginner riders or to take your girlfriend on. Fun ups downs and straight aways. Mountain bike required for sure.

This was a flat easy trail but not a ton to see on the entire loop except for the waterfall. Waterfall was extremely crowded also which was not ideal during social distancing practices.

Beautiful trail - very easy! Good for a leisurely stroll. We went early, so it wasn’t too crowded.

Great trail! Good workout. Gradual up and gradual down for the most part. Be sure to use your map as mission trails can be confusing. Recommend doing it counter-clockwise.
