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.

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...

Solid trail, not too crowded. Keep your eyes open for bikes as they seemed to be more of the traffic and may not be in the habit of calling out warnings!

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

Didn’t complete this trail. Turned back after 5 minutes. Trail is narrow and overgrown with bushes and plants that you have to fight your way through.

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.

Got caught under the sun on the way back. Go early. Heard a few rattle snakes be careful.

Fun and beautiful hike. Pretty short and easy but has some serious elevation gain to get out of the canyon which might be tricky for kids. It also seems to be a mountain biking spot so be aware.

Went out and back from the Ruffin Rd entrance to the Shawn Canyon trailhead. Short hike, but terrain is varied enough to keep things interesting. Good for younger kids ready to level up.

I’d definitely agree with a “difficult” rating. Such an awesome trail but take the first run down slowly because you could possibly puncture your skin with a wound of some sort from rocks, dirt, or bushes.

An easy path and a harder path. Follow the power lines for a steeper challenge

A spicy way to get back and forth to the falls. Steep decent with loose rocks, not a ton of shade but view is great.

Great trail. Very flat until the falls. Nice walk out. Lots of people and dogs. The actual falls were pretty crowded but you can climb to an open spot. $3 for parking!

This was a very nice trail, not overgrown on May 30, 2020. Good for kids (9y, 5y and 3y). All of them walked. A little rocky at times. Parking was not obvious so we parked across the street by the apartment complexes. There was only one other person and their son the entire time we were here. There is a tree at the end to have a picnic under.
