Calm and beautiful on a Sunday evening!

Fairly easy hike through beautiful terrain. Our dog loved it :)

Awesome views and easy to navigate. Not much shade along trails until you hit the teepee and the waterfall. Arrived around 11 AM on a Monday and did not run into very many people. Bring water and sunscreen! And be sure to pick up after your four legged friends.

Not much shade until you hit the waterfall but overall, it’s a fun hike!

Great trail! Relaxing waterfall and scenery. They hike back up was a bit challenging. :) Bring water and a hat. Very limited shade.

Fun Hike! Bring your hat, sun glasses and sunscreen not very much shade on the trail. kid friendly! We brought our 3 1/2 year old daughter. She loved it and walked the whole way.

This is an exposed hike with only about 1/4 mile oak covered. Not a great hike for a sunny summer day. In the summer their are some wild flowers, but most vegetation is dried up and dead looking due to lack of rain. There are no views of the ocean from the top.
There were some moronic bike riders on the trail; flying past us doing 15-20 miles an hour.
It's called the Los Padres Trail but you are following signs for the Los Robles Trail most of the time.

Not any shade, didn’t feel particularly easy, but still a great hike with great views.

Great views. Fairly easy terrain if you take the path that overlooks the waterfall back, otherwise it's a decent uphill walk.

I love it. It’s a good morning exercise trail

Fun hike! There are some good hills (a little steep) and the trails are well marked. We went with a baby in a baby carrier and a five year old and it was perfectly strenuous without being overwhelming.

Fun hike, cool waterfall. Rattlesnakes out.

One of the best in the area; kid-friendly as well. Try to come on a weekday morning, early, for the best shot at solitude and quiet.

We didn't do the full loop. Someone had told us where to find fossils, so we ventured onto the ridges to look. We went on 6/9/18....there were a TON of Rattlesnakes. We saw one about 6-7 feet, we also saw one that was about 1 foot, so younger. Be very careful with your kids and pets! They were directly on the main trail. One was in a hole... keep your kids hands out of holes. We did have fun on the hike, and did get to see some fossils. There is very limited shade, so keep that in mind. This seems like it would be a fun sunset hike.

This hike was awesome! Seriously there’s so many different trails I’d have to come back several times to try them all out. Bring plenty of water & have fun!

Cannot go into the water due to contamination. This was unfortunate, but a pretty place.

My boyfriend and I loved it!! beautiful hike and waterfall. We got surprise when we saw ducks at the fall. Highly recommend!!!!

Road wide enough for a BOB stroller. brought 2 babies along ...they loved it

My friend and I enjoyed this hike! It’s easy and falls are beautiful. Lots of people hike this so parking can become difficult to find. I recommend arriving earlier, doesn’t offer much shade until you get close to the falls. Great for bikes and dogs.

Nice trail with a little waterfall. The way out is all uphill. There’s picnic tables if you keep going past waterfall.

nice trailrunning, beautiful views

Not a bad trail, although it’s hard to feel that you’ve escaped when you see and hear the power lines most of the way. Nice view at the top though.

Beautiful walk to the top and bottom of waterfall. A lot of traffic on the weekends and can get super hot. Take extra water.

Great for dogs! Good parking and beautiful bridge entrance.

The waterfall and creek contain urban run off which is unfortunate. Lots of people too.

Hiked this trail and loved it. I only saw one other person the entire time. The views at the top are fantastic.

Really nice hike. We didn't see many people on the hike and you go through some interesting areas.
