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.

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.

Went here with my 9month old and husband. I carried our baby in a kangaroo pack. We had never been here before and thought we’d give it a try. There are trail maps for those looking for a bit more adventure. I went on a Wednesday at about 3pm and there was a moderate amount of people. Along our trail to paradise falls there was plenty of beautiful scenery to look out at. We ended up walking down to the waterfall and made our way back the same way we went in.

Easy hike, great trails

Awesome hike, great trails, spend 3 hours Great directions and signs to follow lots of wildlife rabbits , birds, a must hike for every levels, during the spring and summer bring lots of water,

China Flat semi loop w/Semi Peak. 6.1 miles total. If you're interested in this check out the recording under the China Flat Trail 3/18/18. Started 1400 King James Court and went up China Flat trail, then to Simi Peak trail. On the way back we to took Suicide Trail back to China Flat. It was a sunny but really nice day. Not too warm and every once in a while got just a tad chilly. But really it was perfect. This would be really tough on a hot day, there is just a couple of small spots with shade. Beautiful views.We were able to see mountain tops with snow (one of which should be Mt. Baldy but i can't tell) and also channel islands.

This is great for a quick hike/trail run. Especially if you take the longer trail.

Just Beautiful!!

Really a nice hike.

Very crowded on a Sunday morning, which was to be expected for such a nice trail that wasn’t too difficult and you are rewarded with the waterfall at the bottom!

Rather easy , even for an active senior..

This is a great trail. It is strenuous and adventurous. There are places where you need to go over boulders and rock faces.

It is a bit confusing to find the trailhead, but the direction on all trails is accurate.

The arch towards the end and Simi peak are great places for photograph. There are also multiple places for photos all along the trail.

Fun trail, but heavily trafficked.

No lake anywhere in site. Pretty boring, you just walk along tract homes

Great hike, trail is well marked and we'll maintained; there is also a water fountain for drinking water near a shaded area. However, very crowded at times and you cant jump in the water due to contamination. Beware of rattle snakes. on the plus side there are a few tables for lunch near the falls.

Nice regional hiking park with modestly improved trails and some educational facilities. Several access roads allow nearly direct insertion to several points in park. Sewage treatment plant is located about 3/4 mile downstream of Paradise Falls. A lot of elevation change so I would rate this one as moderate. Be in good health when attempting!

Great trail Santa Rose to T.O n back

Great hike beautiful water falls, we did 6 miles from Santa Roses to T.O, and back very enjoyable a must hike

Went last Saturday, with my wife,our 4, 8 and 21 year olds and our friends who had a 9 year old. We had a great time did the loop and came back up Indian Wells trail. The kids did great with the inclines. Beautiful waterfall and not too muddy which was a plus with the kids. Loved all the ducks down in the creek beds. It was a little crowded but I guess that is a good thing see people out hiking and enjoying nature!

Short, easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end. Weekends get pretty busy so if you want to get there and be alone and not have a million kids screaming, get there bright and early!

Cute hike to a cute waterfall.

Great hike. Just remember that what goes down must come up. Be sure to read the signs.

Not a good trail

The waterfall is gorgeous today.☺

Nice hike with lots of ups and downs. The waterfall was really pretty tucked in a shady canyon. I can’t imagine doing this one in any other season but winter—it would be blazing hot with no shade! My husband remembers hiking this on field trips as a kid in the brutal sun. We had a great time doing a hike outside of Utah on a pretty, sunny, winter day.
