  • Relatively easy hike that is maintained by the National Parks Service, provides nice canyon views and the foot traffic isn't too intense. You can also see the ruins of a famous house that was located....  more »
  • This is an easy hike that is family friendly with beautiful views. It is a short distance from the beach but is fairly secluded and has very different terrains. We enjoyed it.  more »

  • This is the best hike I've had since moving to LA 1.5 years ago. After an arduous 1.5 mile mountain climb and descent you're rewarded with a beautiful waterfall flowing from a rock in a green, tropical oasis located by the ruins of an old mansion destroyed by fire in 1982. I would recommend to anyone looking for something outside of the usual Runyon Canyon and Griffith Park.
  • Beautiful waterfall and creek. There is a lower lot and upper lot. Only park in the lower lot if the upper lot is full because the trail head is where the upper lot is. There is a bit more of a walk from the lower lot. Interesting facts posted about the ruins of Fred Roberts' home. There is a designated trail with fencing around the gorgeous waterfall. Honestly it stops nobody from crossing over it and enjoying a feet dip in the cool water and getting a closer look and feel of the falls. Scenic path. Lots of wildlife and variety of plants. Be aware of some poison oak. We even saw a snake cross the path (not a rattler, although I"m sure they are present too).
