A nice day hiking

A good nature hike with lots of things to see and do.You can take a casual hike and a hike to the falls to take a little swim in the cool water.

Admittedly, I agree most of other reviews. For instance, it is easy to hike etc. Whereas, the point I want to emphasize is that it is a wonderful place to explore some new routes and the winter is a special season for the water fall because water changes into ice, which becomes another view.

Going to the Falls Trail involves a beautiful drive through the Los Padres National Forest. It can be made part of other hikes for the day as it's really just a short walk to the waterfall.

Great hike for the whole family. It is quite a drive to get there but once you start the hike, it is great. Like being in a hidden forest. Loved it.

One of the best hiking spots in southern California, from mountains to rivers to sandstone peaks this place has a little bit of everything. This place is also great for backpacking but we only come here for day hikes.

We biked up the 18 miles to the Rose Valley and even farther up where you can see the Channel Islands on a clear day. It was a hard and hot bike ride, but worth the views. And the downhill back to Ojai was fantastic.

Rose Valley Falls Trail is a family friendly beginners hike past several waterfalls and gorgeous scenery. A wonderful afternoon for couples, families, or some happy alone time in nature.

This summer was bad due to low water but nature views are great. Lots of bugs and mosquitoes & so be prepared.
