Unexpected forest with creek and waterfall

Nice little spot to go when you need to get away from the hot and dry of Southern California. Moderate trail that is an easy hike from where you park your car.

First i will start with the drive. Its about 18 miles deep into the mountains past Ojai. The drive itself is beautiful winding up in the mountains with great views of the Valley. There is nothing much up there so make sure to get gas before hand. The trail is located in the Los Padres National Forest. The hike to... More

You just want to stay a while!!! Bring a lunch/breakfast...snack etc. When you get here you just want to explore and be around the falls. The falls are flowier at different times of year but are special and lovely regardless! Great for kids...as it's a short hike.

Met some friends hiking to the Falls on a mtorcycle ride with my future wife. Nice and easy trail that is easy to get to and is nestled off some of the best scenic roads with lots of nice twisties. December 2011.

The scenery is great, bathrooms on site, a short easy walk to the waterfall. The kids love to play in the water. Watch for snakes though!

I loved this short easy hike to a lovely waterfall. The trail is easy to follow and a popular hike. At the end is a beautiful waterfall and rocks to sit down on to take it all in. Bring a picnic and sit for a while . It's great for families.

This is a beautiful and short walk with many trees providing shade along the dirt path. I come here almost every year when I visit Ojai with friends, and I'm never disappointed. I came here in July and there was still a little bit of water coming down. Very pretty place to take pictures with the falls covered in moss... More

This hike is a comfortable 2-mile round trip hike, so it is very doable for most people. My daughter was pregnant, so we opted for this. Also, Ojai has a tendency to be very hot; and this hike, surprisingly, was shaded 90% of the time with a wooded surrounding. Very pleasant, very safe, it ends in some caves and waterfalls... More
