We took a picnic and sat beside the stream below the falls. We greeted and visited with other hikers at the falls while we soaked up the negative ions. There is a small hidden pool just above head level and a little cave behind the falls. It is possible to hike to the top of the falls but we didn't... More

It was a very long drive from Ojai to the Rose Valley Campground. Not much there. A short hike along the creek and suddenly you are there. Perhaps, because it is summer, but the falls was just a trickle of water along a small cliff of rocks.We were very disappointed.

We drove up there on a cloudy day, and the winding road along the mountain had breathtaking views. We made several stops on the way just to take in the view, and it was so quiet that you can hear a car coming from far away. Yes the drive is a bit far from Ojai, but totally worth it! The... More

After reading about things to do in Ojai, this was #2 on the list. We rode up on our motorcycle. The ride was beautiful with yellow foilage along the mountainside, it is springtime. The hike is easy with a gradual uphill, 1/2 mil round trip. During this time, the falls were trickling, not gashing, the other waterfall next to it... More

This is a great little hike. It's about half a mile and you do end up climbing up hill quite a bit to get tot he falls so you burn some calories. The falls are sweet and nice and you can scramble up some of the rocks. When we were there, there was a couple having a picnic at the... More

I was over 7 months pregnant when we tried this trail and it was the perfect length. I wanted to get some exercise and see at least one of the pretty nature hikes Ojai had to offer while my husband and I were on our baby moon, but I was told not to overdo it by my doctors. This was... More

Beautiful short hike. It was a bit of a drive, but a great find. In Feb. 2016, there was a bit of water in the falls (but not enough to swim)

The long drive seemed to weed out a lot of the crowds. The hike was short and shaded, so it would be great for families. If you can avoid using the restroom at the campground, it is probably for the best.

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.
