It was a good hike and the water fall was great, the water was fresh well i bit cold but worth it because it was a hot day. Their was plenty of youngters. The way back was a little tiring.

Too many people and dirty now. Used to be a nice one but seen it once, won't go back.

great workout and family friendly trail.
There are some small pond crossings and logs to balance across.
Stones to hop keep the children challenged. Bring Water shoes to enjoy the base of the waterfall.
Please be considerate with your dogs on leashes. If you have a dog that likes to bark at others, plan to entertain your dog so that the rest of us can enjoy the fruits of our accomplishments.
purchase parking pass at the liquor store near the 210 fwy exit on Santa Anita before you head up the mountain road.

Hermit Falls is the perfect place for walking/hiking any day of the week; however, it is crowded on the weekend. My pup and I enjoyed ourselves, and had a great time conversing with fellow hikers and dogs. People are friendly and are courteous when there is foot traffic. Unfortunately, the trail is a little messy with leftover rubbish so, you must be cautious for yourself and your pup.
