I visited today...I really liked the beautiful scenery. Hidden Trail Access led us to the water fall. I loved it!!!

Very pretty trail. Too short for my tastes, but if you're close to the area, it's a nice morning hike. We got there around 8:15 and it was perfect. We were able to pull in the ranger area/trail head to park. Didn't feel strenous, but calves were sore the next day. Make sure to take the little dirt path up on top, before you hit the lake. Gorgeous view of the dam!

probably one of the most relaxing trails I've been on. only saw about 6 people the entire 2 hours. so peaceful. loved seeing the little bridge and waterfall out of nowhere and a lot of open site seeing views! a few challenging little climbs but all in all we ran the trail on all open areas. pretty gem :)

easy nice hike. A lot of traffic if you go late afternoon. You walk along side of the river underneath Foresthill Bridge which leads to a beautiful damn. pretty wide open the entire time

5 stars for moderate hikers looking for a short to mid length hike.

Trail begins on forest hill road. I couldn't find clementine trailhead on google maps but you can google maps "black hole of Calcutta trailhead" and maps will direct you just a minute away from the clementine trail head.

You hike along the river, underneath a huge bridge and to the dam. The dam is incredible and the more adventurous can climb around the damn,finding some incredible shots

Bring your bathing suit! There was a lot of foot traffic and a few mountain bikers on a Sunday.

Easy trail towards the overlook. Very shady most of the trail. Nice family friendly trail for young kids, dogs and all ages. Go early because trail can get pretty busy with hikers and bikers and horses.
