Entrance is just to the West of the Candy Store. Nice easy hike. A steep scramble to the top. Well marked. Clear sunny day. Saw Channel Island, down town LA and lots of other mountains.

The falls are in full view from the trail head. Took about 15 minutes to make it down. It was quick and very easy there and back. I thought with all the snow that fell last week, we would see a great water fall but only a trickle. Still great little hike.

This is a great trail and it is not overused. I hiked here last weekend after the rainfall we had in the area, but I am happy it was not muddy. There were several areas where waterfalls once appeared, but due to the drought there aren't any waterfalls currently. I felt the trail was easy when starting from the side where the San Juan loop information sign is located, but then about 1/2 mile to home stretch after passing the picnic area you have some incline to work with. This was my first time hiking this trail and it was great, had beautiful weather, and good for all ages to explore. There are restrooms, no water inside to wash your hands but you'll find a water pump just to the left near the parking stalls. The candy store across has drinks, snacks, organic candies, sandwiches, hiking maps and the owner is really a sweetie.

Hit this trail earlier this afternoon with my kids, 11, 7, and 5, it was a fun hike and got a little tricky at times for the youngest one but he enjoyed climbing up the rocky sections. I enjoyed watching them navigate the trails and pretending to be pirates in search of the hidden treasure chest, afterwards they got their rewards at the Candy Store across the street from the trail entrance.

The hike was good, the views are pretty good as well, however I found myself gathering garbage most of the day. Apparently people find it difficult to pack out what they pack in.

I did the south section of this trail. The trail was easy, that is if the highest and drop offs don't unnerve you. I was heading to the Wildomar OHV trail from Ortega hwy. I only did 6 mils of this trail and decided to turn back as it was getting late.
