This seasonal waterfall is reached via an easy walk through rolling coastal hills. This waterfall is no stunner. But these hills are parched much of the year, which makes water, and waterfalls, a sought-after break from the ordinary. The fall is only viable in a wet winter and is especially vigorous after a good rainstorm. And, as with many hikes to less-than-stellar seasonal waterfalls, it’s not so much about the destination as getting there.

This waterfall is no stunner. But these hills are parched much of the year, which makes water, and waterfalls, a sought-after break from the ordinary. The fall is only viable in a wet winter and is especially vigorous after a good rainstorm.
