The destination of this hike is the waterfall at the midpoint of Los Penasquitos Canyon. You’ll enjoy the characteristic openness of this end of the canyon best if you come here on a cool day; the wide main trail stays well away from the stream most of the time, and it is fully exposed to the sun. Try this hike sometime on a summer evening: Plan to reach the falls by sunset, and return by the light of the moon.
