    Nice easy incline. Had two 4 year olds that made it with no problem. Want to come back after a good rain.

    great trail. Went with my kids 8 and 12 they had a blast. Was very crowded so go early or during the week. Nothing too challenging but a great waterfall at the end.

    This trail receives only three stars because of the horse feces on the trail and because of the dog owners who do not leash their dogs.

    The trail is super easy and flat. To get to the waterfall, hikers must cross the creek about 6-8 times. Hiking near the creek will reveal remnants of the old neighborhood--water mains and fire hydrants sticking out from the washed away areas.

    An easy scenic kid and dog-friendly — but crowded — 3.84 mile mike to one of Los Angeles County’s most popular waterfalls. (Date hiked: May 29, 2010.) Read the full write-up at: http://www.greeneadventures.com/2011/02/21/eaton-canyon-falls-easy-and-crowded-but-well-worth-hiking/

    The first part of this hike is pretty hot and the trees are few and far between. The trail is well marked but it is a little bit deceiving. Keep walking, the stream looks like it has gone dry but once you reach the waterfall there is a 2-3 foot deep pool waiting for you. Over all I think this hike would be a lot better durring the spring time. The 90-100 degree summer temperatures can be a little overwhelming.
