This was a rewarding and beautiful hike! I don't know how much today's scenery represents that typical of the trail, as this was an exceptionally wet winter/spring in So Cal and there were more waterfalls and greenery than I am accustomed to here. My year old daughter picked it out for me as a mother's day present knowing my love of hiking. Once we finally reached the falls, she and her sister (age 7) were too beat to climb all of the way back up and over the peak. So, we went out via the quarry which according to the trails.com guide is open on Sundays only, but actually it is only open SATURDAYS. So, we had to talk our way around a security guard to pass through that way. It was a fantastic trip, though, and although tough it was within the abilities of a 7 and 9 year old girl. If you hike it on a Saturday you can either catch a shuttle through the quarry to the trail head and come out through the Fish Canyon Trail or, better, hike in the hard way and out to the shuttle the easy way.
