Tenaja Falls High Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"When the Southland is blessed with a rainy, rainy season, Tenaja Falls spills over granite ramparts with great vigor. With five tiers and a drop of some 150 feet, it’s a large waterfall, particularly in comparison to other falls in the Santa Ana Mountains. Tenaja’s size is all the more a delightful surprise considering its locale: a rather dry section of the Cleveland National Forest near the boundary of Orange and Riverside counties. Some hikers claim Tenaja Falls is the most intriguing natural highlight of the national forest, and even in that crown jewel of the mountains— the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness."
