Good timing is the key to catching the waterfall in Black Star Canyon at its best. Since only about 3 square miles of drainage area lie above it, persistent rains are needed to get more than a dribble of water over the fall. Whether the water is flowing or not, though, the canyon bottom itself is delightful to explore any time the weather is mild.

Nice trail. Winds around, then very steep up to the top. But great view. Many mountain bikers. NO Dogs Allowed.
