escondido canyon waterfalls

  • escondido waterfall meeting point

hike Leader: fearless leader jose.

Ok the last time we took people here everybody liked it especially those
crazy souls who were goin to the upper falls
This place is escondido canyon waterfalls. This is a very easy hike
in terms of difficulty. Except for those who are dumb enough, oops i
mean adventurous enought o go to the upper falls
The problem is that it is far away and the parking
is limited. But the destination is great we will hike to a beautiful 60 foot
waterfall. it is big flowing covered with moss and just a lovely place to go.

When: March 28,2010 9:30am

Hike level: beginner 3 out of 10, 2 1/2 hours 4 miles, 500 feet gain and loss

Directions: From where ever you are get to the 10 freeway. Go west on the 10 freeway
til it ends santa monica. It becomes pacific coast highway(highway 1)
Your going to on Pacific coast highway til you reach Malibu. That is going to be a while.
You will turn right on winding way Road. Once you make a right the parking lot where
we meet is on the left side. If the parking lot is full park on the streets around the area
that let you park there.

What to bring; Water, dress for weather, snack, hiking shoes

Hike description: First we will walk on the streets to get to the trailhead.
I guess these rich S.O.B's don't want us parking in thier neighborhoods.
Anyways once we get to the trailhead we will walk on a very easy trail
following a stream til we get to the waterfalls. Then we will return the same way.
BTW there is a 80 foot waterfalls right above this one, but to reach it you have to
climb a very scary and treacherous trail. Bascially you have to be part monkey to reach it.
We won't go to it , but I will show the way to anyone stupid enough to go to it.

Dogs ok but on a leash at all times

Email me if you have any questions

    Really wonderful group of people. The hike was good, not hard at all....except for the second tier of the waterfall, that was kinda difficult, couldn't make it all the way up. I WILL next time tho. Looking forward to Smugglers Cove next week. Thanks you Jose for a terrific day!

    Fantastic hike; Jose was a great leader and even "saved" some of us from an untimely demise when returning from the "upper falls", some of us decided to take a short cut down which ended in an ?ft cliff drop! See you soon, Jose!

    robert it is the first winding way road on the right side.
    click on the blue words "Escondido waterfall meeting point "
    above under the location and to the right of the date.
    A pop up window should open with a little map showing the
    exact meeting place. when you get there you should see a little parking lot right next to the intersection
