A THREE LEVEL, 100 FOOT FALLS AT THE END OF A GREEN, TREE-FILLED CANYON.
DISTANCE: 5.5 miles. elevation gain: 836 feet, or so....
THIS IS NOT ONE OF MY USUAL ROCK SCRAMBLING HIKES AS THE OFF TRAIL AREAS HAVE LOTS OF POISON OAK AND THE FALLS ARE STRAIGHT UP.
AFTER HIKE DINNER AND SUPER BOWL CHEERING OF THE LAST QUARTER: I AM OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS, ALTHOUGH THE SPAGHETTI FACTORY IS PRETTY COOL.
VIDEO OF THE FALLS:
Take the 210 freeway to the Mount Olive Drive offramp going north. Turn right at Huntington Parkway (east). In a half a mile, turn left onto Encanto Parkway. The sign here is easy to miss. If you cross a bridge over a dry riverbed, you just missed the turn. For the next mile, you will pass a green park on the left. On your right is a raised landscaped levee along the river. Stay to the right at two separate forks in the road. You will pass signs saying "Vulcan Materials" gravel mine. At the last fork in the road is a dirt parking lot.
THE USUAL STUFF:
BRING ALL THE USUAL STUFF, I'M NOT YOUR MOM....
Bring clothing (sorry, nude hikes are a different Meetup group), lots of water--2 liters, hat, comfy shoes, snacks, all your troubles..., camera, etc
LEGAL STUFF: by going on this hike, you agree to assume all risks of this hike, and that no one at Meetup including the organizer is responsible for your safety. See the Meetup terms of service especially paragraph 6.2:
