Description

Cooper Canyon Falls is a beautiful, year-round, multi-tier sylvan waterfall. Get here early, before the L.A. crowds show up, and it is one of the most peaceful, idyllic settings around. To reach the base of the falls, continue on the PCT to where it crosses Little Rock Creek. Go west (the direction you came) down the stream on a well used path then keep left at the fork and head upstream a short distance to the falls. Do not attempt to climb down the cliff face to reach the falls as this is both dangerous and causes damage to the slope and trail above it.

Short Run: 1.5 miles from the Burkhart Trail trailhead at Buckhorn Campground.

Minor Issues
Update
Some Mud, Icy - Some ice still in shadier portions of the trail. Rock slides in one section is the biggest concern currently. The trail gets very loose and narrow in one section.
