River/Creek · Waterfall · Wildlife
A short, easy trail that is only 0.6 miles long from the junction with Canyon Trail
, to a 15-foot tall waterfall. The trail, lined with big cone spruce and coastal live oak, has a gentle grade that climbs through Los Pinetos Canyon. The trail ends at the waterfall, which after a rain has quite an impressive flow; however, during drier months, there may be no flow at all.
