The best time to hike here is definitely the spring as there is greenery. Also after a rain is pretty cool as the falls will likely be flowing for a day or two.

Nice hike. Wasn’t easy. Don’t go on a hot day, not a lot of shade. Was about 100 today😐No water falling today but a nice outing. Wear a lot of sunscreen and wear good hiking shoes!

One of my favorite hikes after the rain! Great view and has a serene atmosphere. May need wading boots to get through the creek when water is flowing.

Beautiful place, very natural, very quiet. fresh air . I recommend it for family outings. The only bad thing is that there are no shops if one wants water or something to eat

Visit in the Winter or Sprimg months. A beautiful view and remarkably novel experience. The canyon is an oven in the summer months and the water is not running during that time.

Roadside parking is sparse, and you need decent shoes to hike in - I also recommend viewing Tenaja Falls during wetter weather, lest you find a trickle rather than a torrent. For the best viewing experience visits tend to be muddy. Setting that aside, such...More
