Trail shared by John McKinney

Less than a mile to waterfall.

Description

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.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
