Trail shared by John McKinney

A short out-and-back hike to San Antonio Falls.

John McKinney

Features Waterfall

Do not attempt to climb the falls.

Overview

This brief hike up a fire road takes users up to the impressive three-tiered 60-foot falls.

Description

From the parking area, head north on Mt. Baldy Road, a fire road with an easy grade. At 0.5 miles, the road turns to head back south; at this northern point, hikers will have a nice view of the falls, but the adventurous can reach the bottom of the falls by following a rough trail further north.

Do not try to climb the falls.

After a grand ol' time taking in the views at the falls, head back the way you came.
