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.

Fir, ponderosa, and Jeffery pine are in the area.

Heading over to the San Antonio Falls. Not the main event but well worth the detour from the Mt. Baldy trail!
