Bonita Falls in Lytle Creek: 100 Foot Waterfall Near Rancho Cucamonga

As far as waterfalls in Southern California go I have seen a lot. I think if I had to pick a favorite though, Bonita Falls would probably be it. This majestic waterfall falls over 100 feet which by Southern California standards is massive. It is a great example of the gems that are oft missed […]

Tahquitz Canyon Falls: Palm Springs 50ft Waterfall

Even after the dry last two years, you can still get out on the trail and see some of the awesome Southern California waterfalls. A perfect example of that is this 50-foot beauty located on the south end of Palm Springs. Even with an admission cost (yep, there is a cost) this waterfall is worth […]

The Big List of Southern California Waterfalls

I have written extensively on my favorite hikes here, but this list is of the lesser known amazing waterfalls that are all over Southern California. When I tell people this, they always tell me they had no idea, and that is what I am looking to fix. Even if you don’t like hiking, who doesn’t […]

Tenaja Falls: 150 Foot Tiered Waterfall in Cleveland National Forest

On my quest to document the waterfalls of Southern California I came across this gem that is pretty far hidden from the normal trails and roads that hikers take and getting to the trail head is half the battle as it includes 5 miles down a one lane road that is not really maintained. If you make […]

Etiwanda Falls: North Etiwanda Preserve

With the hike to Sapphire Falls becoming harder and harder to easily get to, I wanted to spotlight some of the other close waterfalls that are just as awesome but less surrounded in legal problems. The first on this list is Etiwanda Falls above the Etiwanda Nature Preserve. Check out my review and how to […]

Whiskeytown Falls: A Hidden Waterfall

The State Park of Whiskeytown is about 15 miles outside of Redding and has a ton of stuff to do. It surronds a huge and beautiful lake that has beaches, hiking and water sports for every member of the family. When I went there, I went for one of the widely recognized “best waterfalls in […]

Ewoldsen Trail: Hiking in the Redwoods of Big Sur

If you didn’t know, I am a huge fan of Big Sur. If I could pick two places to live out my days in California, I would have to say it would be Big Sur and Yosemite, both are as good as California gets. There is just so much beauty in the small stretch of […]

McCloud Falls: Visiting all Three Tiers of the Waterfall off Highway 89

After visiting McAurther-Burney Falls, we decided to head up Highway 89 and see the McCloud Waterfalls before stopping at the Black Bear Diner for lunch in Mt Shasta. McCloud Falls was a waterfall that I had seen pictures of but had a hard time getting any real information online about it or how to get […]

McArthur-Burney Falls: A Mesmerizing Waterfall in Northern California

I don’t get up to Northern California more than a couple of times a year so I have been waiting for about 3 months in order to see the ridiculously amazing McAurther-Burney Falls. I had seen tons of pictures and only hoped that when I saw it in real life it would be as amazing […]

Escondido Falls Hike in Malibu: A Beautiful Three Tiered Waterfall

Escondido Falls is one of the best hikes along the entire coast of Malibu. The hike itself is a relatively easy 4 miles round trip, but it leads you to one of the best waterfalls in Southern California. The waterfall has three tiers, one that is easy to access and two more that should only be […]
