This is a Moderate trail. A short almost 3 mile to 4 mile round-trip depending on what route you take. Very scenic. The natural vegetation, the trees and flowers that fill up the place, countless birds and butterflies all for a treat to your eyes.You...More

The hike to Paradise Falls does take some effort, but the payoff is worth the exertion. The trails are well groomed and signage is plentiful, so there's no danger of getting lost. There are a few fairly steep uphills but plenty of room to pull...More

The hike to Paradise Falls isn't terribly straining, but realize that it is all uphill from the Falls. There is a few places to rest and reenergize if needed. Such as the huge wooden tepee or picnic tables near the falls. I went during a...More

If you aren't an avid hiker, don't worry. Last time I hiked to the falls there was a 4 year old with us. She hiked the whole way. Word to the wise, it is uphill on the way back from the waterfall, so save some...More

You have to possess a certain degree of fitness to get to the falls. The trails are a little untamed in places and can be challenging if you struggle with distance. The route(s) to the falls is pretty well signposted. I went in midweek in...More

This is a nice trail. Maybe not for beginner but not too difficult either and you can just take your time. This one is a hike for the family and the waterfall is nice but don't expect something big like in Hawaii :-)

After reading the previous reviews we ventured to try this trail, it is a beautiful area! But this isn't a beginner trail and the trail isn't level. There is very minimal shade. There is constant hills up and down. Even going down you have to...More

My wife and I read about this hike and decided to try it before we went to Santa Barbara County for wine tasting. It was around 10:30 AM when we started, but I would suggest starting the hike around 9:00 AM to beat the heat....More

The hike to Paradise Falls is great because it's not too challenging or tiring but it's a fun hike and the view once you get to the falls is just gorgeous

Avoid on weekends, holidays and hot days. 30 years ago I rated this park and waterfall excellent. It has become, over the years, very popular so the outdoor experience is blemished by the crowds.

If it is a sturdy stoller. I wouldn't try it with an umbrella stroller. It's a decently maintained trail and not too bumpy, but it's still a hiking trail. I did Paradise Falls and Lizard Rock, and meandered over a couple... More

Unfortunately, no. You can probably make it about 1/2 way then the trail won't work. The easy part can even get slippery from the dirt over rock.
