“Eaton Canyon Falls Disappointing”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We had a beautiful fall day to hike up Eaton Canyon and the walk was good, but you hike the last half-mile over river rocks and boulders as the description indicates. However at this time of year (this year at least), the stream has dried up mostly and the waterfall is barely a stream.
So, a good fall hike, but depends on your expectations at the end?

“Hiking on the rocks”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

This is a splendid park for walking on a creek bed full of rocks in the shade of a verdant valley. The payoff is the modest falls at the end of the trail.

“Walk worth experiencing”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Taking 30 cadets up the canyon was a thrill, especially meeting locals out walking. Watch for pet owners who do not clean up after their pets, but the views were so nice, the higher you go the better. Only the serious make it to Henninger Flats.

“A hike to a waterfall you can't really interact with”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The hike is ok, it's not difficult, but there could be more shade during the first half. The view during the hike isn't anything special. The waterfall at the end is nice, but I wasn't satisfied because there is only 1 thing to see, it isn't amazing enough to stand on it's own, and you can't jump off of it unless you want to risk dying the way many people who have tried did.

It's a good way to kill time if you live in this area, but I wouldn't make a trip out for it.

“HIKE!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

So easy to get to the base of the trail. Park and get going! Moderately challenging with both uphill and flat trails. Not a "loop" trail, so just turn around when you have had enough. Great views within 30 minutes or so.
