A couple of weekends ago I did this short hike with my dad who was visiting from Argentina. This is a short easy 3-mile round trip walk in the Angeles National Forest, close to Mount Wilson. Aside from a bit of elevation change at the beginning (and end since it is round trip) of the trail, it is mostly flat the rest of the way. This is Hike #41 from the book Trails of the Angeles: 100 Hikes in the San Gabriels by John W. Robinson.
On the way to the falls, there were a good number of small cabins. I found it amazing that just minutes from busy LA you can own a cabin and live in such a contrasting environment, away from traffic and fast pace of life.
The whole trail is very beautiful, peaceful, and pleasant since the abundance of tall trees provide plenty of shade for most of its 3 mile distance.
