San Antonio Heights, California, United States
Hiking | 3.8 miles (19.7 miles away)
A fun hike for hot days.  You will get wet!  There are several waterfalls you must climb.  There are ropes that have been placed to assist in the climb, but it can still be quite tricky due to the slippery rock face.  The first waterfall weeds out a lot of the hikers.  Coming down the waterfalls is quite fun.  They have natural water slides.  We stopped at the 3rd climb but there...

Etiwanda Waterfall Hike
by ladyjayjay on Oct 30, 2011
Rancho Cucamonga, California, United States
Hiking | 3.6 miles (16.3 miles away)
This is a good workout.  I don't know who said that this is just a 950 foot climb, because it's almost 2,000 feet.  You spend the first half of the hiking climbing up and up.  It was a lot harder than I had expected.  The waterfalls are beautiful.  You have to climb higher up to see the really big waterfall. Parking is free and it's easy to find the hiking trail.

Silverado, California, United States
Hiking | 3.2 miles (21 miles away)
We started out pretty late in the day but this time of year I expected no water on the river (there wasn't) and so we figured we would be able to make good time (we did). The opening 2 miles or so are fairly open and sunny, but our late start meant that it was a bit more cool than earlier so the heat/sun wasn't an issue. Once you pass the local...

This was a short hike I did on 16Sep09 through a section of the Cleveland National Forest in Corona.  Parking is available at the trailhead or you can park down the street in the residential area. The trail is all up and down with some fairly steep sections.  I didn't see any wildlife, but did hear coyotes howling in the distance.

Lakeview Hot Springs, California, United States
Hiking | 1.2 miles (15.1 miles away)
Back to California for the first time since our move to Fort Collins. One of the "must do's" was to hike to the top of Bernasconi again. With as much rain as they got this year the surrounding hills are as green as I have ever seen them. I figured the normal trail we would take to the top would be fairly grown over since few people make it to the top...
