Big Falls is one of the most popular trail hikes around here, it’s so super easy to get to and yes this means you will see some ghetto people here, like a lot of them.
Expect crowds, expect litter, but also expect to see a awesome glorious water fall if you brave the steep hike up the hill to the Big Falls.
Be careful doing this hike what ever season you do it in; last week my friend J slipt on the upper falls and fell fifteen feet down the slippery falls! Amazingly she is okay!
Details for the Big Falls Hike
Sunscreen, snacks, 1 liter of water
First aid kit, wide brimmed hat, water shoes
A few hundred feet
There are signs pointing down stream to the Big Falls trail head to the left. Take the trail to where it meets the creek and go up the little path.
The path ends after a few hundred feet and you have to kind of make your own path up the falls. The left side is the easiest way to go.
Stop for lunch afterwards at Casa Maya in Mentone,
Helgas Sugar Shack or good old A & W Hamburgers on Mentone Blvd.
There is also a fruit stand on the North side of the road on Mentone Blvd that has amazing candy, produce and dried fruit.
