Escondido Falls Hike Reviews & Ratings

  • Trail is pretty nice! Around 2 mi to get to the first waterfall. Don’t expect a lot of water during the summer, but the view is still great. It can get pretty hot so make sure to take that into consideration. The only thing not so great about it is there’s only a small parking lot which charges 8 bucks per day and after that they walk is at least half mile to get to the trail.

  • Amazing trail, going to the first water fall is super easy. The challenge is getting to the upper one. I wasn't able to do it because I didn't have proper gear. Maybe next time

  • The hike to get to the falls is a bit hilly, but any well-prepared beginner can complete it (be sure to bring lots of water!). There is a small paid parking lot ($8) that was CASH ONLY and exact change required.

  • This is a decent hike for a short bit of exercise with a dog but it is always quite crowded. They now charge for parking in the small lot. I have not been in quite some time so I don't know when it started or how much because I usually park on the street. The area around the falls is kind of dirty and gross. It is quite scenic on the way up with the houses and views.

  • Great place to hike for all ages. Beautiful view of pacific ocean. Covered all around by trees and for those who want a challenge second waterfall is worth it but be careful, loose rocks and dirt.
