You will be getting up close to two large and powerful waterfalls that flow all year long. The falls are strongest in spring and early summer and they create a cooling mist that blankets the trail continuously.
In the spring the mist is so strong that you will need to wear your rain gear.
You start the hike by strolling next to the river then you begin your climb until you reach a footbridge. At this bridge, you will get your first glimpse of Vernal Fall. This is a good place for photos, a bathroom break and to fill your water canteens or bottles. There are no more services along the trail.
If you love nature and enjoy a little adventure in your life then you must add Yosemite national park to the top of your must-see list. The national park is located on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and crosses 3 California counties. It spans an area of 761,268 acres (1,200 square miles) of mountains, steep granite cliffs, valleys, rivers, waterfalls, and lakes. It is home to groves of Giant Sequoia trees and many species of plants and animals. It is also home to the American black bear and California brown bears.
Canyon Park is another hidden gem in southern California where you can enjoy nature, have a picnic or go on a hike to a waterfall. Canyon Park is situated at the foothills of San Gabriel Mountains and is operated by the city of Monrovia.
The park offers several picnic areas, educational tours and a nature center. The picnic areas have tables and barbeques. At the Nature Center you can enjoy displays of local flora and wildlife indigenous to Canyon Park. Learn about the early history of the Canyon residents, and the present day natural hazards in visiting a wilderness environment.
At the end of August in Southern California, you don’t expect to find running water and a beautiful cascading waterfall – but that is exactly what we found during our hike through Wildwood Regional Park in Thousand Oaks, California.
Thousand Oaks is situated at the southern end of Ventura County adjacent to Los Angeles County. The area in and around TO, as it is called by its residents, is full of parks and recreational facilities.
Our surprising waterfall was hidden within a deep valley at the park - near Avenida De Los Arboles and North Big Sky Drive intersection. Free parking is available off West Avenida De Los Arboles.
