  • Family and dog friendly hiking trails with a waterfall. Most of the trails could accommodate a stroller but near the waterfall there are stairs down to the water and a narrow path up to view the falls above. There are water fountains for drinking near​ the falls and there are bathrooms at the nature center. There is also an Indian cave you can climb stairs to reach.
  • Beautiful hike and waterfall. Not too kid friendly due to lack of area to hang out at the falls but easy to access from the parking lot. We did a quick loop...hit the falls, Indian caves and teepee all in under 3 hours.
  • So pretty here. One of my favorite places in Thousand Oaks. Great for hiking, worth the view, but your legs will be very sore the next day!
  • awesome sunday afternoon hike. abt 2-3hrs needed to include some time to play.
  • The parking lot was near full at around 5:00pm but I was able to find parking. At the parking lot there is also a port-a-potty bathroom if you think you need to unload before the hike. I spent about 2 minutes in front of the billboard trying to memorize the trail and the turns I needed to take to get to Paradise Falls but in hindsight, this was unnecessary. The trails are really well marked, not to mention this is such a popular trail that there is bound to be someone to ask if you feel you're lost. In addition, there seems to be cell signal (Verizon) all throughout. I did hear some rangers talking about snakes but I didn't see any on the trail that day, probably again because it's so populated that if there were any snakes around at the beginning of they day, they probably moved away from the trail. About half way through there is a drinking fountain where the giant teepee is and I think there is also a fountain right near Paradise Falls. If you're cool with drinking from these do yourself an additional favor by leaving the water bottle behind. This is also a popular area for people with drones so if you don't like that, you've been warned.
