Hike To Placerita Falls

Today, my friend Linda and I took another hike. This time we hiked up to the Placerita Waterfall in the Placerita Canyon of Santa Clarita, CA.
The hike is 1.5 miles in from the trail head. The trail takes you across Placerita Creek (when we have our "wet" months), then goes up a hill into a narrow canyon. At the end of the canyon you find a waterfall that falls about 20 feet. I've heard that if you climb up the face of the cliff that there is another waterfall farther up, but these two "old ladies" didn't want to temp faith (LOL).
All in all, it was a great day.

  1. Its so nice you have found someone to hike with you and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I am wondering if your brother is okay who used to hike with you, hope so.

  2. It's nice to see running water and sunshine! All we have now is clouds, ice and snow. It's going to be a while before we can get to any waterfalls.

  3. Gorgeous! Waterfalls are so beautiful. I know there's no way I could keep up with you two. Last night my guy and I hit the gym and I couldn't keep on the stairmaster for 5 minutes! Whew. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos with us!

  4. What a rocky climb to the top of the waterfall, I would be fine looking up from the bottom :)
    Your video is wonderful, Kay. I love the sound of the rushing water.


  5. That must be so much fun Hiking with a friend through such beautiful country. I couldn't find a comment button for the post above.


Thanks for hiking along with me and Hiker.
