The east trail head of Penasquitos Canyon, located in southern California, contains a beautiful waterfall as its destination. The easy hike on flat and well-carved trails meanders along the Penasquitos creek which retains water year-round. But the best time to find a heavy white cascade is in spring, winters or just after heavy rainfall in the area. You will be hiking in the shades of many cottonwood trees amidst colorful wildflowers to reach the rock stairs taking you to the bed of the waterfall.
With well-marked signboards placed along the lush and green trails, the six-mile hike will let you encounter many alternate routes but keeping the right will lead you to the correct destination. The place offers a calm space on its rocks for visitors to sunbathe and relax by the creek surrounded by beautiful coloured flowers. The wooden bridges within the lush forest setting to cross small streams of the creek adds to the refreshment and beauty of this hiking experience.
