Hey! We just got a surprisingly large amount of rain for a May storm – it’s highly unusual to get this much rain in May in Southern California. So what’s the point?
This is a great time to visit one of Southern California’s numerous great waterfalls, many of which dry up significantly over the summer.
On The Hiker’s Way waterfall hikes page, you can pick these out by geographical area, time required, distance, etc.
For example, the fun Black Star Canyon Falls Hike, seen below, is located in the beautiful Santa Ana Mountains in Orange County. The creek that feeds the falls drains a relatively small area, so just after a good rain (like now) is a great time to go!
If you want to see something really dramatic with more substantial water, one of the great waterfall canyons in the magnificent San Gabriel Mountains is located on the awesome Middle Fork Lytle Creek Waterfalls Hike, pictured below.
There are many others available for your hiking pleasure – some of which are off trail, adventurous, and difficult, and some of which are very easy to reach and require much less time and effort.
So just choose one of these fantastic Southern California Waterfall Hikes and enjoy the grandeur of the majestic waterfalls in our local mountains while they are flowing! It’s time to go see a waterfall!
