California Waterfalls

Tahquitz Falls:

Trailhead GPS: 33.81055,-116.55130 (Tahquitz Canyon Parking)
Waterfall GPS: 33.80367,-116.56202

Tahquitz Falls is a 60-foot waterfall on Tahquitz Creek in Riverside County.  The waterfall is located in Tahquitz Canyon on the reservation of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.  The hike to the waterfall is about 2 miles round trip and easy.  There is a fee to hike in the canyon - $12.50 per person.

To visit the falls, head south on CA-111B/Palm Canyon Drive for about 2 miles and turn right on Mesquite Avenue.  Drive about a half-mile to the parking area that is just past the Tahquitz Canyon visitor center.  After paying admission, hike the Tahquitz Canyon Trail upstream along the creek.  There are two spots to cross the creek, but it's pretty easy to get across dry.  The trail ends at the waterfall.
