Bouquet Falls is a lesser-known waterfall in the Angeles National Forest. The hike is extremely short and easy, thus, perfect for the entire family.

Although most people don’t know about the falls, it’s nevertheless covered in graffiti. However, I still recommend checking it out.

Hiking to Bouquet Falls

The parking lot at Bouquet Falls is very small, and adjoins nearby houses, so please be very respectful by keeping your voices down as you begin the hike.

Your short adventure begins by walking past the white gate.

Watch out for rattlers during the spring and summer seasons! Should you come across a rattle snake, simply walk around them.

They’re not one to follow you. They just want to be left alone.

Thanks to the significant amount of water, you can expect an abundance of vegetation and shade throughout the entirety of the trail.

Almost immediately, you’ll come to a small 4-5ft waterfall with a pool measuring roughly 2-3 ft deep.

This is a great place to cool off and relax.

After one creek crossing and tons of graffiti later, you will arrive at the largest of the waterfalls containing two beautiful cascades spilling over a rocky ledge.

This is not Bouquet Falls, but in my opinion, it’s more impressive than Bouquet.

To the left, a stunning 15-20ft grotto boasts a reddish vine-like plant which hangs down behind the falls and resembles a horsetail.

Meanwhile, the cascade to the right follows a more gentle descent down the canyon via deep green moss covered rocks.

The adventure isn’t over! Keep making your way up the canyon either to the left or the right of the falls. This section requires a bit of easy boulder scrambling.

Notice Bouquet Falls at the top of the image shown below.

Congratulations, you’ve made it to Bouquet Falls.

The set of cascades only measure about 4 ft in height, but what they lack in size they make up for in abundance of water and vegetation.

Note: if you have family or friends who can’t hike but want to see the falls, they can do so by parking on a small dirt shoulder off the side of the road, which allows you to see Bouquet Falls up close!
