Next time you find yourself on the way to Big Bear do yourself a favor and stop at the intersection of Hwy 38 and Valley of the Falls Rd to witness a spectacular seasonal waterfall.
This must-see gem is AT LEAST 400ft tall (I honestly believe it may be bigger than the largest SoCal Falls, Big Falls), but it only flows after a decent amount of rain. Try to get out there no longer than a week after heavy rain or a couple of days after ordinary rainfall.
Unfortunately, I was in a hurry so I didn’t have the time to look for a trail. Monkeyface Creek Falls can be seen from Valley of The Falls Rd without having to get off your car.
I visited exactly a week after 2 consecutive days of decent rainfall in December and it was still flowing!
