Weekend Hiking Report: Escondido Falls

We were back in Malibu last Saturday, to enjoy the Escondido Falls trail after the recent rainstorms.  Although the terrain was fraught with general muddiness and some slightly precarious stream crossings, we were well-rewarded with a lively waterfall view at trail's end.  As a bonus, we scrambled up above the initial waterfall money shot and enjoyed some fun boulder hopping, some steep ascents, some auxiliary falls action, and some lovely views.

We were accompanied by friends Miriam and Jack — who turned out to be the most adept of our group at boulder hopping and advance reconnaissance.
