If you've ever dreamed about hiking to an oasis, now is your chance! Nestled in heart of Cleveland National Forest, the Three Sisters Waterfalls Trail is one of the most rewarding day-hikes in the San Diego area. The trail is approximately 4 miles total and offers plenty of challenges for the advanced hiker, including a steep 300-foot descent, climbing up and around boulders, and rappelling down a mini cliff. The temperature can often be very hot depending on the time of year, but the waterfalls and pools at the end of the trail more than make up for it. When the falls are full in the Spring, the bottom waterfall forms a natural waterslide.
Any weekend in Spring, Fall, or Winter. Summer tours are possible on cooler weekends.
I've led several hikes to Three Sisters under various conditions over the past three years. It is one of my favorite hikes in the San Diego area.
  • Snacks/Trailmix
  • Transportation to and from the falls
  • Tecnu for poison oak
Bring good hiking shoes, a backpack, sunscreen, sunglasses, and PLENTY of water. Recommend at least 1 gallon per person on hot days. Also note that there are small patches of poison oak along certain areas of the trail. I will provide Tecnu Cleanser for those who are allergic.
Full refund 2 days prior to tour.

  • Day 1
    Drive for approximately 1 hour to the trailhead. Upon arrival, we’ll hike the trail to the falls for 1.5 hours, stopping along the way to soak in the views, observe the flora, and chill by the river. Eat lunch/snacks at the falls, take a much-needed swim, relax, ride the natural water-slide (not for the faint of heart!), and explore around. If there’s enough water, it is sometimes possible to cliff-jump into the upper falls. Once we leave the falls, we’ll return the same way and arrive back at the meetup location approximately 6 hours later.
