Since California waterfalls are seasonal and SB County can get very hot in the spring and summer, we strongly recommend you check weather conditions before visiting and plan accordingly.\nWe strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures. If you do plan to visit a location, respect the environment.
