I hate to be a downer, but it isn’t worth the trip out to Graffiti Waterfall. It’s VERY small and in the middle of a neighborhood. The photos make it look like it’s out in nature - but not at all. The Home Owner’s association donated the property to a land conservancy several year ago in hopes that it would get cleaned up but that hasn’t happened. At one time it was a nice place, but became a party hangout 30 years ago where drunk teens defaced the rocks and is now just a mess. If you want a nice hike in Riverside, go to Mt. Rubidoux or out to the river. Fairmount Park is another interesting location with lots of history!
