Vague trail leaves the southwestern side of Reef Tank and takes off dowh this lovely canyon. Soon it canyons up and you will have to scramble down in if you want to see the waterfalls up close and personal. The first cascade I call delicate falls, it's about a 15 footer with an 8 foot tail into a narrow crack. Smaller scenic cascades follow, then the creek widens out. Drops again then the trail, marked as an old Jeep trail on the map takes off up the hill to the north side. Leave the trail here and continue downcanyon on cow trails. Shield falls, as I call it, is in a rocky grotto, you'll need to be on the south side to get down into it. At this water level there was a lot of spray so you might get a little wet. We went a short distance downcanyon to some small cascades in multicolored striped rock that was very pretty in a tie dyed sort of way. Had to get back to beat the sun so the rest of laurel canyon awaits. Next time I think I'll come up from the bottom, so I can see it all.
