Partial portion of the Pacific Crest Trail between Devil's Slide Trail and where South Ridge Trail transition starts. Best to hike between June -August so there's no snow on the trail. The Pacific crest Trail extends 2,600 miles from Mexico to Canada. Within San Jacinto District there is 55 miles of the PCT.

Parked at Humber Park and started at Devil's Slide Trail, then this trail. The problem was the snow. This portion being 1.9 miles had a lot of snow but was not impossible to hike, just prepare to get your socks wet because of the snow. This portion of PCT forest is not very dense, there's actually a lot of sun shine on this trail. The views are incredible because this trail is at the summit and follows the ridge of the mountain peak. With snow you can easily get lost because the trail is difficult to see, so be very alert when hiking this trail.
