Nice family hike, wide trail, very easy. not much shade. Rock formations are absolutely beautiful!

Super fun family hike. No poison oak, mostly wide and well marked trails. Lots of variety, views, water crossings. Little to no shade so bring plenty of water or save this one for a day it's not too hot. Does require an Adventure Pass from the Ranger Station. The Piedra Blanca rock formations are spectacular once you're upon them. We climbed them up as far as we felt we could safely do so and made it up a good ways. Highly recommend this hike.

Brought my family our here for an afternoon hike to explore a new area on a relatively flat hike to these cool rock formations. We enjoyed the hike out and explored the area a bit upon arrival. Neat area and definitely more to explore later on the Sespe River Trail, Lions Camp, Falls, etc.

Nice hike into the Sespa wilderness. Fun creek crossings (4 of them!). The rocks are amazing. Pure sandstone formed into behemoth boulders. Great trail maintainance. Well marked.

Just a hop skip and jump from Rose Valley Falls, this was an excellent second stop and hike. Interesting rocks and nice views.We enjoyed the solitude on the trail.
