Great hike for a short distance with lots of elevation gain. Today the spring was frozen making it well worth the hike!
Great way to spend the afternoon.
A lot of switchbacks, but definitely an amazing hike as long as you don't miss the springs!
I had a great time at this trail the temperature was 62 at the trail head. But when I arrived to the spring. It was all frozen and it was really cold so just be prepared for it. The fall trees colors made the hike really unique.
Didn't get very far on this trail because of my hike the previous day. My legs were done about two miles in. I climbed to these rocks that you can see to the left of the trail about .5 mile into the hike. Such good views! I'll add a picture from it. It was a little hazy from the LA fire so I'll definitely be going back to check it out.
From the North loop its about 5 .3 miles round trip to raintree to mummy springs its about another .3 or . 4 of a mile from raintree.
