Tried to hike this but the trail was closed off. This is my first time here so I don't know whether I was at the correct trail head or not.

Great trail for 4x4. If you don't have high clearance or a 4x4 you will struggle with the trail. Did it in a Ram Powerwagon, it was tight in some bits but made it with zero issues. You take the directions off the Ortega Highway for Bluejay campground, continue straight and once you hit a gravel road, there's a white gate on the left. Drive through and enjoy. Did there and back in about three hours. Lot's of scenic views and a good way to test different aspects of your 4x4.

This trail was so much fun! Tacoma double cab sport took it on. Some deep crevices but stock could prob make it. A little bit of everything on this one. Flat trail, rocky trail, scenic all rolled into one. Hard to find. Make a right at North main divide, it's a paved road, go up about three miles and it'll be on your left. Alot of fun!

Not the trail for you If you're afraid of your vehicle getting scratches. I have encountered 3-4 spots that were badly washed out along the way but nothing a 4x4 Tacoma can't handle. Happy off roading!

Nice hike. Not difficult. Do the loop to 4 Corners and back to parking and it's about 7 miles total.

July 11th 2016. The app says 3.1 miles. Remember that this is only one way! The trail was a little overgrown but that is expected on a trail that is not well known. We passed fisherman camp and went on to the falls. After the falls we walked up the road back to our vehicle. The total distance with the falls was 8 miles. By 10am it was already over 90 outside. I went through 3 liters of water.

started at 8am it started to warm up quick. bring water. a bit of pestering by some yellow looking flies as it got warmer maybe just the season. beautiful canyon and mountain views. the creek was dry. little shade bring a hat. declines into canyon campimg area and if you go back the same route incline up back to trailhead. lots of shade in creek area. lots of birds singing saw plenty of lizards including a horned lizard and a toad inside of the sign in box (i set em free)

Cool place to hang just be sure to watch out for mountain lions. Also not a whole lot of water but during the rain is amazing

Nice little hike, unfortunately no water here in early June so I'd recommend coming after a few heavy rains in Fall or Spring. Cool views though!
