    This isn't really a hike at all, just a cool place to check out. I used to ride my horse here back in the 80's and 90's, hasn't changed much. Lots of broken glass, chances to see some horseback riders, too.

    This was a nice easy trail, lots of different scenery and many loops to follow. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find it hard to navigate, there were many signs indicating the different trails. We saw a man who lived nearby, on his horse, he was helpful in telling us about the trails and the history behind the abandoned house. We walked up to the old abandoned house, which was pretty cool.
    Plenty of parking.

    Nice, easy trail. Mostly walking through a sandy wash after you pass the oasis. Oasis was cool, it was neat to hear and see all the activity (birds, frogs, lizards) and have the shade and water there in the hot desert.
    It is $9 per person to get in, we arrived at 8:30am and there weren't too many people there. By the time we left at 11:30am, the parking lot was full and there was a line of about 10 cars waiting in line to get in. There are quite a few porta-potties on site, with sanitizer and TP, which was nice. The Trading Post sells just about anything you might need.
    We came back on the Victor trail and it was HOT even in early Feb. Like another reviewer stated, next time we will do it in reverse so we can enjoy the shade at the end of the trail instead of the beginning.
    We will come back here to explore some more for sure.

    Not sure if we misunderstood the directions or what, but we never found this trailhead. From the photos it appears to be at the Black Mountain campground, which apparently is 5 miles up a rutted dirt road. I had no idea about a dirt road based on the info here. GPS said we'd arrived about 5 minutes in, but there was nothing really there. We did venture up the road a good 15 minutes, but it had multiple turnoffs and no signage indicating which way to go so we turned around and went back. We love this area so it's a nice drive, luckily we don't live too far away so we may go back up another day to try it again.

    Went again early on a Saturday, Memorial Weekend. No other hikers seen, I don't think too many hikers use this trail. The trail is getting a bit overgrown towards the end, but still easy to follow. I wouldn't take a dog as there are lots of burrs and foxtails now. Do not take horses no matter what the descrption says! Way too narrow and rocky at some parts.
    The 1st creek is dry and the 2nd is kind of stagnant, if that's what you're hoping to do at the end it's probably not the best idea. We could hear water flowing but couldn't see how to get to it, so there might be a good hidden spot somewhere.
    On the way back the bugs and flies were almost unbearable, even sprayed ourselves 3 times and it didn't help. I could see them all swarming my head in my shadow!
    Still a nice hike, we will go again!

    This was a great, moderate trail. Mostly uphill for the first half and then a nice downhill going back. It was not a steep incline but was steady and manageable. Nice mix of shade and sun, lots of different terrain and foliage. Lots of rocks, wear appropriate shoes. We arrived at 8am on a Saturday, parking lot was pretty full already and expected to have a lot of company on the trail but it was surprisingly quiet. Bathroom is gross, but at least there is one. Very easy trail to navigate, well marked. Saw a couple horses on the trail, lots of various kinds of animal poop, huge lizards, a couple bunnies and a very small stream. Would be good for dogs although we didn't see any. Lots of bugs in some areas.
    Many options to extend the hike when you arrive at 4 corners. Great workout for a casual hiker, I would go back for sure. Candy store at the parking lot too! Yum! Have fun!

    Nice EASY stroll around the lake, not really a hike, and definitely not moderate. We went around the trail twice an about an hour, maybe less. Beautiful little lake, lots of shade and huge pine cones!! Would be a great place for a family to spend the day, lots of picnic tables, bbq's, fishing areas and restrooms available. Lots of parking and easy to find, be sure to get a forest pass!! Walk up the road a bit to a small turnout/info area and find a great view of the entire valley, a little further up the road is a dirt truck trail with an even better view from a huge rock!

    Great place for a quick, easy hike. Diverse trails with lots of shady spots, ponds to hike a long as well as some steeper hills that make for a nice workout. Fun place to explore, great little shop to get some smoked brisket and apple cider after your hike! We went on a weekday and there weren't too many people there, although I can imagine weekends are crowded. Will be going back to explore some more.

    One of our go-to hikes as we live just about 1/2 hour away. Beautiful scenery, nicely maintained trail. Lots of shade. Not too many people if you get there early. Idyllwild is a great town to have lunch and window shop in afterwards.

    Eva Davidson reviewed Whitewater Canyon Loop Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Arrived at 8am on a Sunday, right when they open. Rangers were very nice, however the trails were lacking. We had to double back at dead ends multiple times. It was very rocky and flat, the scenery was nice but it was a fairly boring hike so we wandered about 3 miles then gave up and headed to the Cabazon Outlets down the road to put in a few more miles (shopping!). By the time we left the Preserve at 9:30am, the entire parking lot was full and people were parking along the streets and walking in. A car full of people waited 5 minutes for us to load our gear just to take our parking spot. Bathroom was pretty dirty and we went in right when they opened.
    I don't imagine we'll be going back, but kids might like it and it's probably easy enough for anyone.

    This is a moderate trail, about 6 miles out and back. We went on a Saturday at 9 am and saw no other hikers the entire time. Varying terrain, flat, rocky, hills, shade, sun. This trail has it all. Large creek at the end of a pretty steep drop, I had to stop a few times on the way back but the guys had no trouble. Narrow at some places and would definitely not take a horse on this trail and probably not even dogs. Saw evidence of coyotes and snakes. Great spot for a picnic at the end and it appears some use the area to camp. Have fun!
