    Jennifer Rawlings reviewed Three Sisters Waterfalls Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Went Sat. April 27th and had such an amazing time. The trail is much safer now, no ropes needed. Be careful on the rocks near the water though, when wet they are extremely slippery. 7 miles of dirt roads getting there from either direction. If you're coming from the 5 through Descanso, might want to have a truck or 4 wheel drive. We didn't and it was not fun navigating. Dirt road 7 miles in and out both ways though. Always remember this is a reverse hike, so while it may be simple getting down, it's a hike back up on the way out! Make sure you have plenty of water with you. And PLEASE, if it's warm out or you aren't getting there till afternoon, leave your dogs home. I am an avid hiker with my pup, but he stayed home for this one. The trail is very exposed and when it's hot out, it is not a good situation for them. I saw so many people showing up after 12pm when the ground is baking with old dogs, small dogs, etc. and they were already panting just getting out of the parking lot. Be kind and either bring them super early, or leave them at home. Also, be courteous to all the hikers wanting to enjoy the beauty of the trail and leave your boomboxes at home, or bring ear buds if you must have tunes with you. Enjoy your hike!

    Just did this yesterday - it was a beautiful walk but BRING YOUR MOSQUITO REPELLANT! Oh my gosh, I can't remember the last time i saw so many blood suckers! If you have your repellant on and with you, you will have a very enjoyable hike! The ladybugs are out in swarms - never seen so many ladybugs too! Pay attention to the trail - we followed someone elses hike on alltrails after we walked right past it and got lost. Look for the rock on the right that has an arrow on it with a heart and turn there. No official signs are on the trail. Butterflies were also abundant! Easy hike if you follow the correct path.

    If you're looking for a beautiful hike that is challenging, with amazing views at the top - this is for you! The first two miles are extremely vertical and strenuous. We hike every weekend (including San Jacinto and Tahquitz) and we felt this was harder than both. Straight up on the way up, straight down on the way back which was hard on my feet. But - an amazing workout! The forested area was so beautiful! We saw four deer right in the middle of the path. Fall is a great time to hike here with the changing colors! Note: When you get to the old lookout tower - that's not the peak. Though it is a great place to have lunch! The peak is the higher mountain in front of the tower. You have to do some bushwacking to get there - which we thought was odd. I'm guessing a lot of people missed it thinking the tower was the peak. But hidden in the bushes we found some large boulders with a blue line hanging down from the top that you have to climb up to get to the benchmarks. Two of them are on the top of the boulder, and a third is another bolder next to it. Overall the hike was amazing - but I wouldn't call it moderate. I'd call it difficult. It was beautiful, and everything you want in a challenging hike! Almost 11 miles from the campground to the peak and back.
