Take ample water. Heat exhaustion and a hornet made for a really less than stellar finish to the trail, but it was beautiful and worth it.

We did a short thru hike from the Peralta Trailhead to Dutchman Trail to Boulder Canyon Trailhead. We camped at Second Water Spring and continued on to Canyon Lake (17 miles total) the next day.
We hiked for 9 miles from Fremont Saddle with no water in sight until we reached Second Water Spring (fortunately we had decided to carry 5 liters each, so we had enough for a late November hike), we refilled our water containers before breaking camp. We, again, didn't find any water until we arrived at Canyon Lake. Boulder Canyon is a great trail, but many sections are definitely difficult due to the terrain, incredibly tight, undermanaged trails and you need to have hawkeye vision to find all the cairns when crisscrossing the streambed to make sure you stay on trail.
The views are terrific whether you are up high or are walking along the canyon floor.

Hiked the trail today. As everyone mentioned before fantastic views. When you reach the saddle do make the effort to hike out to lone pine. It’s off to your left when looking at Weavels Needle.

Great view from the top. Trail is easy to loose. Pay attention to the trail. Loose gravel and it’s a good incline at the top. Wear shoes with good tread otherwise you will fall and it’s a long, painful fall down...

Moderate trail due to loose rocks. Worth your time. Great little short trail. When the water is running it’s beautiful!!!!! Watch out for the bees tho.

Really cool cave at the top. Did it with my kids, easy for 9 year old, challenging for 5 year old. It’s pretty steep toward the top and the trail isn’t marked very well in some spots. Really good photo opportunities at the cave too. Overall a good hike.
We parked in a small parking lot. You go through the fence and not next to it, we hiked off to the side by accident. Up toward the top, it’s easy to go off the trail but that’ll eventually bring you to the cave too.
My GPS has us at over 4 miles and elevation gain of over 1,400 feet.

Hard to find but awesome

Awesome hike! Did this on Dec 10th. Was a beautiful day and made for a great hike! We went out to the saddle then a bit further off to the right out toward Weavers Needle.

On the way back instead of following the same trail we took a loop back on the other side of the canyon. Was definitely more challenging and difficult to follow the trail but using the satellite GPS view on the app we were able to find the trail and had a blast. (Not for inexperienced hikers to try the second part as there is some bouldering etc with some nice drops.)

Highly recommend! Went through about 2 liters of water just FYI.
