Fun little hike. Although isn't marked very well so be careful and try not to get lost.

The trail was good. But it drops you off at the end at some other parking lot.

Get there before 8 am., dry, hot and a constant grade up. View of valley floor from Orange to Mission Viejo. Mountain bikers flew down this trail, struggled going up.

I enjoyed this trail, but the road to get to the destination is pretty terrible. 3-4 mile dirt road with potholes and rocks. The waterfall was pretty dried out. We went in late July. Probably won't give this trail another go.

Amazing hike! You can make it longer or shorter depending on what you want. We wanted to challenge ourselves because we're training for Peru and trying to get in some higher elevation hikes. There's almost no shade so go early to beat the heat. Saw some baby horned lizards on the trail and lots of hummingbirds. Take the detour to Garnet peak for amazing views of Anza Borrego desert, the best part.

Hike was extremely fun and challenging. a little disappointed there wasn't that much water left. Encountered a rattlesnake on the way back. Definitely could get lost easily.
