Super easy hike, definitely need shoes with a really good grip going up the cave

The wildflowers are out. Blue dicks are the most dominant. Blue dicks aren't my favorite but they're impressive when they add a lavender tint to patches of grass. The wildflowers are best on the north side of the creek.

Great scenery! Perfect for a relaxing get away!

This is like 'the hills have eyes -- the hike'. There was a homeless person's tent across the trail in one of the caves. Creepy! As others said, cave has significant graffiti. Very trashed trail -- beer bottles and plastic bottles everywhere. Also trail wasn't marked, I had to resort to my all trails map. I won't return.

Found a few blue dicks on the north side of the creek that parallels the El Escorpion trail. It's a bit early so maybe more will bloom as they really come into season. There were more in more locations last year. Still nice to see some wildflowers. The trails also have mostly dried out from the recent rains. It's a much nicer hike with everything so green.

There is some mud right now, but colors on the hike are amazing right now.
