Pools have water but the big Falls are down to a trickle just enough to keep the moss growing. Not too overgrown up to East Camino, just really dry. Couple of flowers left.

Such a beautiful hike this morning. You couldn't see much because of all the fog, but on the positive side I wasn't getting baked by the sun. Came across 3 snakes and more people than I expected.

beautiful scenery, but no hot springs. just warm puddles

Fantastic view!!!! It is not an easy marked trail. luckily we found somebody on the trail who knew how to get to it! I was sore the next day full body work out guranteed!

Just hiked there from the west fork cold springs trail. It was a beautiful and challenging day hike. Nothing crazy for an experienced hiker, but does include some scrambling. Be prepared to sort of 'choose your own adventure' once you get close to the falls. It is not a marked or well worn trail and it feels a bit open to interpretation in areas. I enjoyed that. The falls were dry, but the creeks/springs along the way were running and there were plenty of pools that you could cool off in. The views from the base of the falls are awesome, especially on a clear day. I only saw one other person on a weekday.

We hiked up McMenemy Trail, then took the Girard connector to the Catway, taking the San Ysidro trail all the way down. It was 3.5 miles total. Definitely a moderate hike, with lots of flowers, poison oak, and rocks to climb on.

I decided to start building up to backpack camping with my 8 yr old and see how well we would do with a full load. Testing the waters. All went well. Good hike for kids. Definitely start on the trail next to the creek.

Great trail as always. The big waterfall is down to a trickle by now.

Above the waterfall, portions of the trail are getting quite overgrown and in need of maintenance. With encroaching brush, including thistle, it may be advised to start avoiding shorts until brush is taken back.

Great trail
