it is hard to find shaded trails in southern California. this is one of them. Be prepared to cross streams with water. A great trail to experience wilderness within 2 miles of starting on this trail. limited parking near trailhead but plenty on the street. if hiking with kids, consider doing a short distance. many picnic benches on the route .
My family and I did about 2 miles of this, ages 8 & 9 and grandmother. Easy walk by a stream, however, we went after the rain and it was like a river. The river actually made it impossible to pass at the 2 mile mark without getting wet up your knees. So we turned around. Can't wait to come back
I must be an idiot because this was confusing as heck. Couldn't find the beginning of this trail from Cherry Canyon Motorway so I drove to Woodfield Road and started from there. That stroll was pretty interesting. You go under the 210 and then out of a tunnel. Then it's like, what? Where do you go? So I walk around to try and figure it out. There's a tunnel to your right on the other side of the Devils Dam sign. Go through there and then walk down and past the swings and you're there.
Wouldn't necessarily call this a hike, but was really interesting.
