The falls are awesome, it's super tall and had a lot of water when we went in June. Lots of graffiti. We used our own trash bags we had on hand to gather trash out of the trail to the trash cans at the start of the hike. Lots of people and easy hike. Not a moment of solace kind of hike, which is why I give three stars. More like a Disneyland hike. Pretty short, not hard to get to but worth the trip and super cool for kids to see and get used to hiking and be happy to have found a cool waterfall in the hills. If you go past the small canyon where the falls are to the next little inlet to the left, there's another smaller falls and a great natural water slide. Be careful there though, if you break your ankle you'll need to be choppered out. It's a much harder hike with some bouldering required. The water slide was about an hour of fun for us. If you throw trash on the trail you're a jackass.

Pretty steep but great hike. Mostly in the shade and very clean. Definitely worth seeing the view from the top.

Great hike, keep going all the way to the river it's a beautiful little spot. The whole hike took about 2 hrs travel time

Nice little trail. A bit steep going up but not impossible. Dogs loved it too!

Great workout hike for moderate hikers through an eerie desolate landscape. Trail can be a little difficult to follow at times but if you slow down and look for footprints you can pick it up again. The trailhead is right next to a firing range so the first mile can be a little noisy.

I only planned on taking my 2015 Forester XT up the bee canyon road off highway 74. I never saw the sign that said "bee canyon truck trail" I just noticed that the road got a little rougher and over 10 miles later the road turned into mount jacinto truck trail. Oh well, I drove the stock Forester XT (well, with 28.5" A/T's) all the way to Idyylwyld.

I made it up with no damage, but I feel like there were some close calls. I can vouch that the boulder that is on the mountain side of the road only allows for about 6 feet of width. Full size trucks beware. That boulder is 3-4 feet tall.

In the middle of the trail is this beautiful water crossing. As you climb higher in the mount Jacinto area, the trail becomes shaded, greener and more lush in forest. Trail ends in idyylwyld. Beautiful way to way to end the drive.
