The wild lands of the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountain Ranges were designated a National Forest more than a hundred years ago. The Forest Reserve Act was passed in 1891, giving us the San Bernardino Forest Reserve, which became the San Bernardino National Forest in 1925. The San Bernardino National Forest as public land was set aside for the conservation of natural resources such as trees, water, minerals, livestock range, recreation, or wildlife. Today, the San Bernardino National Forest serves as southern California's outdoor year-around recreation destination, as well as providing valuable watershed protection. Drive the scenic Rim of the World Scenic Byway and Palms to Pines Scenic Byways to discover your local National Forest.

Make sure to take a carrier for your toddler or baby. We had to cross a rocky dried up river bed, then go up hill for about 1/4 mile. It can get pretty steep in some areas. The water fall was beautiful and worth the hike.

This was an incredible and fun place to hike. Simple well marked trails and some incredibly unexpected sights. It was an incredible place, bring some cash for a donation for parking.

I would consider it on the easy side and not the moderate. Would need a bit more rocks or climbing.

Beautiful hike with great fall colors and well marked trails.

Park at the trailhead if your car can make it to avoid an extra mile of steep terrain. The trail itself is well maintained and has a gradual incline (except the last bit near the fire lookout) there's lots of shade until the last bit. The rock formations are incredible - the views get better and better with each step. Many places to stop for a picnic, too. It's remarkable that idyllwild has this "Yosemite" feel to it when you get up high on this trail.
