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.

One of my favorite places to hike - ever! the waterfalls are beautiful and you can choose how far you want to hike. You can choose to end your hike when you reach the first falls or continue up to reach the top of the waterfall and small pool beneath it. Great to bring your doggies here! BEWARE... Parking can be a bit of a mess. There is a large parking lot at the trailhead with BOTH fee free and PAID parking. The gravel lot to the left is free. The lined spots require a day pass which you can purchase at the general store a few miles down the road. Overnight camping is no longer allowed, but if you want to hang out for the day and set up a little camp there are spots and bathrooms.

1/20/2020 -Such a nice trail! It’s pretty steep at first, but we didn’t get very far (maybe a mile up) because we had our dog. It would have been fine, but the trail changes from dirt to rock and if my baby slipped and hurt himself I couldn’t carry him back down. If you can trust your pup off leash or they behave well on the leash, l’d totally bring them. -the dirt road up to the parking lot is a little scary... enough room for ONE car and that is IT! If you have a super low car, I don’t recommend driving up to the lot, but parking at a close by turn out and walking up. (The parking lot is small anyways) Definitely going to try this trail again! (No doggie next time)

Nice climb. Nice views. Have to share some the road with dirt bikes and off road vehicles but it wasn’t crowded. Would do it again. It nice to have the picnic table and bathroom at top.

We went on our first journey last July 2019 knowing that it was going to be hot. Especially on the way out. Hit the trail at 8am on Tues morning and made it easily to the hot springs by 9am. This is not hard, more moderate. The trail was very beautiful and pretty easy to follow, definately steep at the last part and we mentally prepared ourselves for the steep and very hot climb out. There was only one other couple there so we feel like we owned the place, take note go early and midweek! The hot springs were awesome and the pools all different temps. I usually break out in a rash from hot springs (Borrego/Palm Spgs) but no rashes and no foul smelling rotten eggs! We will def be back and plan to avoid the crowds again. People did finally start showing up within the hour but still not crazy busy and most people like me keeping their clothes on (don’t mind the nudies, just not for me:). Keep your food well secured from the little critters waiting for you to get in the pools;-). Hot steep uphill but embraced it, great workout took about 1.5 hrs back to the car. Can’t wait to go back!

Getting up from the pond area alone made it more of a moderate than easy hike...

Good quick 2 hour

We parked on the outside of the park to avoid any fees. Also, recommend to take waterproof shoes with grip. The snow is melting and created lots of mud. Beautiful scenery on the way to the top. 10/10 recommend.

One section quite rocky, but a stock GX460 can still manage. Nice trail, a lot of fun.

To find the main trail, follow the game trails through the small ditch just past the dumpsters, follow them up to the ridge and you will see a much clearer path going up the mountain. Very steep at the beginning but flattens out about a mile up. Eventually you will hit the old fire road and the path widens quite a bit. Beautiful views of the entire valley and Wildwood Canyon from up here.
