Really nice trail. Not too many folks on it, but be mindful of the cows!
LOTS of poison oak. Also saw a Gardner snake. Love all the stream crossings.

Go 1.4 miles past the bridge to enter from the top. Not easy and it's extremely easy to get lost. If you hike from the bridge to the bottom of the cups, it's not difficult.

The water is WAY too high to get in as of April 23, 2017. You will not be able to see the cups unless you have gear and even then I wouldn't recommend it.

Beautiful hike around some redwoods. Small hike, but never gets old.

Great Trail to go on. My Lab loves walking on this trail. I took my 5 year old daughter on an overnighter and she did great. I found some beer cans at the first stream crossing. Please make sure to pack your trash out so this trail stays pristine.

I love this trail, the views from the trail are amazing!

A beautiful scenic trail. Loved it! We walked the whole 3.3 miles and it was breath taking.

Went today, kids enjoyed the trails but as others have said all but one of the springs is flooded and the one that is usable smells like sulfur

We had a great hike here. It took us about 4-5 hours. There are some parts of the trail that get covered from erosion, trees, water, etc but it is pretty easy to find your way. If you are a beginner, probably not the best start due to the steep grades, narrow paths at points and varied terrain. With that said it's doable but be prepared with plenty to hydrate, snacks, sunblock, bug repellent, First Aid kit, and be in a group. Start early to allow for breaks and less heat. The cave is up high so conserve energy along the way for out and back. The cave was totally worth it. Also, if you bring your dog as we did, make sure you've got everything & extra for them.

was there today, all but one spring is flooded. don't think it's gonna get lower until august. there might be hippies that live there. very nice some trials around.

Keep going trail spans many miles

My nephew and I completed this as a backpacking trip. We hiked to pine flats which is really beutiful. The wildflowers are beautiful right now. There was still some snow on the ground at pine flats. The trail was very difficult with the fully loaded pack. We were exhasuted by the time we got back and had sore feet becasue the trail is quite rocky. We did not see many people once we got about 2 miles in. We did see a coupl of dirt bikers on the way out. The views of the kern river an lake isabella are amazing. I would not recommend this as a backpackign trip for any beginners.

Trail is mostly unused. Locals said not maintained and overrun with poison oak.

Great hike. The snow and some fallen trees hid the trail at times but the posts along the trail helped. The posts don't seem to be even spaced and the last one we saw was number 24.
