Love this one. I usually go to the cave. Last time I went, I went off trail. Two helicopter rescues here when for the hike. Areas were steep at times but nothing too crazy. Was with 6 year old and she I made it through with a smile

Vasquez rocks park is a pretty fascinating formation of sedimentary rocks that are sitting at ~45degs. Lots of caves and interesting formations. One negative is that this place gets busy and there are lots of horse trails which means horse crap all over the wider trails. Also the site is a maze of small trails going every possible way ....and thay are not marked, so without a gps or phone app it's easy to just wander around on trails without knowing where you are going or if you are on a trail that will actually get you somewhere. Overall pretty cool but bring lots of water as it gets hot with no shade, and bring your gps or phone for a map of the trail maze.

Lots of trails for hiking or horseback riding. PCT section runs through here. Not a lot of shade anywhere but it's high desert. There is water running in the creek this year, yay!

Beautiful scenery and some cool vista points! I hiked the pct to the tunnel under the highway and back and it was a really chill, nice hike. Crossed a few small streams and saw many lizards :)
