Great little hike with a fantastic view of San Jacinto Peak! I parked at the Black Rock ranger station and walked to the trailhead, due east and then cut north when you hit the T. People also park at the trailhead. There are maps for free at the ranger station and also a map on the board at the trailhead. It is called the "Panorama Loop" now. You first walk through the canyon and then do the loop. Easy to follow. You are rewarded with great views for a pretty easy hike.
