We hiked up to the swing- super difficult trail, it goes straight up but it was totally worth it!

We came here looking for a swing and a cave but you’re not going to find it on this trail but you can find it if you start at the hummingbird trail location going another direction, but I will explain that soon. This trail goes straight up and back down. It’s steep and you’re heading up rocks most of the time. It’s not a bad workout and I enjoyed it. I really enjoy climbing rocks and boulders so this one can be a lot of fun and nice to do it when it’s a little cooler since there’s not a lot of shade. Tip: If you are looking for the cave with the swing inside which I must admit was very cool you need to pass the hummingbird trail and stay straight. You need to follow arrows and a white bunny painted on the rocks and it will lead you up to the cave. Originally when we read about this trail it said there was a cave with the swing but on the actual hummingbird trail, you are not going to find the swing. My suggestion is to Google the cave if you can’t find it. The only way we found this cave was someone showed us the way. When I walked out I noticed if we had just gone straight and not turn where it told us the trail was we probably would’ve started seeing the arrows and the white bunnies to help us along the way.

Fantastic hike!! Very challenging but worth the views going up. Best to go early or late afternoon as there’s not much shade and the sun can get brutal.

Beautiful trail off of the freeway. Best to go early in the morning to avoid crowds and rattlesnakes.
