Little Jimmy Springs is about 7 miles long and located near Azusa, California. The trail is part of several trails available in the Crystal Lake Recreation Area and great for hiking and normally takes a half day or less. The trail is pretty much easy to follow and well maintained as you can see signs throughout the trail and the park rangers also put up some rocks on the sides of the trail. As you arrive in Crystal Lake Recreation Area, you can stop by the park ranger station and pick up the map of the trail to help you during the hike and probably get some information from the park ranger on duty regarding the condition of the trail, warnings, and weather that day. (Don't forget to put up your adventure pass in your car).

It's a little rough for anyone not in shape but doable.

Amazingly scenic trail took us about 3 hours for back and forth with kids along.
Happen to meet Jason and Ryan to cross country hikers doing Pacific Crest trail... Mexico to Canada. Unbelievable they already hiked 390 mikes and more than 2000 miles to cover... Good luck both of you

Great place to take beginner backpackers. There's a pit toilet, fire pits, and picnic benches. The spring was running when I went and was delicious! It tends to get crowded with Boy Scout troops on the weekends though. Started from crystal lake campground to little jimmy ~6 mi

The first leg of the hike in was very strenuous for me. I was not acclimated to the elevation and a bit out of shape. Once I got to the campground and rested and replenished my fluids it became much easier.

Great trail campground for a beginner backpacking trip, as you have accessible pit toilets and delicious water from the nearby spring. The toilets are just packed with flies, and there was no TP when I was there, so definitely bring your own. Definitely check out Mt. Islip peak nearby.

Nice little spot for primitive camping. Has picnic tables and pit toilets. It is secluded and not usually full so that is nice. The only downside is you can hear Hwy 2 and the pit toilets are nasty (not dirty, just full of flies). There is a spring about 1/4 mile down the trail which seems to be running year round (but don't count on it, bring water). I hiked up from Crystal lake campground which is a 2.8 mile hike.

This is not a trail but a campground along the PCT, hiked to the campground from Crystal Lake campground, spent the night and then did a round trip to to mt Williamson, picked up our gear and back to Crystal Lake campground. This is a beautiful campground with brick camp stoves, fire rings pick nick tables, pit toilets and fire pits.
