I visited just before the Agua Caliente campgrounds closed for summer, Memorial weekend. With the hot springs, nice bathrooms with soap and running water, and a general store close by, it was still a great trip despite the 100 degree weather.

Even got to see bighorn sheep on the trail!

Not the most interesting hike I've been on but it was enjoyable and the environment is definitely beautiful. Lots of desert Flora to enjoy.

Great hike with diverse terrain. Cool, moist canyon with open desert approach, rocks and mountain trails. Lands right on top of Agua Caliente. Big horn sheep are on the trail if you start early enough. Relatively easy to traverse.

Did this one the other day and is a good hiking for kids. We tried to locate the Elsinore Fault but we couldn't find it because we don't exactly know where and what it looks like.
