Pls only do this trail with at least 3-4L of water and experience of hiking. I’m an avid hiker but the heat right now is an absolute a** kicker, especially if you are not used to the heat!! Plenty of water is a must. Or bring a water filter. It’s absolutely beautiful.

HikingFeeGreat!

It was a fun and easy trail, arrived right when the park opened so there wasn't any foot traffic, minor rocks and borders to jump over but easy enough for children

Last half of hike was nice, however the first part is directly in the sun and the hottest hike we've been on. And really not very scenic.

It was a nice hike, not too hard, but still a good workout and the waterfall at the end was refreshing.

Fantastic hike. Starts pretty easy, but definitely gets trickier as you approach the falls. We did not find the waterfall anticlimactic, and really enjoyed the cool water. Bring lots of water because the heat does make it tougher.

It was a strenuous hike at 93 degree temperatures. The trails are narrow and many folks didn’t bother to wear masks. The biggest letdown was the so called waterfall at the end...it was a small stream falling down from 12 feet.

Really amazing views! I recommend getting there early since it gets pretty hot in the afternoon. If you go in the afternoon, make sure you bring plenty of water.

HikingFeeGreat!RockyScramble

This remains a great hike (one of the best) in the low desert city area of SoCal. It has changed some over the years, and the Reservation remains consciences about making your hike memorable. Whether this hike is moderate or more depends on where your hiking abilities are. Me, being a regular though not a very adept hiker, find this to be a challenging "medium" hike. There are indeed at least a dozen stream crossings (often choices between rock and/or spanning log crossings). The "Res" does try to make it possible for you to fjord the crossings, but some may find it challenging. Note that most hikers with decent skills have no trouble doing the trail. Toward the final 800 feet at the end, you will have to scramble some (and note the "end" is not an "end all" necessary destination, since there is no awesome feature there). We came back via the alternate southern ridge top fin about 1/2 way up Murray Canyon. The "upper trail" back has impressive views of the desert all around. This trail is very well maintained, and graded nicely. You will find many more horses up here than hikers. It is a definite alternative if you have had enough of the rocks, stream crossings, crowds, and Pushwalla Palms below. Most people were wearing a mask on this trail. The trail can be very crowded, but worth it. Lastly, make sure you do Andreas Cyn as well, especially the lower northern part. It is stunning here up against the cliffs and stream, and short. Lots of picture opportunities.
