Beautiful section of the PCT between Lost Valley Road and the Combs Peak section of the PCT. See the description in Afoot and Afield San Diego on page 195. There are several spots to camp along the trail and some water sources at the north end.

Just backpacked the entire Section from April 13 through April 23, 2018. Incredible trail; so much variety! It’s important while backpacking to always be aware of the most updated water reports.

3/31/18 Did Warner Springs to Tule Truck Trail over Easter Weekend. don't start at the trailhead on the Southside, is basically just flat pasture. Go around the corner and start from the north side of the 79 near Glider Airport.

skip the water at Mile 119 if you can. it's doable but the worst water I the section. Don't park at Tule Truck Trail unless you have a 4x4. we drove sedans and it was pretty tricky in and out I wouldn't do it again.

the trail is fantastic, highly recommend

Just finished section hiking this section on the weekends! Absolutely gorgeous hike that takes you through the San Jacinto Wilderness. The 20 mile hike down the mountains to the I-10 was the most brutal part of the hike.

Got it again, whole section class of 2017. Lotsa water this year and some nice views from up near San Jacinto.

Great hike. Moderate in difficulty, but this hike is long if you go road to road and back. Great views and almost no one around unless it is thru hiking season. Can be done as a backpacking trip too as there are several camping spots. Enjoy.

This was a nice surprise. After about half a mile the trail opens up to an open landscape of rolling hills, rock formations and high mountains in the distance. We had a perfect sunny day, and saw only 4 other hikers while we were out. There are lots of hiking options on this section of the PCT, but this is probably the most accessible from the Palm Springs area, and at 5000 feet, is one of the lower elevation options so you can hike it earlier in the season.
