Great trial, down hill the whole way to creek, which means.. up hill the whole way back! Would NOT bring children, way to many naked people on drugs. Not clean people either! But would be such a beautiful place if there was less gross nudes and their trash. Not recommended on a weekend!

Lots of sun exposure but gradually uphill which isn't too bad. Rainbow Bridge is a fun stop. Too heavily trafficked for me.

Finally got to check this one off my list! Beautiful day, light activity of people saw about 10 people total. Bring lots of water I brought 3 liters, drank 2. A nice hat helps also, you're in the sun the whole way. Enjoy the final destination the water was hot and beautiful.

Excellent trail to a hidden gem right outside of the Inland Empire. Was even able to see some desert bighorn tracks! Leave early to beat the heat.

Great trail. Beautiful views of the creek below. There are several other shorter routes in I found out once there. Many signs for no camping but several people started the whole weekend.

We only walked a portion of the trail, probably about 3 miles, but it was pretty (we saw 6 different kinds of butterflies) and the river is flowing really well (the dog LOVED it).

Overall it’s an easy hike. I’d recommend it for anyone that doesn’t mind being out in the sun for too long. If you have sensitive skin I would suggest you to use sunblock and use a hat to protect you from the hot sun. The earlier you start the hike the better. Don’t forget to bring water.
