Just hiked here yesterday. It’s starting to get HOT but it was still an awe inspiring experience to turn the corner and be at the base of these majestic rock formations! Definitely will be back, hope to backpack into Sespe.

Awesome get away from city life. Great valley view and nature walk. Definitely worth every second but there are decent rivers to cross.

Easy hike, chances for some bouldering and bird watching.
Does anyone know where the native rock art is to be found?

Super fun family hike. No poison oak, mostly wide and well marked trails. Lots of variety, views, water crossings. Little to no shade so bring plenty of water or save this one for a day it's not too hot. Does require an Adventure Pass from the Ranger Station. The Piedra Blanca rock formations are spectacular once you're upon them. We climbed them up as far as we felt we could safely do so and made it up a good ways. Highly recommend this hike.

Brought my family our here for an afternoon hike to explore a new area on a relatively flat hike to these cool rock formations. We enjoyed the hike out and explored the area a bit upon arrival. Neat area and definitely more to explore later on the Sespe River Trail, Lions Camp, Falls, etc.

Nice hike into the Sespa wilderness. Fun creek crossings (4 of them!). The rocks are amazing. Pure sandstone formed into behemoth boulders. Great trail maintainance. Well marked.

Just a hop skip and jump from Rose Valley Falls, this was an excellent second stop and hike. Interesting rocks and nice views.We enjoyed the solitude on the trail.
