I would say this is more of a moderate hike and kid friendly if your children are 10+. It's difficult to tell if you are on the trail, also prepare for some rock climbing.

Desolate place. I thought the hike was not easy, maybe I missed the trail. I had to do some rock climbing/bush whacking to get ahead. Road is closed into the campground, so park on the Golden State Hwy. Couple of tables at the campground, with bathroom not far away. Some water at this time of the year, but it is green, algae filled.

The trail starts at a roads end. I actually didn't follow the trail southward and instead ventured northward . The main road has many little side ventures leading to streams on both sides of the road (starts on left then is on right). There are some more technical paths to take but I was just feeling the place out. Even came to a bee honey keep back in. Was a fun experience which yielded many fantastic shots

A short but beautiful hike along a creek in a shady valley.
