Really appreciated the beautiful transitions this trail had to offer. The moment I pulled up to the gate (got there 20 minutes before opening) I could see Bighorn high on the cliff sides surrounding the parking/picnic area. Started along the Pacific Crest Trail then branched off towards Rainbow Rock Canyon.
Rock colors and striations were cool, but keep going....the best is yet to come. Dense green foliage and a nice multi tiered waterfall, complete with a ladder and ropes to get a full sense of immersion.
Great, easy/moderate hike.
You’ll need lots of bug repellent for the last half mile.
