Forgot to press record we did this with our 7 year old little girl and 3 year old golden retriever very scenic and the running water is amazing!!!
Our favourite hike so far. Very scenic. We saw the desert big horn sheep. The trail is easy to navigate. The hillside is super green right now. The cactus are ready to bloom in a week or two. Started the hike at 0900 and it was sure heating up.
Perfect weather, great views and the flowing water was beautiful.
It was a nice lil hike. A bit strenuous, if you haven't hiked in a while or are just starting out
Great hike. The climb up worked us, but well worth it. View of the canyon is unparalleled. Cool view of the windmills down below.
Spectacular vistas of mountains, desert, and dramatic river canyon. The semi-arduous climb to the top of the trail does bring up some risk/reward questions. Can't imagine doing it anywhere around summer. Does feature crossings of a pretty much year round stream - a rarity in this area. And the area around the ranger station is beautiful in fall.
Very beautiful hike. The PCT trails are a great workout and very dog friendly.
Easy to access and park. Dramatic canyon and creek scenery. A perfect early morning summer hike! There were points alongside the creek in which one could almost swim but definitely splash around. Clear, chilly water. The hike up the hills past the creek area also affords some awesome views. Lots of great spots for picnics; just bring lots of bug repellent.
