The hike takes you past a waterfall, up through rocks and oaks to another waterfall to get to some beautiful views. There is a lot of poison oak, so leave your pant legs on and don't let your hands dangle aimlessly into tall vegetation along the trail. There is an rock arch that seems out of place in the environment, don't plan on getting too close it is clearly marked off.

Wrong time of year to go. Too hot and dry, but beautiful. Will try it again in the spring

Nearly all vegetation is dried out. The arch isn't very visible. The other aspects of the trail are along the portion where you would end up walking over 4 miles and end up far from your car leaving you to either do a return trip through this desert landscape or walk along a country road with no shoulder and people speeding along.
