Grueling AND rewarding!

we attempted to get to the peak bit there was way too much snow on the trail and it was impassable. we made it to the ranger station which is about two miles from the peak. we talked to fellow hikers on the trail who said the same thing that they wanted to do the peak also but there was too much snow. the ranger we spoke to thinks the snow will be around till July. also the snow made it hard to follow the trail and at times we were off the trail. be careful where you step as the snow is deep and I ended up falling in up to my waist few times. overall still a great hike!

Trail is well maintained. Some cool spots for photos. Waterfall is sweet as well

Loved the scenic canyon, waterfall, and fast moving stream.

Backpacked this trail in 2009 and it was hard but not too crazy, it was snowing and we had to use snowshoes to move better all in all a great overnighter!

Great views. Full exposure so bring plenty of water. I agree with previous post as to direction. It's nice to end at the oasis.

Interesting rock formations. Great view of Tahquitz Canyon and the waterfall.

Just starting out but FYI it opens at 8:00 am because it's on Indian Reservation and it's $9 per person. Seniors are $7
