Excellent trail. Nice climb on the way up. Waterfall at the end. Nice shady (depends on time of day) return.

There really no shade. Best to hike before 6 am and it dog friendly. A lot of locals love it

I did this loop by mistake. As a newbie, I missed the PCT trail in saddle junction (the direct route to Tahquitz Peak) and followed signs toward Tahquitz meadow. It all worked out in the end as the All Trails app got me to where I was going all the same :) it was a strenuous hike for my pup and I especially since we carried a ton of water but beautiful trail & spectacular views from the top!

I hated this trail. Probably the worst we’ve done. Completely pointless.

Fairly busy, but this approach to Jacinto is a good training hike for the longer approach from Idyllwild and from the desert floor. While it may be cheating, it’s a gorgeous hike from the top of the tram, and I would definitely recommend completing this approach before others, especially if you are hesitant!

This trail ends at a private property gate so absolutely think about it as a complete out and back. We left at 7 am today and it was already 80 degrees. Even though the forecast said cloudy we had a blazing hot desert sun beating down on us all morning. We didn't complete the full trip back as we followed a small ephemeral creek trail down to a water tank. That larger trail ALSO ends at private property. There is a very narrow, steep trail that runs into another dry creek bed that we followed to the road then took the sidewalk back to the car. Ended up being 6.6 miles total. Start early, bring lots of water, and maybe try this one earlier in the season (March) when the morning weather is more forgiving. It's considered a "must do" in Palm Springs, but frankly the view of the valley isn't charming enough to justify it. Not a favorite, but now I can say I did it.

Exceptional hike — the waterfall is beautiful at the half point of the loop trail. There’s a small waterfall prior to the 6ft water fall that was lovely. The hike is steep and it’s not shaded majority of the time. There are many view points to enjoy. Definitely, recommend this hike when there’s less people to simply enjoy the sounds of the waterfall. We plan on returning.

Gorgeous hike, and a nice easy way to bag the second highest peak in Southern California.

Had a good time at this trail, specially with the prize at the end: a refreshing waterfall. It was very hot (100 degrees) when I did this hike. I would advise to be aware of the heat at this place. I did notice on Sunday, the parking lot was empty after 1pm. I guess that would be a good time to come if you want to avoid crowds.

HikingGreat!

Very similar to other reviews, this is a great hike that's easy to do and has amazing vistas, but there are some things to note. One is that this trail is not 10.7 but closer to 12. Second is the stretch of dirt road that's not clearly identified in the description. If you're starting from Humber Park then going down this road can be painful on the knees. Second, is that AllTrails failed to notify us to take Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail. This is one of many failures with the app!

Great trail, if you go in the morning you have shade most of the way. You can see we’re the fires where and wild birds.

We did the entire loop and then some. The parking lot was full so we ended up parking near the creek about .25 miles down. On our walk to up we followed he bottom part of the loop then deviated from the road after yellow post to a zig zag trail that was gorgeous. We came out on the private road then were back on track. While we were exhausted and the elevation was intense on the knees, hips, and feet, the view and accomplishment made it worth the pain. Have fun!
