Strenuous hike due to altitude, amazing views.

I loved the hike. It is a tranquil and scenic hike that leads you to a waterfall. There are a lot of hummingbirds in the area. It is worth the trip and price.

Wide Trail and elevation climbs are spread out. Waterfall was a fun treat.

Took us 3.5-4 hours to get to Murray’s Peak and back down. When we got to the half way point my husband wasn’t sure about going all the way. (Very hard climbing at the half way point) It does get easier after that and is well worth the effort. Very little shade so be prepared and try to go on an overcast day.

Started at Ramon to Museum and back again. Nice hike and views.

Easy hike with rewarding waterfall

Great super easy hike. I like to take visitors from out of town here. Awesome when the waterfall is flowing huge..went yesterday with my dad and still some decent water flow..nothing raging and water levels around pool area super low..best to go in late spring when all snow has melted off San Jacinto Peak. Still beautiful though. I’ve run into rattle snakes here in summer time. Disappointed to see people leaving their trash along trail...people are just so disrespectful.
Pack it in and out folks!! The sign even says so!!

went here in the snow and it was fantastic!

Hardest day hike I have ever done! I was not in the best of shape so it took 14.5 hours for me to summit. I was cramping out towards the end of the first 8000 ft. I stretched out at the ranger station and gutted the rest of the hike out. I want to improve my time and do it again in October which is when we went in 2017. I do not recommend doing it in the summer months. No water until the tram and I used every drop of the 4 liters I carried with me by the time I got there.

Pretty but really freaking crowded with people who know zilch about trail etiquette.

Tough hike for the beginner. Made it to Wellman’s Divide but had to turn back cause I was spent and couldn’t make it up the peak before the sun went down but still great views and a great trail. Snow was great too!

What a great surprise with the waterfall! The rain a few nights ago really was wonderful!!

Awesome hike for the serious, well prepared only. Super steep, long, and treacherous at upper elevations with snow. Very challenging, very rewarding. Cold beers at the tram station are on me! Enjoy

One of my favorites. If you are in peak shape and have an extra 4 hours to blow then take this trail. Or take it easy and explore. It’s so fun! It can get busy but too bad past Welmans.

One the hardest yet beautiful hikes I’ve ever done. This ones a challenge. I don’t regret anything, view at the end is just amazing.

We did this hike yesterday! it was beautiful and good Hike! There was $12.50 admission fee per person. A little pricey in my opinon. But I'm glad to say we did it.

Great hike, go early even in January it gets hot.

Great hike w/ a steady climb. Friendly people, while not too crowded. Will definitely do it again.

Beautiful trail. Great hike!
Make sure to check in at the ranger station before you head up the trail.
