I am here for work and by myself- so I wanted a safe, clearly marked. Trafficked trail and it was exactly that! Met a few friendly people along the way too who gave me the helpful hint of always stay to the left!! (There are several splits and you don't want to go to the right).
I got there on Sunday at about 7:30 am and barely found parking as someone was leaving. By 9 when I left people were parked a good half mile down the road.
very nice trail alot of shaded areas, incline here and there very family friendly hike, cold spring canyon trail leads to hot springs canyon trail. we found about 3 hot springs, and a few small waterfalls with a few lil water holes. Be careful cause there is Poison oak throughout the trail. The entire trail was very beautiful many flowers bloomed and a lot of greenery
