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. Note that this trail crosses with many other trails in the area. Please look at map and GPS along the way to stay on the right track.Show more

Make sure at the barn you take the left and drive up as far as you can, the trail is a gravel road all the way to the top. You need a discovery pass. The route has view of the River and Oregon. During the right time of year the hill side is littered with wild flowers. Show more
