North Fork of the San Jacinto River Professional Review and Guide
"The San Jacinto River is fed by small springs dotting the upper reaches of the mountain, which coalesce and flow down the west side. By the time it reaches Highway 243, it has grown into a modest but dependable stream tumbling down between boulders. In the springtime, the banks are lined with wildflowers. Water-loving trees hug the edge, while oaks, incense cedars, and pines grow tall on the slopes above. This part of the river is a great place to take a saunter while visiting the Idyllwild area. Although this is a short hike, it becomes strenuous near the end because the trail can be steep and poorly defined. Wear boots with good traction."
