Jackass Flat & Butler Canyon Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A visit to an ancient Cahuilla Indian village site is the highlight on this long loop hike over mostly gentle terrain. Hidden Spring, about halfway around the loop, nearly always has some surface water but cannot be considered a good source for drinking needs. On foot, follow the four-wheel-drive road heading into Rockhouse Canyon, which initially goes northeast across a low bank. After hooking right and curving left, you’re in the boulder-tossed, lower drainage of Rockhouse Canyon itself, an area prone to flash floods that occasionally render the “road” temporarily impassable for vehicles."
