Hauser Canyon Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The linear, V-shaped gash of Hauser Canyon cuts across one of the really remote parts of the county. Years ago, the public could descend into the canyon by way of a dirt road from Lake Morena Drive and reach a Forest Service campground. Today, the east end of this road is blocked by a locked gate, and the west end is washed out. Nowadays, the canyon is visited only by hikers, undocumented migrants, and Border Patrol agents pursuing those migrants. The stroll down oak- and sycamore-lined Hauser and Cottonwood creeks will be your reward for putting up with a long, somewhat uneventful approach (and return) on the Pacific Crest Trail."
