East Horsethief Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The steep, eroded trail receives only light maintenance, but it is thankfully open again to visitors seeking a wild experience. This is a highly varied and interesting hike with wildflowers, dense chaparral, and panoramic views from the Main Divide."
--Jerry Schad and David Money Harris, Afoot & Afield: Orange County (Wilderness Press).
