South Fork Trail San Jacinto River

South Fork Trail (San Jacinto River) Professional Review and Guide

"This trail combines great views of the San Jacinto Mountains from a lovely promontory with a wonderful descent into a lush canyon, complete with wildlife and fishing opportunities. Here the beauty of the San Jacinto’s South Fork is more than evident; it is all encompassing. The area is slated for possible wilderness designation, and the big-cone Douglas fir trees complement the cottonwoods and willows that line the riverbanks. The scene appears more East Coast than Southern California desert. Many plant and animal species claim the streambanks as their home, including mountain lions and bald eagles."
