Webster Trail

Webster Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is an ideal outing for a cool winter or spring day. You start under Je?rey pines and live oaks, drop down slopes covered with chaparral swiftly growing back after a ?re, and reach a secluded part of the creek spotted with tall pines, oaks, and alders.

Try it after a rain, when the streams run full and the aroma of damp chaparral perfumes the air. Allow plenty of time for the return trip—it’s all uphill. The trail is steep and gravelly, so boots with good tread are recommended."

"The Webster Trail plunges steeply down a ridge into the secluded canyon carved by the North Fork of the San Jacinto River. The river is a great place to take a dip on a moderately warm day and you will likely have it to yourself. An ideal time to visit is shortly after a good rain in the spring but don’t underestimate the steep, shadeless climb on your return. Carry plenty of water and wear boots with good tread or use a hiking pole to help with the loose footing."
