This point-to-point shuttle hike travels downhill through a lovely wooded canyon that provides shade and solitude. The trail passes a seasonal waterfall and stream, and the views are magnificent. The easy downhill gradient makes this longer hike a great half-day outing. The Chiquito Trail is a wonderful way to take a longer hike with the difficulty rating still set in the easy category. The way to do it is by traveling downhill almost all the way. The trail starts high up in the Santa Ana Mountains and descends through a shady wooded canyon for most of the route. High mountain vistas appear all along the hike and the scenery is superb, especially if you take the hike after the rains, when the land is colorful and in full bloom.
