Cedar Springs Trail to Little Desert Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike to the top of the lovely Desert Divide section of the lower San Jacinto Mountains to the junction with the Pacific Crest Trail. Views in all directions make this one of the most scenic places in all Southern California. Since the mountainside is south and west facing, the best time to get started is before the sun is high in the sky. The route is exposed to the sun, and temperatures quickly can reach scorching in the summertime. However, winter excursions and early jaunts are incredibly rewarding. In winter the westward views extend to the Pacific and the clear azure skies adorn the heavens. Atop the crest, a solitary oak tree provides shade at the junction."
