This trip offers a grand tour of the Santa Rosa Plateau including the vernal ponds, the historic adobes, and the volcanic mesas, culminating with a panoramic view from Monument Hill. If you have a full day to hike, this is a great way to see many of the diverse features in the reserve. The trail also features fine views of San Jacinto Peak, San Gorgonio Mtn., and Mt. Baldy, the three tallest peaks ringing the Los Angeles Basin. There are many variations possible, so you can shorten or lengthen the trip as you prefer.
