San Juan Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Dramatic bluffs, oak woodland and grand vistas are all rewards of this long loop over the wall of San Juan Canyon and along the canyon bottom. You could power through the loop and use it as a conditioning hike for, say, that upcoming High Sierra trek, or you can spend most of a pleasant day touring a less-visited side of the park. Sometimes the trails in these parts aren’t maintained as well as others in the park; you hiking short wearers might just get your legs brush-whacked. Clear-day views from atop the high canyon walls are superb and take in the summits of the Santa Ana Mountains, the OC-LA lowlands and even the Pacific Ocean."
