Del Dios Gorge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"An ever-steepening trek on a wide, welldefined dirt road up into the Del Dios–area highlands offers a taxing climb rewarded by panoramic views. At the top, the trail hooks into the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve system, which allows for all-day hiking if you choose."

"The historic Lake Hodges Dam and (rarely) rushing water down the gorge."
