Amble along shady trails, across creeks, and through meadows while enjoying scenic vistas of sandstone formations in a seemingly uninhabited portion of Southern California. This trail offers something for everyone: Verdant foliage, waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and boulder-hopping are a few of the perks associated with this trail. The most coveted aspect of this hike is The Grotto, a subterranean cave only attainable by scrambling down capacious boulders. Personal skill is not going to be the only deciding factor in this endeavor, because water levels and seasonal changes in the creek will likely be the preeminent element in your venture.
