Pine Valley Mountains: Forsyth Canyon Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Just outside the hamlet of Pine Valley is Forsyth Canyon with its simple, easy-to-follow hiking trail. Dogs will be surprised at how different this trail is from the Whipple Trail only a few miles away. The Whipple Trail is soft and gentle, while the Forsyth Canyon Trail is harsher, with dried juniper trees, cactus, and sand for the first mile before following a streambed through rocks and boulders. Whipple is pretty and Forsyth is more dramatic and diverse. There are several trails to choose from leaving this trailhead, but Forsyth is the only one with year-round water."
