Pine Valley Mountains: Forsyth Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"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."

This is a lovely canyon hike that you can do at any skill level and it's great for dogs too. The views of the canyon walls coupled with the trees and vegetation makes for a nice trip on a hot summer day. There's creeks and a tiny waterfall as well and lots of rocks for scrambling if you choose to.
