Overview

The trail begins at the "California Nature Trail" and continues on to follow the canyon ridge. There are two possible ways down from the ridge of the canyon. High traffic during vacation times, holidays, and weekends. Careful not to follow a natural water path instead of the trail.

Description

The trailhead is at the very end of the road in the park. There are some markings but not many. It is very easy to get off on a wrong path on the NW side of the trail. Careful not to fall off an edge, however repelling and rock climbing is available at this park. The trail is awesome in the fall season. The trail is partially maintained, more on the Western side of the canyon than the Eastern. There are multiple great view points along the canyon. Small climbs in elevation, not too bad. Take your time and enjoy the amazing views.

Flora & Fauna

There are small ground cactus all around this park known by their common name prickly pears (Opuntia spp.).
