Trail shared by Eric Ashley

This rocky trail works up the canyon along Tahquitz Creek to reach a seasonal waterfall.

Eric Ashley

Features River/Creek · Views · Waterfall

Family Friendly This is a fairly short hike that shouldn't overly tire out kids. There are also lots of rocks alongside the trail to carefully scramble on.

Hours and dates vary seasonally and there is an entrance fee for each visitor. For more information, click here. Watch out for rattlesnakes.

Description

This rocky singletrack climbs beneath towering canyon walls as it switchbacks past numerous boulders and a collection of scattered shrubs and trees. Just before reaching the high point, it passes by a lovely alcove where a 60-foot seasonal waterfall washes down a weathered rock face.
