Soledad Canyon Day Use Area reviews

This is a great option for an easy hike close to town. The trail is easy enough for small children, but not stroller or wheelchair accessible. The bulk of the trail is going to be in full sun, so go early or late in the day, or go during fall or spring (always watch out for snakes). The last bit up to the waterfall at the end will likely be shady, and the end is a great resting spot before the trek back to the parking lot. There are a few different trail options to make each visit a little different and there's even the remains of an early 20th century building you can check out.
Great for beginner hikers, or anyone wanting to get a bit of light cardio. Pet friendly. Even though it’s not an intense hike, the views are still great. It’s always super nice to eat your lunch at the spring.
