  • Beautiful scenery I love the hiking trails. You have to come back multiple times to even try and discover everything. I would advise to bring a truck or a 4x4 because road can get soft and cars won't be able to make it to the mouth of the canyon.
  • One of my favorite places to visit when I am in Southern California. Incredibly amazing geology, with canyons towering 200 feet above you. Some of these canyons are barely wide enough to walk through. The most important thing to be aware of is the chance of flash flooding. If there are thunderstorms in the mountains to the east don’t go! Wintertime is definitely the best time to go through this area as it gets very hot after April.
