This hike will be predominately off-trail. The wilderness inside Mt. San Jacinto Park has many unique features that can’t be experienced while on the normal trail. In some places the terrain will be steep and slippery due to fallen tree debris.
This hike will be led by Wilderness Patrollers members of the Hasty Search and Rescue Team at Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness.
