This is an awesome and deep little black-rock canyon. Waterfalls are beautiful whenever they're flowing which they weren't while we were here this month, but we still had a blast working our way into this canyon and free-climbing out. I jumped into the deep and...More

Beautiful area about 30 minute drive from Enesenada. The trails are poorly marked, and it's only about a 20 minute walk to the falls (or the area where they apparently occasionally run), but you can hike beyond that if you want. There is a steep...More

Really enjoyed the short hike. Directions to the trail are pretty sparse, but walk through the main campground. Once you get to the falls (in season) / canyon you need to scramble over some boulders...which I love.

Camping site is just average, it's better as a one day hiking, the good this is that is very close from the border

This is in quite an isolated appearing area behind the city of La Mision on the old road. It is quite dramatic scenery. Don't walk alone and carry water.

I went for the day with my family and it was fun. We enjoyed the hiking trail, walking through the canyon, beautiful views. An effective way to disconnect from the city and enjoy nature.

This is a great little side trip if you are on Federal HIghway 1 (the free road) between Rosarito Beach and Ensenada on your way to the Gudalupe Valley or just to come and do some tent camping. It located at km 76 and there...More

I've been to this place multiple times on the past 15 years. It never disappoints. There's a ranch about a mile off the highway were you pay the owner for parking your car so it's secure. After that, you decide to camp right beside the...More
