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

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.

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

I went with a friend - we spent a bit of time looking for the hike, it was on a trail behind a campsite that was being occupied. From the highway, follow all of the signs all the way until you reach the parking lot....More
