Tenaja Falls Trail

First time up Tenaja Trailhead and I had a great time. The hike to the waterfull is very short and an easy hike there. the trail to the waterfall is a little under a mile and only took about an hour to get there. I did not get to see a huge waterfall but it was still a beauty. since it was a short hike we kept walking off a smaller beaten path and went on for about 3-4 miles. Didn't see much but some fresh Mountain lion claw prints. only for the adventurous after that.

Beautifully maintained trail all the way to four corners. Pigeon Springs which is near the end about a mile before four corners is a nice place to stop and eight. Once onto the Old Verdugo truck trail the hike flattens out and travels through thick woods of scrub oaks. Very nice hike.

San Juan Loop Trail

We were in the area and saw the trail head for San Juan Loop Trail. After already going on a few hikes that day we decided to check it out and we were all glad we did. We started this trail with the path to the right by the Trail Map sign, it was a nice gradual decent with a few switch backs down into the canyon. The canyon area was very covered with a nice Oak Glen at the middle way point on this trail. The trail itself was pretty shaded most of the way which was nice. As others have mentioned it wasn't extremely busy and the trail was for the most part clean and graffiti free (something that is getting harder and harder to find in SoCal, pity.). Once you reach the campground you have a final push up a slight grade back into the parking lot. This was a very enjoyable hike and through short (2.2 miles) the scenery was great. I plan on doing this hike again when I'm in the area and maybe check out the Chiquito trail as well (which branches off at the middle way point).

El Cariso Nature Trail

This was a nice little hike that is great to do with kids. The distance was perfect even for the littlest of hikers and with signs along the way to read and learn about the Flora and Fauna it made it a great educational hike. Do take the time to stop by the Fire Fighters Memorial as it was quite impressive. The Visitor center was closed when we went but it looks like that would add to the experience and information gathering. If you are looking for a short easy hike to get the kiddos into the sunshine and learn about nature, this would be a perfect fit.
