Hiking
In the Cleveland National Forest
Quick hike with a huge reward! Be prepared to scramble over rocks and wear good shoes. Dog Friendly. Falls are seasonal depending on the rain. Ask me if the falls are running. Still a fun and easy hike with awesome boulders and views whether wet or dry. Driving distance about 2 miles.

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH before attempting this hike! I have not done it myself, but many have and photo-journalized about their experience. An old relic of a never-famous hot springs town from a bygone era.

Down the mountain to the East - it's Southern CA's largest natural lake. This is the harshest part of the drive on Ortega Highway 74, yet there are breathtaking skyline views for the daring. Boating and recreation at lakefront Launch. And that's about it ;)
