It is a loop hike, returning to the trailhead barely retracing our steps. This moderate hike will start by climbing the Temescal ridge route to the junction with the Skull Rock trail. We will descend into Temescal Canyon past the waterfall. We then pass through a wooded area, back to the parking lot.
• What to bring
Bring two liters of water, light snack, windbreaker and a hat.
• Important to know
– Heavy rain cancels.
– There is parking in Gateway Park, but it costs about $10.00. If you don’t mind walking a bit farther, parking is free on Temescal Canyon Blvd. south of Sunset Boulevard.
