No Dogs within the Preserve

The Canyon,
Nestled among the Little San Bernardino Mountains, the desert oasis at Big Morongo Canyon is one of the 10 largest cottonwood and willow riparian (stream) habitats in California. The upstream end of the canyon lies in the Mojave Desert, while its downstream portion opens into the Colorado Desert.

It is not unusual for us to see deer, bobcat and our favorite Scrub Jay.

THE HIKES:

We will hike about 3 miles. The trail is all on dirt path. Some soft sand. The trail follows a stream for most of the length of our journey. The late morning heat/sun exposure and elevation gain upon our return plus the overall length of the journey is what makes this trail moderate for most people.
