Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

Elevation: 400-1,715 feet

Distance: 6.4 miles round trip

Estimated Time: 2.5- 3 hours

This trail meanders primarily along dense riparian vegetation with occasional vista breaks. The trail is 6.4 miles round trip and is rated moderate to difficult. This trail is best in the spring when wild flowers are abundant and water levels are high. Be cautious of poison oak, which prevails throughout the canyon year round. Follow San Luis Obispo Creek down stream to see two small water falls, the second cascading in front of a 70 foot deep cave. The trail climbs up to a meadow filled with rusted metal sculptures and a rope swing, before reaching the top of High School Hill. There is even a hidden rock bench at the top.
