      I didn’t realize this was in the San Gorgonio Wilderness until I got back and read more on the website. ¬†Looks like that qualifies it for a trip report posted here. ūüôā

      The road to the trailhead was washed out earlier this Feb in the “Valentine’s Day Flood”. ¬†Thanks to some videos that showed up in my feed, I learned that the road was repaired and reopened Nov 1st.

      Loaded both dogs in the car and made the 1.75hr trip up to the trailhead. ¬†Very nice location. ¬†Very scenic ponds and nice walking paths. ¬†Has both covered and uncovered picnic areas and full bathrooms. ¬†Parking lot is a bit small (maybe 50 spots?) so get there early. ¬†They open at 8:00am. ¬†It’s free to park there.

      We walked to Red Dome (4 mile RT) and added a bit of walking once we got there. ¬†Easy hike in. ¬†Weather was perfect. ¬†Don’t go if it’s going to rain. ¬†I imagine that’s the last place you want to be in a flash flood situation.

      I’ll want to go back and do the 13mile RT hike to the Mission Creek Stone House some day.

      Here’s some pics.
