Hiking adventure for two
Awesome hike! Drive pass the camping area and you’ll get to a hiking parking lot. The trail is 3 miles round trip, plan accordingly. Can be muddy at some places so probably not the best trail to walk out your favorite pair of shoes. The trail goes through a wonderful canyon full of trees and flowers.
If you don't want to drive 4.5 hrs to Yosemite, try Cooper Canyon Falls which is only 1.5 hrs' drive that offers you snow, shades, rocks, deer, waterfalls! I cannot believe I would see snow this time of the year while it was super hot in south bay! Definitely will come back in hot Jul/Aug!
