Long description

This Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) hike is through the canyon and riverbeds along the year-round Whitewater River. The route is mainly on the PCT with lots of sand, gravel, and rocks. A walking stick or poles and hiking boots are recommended due to unstable footing. There are restrooms and water at and near the Ranger Station but none on the trail. Pets are welcome on leash with clean-up. The canyon is located between Banning and Palm Springs, so it can be warm any time of year. Sunscreen and water are a must!
