Check Out Tahquitz Falls
When you see this 50 foot waterfall you will be immediately impressed. For Southern California I would say this is one of the better waterfalls in the area. It falls beautifully over the rock face and down into a pretty deep pool. The pool also has a large rock that you can swim out to and climb on if you feel so inclined.
If you want to go all the way out to the rock know that you will be in water up to your chest, and the rock itself looked pretty hard to pull yourself up.
Did you know – Tahquitz Falls (Water Falling Down) Originally named Pal hani kalet by Ca wis ke on ca, leader of the Fox Tribe who first settled here over 2000 years ago. This is a place of power. When you enter you are tired and weak, when you leave you are rejuvenated and energized.
A few points of interest along the trail …
After taking a bunch of pictures and enjoying the serenity, make the loop back on the trail. The way back provides some beautiful views of the canyon with the city in the background.
It may feel weird to pay for a 2 mile hike, that being said we doubt you will be disappointed with your decision.
Starting Oct. 1, the Canyons are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Beginning July 7, Tahquitz Canyon and the Indian Canyons will only be open to the public 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Sept. 30.
