San Jacinto Peak via Deer Springs Trail and Marion Mountain Trail
San Jacinto Peak via Marion Mountain Trail is tough hike. Trail surface is very uneven and full of rocks.
There are lots of shades. Round Valley Campsite @ 9720 ft elevation. It has a creek with cold crystal clear water which has no faint odor.
Moderate /Steep climb from trailhead into the first 3 miles.
There are ample of parking right next to trailhead entrance
Listed as 5.6 miles but Gaia GPS said 7.8 miles.
There are plenty of water but need to bring water filter. Bring trekking poles for the descend.
Park across from the water tower. The trailhead starts right there. If you are camping at the Marion Mountain campground, there is also a trailhead there that will connect to the main.
