    Great hike. Lots of shade throughout. The hike itself is definitely not as hard as the reviews claim it to be. I would do this one a few more times.

    Excellent hide, first bit (up to PCT) is quite difficult, be careful not to go off trail as I did.

Marion Mountain Campground to Deer Springs Camp, Riverside County, CA, USA
Yikes this trail starts off steep from the get go! We took a wrong turn from the beginning so follow signs and will be good. The trail is definitely tough terrain. There are lots of rocks, boulders and even some trees that you have to maneuver over and around. Once you get to the top it was all worth it. The trail is shaded so that helps with the heat. It was beautiful at the top! So worth it!!
