When I read that this is the most popular trail in the Ojai area I was expecting and easy walk up the canyon. Wrong! This is a rugged hike with some rock-hopping and scrambling over boulders – very tough. Part of the trail was washed away a few years ago but new routes have been established. This beautiful canyon has been marred by imbeciles with spray paint, overwhelmed to a point where it seems hopeless that it will ever return to something natural and pristine. Still, a good day of hiking.
