Description

The trail starts at a junction with the PCT. After some switchbacks, the straightaway, and then some more switchbacks, you'll find the Little Round Valley campgrounds, which have restrooms. Get through the switchbacks and meet up with the tramway trail to make the final push to the summit of San Jacinto Peak.

Watch your footing on this trail, as the tread can be a mix of dirt and rocks.

Flora & Fauna

Jeffrey pine is abundant throughout this area.
