Description

The beginning of the trail is reached by hiking up the Dripping Springs trail .25 mile. The Wildhorse trail then climbs through a pair of switchbacks and then begins a climbing traverse along the south canyon wall of Arroyo Seco Creek. At about 3 miles, the trail traverses away from Arroyo Seco Creek and starts southward. The trail contours through the head of several small drainages and to the west of Agua Point.At about the 6 mile point, the trail descends back into the Arroyo Seco creek drainage near the Crosley Homestead. The trail in this section becomes obscure. Please use care to remain on the trail as it traverses near private land. After crossing an access road for the private land, it passes through a small wooden gate and begins a gradual climb to the southwest. After a mile or so the trail departs the ridge and traverses up a narrow ravine with lots of shade. The climb through the big cone douglas fir and coulter pines continues until the terminus is reached. The trail ends at Crosley Saddle where it junctions with the Palomar-Magee and Cutca Trails. Campsites are few and far between. The only available water (seasonal) along the trail is near the wood gate. Camping is not encouraged in this area due to proximity of private land. (A visitor pass is required for overnight stays in the backcountry. Campfires are not permitted at any time).
