Aztec Falls 6 21 14

First day of summer we hiked on out to Aztec Falls for some cliff jumping madness. Got a huge posse together and brought my main jumpers Skorch, Oscar and Duncan to hurt themselves for the crowd. Aztec Falls is along Deep Creek in Lake Arrowhead.

Directions: 210 east to 18 north and then east for 18 miles to Crest Park. Drive 3.1 miles north on State Road 173 through Lake Arrowhead to Hook Creek Road. Travel 3 miles east on Hook Creek, then bear left a short distance on Squint Ranch Road to a right-hand descent that leads .45 miles to Splinter’s Cabin and access to the Pacific Crest Trail. Cross the creek and hike .4 miles north (downstream) on the PCT to some trees with a trail on the right. This is the trailspur that leads to the swimmin spot.
