Looking for a hiking spot on our way from San Jose to LA my husband found this place. I have to confess to being a little freaked out, the road down there seems deserted and I honestly thought I was being followed by a serial killer haha. After a long one lane road trip past a few deserted ranches you reach a brand new pristine visitors center. We watched a short film on the area there, a must do before you go hiking. It was hot when we left, but after hiking in about a half a mile it cooled a bit. We did the balconies trail and went through the cave. It was so cool. It looks like a giants playground. One of the rocks looks like a dogs head and there is another that looks like a tug boat. The caves are fun. I am very afraid tights spots but it was worth it. You definitely need a flashlight. The course wasn't very hard, young kids would love it, mine did. It's nature's playground. The whole round trip was about 2.5 miles.
