This is private property and access is sensitive please play nice many hikers will be on this trail during the weekends. The trial is intermediate technical and moderate aerobic. Follow the road up through the school until you come to a gate at the end. Follow the trail up but don't go into the orchard at the first creek crossing stay on the trail. You will cross the creek a couple of times before coming to the switch backs that head up to the punch bowls. Continue up through a small backpackers campground then cross the creek again and end at the punchbowls and play around on the rocks. If you desire jump off a cliff or two into the water before heading back the way you came. Enjoy the downhill and control your descent there could be hikers around the bend.
