‪I was disappointed to a certain degree with this particular trail. It was not clearly marked and you could easily fall off the beaten path. We were trying to get to Maiden Hair's Fall based on All Trail's recommendation that using Hell's Canyon would be a way to access our point of destination. No, it was not. We did scale several boulders and passed at least 3 palm tree oases but we did not reach our true goal mark.

Overall It was still a good hike but you truly have to pay attention to where you are going or following.‬

‪To park, you must pay the $10 (exact change) parking fee. If you don’t have $10, then stop at the Visitor Center first to pay for parking with a credit card, for example. The first part of the hike is a lot of the same. The scenery doesn’t change much and the hike is quite simple with only a slight incline – with no shade. The second half gets more interesting. You need to climb over rocks and slide down some larger boulders in some cases. In one spot, you need to crawl under an archway on your hands and knees. The trail is not marked and it is difficult to find where the trail is located. You may want to use the All Trails app to make sure you stay on the trail. You eventually make it to a palm grove and a bit further some deciduous trees (for example, maple trees). The waterfall was dry when we were there and had maybe an inch of muddy water in a small puddle underneath. I would recommend you wear long pants on this hike because as you scramble over and under rocks, you may get your legs scraped by the twigs/cactus sticking out in parts (as I did). All in all, it was an interesting hike and I am sure it would be even nicer in the spring with the waterfall and flowers. ‬

‪My husband and I enjoyed a 7 mile hike just past Maiden Hair Falls and back. The trail starts slow and easy then increases in difficulty as you head up into the canyon. The last mile or so requires climbing up and down some large and small boulders. One has to "follow one's nose" as there are no trail markers. Take water and snacks. I would recommend a hat, sunglasses, and hiking boots. We are in our late 60's and reasonably fit. We had no problems. At whatever age, a moderate degree of fitness is required to make it to (and past the falls). There is plenty of parking and two vault toilets at the site. No fees.‬

‪HELLHOLE CANYON is located in Anza Borrego Desert State Park. Hellhole Canyon is not really a canyon. It is more like a shallow valley. The entrance and parking lot are at the edge of Montezuma Valley Road about a mile south of the State Park Visitor Center. Hellhole Canyon Trail extends to the west. But another trail extends to the south from this same parking lot. This other trail goes through a narrow gulch, and it is bursting with flowers during the desert bloom (February, March, and April). During the desert bloom, the flowers in HELLHOLE CANYON have more colors than at the other places that I visited during the desert bloom. The flowers at Hellhole Canyon are blue, pink, violet, yellow, red, and white.

To the north, you can see a distant mountain ridge. What is amazing is that the shape of this mountain ridge looks like the face of folksinger Nina Simone. You can see this mountain ridge from Hellhole Canyon, but the amazing resemblance to this woman is evident only from the trail that leads into GLORIETTA CANYON. And so, what I recommend to all travelers, during the annual Borrego Bloom, is that you visit both Hellhole Canyon and Glorietta Canyon. I am posting my pictures of the mountain ridge that looks like Nina Simone, where I took the photo from Glorietta Canyon. Also, you can see the same mountain ridge from my viewing spots at Hellhole Canyon, but here the mountain ridge does not look like Nina Simone.

‪We decided to hike here on our last day in Borrego Springs because we knew there would be some desert flowers still in bloom. We weren't disappointed.We took a small trail to the left of the main trail, just off the parking lot. It gradually split into two trails and went up a gentle slope. We found yellow poppies, Desert Chicory, Desert Dandelion and Arizona Lupine. It's a short 30-45 minute walk round trip if you have part of an afternoon left.The main Hellhole Canyon Trail is much more challenging..‬

‪The Hellhole Canyon Trail is a delight, especially with the wildflowers blooming. The trail head is easy to find just a short way from the Anza-Borrego Visitor Center and has portable toilets and a nice bench to sit on if you need it when you finish. The first two miles of the hike is really easy, being that it is on a wide, sandy path through meadows of wild flowers. Then the hike becomes challenging. The way is not always clear with generally two routes around numerous obstacles. Starting at about the first set of palm trees, there are big rock formations that must be scaled or a way found around. You pass in and out of the creek bed (shallow) several times on the way up. We found the most direct route sometimes to entail crawling through a passageway under a large boulder. It is doable and when you get to the end you find Maidenhair Falls in a small grotto that is shady and cool and a nice change from the desert sun and heat. There is a nice rock to stand on to have your picture with the falls and we encountered several people here more than willing to oblige with the camera duties. On the way back you get wonderful vistas of the desert below. We thoroughly enjoyed the hike.‬

‪So I hiked this alone later afternoon and ended up being the last one out which was maybe in retrospect not my smartest choice LOL. I had already decided it was too hot to attempt to go all the way to the falls alone so thats what I opted for a later start to avoid the heat. The flowers and scenery are lovely and I made it all the way to palm grove and stream easily following the trail HOWEVER at that golden hour I heard a mountain lion growl, I did not look for it because it unnerved me. I assumed its was a wild cat because when I got back to my campsite I read further hikers reviews and confirmed activity in that area. So be alert, later in the day when critters want to come out after the heat.

Also, when I was hiking back down I ALMOST went off the trail and took a wrong turn because so many options in areas, so just pay attention. There is a pretty good incline going up, much easier coming down so avoid the heat of the day and PACK a lot of water.‬

‪My wife and I recently hiked Hellhole Canyon. The wildflowers were quite nice and the hike adequately challenging, The trail in the canyon isn't especially easy to follow but if you keep heading upstream you can't go too far wrong. Some boulder hopping required!‬

‪We started from the parking lot at the State Park Headquarters which added another 2 miles or so but well worth it to walk amongst the wildflowers. Hellhole Canyon itself is fairly straightforward hiking until you get to the first oasis when it becomes slower going because one must navigate around and/or over large boulders. The oasis in the canyon is kind of cool with its cluster of palm trees hugging the water source. The waterfall is pretty - not spectacular as it's barely 20 feet high but it sits in a nice grotto with pretty ferns growing down each side.‬

‪My friend Arnie and I hiked this trail in March during the wildflower superbloom and it was beautiful. The first half of the trail is a gradual uphill stroll through rocks, cactus and colorful flowers. About halfway up you reach a rocky section and the going gets tougher as you begin "climbing" over large boulders and crossing a small stream several times. The goal is to reach the falls at the end of the trail, something I ALMOST accomplished had it not been for my boots being unable to get a good grip on the slick rocks. I was within sight but will make it next time. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes and take LOTS of water, you'll need it. ‬
