Water report in Chinquapin Flat / Tahquitz Creek?

Postby TimeTravla » Sun Jun 05, 2016 1:30 pm

I am heading up Devil's Slide trail to camp in that area below Tahquitz Peak next weekend (6/10-6/12) and wondering if anyone has seen if Tahquitz Creek is flowing through that area still?

Plan is to camp there 2 nights and day hike the peak on Saturday. No water in the area would definitely force a change in plan.

Saw on another thread that Wellman's Cienega was trickling.
Anyone know if the pipes are flowing by Round Valley?

Hi, I camped in Tahquitz Meadow last week and there's some water trickling in Tahquitz creek in two places that we could find. The better source was just off the trail west of our campsite and south of the trail that goes up to join with the PCT. Head down towards the meadow and the creek and you should be able to find it pretty easily once you're down there. The other pretty stagnant source is in the creek bed above the PCT where it joins with the aforementioned trail. Hope that helps!
