Ryan suggested this hike to me on Thursday. We discussed the forecast of rain but both decided "let's do it".

Even considering the wet conditions, this was a great hike. We started right at 7:00 AM from the Canyon Lake TH and for the first couple hours we were dry. Luckily for us the rain didn't start till after we passed the final pool of water in the box since skirting by that pool was tricky enough with all the water still running down the area creating for slick conditions. Once past the pools, the rain started, heavy at times then just a drizzle. This repeated until we hit Boulder Canyon. We took our time rock hopping in the wet conditions to avoid any injuries which proved to be a good idea. There were a few choked areas in the canyon but nothing to bad. Lots of running water off the Cavalry Trail. Once we hit the Boulder Canyon trail the breaks in the rain stopped, so we hiked the final 5 miles or so wet and on very muddy trails. My feet were sore from all the rock hopping by the time we got back to the trail head but still, this was one great hike and I am glad the forecast didn't scare us away :y:
