This is a beautiful hike past Second Water and through part of Boulder Canyon Tr 103, especially now with all the flowers out. Our group did it as a key exchange, but you should be aware that the southerly route is about 600 feet more aeg than the north. Saw one rattler near the saddle just south of Canyon Lake. There is a great view of Battleship Mtn. and some great rock formations along the way. Ran into quite a few people near the trailheads but was pretty quite in the middle. This will be a hot hike in few weeks.
