If you don't want to deal with hopping rocks to get across, just take off your shoes and walk through. ;-)

Trip Notes: The trip was awesome! Everyone had a great time. The weather was perfect for hiking. It was a little cold for chilling out at the Punchbowl, especially with the spray and mist from the waterfall. As you can see, the water was really brown. Mostly from the heavy rains we have had this year. Another interesting note is that the depth of the Punchbowl was only about 7 ft. In previous trips and word of mouth from others, we have measured the depth and found it to be 25+ feet deep. Eric had an interesting theory of why it was so shallow. It's based off of the Southern California Wild Fires and all of the debris that washed in from the heavy rains this year. Over all, the trip was a wonderful experience and an extremely fun adventure.
