Rivers & Creeks - Cajon Pass

Cajon Creek

About midway through the Cajon Pass, at the bottom of the canyon there is a perennial creek that flows out of a treed marsh area. This is Cajon Creek. It winds down and around for a mile or two, then splashes around in the rocks and boulders and percolates into the stony alluvium.

This was the first water after descending the steep divide at the edge of the Mojave. The flow was steady and of a good amount to amply meet the needs of traders, pioneers and passing livestock drives.
