Hey all,

I was planning on checking out DCHS for the first time in a few weeks. A friend of mine mentioned that, while nudity is allowed on the trail from Bowen Ranch and at the springs. he had run into some hostility from clothed hikers.

Has anyone on here had a similar experience? I've heard DCHS is one of the best free-hiking experiences in SoCal, but don't want to encounter trouble.

Depends on what you mean by "trouble" and "hostility". I and members of my family have hiked nude down the trail from Bowen Ranch for many years and have never had a single problem. Occasionally a clothed hiker will do a double take, but we have never encountered any "hostility".

Your best bet is to not go on the weekends, because it is too crowded and there are more clothed hikers and swimsuit soakers. During the weekdays you will find conditions a lot better, so feel free to safely free hike!
