The Merigan Fire Road starts at a small parking lot next to a ranger residence on Viejas Boulevard, 0.6 mile east of the main crossroads in Descanso, or 1.1 miles west of Highway 79. You cross an open meadow, climb onto a chaparral-covered slope, and descend a little to enter a strip of live-oak woodland high on the river bank. Don't miss a spur trail on the left, leading to a silted-in diversion dam that has become an artificial waterfall.
