Beautiful! We hiked Sunday of the President s day weekend, between the storms, so everything was lush, green and growing. I was glad we hiked it in cooler weather because while the first appropriately 3 miles has cover, the remaining 8 are fairly exposed, so hiking in the summer could even more challenging due to exposure to heat. Beautiful hike with an exceptional view of the Ojai Valley.
Trail starts out fairly easy with lots of creek crossings. Once you start the climb it only continues to get steeper. Lots of sections with loose gravel so can be slippery at spots. Would recommend for only experienced hikers. Trekking poles would be helpful. Beautiful views and poppies starting to bloom 2/12/17
Lots of water after the recent rainfall we had. It's muddy though. Trail head has restrooms and campsites...good place for a picnic. We took our 3 month old with us the hardest part was crossing a few small creeks. The lake is more like a large pond but the restroom by the lake is much cleaner.
