Trail is difficult, like the sign says. 1300 elevation gain in about 2 miles. Very overgrown with ticks, needs maintenance. Singletrack and mainly for motorcycles.

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.

We tried lions this morning with my wife and kids . The first water crossing was in passable . Walked up and down stream but no luck . May want to wait to hit this one till it dries up a little! Or be ready to get wet !! We will try this one again cause it looks like a great trail

Be ready for water crossings !

Falls are full tons of water must see awesome today

THE TRAIL WAS TOTALLY DESTROYED IN THE 2016 WILDFIRE! Refer to the Ventana Wilderness Alliance site for further details, but it will be years before the trail will be restored due to its limited popularity.

It's very muddy right now so be careful. We tried to come down the south face via a Google Map Forest Trail that no longer exists. Wild but we made it.
