Awesome views quite a few switchbacks do it when it's cool out ,early morning bring water and snacks and sturdy shoes. Also sometimes the mountain bikes really come down that trail fast so if hiking keep alert

Also referred to as the 'motorway', this is the best sustained climb on the south side of the Santa Ana Mountains. Do it two or three times back to back if you're looking for mileage!

3 miles and a 2k ft climb. This trail will definitely kick your butt, if you aren't used to a steep incline and switchbacks. There is no shading, so it will definitely get hot. I wouldn't recommend it for the summer, unless you leave really early. The views are amazing on a clear day!
