Views of San Antonio,Gorgonio,Jacinto and Santiago Peak, rugged rocky terrain I can't say enough good things about this hike. It is short, but steep. You gain great vistas of the major Southern California Mountains and their respective ranges. You are hiking through nearly waterless desert so there isn't poison oak :-). Even in August, the temperatures cool down enough to hike it just before sunset, or in the cool of the morning, and that is exactly what I do. I take this hike 3-4 nights a week with my dogs. It is a jaunt pretty much straight up the hillside, and the incredible views of the San Gabriels and Bernardinos begin almost immediately. From the top you get clear shots of Jacinto, Gorgonio, and Baldy. Watching the sunset from this spot is exhilarating. Plus, I've never seen another soul out in the evening.

Hiked this trail a couple years ago. It’s a tough hike and a good workout. Nice view of the city on the north and a miserable and difficult hike view on the south. Only hike this trail if you’re looking for a cardio workout. The trail on the other side of this mountain is actually the ones everybody should hike; you will actually enjoy hiking those trail. This trail is not for funs it moderates to strenuous.

Great short hike with great views and minor climbing. Trail is easy to find, not sure why others could not find.
Directions.. park at the cul de sac, follow the trail that leads away from the 2 water towers, follow the dirt road that turns to pavement. on your right you will see a big field of grass, so go left up the trail that leads up the hill.. simple.. Also, after an hour or so of hiking you will end up in a flat plain( with soft sand ) that goes left and straight. follow the trail on the right and go straight and you will reach the top that over looks lake perris and all the surrounding mountains.. Hope this helps.. Good luck and enjoy..

Amazing view of Lake Perris!! This hike is steep incline (2 hour hike total) ..make sure you wear hiking boots or good tread. Take water and be careful of snakes...but we'll worth it:-):-)

Bernasconi is very beautiful and if you look for them you can find Native American art on the rocks. Unfortunately Bernasconi on the lake perris side will be closed soon for the next 3 yrs due to the reconstruction of the dam

Aside from one steep section, it was a quick and easy hike. The views were great all around. From the very top you can see a lake/reservoir. I went on a weekend and I only saw five other people.

A really nice hike, close to home. You can see Lake Perris which is nice, too. I love exploring these hills. The trails are a bit rough, which is kind of nice, more excuse to roam around and explore.
