Great moderate hike thats located close to me. Many different trails to wander off on from this main one, but all of them lead back to each other. Fun to explore knowing I wont get lost. I utilize it year round, but my favorite time to go is in the spring. The hills look like they straight out of the Sound of Music.

Nice long trail. There are spots to stop and sit along the way. Several tracks connect. However, it's mainly dry and desert like now.

This trail is a nice scenic hike that I would definitely recommend, however I'm sad to say the pictures don't represent the trail at all. All of the green grass is gone, you're basically hiking on a dirt trail. But still a nice hike!

I hiked this trail on a Friday afternoon starting at about 3. I started at the trailhead at the top of Rimcrest Drive (I don't know what the previous reviewer is referring to about the trailhead not being there any more) and followed the ridge trail out to San Juan Hill. The hills this time of year we wonderfully green thanks to all the rain we've had. The ridge trail is a nice "rollercoaster" providing some good chances to get the heart rate elevated. It is also exposed to the sun the entire way which should be taken into consideration when doing this hike in the warmer months. After reaching the summit of San Juan Hill, I rested for a bit before heading a little farther southeast to catch the canyon trail back to the trailhead. The canyon trail was very different from the ridge trail. It follows a stream the entire way and is surrounded by trees on both sides. When I got back to my car my Garmin watch showed the distance as 8.32 miles. Overall this was a pleasant hike with great views of Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties on the way out and a pleasant walk through a shaded canyon for the return trip.

There is no trail to access here. It is all developed residential area.
