We live in Bakersfield to the North about an hour, and this is our go to trail. It is well worth a longer drive. Look for warnings about if the Adventure Pass is in effect. They sell one day ones and the Ranger Station in the Nordic Base parking lot. Great snowshoeing in the winter as well.

Love this trail, it's so calm and usually pretty green. In the beginning of the year it usually keeps a bit of snow on the mountain sides. Great hike for beginners and dog friendly. My husband and I needed a little more of a challenge so we just kept walking to the next mountain top. So if you're looking for more, there's definietlyplenty of room for that

The Mc Gill Trail is a wonderful hiking trail except on the weekends. On the weekends there are a lot of mountain bike downhillers so you have to jump really quick to the side of the trail. It's really a lot of fun for them so I cannot blame them.

There are plenty of quieter trails on weekends like the one from Cerro Noroeste toward Pinos Summit via Sawmill Mountain
