Even on a 75° day it felt very warm. Nice views from the top, but took some work to get there. 5.50

easy to moderate hike. started at the horse camp and followed the gps. great view at the peak of the lake. narrow path on the way down which exits at the museum parking lot then walked along the recreation road back to our vehicle. nice little 5 mile hike. alot of paths that can take you in many different directions. we paid 10 bucks to park inside the recreation area but it looks like you may be able to park along the neighborhood along Iris ave and hike your way in to avoid paying for parking. will try next time

I started at the horse camp area. The area is desert brush with no visible trail to follow. I just headed up the ridge. once I reached the top, I could see a very wide visible trail heading down toward iris, but my car was inside the park. I headed down a trail toward the lake which was impossible to follow, so I just followed an empty stream bed to the bottom. I wouldn't advise hiking from the lake side.

Fairly steep for the first mile or so, great leg workout. Saw a few lizards and snakes along the way. Dogs loved it. Pretty view from the top.

I would say it's Moderate level at least , not easy. Worth the climb though !

Nice vigorous climb to the top on a fairly straightforward trail. Beautiful day to see all of the highest southern California peaks at once. Magnificent view.

May the 4th be with you! This trail gets a little rigorous fairly quickly. A bit more than 3/4 of the way up it sets back to a more leisurely pace. Also at this point is when most of the sounds of the college neighborhood below fade away. A good workout and the view of the lake from the top is worth the hike up!

Moderate trail, all uphill on the way there. the view at the top is great. Came across several hikers on this trail, all were friendly.

I followed the trail from the map and the trail was easy to find. It was steep and I forgot my poles, so the climb was difficult in areas since my balance is precarious at best. I crossed paths with 4 or 5 groups of people and all were friendly. There is a steep section that required me to make several breaks. I am trying to get in shape, so this portion was daunting but not impossible.

Started this trail today at the Indian Museum trailhead. It was a poor trail and markers ended about a mile up the slope. Next time I'll definitely try the trailhead at the campfire site and hopefully make it to the peak. Still very enjoyable. The weather was great for picture taking and rock hopping/exploring.

I took this trail a few days ago, and just followed the directions from the All Trails map. up Lasselle to Iris to Grande Vista Drive. My round trip was under 4 miles and a little less than 1000 foot climb. I didnt have to pay for parking, as Grande Vista Drive dead-ended and there is parking on the street. TONS of people hanging out in the area, but I was the only one on my trail besides 3 young boys toward the end on my way back down.
No trailhead signs, i just parked at the dead end, and started on what looked like the most obvious trail. The first half mile or so sort of wanders, but then the incline really kicks in more. Nice 360 degree view at the top,if only there was less fog and smog :( Pretty good hike for the area

Terri Peak Trail in total is about 6 miles with approx. a 2500 ft elevation gain, it is awesome. There are two starting points, a trailhead by the campfire center, or at the indian museum. To the peak and back is about 3 miles, over the peak and back to the trailhead is about six miles. Signs posted stated no dogs. Entrance fee was $10.00 but well worth it. We parked at the campfire center trailhead, continued up to the peak, and back down to the indian museum and then down to the lakeshore for a walk along the beach and then walked back to the trailhead, we took in the sights and some breaks and explored the indian museum so it ended up taking around 3-4 hours. Plus you really have to watch where the trail goes, it is clear but only to the experienced hiker it could be easy to get lost, but if you take note that you are always aligning yourself with the lakeshore and indian museum ahead you will be just fine. A beautiful hike and a great workout!
