dogs on leash
Parked on Lincoln right before the road curves to head way uphill, trails on your left in between wooden fence & house with the long driveway. Took my 2 year old, pretty easy hike, bit rocky. Take a trash bag if you're into picking up trash because there's a ton here.
Pretty hike. The single track has lose shale so I would recommend hiking boots or trail runners with aggressive soles. It was quite warm (August 2016) but the fire road at the start provides some shade. Great view at the peak. If you expect to drive on the fire road (past the Y of blue jay and main divide, which is where we parked), four wheel drive is required. I would do again! Enjoy!
Adventure buddy and I went up the backside since Santiago Canyon is closed in his 2000 Tacoma. Found a great spot to watch the meteor shower with a view of Corona. Haven't been up there in awhile. Trail is pretty soft in some spots and seems like it's been awhile since they've done any maintenance. Trail seems pretty washed out but you can still drive pretty much anything up there. Very dry and dusty, more so than usual, but with the drought I guess that's to be expected.

This's is a good trail to get a workout. Going up the initial hill will definitely get you to burn calories because it is very steep. Gravel is loose and slippery.
