I love y’all on here but I’d just like to say that Willet was much doper before Pan lived out there. I’m not being judgemental because he’s homeless and has schizophrenia. A friend of mine had some of their food go missing while they were in the hot spring and he exposed himself near some children in the early afternoon. It just felt more magical and untouched before he was there. Not hating, just being honest. I wouldn’t give him food, I’d call the cops.

HikingGreat!

Got a permit for overnight starting June 6th. Would love to bring my dog, hoping someone else is also going those two days and would want to babysit each other’s dogs for the 2-3 hours it takes to get from Trail Crest to the peak and back, the section dogs aren’t allowed. We also have two extra slots on our permit if someone wants to join with their pooch. Devin_Loy11@yahoo.com

HikingFeeGreat!

We agree with the suggestion of starting at the trailhead and hiking clockwise. The most challenging part of the hike, with lots of up and down, a bit of climbing and navigating rocks up and down —and the most beautiful—will be the first half to two thirds of the hike. Follow the white spray painted dots. The trail will level out to a mostly flat gravel path towards the end. There is not a lot of shade, so cover up and bring a couple water bottles and snacks. One of us used a hiking pole for some stability and support and that was greatly appreciated. We thought the most stunning part of the trail was at the beginning while the trail followed lake. So from the trailhead, you could hike 30-40 minutes clockwise and turn around before the trail loses sight of the lake.

HikingGreat!

We arrived around 7:30 and had to park about a mile down the road...I would arrive earlier than we did. I recommend hiking poles or finding a good stick if you don’t want to just walk in the water. We were able to cross the river multiple times without getting our feet very wet.

HikingGreat!No shade

Moderate rated as it is, gradual incline all the way to the top, decline down as it’s a out and back trail. Easy parking on street by Michael Ln. not crowded at all during a Saturday morning as I started at 8:45am, and was able to make my way down by 12pm, rested at the top of Temescal Peak for a good 30 mins or so. As others stated, AllTrails doesn’t indicate the trail to the peak, so by where the trail ends, the hidden path is on the right, it’ll take you up to the peak, although with overgrown branches sticking out, not too bothersome, just be mindful of the pokes

Pretty challenging ( for a couple in their mid sixties ) up and down scrambling for the first couple miles, but well worth it to see the unique rock formations. Our recording showed over 800ft of vertical when we finished, but we did a couple of the side loops. Last 3 mile is pretty level and exposed to the afternoon heat.

Very fun trail. It is well marked and there is a lot of variety to trek across. The views were unbeatable, whether it was the lake or the rock formations.

It was a nice hike. Basically walking rocky roads. Part of the preserve was smoother. No trees or shade until you reach the falls.

Lovely, perfect day! Parking was super packed by 6:30am. Plenty of space between hikers generally on trail. Slippery, loose rocks no matter which direction you decide to go. Some snow still but manageable. Microspikes/coils would be helpful but you can go slow and have poles to support just fine too. I LOVED Devil's Backbone, walking along the ridge with views.

Hiking

Started at Icehouse Canyon at 7am on Saturday 4/10. Parking lot was FULL when I arrived at 6:45am, had to park down the road a bit. As the parking lot hinted at, there were a ton of people on the trail. Trail conditions were great all the way to the saddle- no snow. Left the saddle for Cucamonga peak at 10am. This is where it gets dicey. Basically anytime you’re on the north side of the mountain, count on walking through snow, and lots of it. I wore my micro spikes and I’m glad I did. The snow was waist deep in some places. As you get closer to the summit, the trail is much less defined. I followed a group of people straight up the mountain face for the last 300-400 feet. It was not fun. It was super steep and the snow was relentless. Make sure you’re prepared and take plenty of breaks. Once the snow traversing was done I was met with perfect summit conditions. No wind, blue skies and warm temps. Lots of people of top, but plenty of space to spread out. Main thing to note is come prepared for the snowy conditions. It’s melting, but that actually makes it more difficult to navigate. Take your time and enjoy!

I would suggest doing this hike early in the morning. I got there at 6:15 and was able to get a parking spot, but 15 mins later I would’ve had to park down the road. The water was still a little too cold, however I saw some people jump in. I SAW NO SNAKES, people kept asking me on my way out if I had seen any.

Fun trail with alot of switchbacks. Chaney trail is closed from 8pm to 6am. I got there a few minutes before 6am along with 4 other cars. Waited for the sheriff to open the gate.

Hiked 4/10/21. Went clockwise up to Ski Hut then down Devil’s Backbone. Started at 5 am and back by noon with 2 food breaks. Minimal snow and not needing crampons. Suggest going up Ski Hut. It’s steeper climbing up but easier on knees coming down on Devil’s Backbone.

Awesome trail! Tons of care in the parking lot, starting out at 745 I only met a few people on the way up, but quite a few more coming down. Almost everyone left their masks at home. I definitely gave up trying to find shallow crossings where I wouldn’t get wet. But once embraced the creek walking is actually a nice part of the hike, especially once it gets hot.
