Great and rewarding hike! The shortcut to the summit on the VERY left of the fork is very steep, if you want your legs to be sore for days, then by all means!!

Excellent hike for a workout.

I went for the 2d time. Is not easy but very nice trail with amazing views. It takes more than 3 hours to get to the peak. Not a lot people like long hikes I like challenges and this is one of the challenges to get stronger. My hike was 4/15/18

Great hike. Not too crowded, and easy to park. Flat fire roads at first, but then you get into a nice riverbed with great views. There wasn’t any water when we went, but it would probably be even nicer after some rain. Both my dogs did great- one big, one little. But we turned back right before the end because we heard the last part was hard to get the pups up over the boulders and there wasn’t a waterfall right then anyway. Would recommend.

We absolutely loved this hike. The trail up is beautiful with the landscape changing as ones ascends. We stopped by the Ski Hut and met the gracious hosts, Dave and June. They kindly gave us a tour of the hut and gave some fascinating history. Can you believe they still carry bags of concrete and supplies up there in order to maintain the cabin. I highly recommend a visit to the hut or make a reservation with the Sierra Club to stay a few nights up there. -The summit- The views are amazing with 360 degrees of scenery, lots of picture taking. Still some patches of snow, but none on the trail. The way back down the loop was a little rough with some slippery loose rock, we saw a few falls, but everyone was fine. After the slippery rocks came the Devils Backbone with more amazing views. Then came a long boring road right after the ski lift but it was a nice way to stretch our legs after 2 days of back to back hiking. We enjoyed this hike so much we will definitely do it again. Maybe even camp next time.

Loved this hike, beautiful views, friendly people, and great exercise! I was glad I brought my walking stick as it was quite rocky in places.

We started the hike at 05:30am and the trail got real busy later in the day. Picked up lots of trash on the trail, lots of young adults cutting switchbacks... It was however a beautiful day to be outside. If Crowds aren’t your thing, try going on a weekday.

First time hiking and loved it. Beautiful views.. Rocky but durable. Will do it again. And I’m 63.. Feel so proud

Super cool hike! Apparently it's claimed to be the most haunt trail in Cali. Super beautiful and the end is a blast. For dog hikers, know it might be a bit hard to get your canine up the very last stretch. The hike is super awesome as a whole. Hope it rains soon!

My sister and I did this hike about a year ago.
It’s a super fun hike, but it gets pretty hot. We went right after there was that couple month span of a ton of rain so there was an actual waterfall there and a little pool at the top.

We made the mistake of hiking through poison oak the entire way (and there’s a TON of it so keep your eyes peeled!).

Fun hike.
Very challenging at the end when you’re clambering over rocks and things. Expect to get a full body work out here.
I would recommend going after heavy rain so you can soak your tired feet in a pool of cold water when you get to the top.

Do you like long hot trails to nowhere?? No waterfall, no water...

Last half mile is very hard and challenging with rocks and boulders. There was no water at the fall. There are lots of wizards and birds singing along road. Good 4 hour hiking. I like it very much.

Decent trail with lots of rocks and boulders. It’s definitely a full body workout

LOST a light blue Patagonia nano puff pullover today, Sunday, 4/15/18 just before noon somewhere between the Icehouse saddle and Cucamonga peak. It fell from a pocket in my pack. I assume someone picked it up, as it was nowhere to be found on the way back down the mountain. If found, please text or call (818)522-2140.

Love this place!!!

Great hike, gigantic boulders, tons of poison Oak! No water up top, so we turned around 15 minutes short.

Beautiful views at the end. Huge payoff for the extremely short hike.

I have done this trail a total of 3 times and would highly recommend it. Very easy and the views are stunning. Hiked it in the summer and conditions were perfect. Great day hike!

Did this hike with my kids after school. It was a great little hike for them. Plan on going back soon.

very nice views on the top.

Great hike. We had the summit to ourselves but only for a short time. The views from the summit are breathtaking so give yourself ample time to enjoy it. If you take your dog make sure he/she has dog boots as the rocks can injure their pads.

Great and challenging hike! The weather was perfect when I hiked yesterday. A little windy in some spots, but not bad. The summit was completely empty on a Wednesday too which was a nice surprise! No snow at all. Just make sure to layer because the wind does get chilly.

Beautiful views, moderate to difficult hike during end of March due to hiking in quite a bit of snow. Easy to follow the trail and follow the river and the end view was worth the hike. One way in and one way out!

if you're going to do this Trail be prepared there's a lot of rock climbing without ropes but a lot of boulders but it pretty cool extreme Trail to try

Trail is beautiful but can be rough on the feet. The majority of the path is made up of loose rocks or small boulders so be careful of where you step. There are snow patches on the side of the trail after Icehouse Saddle (halfway point) with steeper ascents. Finally, about 0.2-0.3 miles before the summit, the trail curves to the left, but the actual trail to the summit is around some fallen trees directly ahead. Don't follow the obvious curve to the left as that is a different trail and instead cut around the fallen trees and you'll find a dirt path leading you to the summit.

No snow on the trail left on April 8; just a few patches off to the sides. That last steep mile from the bowl to the summit is brutal. I took a few long breaks to sketch the landscape, different all the time and, was back down by 2 pm.

Hiked to the peak for the second time Sunday, April 8th. Beautiful day. The trail was clear of snow and ice all the way up. Check trail conditions if we get more rain before summer.

love this trail...

Amazing first moderate hiking experience for this older lady. Going up was a little challenging because I don’t exercise enough, but my 11yo son was like a gazelle and having a great time. Regardless it was beautiful and I’m so glad we made it to up to Castle Rock. The views were glorious. Going down was obviously much easier :D. Have fun and bring water.
