Beautiful hike, many river crossings and scenic sights. Bring lots of water and keep track of your steps because it’s easy to get lost since there’s almost not a single sign

Did this hike with some friends and my two dogs. A very challenging hike, pushed my limits. The weather was cold and windy at the summit. I'll do this hike again.

I underestimated this hike a bit. It is definitely harder than I thought. But depending on the trail you take it could be easier. Landslides have removed part of the old trail so you have to travel on the dried up river bed which is fine. A lot of shade. Towards the end there was a clearing for sun but it is overall shady. Lots of river crossings. Bring some good boots or waterproof shoes. Some extra socks would be good too. Lots of fun! Very beautiful. Chances to see mountain goats which I saw none. Bungee jumping at the end. Expensive! $120. Wear some good pants. Wasn’t a lot of people there. There are some camp sites there as well. Next to a shooting range too.

Terrific challenge really pushed myself starting at 6:25, made the summit 7:55am
Breathtakingly views!

Fun, but hard! Don’t under estimate. From the peak you can see from the Mojave to the pacific. We could also see Catalina island, and even past Catalina island - to San Clemente island. STUNNING!

The views on the way up and especially at the top are simply outstanding. Overall this is a much easier hike than C2C, but the long steep ascent is total murder on the legs. Quads in particular get hit quite hard. Hiking poles would probably help give the legs a break. Going back down is a little tricky in spots, due to the loose sand and rocks, but nothing careful foot placement (and grabbing on to surrounding brush) can't solve. On a Sunday I saw lots of people of varying fitness levels at the summit, so this is a doable hike as long as you do it at a pace that's right for you. In terms of water, for me 5 liters was perfect.

I love this trail. It is never crowded. The views are most optimal. The switchbacks up Telegraph are gorgeous and the Peak is lovely with a small area between the rocks to grab a bite and look at Mt. Baldy. You can see the green ski hut and just wonder at the Bowl.

This hike should be rated easy. It’s pretty much a strain hike with a little here and there incline. An excellent hike to take a dog. Lots of water through out the whole hike. It’s just long but not hard. However the drive to get there is a different story. It’s about 5 miles through winding rounds that you have to share with a lot of bicyclists. It’s only a two lane road. Which feels like forever when your trying to leave.

I really tried to like this hike, but it just didn’t do it for me. I’ve hiked quite a few trails in the Angeles Forest and this was one of my least favorite. Not much variety in scenery, many water crossings, trail not well marked, and the bridge itself was interesting, but a bit underwhelming. If you’re looking for a longer hike, I found the Zion Loop very enjoyable with lots of shade.

Dope trail dope views dope! there was snow towards the end but didn’t bring micro spikes so it was kind of sketchy.

We started on the trailhead around 9:30 and were back at our car at 3:00pm - best time of day to avoid hiking in the heat! Tons of shade in the morning on the way out, and tons of yuccas, trees, and shrubs filled the canyon. The river crossings (there are many) were a bit dicey on the rocks, so get good boots or walk through the shallow water rather than risk a bad slipping off rocks! Watch your footing, too - there’s a lot of loose gravel and a few narrow stretches of the trail. Bring at least 150oz of water per person, wear jeans and a wide brimmed hat - you’ll be glad you did! It’s amazing to bring lunch or food snacks to enjoy near the pools under the bridge.

THE GOOD: Amazing views, lovely vegetation, mix of shade and sun, and having lunch under the bridge. You really feel the river come alive, seeing it rush with deep pools and twists and bends. Bonus - you might see bighorn sheep!

THE BAD: The trail was much more crowded than it was during my last weekend visit 6 years ago, and the bungee jumping operation has totally taken over the vibe of the bridge area. Go on a weekday you have off to avoid the crowds and bungee jumpers. Also, watch out for the yuccas on the trail! They will get your legs - jeans are recommended.

This was my third time on the trail, and I took two friends who had never been. It’s always an adventure, and the lush growth really gave the terrain an ethereal, almost Jurassic look - a special canyon hike I hope to return to!

Excellent hiking day

Nice trip overall

We did this hike in mid-August along with our friend who was prepping for her trek on the JMT. The hike is well maintained, mostly shaded, and meanders up the mountain with a series of switchbacks. I prefer switchbacks to a straight stair-climb up a slope, so I appreciated the winding nature.
Only annoying part is the peak- little shade and LOTS of fitness group meetups that had music blasting and were having push-up competitions on the summit monument. Oh, and the drone guy. Not everyone wants to hear your whirring drone and be in your videos. Enjoy nature, please, and let the others around you enjoy it too!

Overall: nice and slow pace with lots of shade! No water and only pit toilets so bring plenty to drink.

Great view from the top. This trail was a good challenge!

Great hike! Clearly marked, beautiful views, steady climb and well maintained!

It’s very awesome when you reach the top

Great Hike - I logged 30 miles in 14h35. Started hiking at 4:50 in the dark and finished in the dark at 7:45 pm. You better be in a great shape if you plan on accomplishing this 10 peaks challenge, it is really hard!
Loved the view from Ontario and Cucamonga! Breathtaking. It is getting cold up there so plan to have extra layers. I used 5l during the day. until peak 7 I was above the clouds which were wonderful but completely in clouds when reaching Baldy. I'll definitely go back to do baldy early in the Morning.

Great hike, nice views, not too strenuous and beautiful weather

Strenuous up hill. So many switchbacks I wanted to quit. 4 hours in we made it to the top! Most satisfying hike I’ve ever done though! The view makes it all worth it!

Great hike. Beautiful with different views that are amazing. Trail is not rocky which I love. Some switch backs but not many. The peak is incredible. It can get windy but we got lucky and it was calm. The tower allows you to see forever views.

Really nice hike with a diverse set of landscapes that follows the river, and consists of some light rock scrambling, river crossing, and lovely views. The river crossings are incredibly fun and a great way to keep yourself cool on a hot day. It is possible to prevent your feet from getting wet by walking over rocks, but it can be slippery so I would anticipate getting your shoes wet, even if only slightly. A friend and I decided that it’s a great hike to take visitors from out of town!

This is a trail I wish the made even steeper just to save a mile or two it’s just what seems to be an endless amount of switchbacks

One of the best hikes we’ve done (twice) in LA this summer!
