Depending on your athletic ability, this could be considered more than moderate. We had four kids with us ages 3-10 and they all did it but it was tough in some spots. Steep inclines with difficult footing- hiking shoes recommended! It was an amazing view from the top and the breeze made it worth it. Lots of broken glass which cut our trip short- my little guy slipped and cut his arm on a piece. He’s ok but parents should know it’s not the cleanest peak we’ve been too.

Nice scenic trail. Did it in the early morning on a cloudy day. lots of interesting Rock formations and boulders.

Park in the adjacent neighborhood with ease. Hike is fairly strenuous in the beginning but you're quickly rewarded with fantastic 360 degree views of OC. I only encountered 1 person the whole time, which was nice. On the loop back, the trail takes you on the road, but I cut back in to go back the same way I came in, and was much better to avoid the road. Took around 1.5 hours with a couple of little stops. Cool little hike

Great hike. The left trail is easier for children. Less steep. Make sure to wear good shoes.

Hiked this trail a few times as a conditioning trail in the evenings, nice view from the top. Not to boring but enough to give you a workout.

Hike showcased great views of Anaheim and Irvine. The red soil mixed with the rocks created a beautiful dessert atmosphere.

Excellent place to relax and enjoy after a long day of work. Many wild animals to see at dawn or dusk. Trails go uphill majority of the way with Spectacular Scenery once you reach the top.

Very calm, not packed in the morning, parking is easy to find if you go early. The scenery is amazing .

First time here at Steep Canyon Trail and it was definitely a fun one! Took about an hour to finish and it's less than 2 miles long, just some steep hills you have to look out for since there's a lot of loose gravel around.. but that's what makes it challenging. Also found a cut in-half 50s chevy business coupe convertible near the near of the trail. Pretty random how it got there. I would definitely come back to this trail if I ever need to kick my ass with the cardio!!

Where the hell do you park?!

I love this hike! My daughter and I did this every other day in the morning. Wear plenty of sunscreen bring enough water and take in all the beauty around.

A little more than we bargained for due to the inclines, but it was worth it.

Better for hiking than running, not enough even trail to get a good pace for more than a half mile. Could benefit from a cleared and well marked trail.

This hike has no shade so make sure u are well covered, sunscreen, and water. I’m a beginner so the steep was a work out for me. Lots of up and down. There are 3 route you can choose from. One of the trail leads to Diamond Bar community center. I liked it! It’s a good work out, but pick hiking time wisely.

Intense, but great workout!!

This trail is rated hard and it was. But definitely worth the cardio workout. The last portion is super steep and the dirt is really lose so we weren’t able to complete it. Great views from the top.

A great local trail

Front side of the trail has the best views, back side going down is more secluded then ends going through a neighborhood tract

Really fun with great views !
Nice trails for moderate - advanced people
For sure going back

An amazing hike with a great view. I would not recommend bringing your dogs though. There's a lot of glass around the pumpkin. Also a lot of fire ants.

Short but good cardio workout. Good to do early morning !

Great skill level for kids and adults!! There are multiple trails to get up to the Pumpkin. Only down side is all of the profanity and sexual graffiti. If you decide to bring young kids be prepared to answer questions about some very graphic drawings.

6 year old was able to do this with no issues. Some steep & narrow places.

it is a very good short hike. it does have some steep parts for the most part though it is easy. just a few calf burners. beautiful views, wildlife, and flowers

Lived in the area and this was my go to hike. Explored the connected trails too. Usually don't run into many other hikers, until the rock.

Good for families
