Overall easy trail with some great views. easy terrain just horrible trail rash, so if you dont want your vehicle to get scratched dont use this trail. Also I tried taking 2N45 to exit to the 138 and had to turn back, I know it turns into a black diamond rd after the fork with the 2N59 but I had to turn back because it was overgrown with brush and tree branches it looks like that part of it is not used anymore. So make sure that you take the 2N59 when you get to the fork. I started at palm st and ended at the 138 just south of the lake.

Do not leave anything in your car. My car was broken into there. Someone busted out my back window. Pretty scary, especially since this is a busy trail and people always coming and going, and your car is parked among so many other cars, with many people around.

Hiked this trail for the first time this morning and it was great. Parking was a little thin by 8:30am on a Sunday but not completely full. Beautiful scenery and plenty of birdwatching to be done throughout this hike, especially near the trailhead. The trail was in good shape most of the way. It became a little more sketchy after the turn toward the summit (away from Claremont Wilderness Park). The sun kept us plenty warm, even in mid-November! Enjoy!

Went night riding in my 98 zj. No fun offshoots. Trail options to finish south of silverwood lake

Park on Foothill Prkwy near trailhead sign. Skyline Drive is a maintenance/fire road, graded and approx 12’ wide. Other trails fork off but the main road continues to the Doppler Radome (and beyond).
Not much incline the first 1/2 mile. Past the residential area the climb begins and continues for the next 3+ miles. Nothing too drastic or difficult, just constant, every step uphill. Near the last mile the trail levels out, then descends a bit, then climbs again to the dome.
I went on a Friday morning so past the residential “dog walk” area trail traffic was very light. Only saw a few other hikers and mtn bikers during the hike.
The canyon side of the trail is open, the other hugs the mountain which provides some shade along the way. Nice views of Chino Valley and Corona (north), Lake Matthews (east) and Cleveland National Forest/OC beyond from the top (south). Took 2hrs 10min on way up, approx 1hr 45min way down. Stay hydrated, pack 2L water minimum + snacks for energy. Be safe and have fun!

Why a 5 rating? It's personal. I need to get in shape for a backpacking trip I plan to do in the near future. This trail serves almost all my needs, save for the 9000 feet elevation, and it's a mile from my house. Switchbacks, Elevation gain, Gorgeous views, it's all here. What is surprising to me is that I might not have discovered it were it not for the Alltrails app. BTW i'm 70 and a half. Old guys rule!

Really awesome hike! Went here after my former partner visited in the spring and felt its magic- I wasn’t disappointed by the beautiful views and majesty of the desert. A little tough on the way up because a good amount is sand or on a moderate grade. Recommend to go if you’re ever in need of a peaceful climb and some healing.

nice hike with portable restroom in parking lot

Dislike. No shade. Lots of graffiti and trash.

Super easy. Mostly a fireroad hike.

This hike is pretty easy compared to its rating. I did it at night, while recovering from a cold. Going uphill sick wasn’t a joy, but the views are worth it! Most of the trail is well maintained with little rock issues. Once you get to the last half a mile it becomes lose, but still walkable. If you are looking to work on your cardio or sweat out a cold, this is a good hike. I didn’t see “shortcuts,” but from the map, they look similar to the path. The part that would make this rated hard would be the uphill motion, but it’s not difficult. It just pumps your heart. This is good practice for anyone looking to strengthen their heart.

Convenient trail for people who don’t wanna drive to the boonies to hike and a good workout. The trail have distance markers which makes it an excellent place for timed training

Started 0715 finished 1200. parking on foothill parkway. it is on a vehicle road. a lot of bikers. gradual inlcline. minimal shade. almost finished my 2.5 L bag. beautiful view on top by the white ball thing.

Amazing Hiking Trail !

get way together back in shape

One of my favorite hikes because of the little pond and trees to climb. The smell of the different types of flowers and plants are beautiful, great place to get away. At the other side of the trail there’s a park and we ended up stumbling upon a Community Healing meetup.

Take plenty of water. Wear boots not running shoes, it’s steep with loose footing. This trail was opened up by the dozer line from this summers fire. Connects to main divide at the top.

Amazing

Definite work out. Pretty steep downhill. The trail coming down is the fire break.

It’s a good Hike it’s not for beginners or older dogs. Bring plenty of water.

Rocky trail; beware of taking children. Absolutely beautiful and fantastic. A must see

Great views. Beautiful day. Great cardio. Steep hills. Saw two snakes (gopher) and a tarantula!!!

Arrived at 0630 on a Saturday and gate was closed. Who's in charge around here?

Love hiking here

Good hike with a payoff stream to chill at at the top. I love the incline which is hard but not so hard for hat footing becomes an issue.
It’s unfortunate that folks go ghetto and have the urge to paint their crap on rocks or play music so loud that others can hear it 100 yards away.
