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

off road driving

A nice drive, with an emphasis on “drive”.

If you’re looking for a nice drive with okay scenery then look no further. On the contrary, if you’re hoping to off-road, there are offshoots (one of which is Holy Jim). Other than that, this is definitely an easy to moderate trail.

Parking for this trail is on Foothill Parkway, not in the neighborhood. This was a great hike. I did it in the evening starting at 5:30 PM. Total hike to Beeks Place and back was a brisk 3 hours for me - I am pretty fast and ran part of the way down. I watched the sunset on the hike down and enjoyed the city lights from Corona. I highly recommend an evening hike - there was a lot of shade on the way up and hiking after sunset was not an issue - lots of ambient light and there were other hikers and MTBs too. I had a great view of the crescent moon with Jupiter trailing in the western sky with a lovely view of Mars to the south. When I got to Bleeks Place, the gate was closed (easy to go around) with a sign that said "Closed to all uses" with the Trabuco Canyon Ranger Stations phone number.

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

This is a fire trail that is maintained & a good conditioning hike but for a good workout take the short cuts. Unfortunately the recent fire has closed the trail for a while.

Awesome trail. Gorgeous views.

Easy to find trails difficult to find which trail is what. We were trying to find tin mine (this is before I found this app) and we followed the main trail to the Doppler thinking it was tin mine. We went 5 miles up until some lady’s that stopped us told us that it is 5 miles back down the direction we came and two miles out. As we walked down with them they told us about all trail app which is SOO nice. I just wish they had more signs.

Pretty good hike. Not too busy for a 4th of July

I love this hike, it can be hard or easy, depends how much you can take.

Rope trail with my cousin, Amanda, is THE best!!!

This is a great campground to have smack dab in the middle of nowhere. It was a great experience and there is a ton of adventure to be had.

An easy trail to the Doppler station. ~5.4 miles from the beginning of Skyline Trail at Foothill Blvd to the station. Easy due to wide truck path all the way through and just follow the path, no way to get "lost." Mountain bikers go through here as well. Took 2 hours 10 minutes walking up at a normal pace, hung around the top for 15 minutes and less than 2 hours back down the mountain side. Nice views of Corona 3-4 miles in, and when on the mountain top, views of Blackstar Canyon into Orange County.

kicked my butt it was well worth it.

Beautiful trail once you get out of the residential area. No shade but breeze was nice. Took our shepherd with us which was nice. I recommend this for anyone wanting a good day out.

I really liked this trail. However, we learned a lesson that might be helpful to other hikers. Since this was our first time we did what other hikers recommended and went down the trail to the creek. It’s the trail before the Cleveland national forest sign if you’re coming from Harding Truck Road. Problem is, when we got down to the dry creek we turned left and headed down stream instead of turning right. We got to a straight drop where it looks like a damn for water control was built. We climbed down to the bottom where there was a lot of shade and a creek. We started walking that path and came across a large sign that said “KEEP OUT” spray painted on a wood board. We thought this was a way to trick people away so we kept going anyway. We came to someone’s house who lives in the middle of nowhere at the end of the creek. It was kind of creepy. Don’t know who they were or if they were someone dangerous so we headed back. That’s when we figured out the right way to go.

Breathtaking views all around most of the way. The spot where the waterfalls would be was completely dry again though on the May 12th weekend.

Took about 3.5 hours to get up there with okay pace and some quick photo stops. 2.15 return. (So, definitely longer than 4 hr round trip as some people have commented)

my kids love this hike

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.

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.

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

I liked this trail. It was a decent elevation shift but smooth trail. there are longer routes and you can connect with the falls trail to extend your hike distance.

Just hiked this trai, with a 20 lb pack. l. FIRST - The directions are wrong. The easiest way to say it is go to the golf course and park, or park out on the road before golf course and walk the 1/2 mile. Then, walk behind parking lot ad see the trail down below, across railroad tracks, that's your trailhead.

It's 2 miles mostly winding UP to the intersection of Brush Canyon Trail (to the right) and Scully Ridge to the left...stay left. maybe a 2 1/2 mile stretch on the ridge, up and down rolling hills before the trail hooks around and heads into the canyon on, Lower Alisio. You stay on this, another 2.5'ish miles when if you're not careful, you will miss the right turn UP to Brush Canyon Trail, which is a few windy switchbacks, back UP to Scully Ridge and the trail back to the golf course.

If I didn't have the pack it's good for trail running, although the straight ups most likely to be hiked....

Went this morning with my daughter and 2 grandchildren ages 3 & 5. Beautiful scenery, will definitely go again!

Fun trail. Definitely a hike to do if you live close by and want to get fit. Great views of the IE and I like how it connects to Blackstar Canyon when you get far enough back.

Hiked and have rode my horse up this. Cool views of the IE but PLEASE stop graffitiing the pumpkin and leaving your trash there. Glass can Injure the animals
