Superb peak views.

Excellent hike! Started before the sun came up, easy to find the path. Parking was no problem at 6am on a Sunday but definitely was packed by the time I finished around 12pm. The hike was a good workout, the last 1.5 miles was a butt kicker! Great views of Baldy, which was snow covered! Cold at the top but tolerable. I think this is a moderate hike, I wouldn’t list it as “strenuous”, like Baldy!

Awesome hike. Did the hike on Saturday October 13, 2018. Snow and Whiteout at the top. Be prepared for freezing temperatures.

Love this hike when there is running water to walk in and two beautiful waterfalls (one you can climb up to the top of in to a little cave) it rained yesterday. Does anyone know if it was enough rain for a waterfall?

I believe moderate/difficult/intense is a good level describing this trail. Only reason why i’d go pretty high is because the second half is where you’re going up the river bed. and that means your climbing up boulders. No doubt you’re gonna get dirty when it’s raining. Today was raining after a quick thunderstorm the night before, but there wasn’t any running water. Kind of anti-climatic, but i’d like to go back when there’s running water. the way back is a lot easier, and if you’d like, you’ll be sliding down rocks and jumping from 4-5 feet. good boots or similar would be needed because of all the gravel and river bed rocks. The sad thing is that many boulders and rocks are tagged and some are inappropriate.

Did it twice already awesome, challenging, beautiful and relaxing. Did it at night and day too. Please pick up your trash. Don't cut the switchbacks. Thanks #HikerEvolution #HikeRevolution # HikerEVOLution

Very cool trail that leads you through the old LA Zoo

well maintained trail with amenities along the hike fire road stroller family friendly dog on leash. Moderate elevation gain great workout.
Plenty parking $7 wknds $5 wkdays on location kiosk. Lots Panoramic Vistas of IE. Plenty of sitting benches along trail. Enjoyed the trail

Did this hike yesterday with a friend, our first time doing this. We planned on doing the hike via devil's backbone and down but we took the wrong trail and playfully hiked a few miles and relized we were at the ski hut. probably one of the best mistakes we did during this hike, our knees thanked us when we got back down via backbone. The weather was pleasant with occasional gusts which felt very chilly but the sun being out almost all day helped. Views on the way up and down were spectacular. All in all a difficult hike made easy by the good weather and amazing views.

Difficult but rewarding.

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!

Absolutely fantastic! Challenging is an understatement. Did it alone and never got lost. The view up top was beautiful! Definitely pack warm gear because it was maybe 40 degrees with a 50 mile per hour wind gusts early this morning. Loved it!!!

I take everyone here!!!
It has it all! The drive to the parking lots has spectacular views as well! The hike is dog and family friendly and is @ 3 miles. The trail is an ADVENTURE! Starts on pavement and views of the hills and valley then heads into the woods! Lots of cover and the trail moves along the waterway and crosses it a few times, so be careful with your footing over wet rocks! And the payoff is a gorgeous WATERFALL!!!!!
And now that we're getting some rain, finally, even better!
This hike never gets old!!!
ENJOY!!!

Oct. 2018: Great trail. if you are a beginner beware and give yourself at least 2 hrs. There is a fee of $5-7 Dollars. If you are not out of the parking lot by 6 p.m you will get a parking ticket. If you get locked in the parking lot be prepared to pay a fine. I remember when it was a free trail and you didn't have to worry much about fees, tickets or fines. But it's a great trail. Recently went on a hike and came across a few turantulas, squirrels and baby deer. They are harmless if you keep to yourself and treck on. You will also frequent a lot of older people who ride up and down the mountain like no one's business. They may either make you feel like wuses or inspire you to treck harder...none the less they are always nice and they always say hello. In the end, it's worth it once you complete it. Welp, I'll leave you to it! peace

I’ve done this trail many times and up to the Indian Village. Amazing views!

Awesome 15 miles hike!!!

15 miles! Great hike

Beautiful hike with an amazing view at the end completely worth it the whole way

One of my favorite 'local' hikes. The most difficult portions is the final climb right before the summit and the rest of the decline since I am somewhat clumsy coming down. Views were great except for the summit since it was in a haze with lots of wind.

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

Great workout and trail. It gets pretty tough.

If you catch someone doing graffiti on rocks please let them know they're not welcome.

Great hike! Don’t try this if you have bad knees as the downhill section will be torture. Luckily for me my knees are not completely gone but I definitely was feeling it.

This was a super fun trail with lots of river crossings. We were surprised at how much water was there at the end of summer. My 8 year old was a champ it made it past the bridge to some fun swimming holes. We took about 4-5L of water each and some food and we were good! Took about 3 hours to the bridge. Clocked around 11 miles total. We followed “the hiking guys” step by step trail photos and that was super helpful because it is not well marked.

My third time doing this hike but first time doing the loop counter clockwise which I was told is "easier". I didn't think so. I prefer clockwise because the down portion the way back from the peak is brutal and you don't get that treat of an ice cold craft beer at the lodge.

TIPS: pack lots of water; do the loop counter clockwise so you can spend some time drinking a beer at the lodge at the end; don't forget your Adventure Pass.

Fun hike. no trail markings though, so get ready to create your own trail!

Loved this hike! Its not an easy hike, but doable. We were exhausted from the bare heat exposure on the 4th mile to the bridge. There are some amazing water holes below the bridge, so we were able to cool off. We also brought sandwiches with us to eat lunch there. Bring water and electrylotes to replenish. Thanks to this app, I had a peace of mind that we stayed on track.
