very nice. depending when you go it can get a little crowded.

It was a good work out went with a cousin it’s marked hard but don’t think it is. Over all great views,people,dogs, and bikers. Next time will take a potato with art work and leave it on top like the ones I saw by the way went during the fires witch was the obstacle the heat and air.

Beautiful views

It wasn't a good idea to go mid-morning this past Sunday. . .caliente! Reason being, I was waiting on someone. I make it a point to start as early as possible esp. in these excruciatingly hot summer months! It's not difficult for me. Although it's been deemed hard? I like it. The view from top is spectacular.

It was an alright hike. Physically, it had its challenging moments, but nothing not unmanageable.

Because of its location and the high foot traffic, it felt less like an adventure and more like an orchestrated attraction...a la Disneyland.

Though I have to say, there were some very nice vistas

Beautiful trail. Kids and dogs friendly.

park in the dirt lot off Fullerton Rd...its free. I love how challenging this loop is but be cautious. Someone's car got broken into in the lot and on the trail around a bend was a huge rattlesnake! I saw 3 deer on my last hike here. Use the alltrails app. I got lost the first 2 times.

Challenging, but worth it!

For Hikers, google "Marshall Canyon Staging Area" and start from there. Alltrails' map starts off at an elementary school that's so far from the actual trail for hikers.

Looking back at the map now, it would be best to go east on Stephens Ranch Road from the staging area. We ended up going south and then hiked north. It's all down hill and little shade.

Once we arrived at the 3.5 marker (according to Alltrails' map), we went the in a counter clock wise route. This is more difficult than going in a clock wise fashion as the east side of the trail is much steeper than the west/north side. I'll know now to check out the elevation map for better planning in the future.

The east side has little to no shade. The west/north has plenty of shade.

All the creeks were on vacation, we saw zero bodies of water on this hike during this time of the year, July 29. Was hoping to find a nice shaded hike with streams of water during the heat.

Saw a few bunnies, lizards, ants and snake skins on the trail.

Started at 3pm and got back at 7pm. Got real dark at 8-820pm in the area. Gates close at sunset or 8pm.

Looking forward to coming back here in Spring time.

I have entered the trail in La Verne—around the trail’s 3.5 mile market—and have gone both directions—towards the trailhead in Claremont and the other way up the mountain. It is easy in the Claremont side, but gets progressively more challenging the other way. Around mile marker 5, the trail starts getting steep and progressively steeper. Not easy for sure. I’d say intermediate is more accurate. Also around there is shade no more! Good workout, but be prepared and know what you are getting into!!

My hips hurt after. Not a great idea for smaller pups

First time here, and I thought it was a great workout trail. Good for mid-week hike. My hiking poles came in use.

The parking lot is no longer available. There are No Parking and Fire Lane signs. We had to park on the side of the road.

We arrived at 6:30 and finished in 3 hours. About 45 minutes was just taking in the views and taking pictures. This is a great hike to take a beginner on since most of it is on a fire road but you still get the amazing views and a bit of rocky terrain. If you’re going early morning or after sundown, I suggest taking bug spray and a bandana. The gnats are horrible on the trail!

Overall, the hike was ok, but the views made up for it.

I wouldn't say this is difficult, moderate I'd say. Start early as there's not much shade. Great trail to bring your dog to!

Tried this trail for the first time and really liked it. I read other reviews that suggested to go left. That was a good call! The left has little to no shade and a greater incline. You'll appreciate the shade on the last leg of your run/hike. There is a fee to park $3 weekdays /$5 weekend and I saw staff checking car windows to see if they paid it not.

As of July 2018, there are permanent-looking signs saying the trail is temporarily closed. :-(

Relatively easy trail. The most difficult part of the trail is the entrance side near the 57 fwy but the difficulty is only for a short while. Most of the hike was easy. There are several creek crossings and beautiful trees for the sun to shine through. Kids could get tired just because of the distance but difficulty level is easy

Went on a solo hike on a Sunday. it was difficult to find the trail, the directions on how to get there, from this app, are not accurate at all. I had to stop and Google it. Use this address: 2100 powder canyon trail. it will take to the trail head and the parking lot which is free and it was not busy or full at all. It is a dirt and gravel road and it is very uneven so if your car is low, you will hit some road underneath your car. The trail itself was fun. there are some spots that have plenty of shade but most of it was very open. there are alot of forks and different ways to go that take you to other trails. I stuck to the map and followed the app and GPS. it started to get kinda confusing towards the end but watch the GPS from the app and you'll be fine. plenty of inclines and it will challenge you!

This trail is a nice and easy hike that's perfect for the family and doggies. There's tons of shade provided by the oaks and alders. Unfortunately, there was some graffiti on parts of the trail, but if you can look past that, you'll still find beauty around you. The elevation gain/loss is barely noticeable since it's only 416 feet. This should make the hike pleasant. The keen hiker will note that there are several species of plants that don't belong in the creek. I found bamboo and Mexican Fan Palms growing near the creek which normally don't grow there. There's also lot's of poison oak growing along the creek bed so great care must be taken when going near the creek. Overall, it was a nice hike and I would do it again.

This is a great place for beginner to intermediate hikers. This is a higher traffic trail, but it still gives you a great taste for the wilderness.

Love this hike! Take my pitbull at least once a month. My favorite time to go is right before sunset. Great views of the valley and IE, on a clear day you can even see the LA skyline! Have seen many deer

Great bike trail not usually to crowded. As always start early gets hot in Mt Baldy. Have seen rattlesnakes and deer on this trail so pay attention. Great views from the peak.

My hike was in mid-July so I got on the trail by 7:00am to beat the heat.
This is a wide well maintained trail good for all types of hiking. Two pay-parking lots (upper and lower) are available just south of the trail head and can accommodate over 300 vehicles for a flat fee of $3.00 for 4 hours. I recommend beginning the trail on your left as you enter the gate from the upper parking lot. The trail will head towards the west for about one mile and then turn north for a mile. At the two-mile point you will have reached the pinnacle of the trail and the best is ahead! As you descend the remaking 2.7 miles, there will be an abundance of shade to enjoy as you finish up.

Parked at Oak Mesa Elementary School off Wheeler Ave. Access to the trail through the park over the wash bride takes you to Los Robles right, to Via De Mansion right, to Orangewood St left, trail head half ways down the block on your left. Find the trail head on Google Maps “Marshall Canyon Biking Trail”

Trail has good shade throughout first 4 miles in then it opened up. Not to technical, some loose trails closer to the the top loop. Carful on Roller Coaster Trail coming down.

My wife and I have done this before and enjoyed it for easy hills, nice shady Oak trees and gentle creek and we found a rope swing over the creek. We will be back but not today it's 112 degrees.

Great workout- very steep hike. My 15 year old son loved it - take your teens on this trail it will most definitely challenge them.
