We just did this yesterday from Modjeska Canyon, parked at the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary and hiked all the way up to Santiago Peak. It was 28.6 miles round-trip and took us nearly 13 hours! Really just did this as climbing Santiago Peak was on my bucket list, don’t need to ever do it again! Take a lot of water and snacks. We took headlamps too as we started in the dark and the last 2 hours we had to finish in the dark, which I would not recommend, poor judgement on our part and was awful! If you’re parking in Modjeska you may need to display in your car a Cleveland national forest pass which we already had. The views were cool, but this is not really a “pretty” hike. I would also suggest ibuprofen, 28.6 miles is a hell of a long hike, my hips started to ache after a while and the ibuprofen helped! Sunscreen too is an obvious thing to pack. Wear layers too, can be pretty cold in the parts with no sun exposure, and early morning and evening. We did this in November, temperature was perfect 75* was the high, would not suggest this in the summer months.

Great 2ish hour hike! Incline is a bit steep otw up but the views are definitely pretty! No shade so wear a hat!

Well maintained dirt road, easy to park and find trail head, wide trail and when you get to the last 1/3 where the rock trail begins the terraine gets more challemging but we saw a 4 yr old doing it so really not hard at all. Great trail day!

was looking forward to the trial but it was closed today 11/01/18

Steep hill but worth the view! Beautiful coming down. You can see a lot of nature and animals (deer).

I did this one again. Only did A free miles. Took my dog (older). So I cut it short. Will do the full hike next visit.

First few miles are flat and kind of boring the last 1.5 is where the fun starts. Took my dog. Just a few spots she needed to be lifted to help her up or down. Not sure I would take a dog I couldn’t carry but I did see a few people with bigger dogs so they must have found a way around the bigger rocks. Fun trail even though the water wasn’t flowing.

Great ride on Sunday afternoon when hikers are done.

Hike this trail up to the Blackstar canyons sign and then walked back to parking lot. This is a very dusty walk your shoes will come back brown. best to do it after a rain fall when it’s not as dusty. It’s mostly a dirt road so it’s not that hard until you get to where the falls are and then you have to do some off hiking and climbing over boulders. All uphill hiking , bring good shoes you don’t mind getting dirty and lots of water. You’ll see peacocks on your way up there and cross 2 bridges. 24hr trail. In summer watch out for snakes on dirt road.

Closed on the weekdays for construction

Great view.

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.

Nice trails, beautiful views.

The trail is nice, Maintained with a fantastic view.

Had a great time. Amazing ocean views.

Great workout and trail. It gets pretty tough.

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

Hiked this trail down to shoreline, over to the Beachcomber and back. 10.5 Miles. Beautiful views.

They don’t call it dreaded hill for nothing.

Nice walk

Nice trails. Great views.

Great place for a morning hike.

Amazing views

No water at the falls but still a great hike, definitely a work out though once you get to the rocks. I've been here before when there is water and it is amazing, will be coming back but probably after some rain.

It was amazing view! We loved this trail and will come back for the ocean view for sure! We hiked 6.2 miles for 2 hours!! Early morning is recommended as there is not much shade or canopy.

I remember this hike from earlier this year. I'd say it's more of a hike than a running trail..
