nice trail. good views. poor parking.

Great spot in the city to get away from the city and get your workout in... do it a couple times; once counter-clockwise and once clockwise...

Quite a nice hike. You'll be in a mostly residential area. At about the midway point it opens up into this beautiful view of the Covina plains. That part is very well done and even has a table for you to sit at. The last part of the hike you will be going down a steep decline, and some sticks may be in the way. I parked at the school but it was packed because of a soccer game on Saturday. This neighborhood is very rich and it was a nice walk. If you're looking for a nice casual hike this is good choice.

Great road for cycling or running.

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

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.

on Poop Out Trail

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

good workout in the city, gets crowded though and too much dog poop

Great hike. We left a car at Bailey Canyon Park and started at the base of the Mount Wilson trail. The connector trail is tougher than I expected and is not shaded for the most part. However once you get to the ridge it’s pretty much all downhill to Bailey Canyon unless you want to detour up to the top of Jones Peak, which we opted not to do today because it was getting hot. Lots of wildflowers still in bloom even this late in the summer.

Mostly uphill, and not a loop. Actually an out and back. Took me about two hours to do because I took my pup, he’s a little out of shape, so we stopped a few times so he could catch a breather. Most of the hike is uphill and was plenty cool because of the wind. For parking, go ahead and park in the residential neighborhood. There’s signs that say you’ll be ticketed but like I said, we were there for a little over two hours and nothing.

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!

Perfect hike for family’s, we sometimes drive up and walk for early morning exercise, or ride our bikes as a fun summer activity. Perfect for kids of all ages

Park at Hoover Elementary: Alta and Broadway. All over street parking is permit only.

Good hike, lots of fun! Saw a few deer.

First time here at Steep Canyon Trail and it was definitely a fun one! Took about an hour to finish and it's less than 2 miles long, just some steep hills you have to look out for since there's a lot of loose gravel around.. but that's what makes it challenging. Also found a cut in-half 50s chevy business coupe convertible near the near of the trail. Pretty random how it got there. I would definitely come back to this trail if I ever need to kick my ass with the cardio!!

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

Good starter trial..

Was very pleasant. But if you push it you can get a real burn

I loved it!!! Took my 3 month old German shepherd and tired him out too!!! Definitely one of my favorite trails, make sure to bring water and comfy shoes(I accidentally grabbed my workout shoes-not hiking shoes!!) overall, it was an intense workout, but great for beginners!

A quick little weekday warm up for the trials that are up and coming for me, if you loop it twice it’s a decent work out!

Very steep. Great workout. You’re able to go down a less steep way once you get to the top.

Great trail for beginners. Lots of shade.

I love this hike! My daughter and I did this every other day in the morning. Wear plenty of sunscreen bring enough water and take in all the beauty around.

Awesome fun! Recommended!

My first time at Turnbull Canyon was intense!! I super enjoyed the inclineSSSS. There were many of them. I really loved that there were different ways to go, though it’s easy to get lost. My girlfriend and I came down a different route, ended up at a parking lot we didn’t enter through, and walked about 3/4 mike to get back to her car.

If you’re not parking at the little parking lot (near Orange and Greenleaf), you can park by the elementary school near Alta and Broadway and walk to Beverly, which takes you to the trailhead. Not a bad walk.

All in all, I enjoyed the run, sweated a lot, and would recommend to anyone for walking and hiking as well.

This hike has no shade so make sure u are well covered, sunscreen, and water. I’m a beginner so the steep was a work out for me. Lots of up and down. There are 3 route you can choose from. One of the trail leads to Diamond Bar community center. I liked it! It’s a good work out, but pick hiking time wisely.

was a good hike. went early morning loved listening to the birds. very peaceful.

Great hike next door to me! I dig it just not when it’s 80° or higher! Main reason I always bring my dog and this hike in heat is no way enjoyable to her! It’s great to and gets the blood pumping just bring a hat and some H20! Stay safe my friends!
