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...

Great, quick, little work out if you live in the area. No shade at all so wear your sun block! Loved all the cacti patches here and there. Take the strenuous path, kicks butt but feels great for beginners !

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

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.

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!!

Beautiful hike plenty of shade too...

Good starter trial..

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!

Solid hike. Great view of the city. Very little 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.

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.

No where to park!!! Not cool

Very Nice and for a beginner i loved it. I would highly recommend !

Fiancé and I did this hike yesterday. Quick, easy hike. Got it done in 45 with a couple stops of water for the pup. Will definitely do again. Designated parking lot and beautiful hills.

A little hot for dogs, not very much shade. But a nice hike

Biked and hiked here. It is easy, beautiful, and quick.

If you’re looking for an easy & beautiful hike, this is it! Amazing for beginners. This trail is very short, but has enough little hills to give you a good workout.

This was a lot tougher that I had expected!! Great views throughout. Bring lots of water!
