Well maintained trail. It definitely falls under moderate.

Pretty hike! The directions take you all the way to parking and the entrance gate. You will pass two tunnels and shortly after reach a dead end. Kind of creepy! Easy hike!

Pretty trail, well marked plenty of shade. But, uphill all the way. Seems like the rating should be moderate to hard. Not crowded only saw a few other hikers. If you want a workout than this is a good trail.

nice hike with portable restroom in parking lot

I definitely got lost. From the parking, make sure you go south and you will see a gate. I started up the trail next to the parking that said Islip Saddle and that was the wrong hike!

Super easy. Mostly a fireroad hike.

Easy. Nice. But easy to get lost too. We somehow turned it into a 15 miler....in the dark.

Started this hike first thing in the morning with my two dogs. Had the trial to myself the whole way up. Nice elevation gains and a few switchback. There is a bench that marks the halfway point.

Convenient trail for people who don’t wanna drive to the boonies to hike and a good workout. The trail have distance markers which makes it an excellent place for timed training

Amazing Hiking Trail !

get way together back in shape

It’s a good Hike it’s not for beginners or older dogs. Bring plenty of water.

Yesterday was a beautiful day on this mountain! We parked in one of the turnoffs; there was only 1 other car when we started around 11:30am. Then, we started on the fire road (through the closed yellow gate) and followed the sign for Little Jimmy Campground to get on the trail. Fairly easy most of the way. The last .8 miles was the hardest part but very doable. I loved the views! We could see LA and Catalina Island through the clouds. The rock building at the top used to be a fire lookout station. Our final mileage was 6.6. Took us 3.5 hours out and back.

I recently moved back to California and needed to re-introduced myself to elevation hiking. This was my first hike in 7 years! The hike was amazing! The beginning and the end of the hike was a lot of elevation gain. There were many people on the trail but still worth the hike. The view from the top was amazing. On one side of the mountain one can see the LA basin and on the other side, the high desert. The only downside of this hike was using the outhouse at Little Jimmy Campground. The camp must have been full during the weekend because the outhouse was RIPE.

This place has marked my first trail I found and used using AllTrails. It has so much history around it and the memories I made hiking around this area will stick with me forever. Me and a friend came here at such a perfect moment where it was chilly but not too unbearable to climb around the beautiful scenery. If you plan on coming here when it's cold, would highly recommend what I did and bring a thermo of hot tea or coco. <3

Awesome hike. Really great for beginners who want to challenge themselves, and/or good for seasonal hikers who want a semi moderate hike to get back into shape for the winter season. Moderate incline at the beginning and end of the hike. Took me about two hours with one rest break at the top of the mountain. Mostly shades until you get towards the top.

Saw a creepy circle with a star in it looked like made with salt as you entered the first tunnel. Found a cool picnic spot with lots of shade on the left. There is what looks like a trail going somewhere off when u follow it there’s lots of trees and shade. See my recordings for exact trail for that. Basic fire road trail not much exploration or adventure in comparison to bridge to nowhere.
*bridge to nowhere go-ers* kinda cool to look at the hike from so high. Wish there would have been a secret connecting trail but there wasn’t.

Fun hike >> https://hikingguy.com/hiking-trails/best-la-hikes/marshall-canyon-trail/

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

Trail well kept but it is pretty step. It is about a 500 foot elevation gain per mile. Great views of the desert and San Antonio peak when you reach the camp ground.

Blue ridge is a favorite of mine. We did it in the moonlight last month, good times!

love this trail

Easy hike, up and down, asphalt, lots of shade

It’s a good trail! You have to pay for parking and starting OCTOBER 1,2018 the price of parking will go up to $5 and on Saturday and Sunday will be $7 in the morning! Soooo I most likely won’t be here. That’s a bit ridiculous. Other than that it $3 and $5 on weekends! It’s not many rocks which I like and tells you how far you have gone! Enjoy

Parking lot and trail close at 7 in September
