beautiful, so far one on my favorite list

it's still closed

Super easy. Mostly a fireroad hike.

This hike is pretty easy compared to its rating. I did it at night, while recovering from a cold. Going uphill sick wasn’t a joy, but the views are worth it! Most of the trail is well maintained with little rock issues. Once you get to the last half a mile it becomes lose, but still walkable. If you are looking to work on your cardio or sweat out a cold, this is a good hike. I didn’t see “shortcuts,” but from the map, they look similar to the path. The part that would make this rated hard would be the uphill motion, but it’s not difficult. It just pumps your heart. This is good practice for anyone looking to strengthen their heart.

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.

Very easy trail with a little waterfall at the end. I recommend if you want more of a workout to park at the bottom of the parking lots and walk up the roads :)

nice walk

Easy and peaceful. Lots of birds and a surprising amount of lovely wildflowers being so late in the year. Easy to get to and short enough in case you don’t have lots of time.

well maintained trail with amenities along the hike fire road stroller family friendly dog on leash. Moderate elevation gain great workout.
Plenty parking $7 wknds $5 wkdays on location kiosk. Lots Panoramic Vistas of IE. Plenty of sitting benches along trail. Enjoyed the trail

Love the scenery! Difficult but worth it.

Still has running water down falls but stream trickles out fast through out hike. Falls r fairly busy. Lots of places to hang out at falls area. Perfect for your lil ones did it wait my 4 year old he loved it

First time going there. It was really a good experience. I really want to go back and probably take a different route this time. You can admire the beauty of nature and maybe the experience to see a bear!

EN LO PERSONAL NO LO VEO TAN DIFICIL ... PERO SI LES PUEDO DECIR QUE YA SEA CAMINANDO, SENDERISMO CON MOCHILA DE 40 LIBRAS, CORRIENDO O EN BICICLETA ESAS 2 MILLAS TE HARAN SENTIR QUE VALEN LA PENA

I absolutely love this 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

This is a nice short urban trail. I started near yellow gates, that read "Not An Entrance".
Pros

- Well lined trail
- Limited # of people
- Nice views
- Good workout regardless of fitness level.
Cons
- Dirty
- Heat
- Dusty
- Short length
I highly recommend this trail for anyone. Bring enough water, hat, cooling towel, and a potato. Do not leave your potato :).
It can be steep in certain parts if you're not used to trails. Also, do not go during peak heat times if you are not accustomed to the temperature.
Enjoy!

best part about this trail is the free parking! Clairmont P.D let me know to put away any valuables in my trunk to help avoid any thefts. so far so good.

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

EXCELENTE AREA MUY CONECTADO CON LA NATURALEZA Y ACTIVIDADES AL AIRE LIBRE CORRER CAMINAR BICICLETA Y SENDERISMO

A bit charred still from the fires, and the water level is low, but still a pretty hike and nice loop, away from the hustle and bustle...but not too far so it’s easy to access!

Easy-hike. Near by.

Nice-easy hike.
