Great hike, more on the moderate side instead of hard.

HikingGreat!

Reading everyone’s reviews and thinking the steeps part of 1.5 mile to the peak got me sweating a little. When I finally got to do this peak in person and the steep part is not a joke. Oh boy. What great legs work out. Loved it.

Nice hike, definitely wear pants, there’s places where the trail gets skinny and your legs brush up against some foliage. There was more shade than I expected, which was nice. Plenty of open space at the top to have lunch. Nice views and no bugs. Happy trails.

Always nice to get diversity from the Mt Baldy and Santa Monica Mountain areas in our hikes and this trail certainly provided it!!! We hiked it on Saturday, 17 April. Be aware the parking lot at the Red Box Picnic Area (Rt 2 and Mt Wilson Road) fills up EARLY. Parking on the street appears permitted, but that fills up fast too. We arrived at 10AM and was fortunate to get a spot from someone leaving. Be aware a parking pass is required. You can purchase one in the visitor center or risk getting a $5 ticket. The trailhead is across the street. Be careful crossing. The cars and motorcycles fly down the road. My Garmin measured 7.9 miles, ~1800 ft elevation gain and 3hr 30 min moving time. We spent a lot longer taking pictures. The 1.5 mile scramble to the peak is as described in other reviews. It is relatively steep and slippery in places. The trail makes you work for your hero shot with the peak sign at the top. Although the peak itself is small, there is an adjacent area that is large and also provides nice views. The cotton ball clouds Saturday were incredible. Fortunately, we didn't see any snakes, but keep your eyes open when on the single-track. My girlfriend suggests long pants to protect your legs from vicious yucca plants, sturdy shoes, gloves for the rock scramble, sunscreen, hat, plenty of water, snacks, a handsome boyfriend (sorry I let her down on that one!!!) and a good attitude for the ascent!!! Packing a fresh strawberry and a red outfit for the summit photo shoot would be the topper!!! Oh, a cooler of ice cold beverages at the trailhead makes for the perfect end to the day!!! Enjoy!!!

A good little hike. Moderate towards hard. The 1.5-mile scramble before the peak is a good workout.

This trail is definitely difficult. Challenging after mile 2. 3 false peaks. Make sure to wear the right shoes, tons of water and snacks. The views are stunning! It’s worth it...enjoy!

Fun hike, scramble towards the peak. Peak gets crowded as there are couple hikes leading to the same peak. Views are pretty. Fun for trail running!

Last 1.5 miles to the peak are brutal. Took me 2 1/2 hours to complete this hike, out and back. Amazing views when you reach the top.

Lots of flies and small bugs throughout the whole trail. I saw ticks, flies, bees, etc. No greenery due to the bobcat fire, forest is still healing. Did a noon hike on a Sunday and it wasn’t crowded at all. Weather was pretty warm, no shade on trail. The trail is very sandy and makes the pathway slippery, I would recommend shoes with good traction and trekking poles to help you get up and down. Even with both these things, my boyfriend and I still slipped down a few times on our butt lol. Last mile and a half to the peak was the worst, coming up was difficult and coming down was even harder. If it wasn’t so sandy and no loose rocks were around, it would have been a pretty fun trail.

Daaaaaaawg, this spot is WILDN! First off, real G’s do the Loop. If you go up Colby canyon - hit strawberry peak - then down red box canyon, you can just take the road back for a mile to your car at Colby, it pops you out right near Mt. Wilson. It’s wayyyy more enjoyable but you gotta have the guts to walk the road back with these foos rippin hellcats through the mountains like they got whips lol. Second off, those scrambles are CRAZY! I was eating boomers and ripping this live resin so I was really thrown off guard by how intense those were (and I uplove to Boulder). If you have any climbing experience you’ll be fine but it does get dicey in a couple spots, especially by the peak. Whooo!! best to find that route and not just climb up the fkr cause she’s a biiiig girl. Don’t. Look. Down. Like dawg, I love climbing mountains and today I was kinda tripping being out there by myself. Also, them thorns ain’t noooo joke. Prepare to sacrifice some blood to the trail gods lmao Funny story, I was cruising up to the peak screaming “let’s fking gooooo!! While bangin motion sickness by phoebe bridgers off my phone like some hipster... lol, as I got to the tippy top of the mountain, I turn the corner and there’s these three kids looking at me like baby owls eatin’ Doritos. I was cracking up. Anyyywayyyyys, moral of the story is... hang tight!!

Tough one closer to the peak. Not many hikers out today which was great. A lot of sand and lose rocks. Great trail!

Got there about 7AM. Plenty of parking available at that time. Very little tree cover and only inside the first mile so being a hat with you. The first 2.4 miles are a steady incline but not bad at all. Once you hit that 2.4-2.5 mile mark the fin starts.. A few false peaks but overall not too crazy.

Nice hike, more moderate than difficult. Very exposed. It wraps around the mountains with mild elevation gain then the last mile is the steepest with some high stepping over rocks. There are false peaks but it's definitely the higher one, & keep your eyes peeled for rare trail markers or you could go down a wrong path (for the most part, keep left). Some paths are not very well defined but try to keep on path or you could erode the sides. Not too much litter but I did see some water bottle labels, disposable masks, & toilet paper closer to the peak as well as inside the cache box at the peak (so gross, pack out your trash people! toilet paper in ideal situations, which most trails aren't, takes a month to a couple years & most wet wipes contain plastic so those decompose slower, up to a hundred years). Saw a rattlesnake so be careful! Hike responsibly & safely!
