Serene landscape. I hiked cross country and then to the trail so I did not see the closed sign at the entrance: the trail was unfortunately closed due to a recent fire. A ranger stopped me half way and send me back. The landscape is fascinating offering now a partially burnt forest with rich new vegetation and flowers starting to build a new forest. The ranger informed me that is was closed for 2 years due to a fire but will maybe reopen later this year (status June 2017).
Ranger's office closed at 4 or 4:30 pm- so better to arrive early to get a permit.

This leg is a great addition to Hanna Flats trail out and back.

Some of the views at the top are awesome. The top runs along a ridge. You see Baldwin Lake and the desert on one side and Mt San Gorgonio on the other. The views of San Gorgonio are some of the best on any trail. You won't see big bear lake clearly. The trees and forest are above average for the area. Negatives: its in the woods so there alot of the time you're peaking through trees to see the view. No views until halfway up trail. Trail is rockier than some other more popular trails.

Good hike with some good views at the top.
