Great view!

used to he a great trail where I popped my off-roading cherry in high school. perfect since it was in Orange County, but now its paved and there's warnings about leaving the trail. unless you're hiking, this trail is just about dead.

Well maintained dirt road, easy to park and find trail head, wide trail and when you get to the last 1/3 where the rock trail begins the terraine gets more challemging but we saw a 4 yr old doing it so really not hard at all. Great trail day!

Started my hike first thing in the morning with my two dogs. The parking lot at the trailhead was empty, by the time I returned it was full (make sure you have your wilderness adventure pass). There are gradual elevation gains and switchbacks. Great views, especially at several benches along the trail (that's where you'll have the best photo opportunities). At the top end of the trail is the PCT or continue on to Bertha Peak.

was looking forward to the trial but it was closed today 11/01/18

Only made it up the hill, had to turn around. Far too many dog feces on the trail. Disgusting.

I did this one again. Only did A free miles. Took my dog (older). So I cut it short. Will do the full hike next visit.

Lots of long fire roads and single tracks. Plenty of choices and nice views also right in the middle of town.

First few miles are flat and kind of boring the last 1.5 is where the fun starts. Took my dog. Just a few spots she needed to be lifted to help her up or down. Not sure I would take a dog I couldn’t carry but I did see a few people with bigger dogs so they must have found a way around the bigger rocks. Fun trail even though the water wasn’t flowing.

what a view all the way up of the lake. definitly can't wait to do it again .

Hike this trail up to the Blackstar canyons sign and then walked back to parking lot. This is a very dusty walk your shoes will come back brown. best to do it after a rain fall when it’s not as dusty. It’s mostly a dirt road so it’s not that hard until you get to where the falls are and then you have to do some off hiking and climbing over boulders. All uphill hiking , bring good shoes you don’t mind getting dirty and lots of water. You’ll see peacocks on your way up there and cross 2 bridges. 24hr trail. In summer watch out for snakes on dirt road.

Closed on the weekdays for construction

Great place to find some little gems such as the tree with the insanely big roots! Recommend sneakers for the actual hiking trails.

Love this hike when there is running water to walk in and two beautiful waterfalls (one you can climb up to the top of in to a little cave) it rained yesterday. Does anyone know if it was enough rain for a waterfall?

I believe moderate/difficult/intense is a good level describing this trail. Only reason why i’d go pretty high is because the second half is where you’re going up the river bed. and that means your climbing up boulders. No doubt you’re gonna get dirty when it’s raining. Today was raining after a quick thunderstorm the night before, but there wasn’t any running water. Kind of anti-climatic, but i’d like to go back when there’s running water. the way back is a lot easier, and if you’d like, you’ll be sliding down rocks and jumping from 4-5 feet. good boots or similar would be needed because of all the gravel and river bed rocks. The sad thing is that many boulders and rocks are tagged and some are inappropriate.

they recently paved the trail and the end is a fire hazard so the gate is closed. they also added signs stating that you are not allowed to go off course so basically you are forced to drive on the pavement. used to be my favorite trail but now it is just a normal road with a speed limit of 25

I’ve done this trail many times and up to the Indian Village. Amazing views!

Great workout and trail. It gets pretty tough.

If you catch someone doing graffiti on rocks please let them know they're not welcome.

This was a great and rewarding hike! The views were beautiful!

Good little walk around some local trails. after walking the trails, I went and walked around Baloboa park

Great trail. Easy enough to take kids and dogs. Some great views of the lake. Not a lot of parking though.

No water at the falls but still a great hike, definitely a work out though once you get to the rocks. I've been here before when there is water and it is amazing, will be coming back but probably after some rain.

I remember this hike from earlier this year. I'd say it's more of a hike than a running trail..

I'm new to the off-roading world, and we came here around 6pm on a Saturday... It looked like a great place for a little drive, but the gates were closed and said it was closed due to "fire hazard"

One of my favorites!
