One of my favorite big bear hikes. Done it in the summer, spring, fall and winter. Always great. Not super easy, but not very hard.
Great view at the top.

We took a wrong turn and turned it into an 8.2 miler...but still I think 6.8 is short. I think it’s more like 7.5.
Great hike. Very easy until the last mile which is a very steep uphill climb on a fire road. Beautiful view from the top.
For me, even though it’s longer, it seemed easier than the Gray’s Peak trail.

It’s a beautiful walk

Nice gradual ascent in the pines.Beautiful autumn colors.

My first time going there. made it all the way to the top. Worth the walk, great view.

Beautiful and relatively easy hike! Safe to hike by yourself, but I still tried to walk with a couple on the trail since there was a lot of bear poop along the trail! Didn’t see any bears or mountain lions, but only spectacular Mountain View’s. Super fun hike and well worth it! I did the trip in about 3 hours round trip. I took my time at the top and even explore the inside of the mine. Highly recommend.

Great hike with nice views at Grand View Point. A nice way to ease myself back into hiking!

Nice hike most of the way until the end where it becomes a very steep fire road. When you get to the top it is a very pretty view but not much room as if it covered with radio towers. Not quite the peaceful peak we had imagined. But there are some small trees so we hung the hammock and made the best of it watching a beautiful sunset.

Nice trail. Started at Serrano camp ground. There is a tunnel under the road to the trail head. Nice view over valley after first couple miles. last turn to peak steep rocky access road. view from top worth the climb.

Super cool! Mine was closed when we got there, but the entire view was amazing.

Such a cool piece of history.

Pleasantly surprised to see fall colored trees. Beautiful views. Started around 3pm so got caught up in the dark on the way back which made the hike even more fun. Not strenuous at all and Grand View was peaceful and grand. Highly recommended if your looking for a short beautiful hike.

2nd time up this trail. Started at 5:30am and finished within 6hr:17min... the hike is easier than Iron mtn but intense nonetheless. A good workout with amazing views of the sunrise over the 3Ts. Great training for C2C. Took 7l of water but only drank 4.5l. Highly recommended- but not for the leisurely stroll

It’s a bit difficult for new players and you need good hiking shoes. The trail has clear signs showing right direction. The view is beautiful and different during the trail. It took like 4 hours to out and back.

great hike

This is a strong hike, including the lower loop option in my track. The eastern leg of the loop (Pine Knot Trail) has no double track, while "my" western leg of the loop is about 50% good double track. The things that make the "western leg" of the loop strong are the following: the single track portions are really great and the trail making very imaginative for both hikers and bikers. The best lake views were from the "western leg" of the loop. Also note that the Alltrails suggested track as of this date does not go all the way to Grandview Point. The view at the point is one of the best views of the Santa Ana River Valley that I know of.

The mines are what makes this trail worth it

This was a rather easy hike, but was very beautiful! It took me about an hour and a half there and back but I spent a while at the mine. I didn’t go inside but sat there and enjoyed the view. I also took my 40lb bully and he was fine the whole way. Didn’t seem tired at any point through the hike. They do charge for parking so make sure to buy a pass. I made the mistake of not buying a pass and received a ticket, however the fee was only what the pass would’ve cost ($5).

A nice and easy nature walk fit for all ages. You may be greeted by people who maintain the trail and they are ready and willing to give you a small tour or supply you with a fun fact. Before entering, you can pick up a guide that explains the significance of the trail markers which makes it a fun and educational activity for the whole family.

Also, make sure to bring your Adventure Pass to park here.

This is not a hike. More like a walk. Going to the cross and flag is all incline but it’s a paved road so it’s not difficult. The rank of EASY is correct. Great for pets and kids of all ages. I love going for walks or hikes where the end result is something amazing. This has 3...the large cross, flag and view. PARKING: Best place to park is at the Ryan Bonamino park.
BEST TIME TO GO: Early morning as there is no shade and it gets very crowded by afternoon.
ADDITIONAL INFO: The trail to the right side of the mountain is harder than the left. Also there is a tower with a bridge that you can go on.

Great trail with beautiful views. Wish people would pick up their trash though. There are many trash receptacles on the trail so please put your empty bottles, etc in them.

Brutal and gorgeous. Read the other reviews, you don't want to do this if you havent done San Gorgonio, San Jacinto etc. I met one other person on the trail who returned because of high winds on the Big Horn Ridge. By the time I made it that far the wind had calmed down somewhat and I plowed on. I made a detour to West Baldy - quite nice and completely deserted. I took it really slowly and had several breaks for snacks and some sketching, Took me ten hours in total.

Great paved trail family friendly! Felt safe the whole time!!

Fresh air. So peaceful

Excellent 360 view from the top. It heats up quick so best to do this hike in the AM.

It is hard and time consuming go early and bring a good amount of food and water pace yourself you will do some serious climbing here. Also prepare for high wind possibly on the summit

Great little trail. The rocks stacked along the trail were great because it does get a little tricky in some places.

Great!!!!
