It was a beautiful scenery with lots of greenery & water. The hike was moderate I did it with my dog, puppy,& 2kids. Ok now the negative we picked up a TICK but luckily it didn't attach to anyone yet. So before you go out here put on your deterrent & protect your fur babies!!!!

Definitely more of a moderate hike than easy, especially in the heat. It's also uphill the whole way to the small falls. We'll be going back but in the fall/spring.

It was very hot and dry, so carry plenty of water. Trail is well maintained with great views. The last half mile or so was very steep. My GPS recorded 7.2 mile to the top of Bertha Peak.

It has been said that it changed its beauty due to the trash and graffiti. But we still saw how amazing it was getting there. We did a short video of our trip. https://bit.ly/2MSX59I

Nice hike. Pretty much all up hill on the way there. Once you make it to the top, coming down is easy. There was a rattle snake curled up on the side of the trail.
Great views from the peaks of the rocks.

Nice hike. More easy than moderate. Many people seen wearing only very simple shoes. Than it can't be very difficult. Great views but the lake disappointed a little.

A beautiful water fall.

Terrible. The element nowadays are pot smokers playing obnoxious music through cheap portable speakers. A lot of graffiti. Avoid the crowds and go early morning

Fun hike, great views.

Enjoyed this trail, scenery was beautiful

Lots of rocks, would recommend hiking shoes and water shoes for when you get to falls. It’s really nice though, I’m for sure going back.

A nice hike with family. Had fun climbing on the rocks!

Beautiful view once you get to the top!

The walk up can be a little difficult because of the incline and elevation but it’s worth it once you get up there and see the waterfall.

Beautiful day for a hike to the falls. So disheartened to see the graffiti along the way. I support art and expression, but please don't use Mother Nature as your canvas.

Loved this trail and wish it wasn't so far from Los Angeles. Having grown used to riding the San Gabriels, where you pedal up for several miles and are rewarded with amazing descents, this was a welcome, but challenging change. Skyline starts off with a short climb and then winds it's way up and down flowy single track surrounded by amazing views. The trail has something to offer anyone who enjoys xc mountain biking: occasional rock gardens, small drops, burmed twists through forrested trails and switch-backed hillsides. I'm not used to riding at such a high elevation, nor riding over constant rollers, so the trail did leave me a little winded by the end, but definitely looking forward to visiting it again soon!

As a side note: I parked at Aspen Picnic area and rode through town to the trail head at the top of Club View Drive to make it a loop. I imagine it could be done as an out and back if you have that much time and energy.

Great walk, beautiful views with a refreshing stop at the falls. The only problem is people trashing the place and not taking care of the mess they leave behind.

This is a nice little 2 hour hike. There is some plant diversity but I only saw two birds. The stream has a few main waterfalls, about 5-15 feet each, and once you reach the top there is great shade under the trees. There is some graffiti on the rocks and I picked up five or so pieces of trash, but was definitely a fun beginner hike with friends!

Great walk up to a great view over the city! FYI, the water fall isn't much of a water fall. there's also no real place to dip in the water. if you live near here, i recommend it, but it's not worth a long drive.

First time here had a great time. Only went about half way in but I’m really overweight and out of shape and did 5 miles round trip pretty easily. Had a few swimming holes we swam in. Would do it again.

Good for beginners! Really nice place!

Great hike! You do get winded going up so be sure to go slow and take a break. Once at Castle Rock, the views are awesome! We had intentions of hiking to Bluff Lake Reserve as another reviewer recommended but we couldn’t find it. So we explored more around the area and that was fun.
We were able to park right at the trail head, arrived at 8:30 on a Saturday. By the time we headed out, 2hrs later, there were a lot more people on the trail. I suggest you start early.

fun trail not too hard

Has it’s moments where it gets a little steep but overall a good hike.

The parking lot is no longer available. There are No Parking and Fire Lane signs. We had to park on the side of the road.

We arrived at 6:30 and finished in 3 hours. About 45 minutes was just taking in the views and taking pictures. This is a great hike to take a beginner on since most of it is on a fire road but you still get the amazing views and a bit of rocky terrain. If you’re going early morning or after sundown, I suggest taking bug spray and a bandana. The gnats are horrible on the trail!

Overall, the hike was ok, but the views made up for it.

It was my first time going on this trail with my little ones who range from 7 to 11yrs of age. It was a bit hard for them at times but once we got to the creek it was worth it. They got in it and had a blast. We also seen some deer on the way up.

Great first time hike spot. Rocky but worth the hike to the waterfall/stream. Just remember there is a waterfall at the end so keep going. Good for all ages. If everyone picks up one piece of trash we can change the world.
