Kicked my ass

Very nice easy trail. Restrooms at the interpretive center. Mostly paved except the dirt side trails.

I had a difficult time finding the entrance to this ‘trail’ tucked in behind a marina. This trail is a paved blacktop road suitable for biking walking or running. The scenery is beautiful, but there is not much shade. Safe place to run, with beautiful views and no traffic.

Nice trail. Lots of bugs though. Annoying.

I thought I was gonna die! Lol! I am just starting to hike again and this might have been a bit ambitious of me! We were heading to Ontario Peak, but I only make it to Icehouse Saddle. 4.2 miles and 2500 ft elevation gain. This trail kicked my butt! The fall colors were putting on a show and the trail is beautiful, paralleling a stream part of the way. I wish my spaghetti legs had allowed me to head down to if for a photo op, but I was afraid that I wouldn't make it back up to the trail! I will do this hike again, and I will make it to the peak next time!

We take our young kids here all the time. It’s a fun, easy hike with so many cool birds to identify. Beautiful, peaceful, and nice HB locals. No bikes allowed.

First hike in twenty years and loved it. Went on Friday around 9:30am. Not crowded, only crossed about 20-25 others during the entire hike. There is quite a bit of rock, gravel and step-ups that make the hike a challenge. A few elevation runs get your heart rate going but there is plenty of room to rest if needed. The scenery is beautiful and peaceful. Legs were burning about half way down with all of the rocks.

Me and my boyfriend run here ever morning and we love it, it’s so peaceful and beautiful! Love love love!!!!

I don’t care for hiking on rocks .. trail is better after the saddle.

Beautiful in the fall. Great trek for a 5 year old as well.

Love this hike! So beautiful with running water throughout the hike :-) Bring hiking poles!

Beautiful, amazing hike. Wish I had brought lunch and extra water bottles.

Did it today, was tough but awesome

Did this hike yesterday was my first time did the big loop trail 6 miles. Just as we were leaving the fog rolled in and covered the entire valley so awesome to experience with the kids. Will definitely go back there with the mountain bike.

My go to for getting away from all the crazies in the city

if you hike frequently, this hike won't take you a full day. I can go from the Icehouse trailhead to Icehouse saddle In under 2 hours. I've done the Icehouse trail and Chapman loop in 4 and a half hours. great hike though!

Besides the noise it’s a fun adventure.

Easy walk. You’ll see some horses as you walk.

I have walk this trial several times , but last times I have noticed less and less water and more house construction. So much destruction around the area. machines extracting water too. Very sad .

Amazing easy trail with great views!

Great hike! I loved the views. The creek running by portions of the trail is beautiful and refreshing. It was wonderful to see so many out enjoying nature!

es super para caminar 4 millas ahoy yeee

We saw three ospreys very beautiful! We went early around 7:00am

Easy, scenic trail. Saw rabbits, countless birds, lizards and a baby rattle snake! Down side, you get hints of car noise from the PCH and not secluded.

A very nice trail for a warmer day, as most of the trail is in the shade and much of it is parallel to a stream.

Enjoyed the birding photo opportunity.

nice hike with easy parking. a lot of runners so this might be a good spot if you like to jog/run

My favorite hike to frequent as a local from Claremont. Not sure if I would rate this trail as difficult. Moderate for sure. Only moderately difficult part IMO are the switchbacks nearing the saddle. Nice mix of shade and sun and makes for a lovely hike as it parallels the creek. Lots of Columbine wild flowers, manzanitas and pines.

Great Hike! Note that the actual mileage as shown on the map is 8.9 miles

Well maintained trails that were pretty easy. This is a nice place for being in the middle of the city. There is no shade but the views are great. Not a great place if trying to get away due to location, traffic noise and airport noise but it was a great place to go to get out of the hotel room without fighting traffic.
