    nice trail but beware, if you're on the trail and miss the white arrow spray painted on a rock, you"re going to miss the falls. also it is a steep drop to where the falls are. you may have to do some but sliding but it is gorgeous. great falls in to a pool. follow all trails, once it shows you are there. time to go down the hill on your backside to a great area.
    have fun!

    I hiked on 9/22/18. started at parking lot at 0645, made it to the summit at 1215( yeah, I'll never break any speed records) at my age just finishing is a big deal.
    Trail is beautiful, mostly in shade through forest, just gorgeous. last few miles to the summit are a bit rough. but of the 4 six pack of peaks that I have done this year. the is easily the most beautiful.
    if you go on the weekends, the Cosmic Cafe is open at the summit. Had a killer hot dog, coke and cookie all for 10 bucks. a life saver. got back down to car at 515. so a full day hiking. Fyi, all trails has it as 11 miles, the signage on the trail show it round trip at 14. both my pedometers showed it 18. So go figure. Anyway a great day and an awesome hike. places to camp along the way also.

    the only reason for 4 stars is signage is not great coming down the the bowl . other than that, it's a kick ass challenge for anyone especially an old man at 62 like me. Did it yesterday, and unlike a lot of people that leave reviews on how fast they can do a trail, I took my time and did it in 12 hours. went up through the skilift trail, then all the was to summit, the down through the bowl. Great hike, part of the six pack challenge, not sure at my age I'd do it again but 3 down and 3 to go. Special thanks to Lisa, who was an angel and gave me extra water from her supply.
    if you think the world is short of great people these days, go on a hike , you'll meet plenty. it will restore your faith in mankind. Go Clemson, hope you see this!

    Trail open all the way to the Doppler radar, despite the fire damage all along and right up to the sides of the trail.
    still one of my favorites.
    Enjoy!

    great hike, will make you work for it, but I think the finish line has much better views than Cucamonga peak, but that's just my opinion.
    I can't figure out though it says its 12 miles but I used 3 different pedometers, 2 apps on my phone and 1 on my belt and 2 came up at 17 miles round trip from the ice house parking lot and 1 came in at 16 miles.
    Anyone have any thoughts?
    Anyway, a fun hike.

    signage was pretty good, this is a tough one. seems to be just a relentless climb and remember, you are starting the trail at 6000 feet so air gets pretty thin as you near the top.
    For an old guy like me (62) it was rough and I took alot of short breaks, but finished, which is all that matters.
    Great forest to walk through, very peaceful.

    a great hike, if you're looking for a workout, this is the hike for you. some is hard surface, some is shale some are loose gravel, so the section between the saddle and the peak is downright dangerous due to loose gravel ,but it's an awesome.
