on Country Club Trail

7 days ago

Nice little hike through the woods. My favorite part was looking out into the beautiful meadow about 2/3 of the way.

It was a fun quick hike BUT Scotts Reservoir is empty. I hate to see such a beautiful area like this falling apart. If and when the lake gets filled up I would change my opinion. All in all it is a great day hike for all ages

Beautiful pine country. Recovering from fire damage in some areas, but still a gorgeous view. My Backroad Song!

This was a nice little hike that we took the first part of February on a beautiful day. We didn’t realize that it was primarily a horse trail, which is fine, however the trail was beat up pretty bad and it was extremely muddy which made it difficult to walk and maneuver around the trail, which sometimes took us off the trail little bit to try to avoid the mud. It may be a better hike during the summer months perhaps, but it was still a nice hike.

Trail was well marked, a little rocky at some parts and a little over grown past the ice cave.

Beautiful hike, the leaves are changing makes for great views close to the top end of the trail. It is rocky as you make your way up. On way down took the See Spring trail and enjoyed sitting by the water relaxing. Went on a Saturday and only saw 3 groups of hikers.

It was a nice hike. there's a few connector trails that almost makes you feel lost.

I've gone up to Woods Canyon and Bear Canyon lakes to camp since I was young. Still my favorite place to go camping and I never pass by the view off the rim without stopping to take a look

I'm kind of a beginner mountain biker and I didn't think that this trail was all single track I've ridden it on my horse and maybe we took some connector trails remember some more gravel roads .this was all single track but it wasn't undoable for a beginner I did walk in a few places where there was lots of rocks but I was able to ride over a few it was a really well Marked Trail and I really enjoyed it and I would definitely do it again

nice hike for a stroll. hoping for a few vistas. found a ton of unique mushrooms and the forest sounds were amazing. not fun 4 a 4 year old. ended up coming home early.

Started from reservoir but didn't complete the hike. Trail was torn up by horse riding. Made an easy trail treacherous and uneven(rained two days prior. terrain soggy). Sadly had to turn around after a mile. Also map needs to be updated. Forest service has rerouted a portion of the trail through more rocky terrain from what used to be the trail. Old trail looks to have had a bunch of dead fall from fires in the last couple of years. See "white mountain trails systems" for more up to date info...

Hiked from the top at FR300 and down. Very rocky in places and steep at times. Caught in monsoon storm the last mile or so which was a treat! Soaking wet but well worth it! Hiking poles were very helpful in some spots and was excited to find wild raspberries which were delicious. Beautiful scenery and lush.

Dragged the family and a city dog for the experience which meant our pace was a bit slower than normal....but even with that we banged it out in about 75 mins. Did it in reverse and didn't encounter any major mud/puddle issues until we got to about C4 thru C2. Didn't know about the elevation change...and since we were going from C6 to C5.... it was a bit of an uphill climb for novices. You can avoid by making it a downhill climb doing it in # order as it doesn't appear there is any other dramatically elevation point. Enjoyed the loop...right on my backyard

Kind of a boring hike. crossed the dirt road too many times. Do the Spring Trail, it is close by and much more scenic.

One of the best hikes in the area (next to Mt. Baldy of course). Take the extra time to do the summit. Great views of Mt. Baldy.

Controlled burn - charred land and trees biut still very nice hike and perfect 3 miles. Tall trees and good shade.

Trail is pretty much a narrow rut most of the time. It's very rocky, but pretty flat. Not really anything to look at. Kind of boring.

Hiked 4/16/2017

The trail-head was easy enough to find. Enjoyable hike, there was running water intermittently along the trail, and a few slight patches of snow near the top. Not a great hike for views, there are really none to speak of, but the changes of flora and fauna as you gain elevation is interesting. The trail terminates at a nondescript spot on FR 300.

Great hike. Well-marked, mileage completely accurate. Definitely take the 1-mile roundtrip up to Pat Mullen "mountain" view point. Not a great view, but adds a mile and gets the heart pumping.

Considering we did this the day after it snowed, it was more challenging. the trail was slushy and muddy so it was hard to follow. Very cool to be within the ponderosa though. We are visiting from California and staying at a resort down the road. It was a nice day
