The Angeles National Forest (ANF) is located in the San Gabriel Mountains and Sierra Pelona Mountains, and mostly housed within Los Angeles County in Southern California. The forest offers developed campgrounds, waterfall hikes, picnic areas, and ample opportunities for backpacking, swimming, fishing, skiing and hiking in the solitude of an expansive wilderness area. Trails are shared amongst hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers and off-highway vehicle enthusiasts. An Adventure Pass is needed to access many parts of this recreation area including parking at many hiking trail's trailheads.

Pretty good. Secret chest behind the waterfall if you wanted to know...! Great gameplay 9.5/10-rotten tomatoes.

Great loot. Tried multiple times to defeat the boss. Hardest boss I’ve ever fought against. Used all my shield positions.

Great checkpoints. good boss. but that collectible was hard to find. 10/10 good game. -IGN

Nice simple trail, good sites. Can get quite busy.

Amazing and very challenging. Worth all the struggle.

NO BUGS IN JANUARY
Do to a temporary road closure from the recent rain and rock slides, we had to improvise and start at the top, then loop down and end back at the top. My girlfriend and I just completed this loop on an overnighter while backpacking. We camped at Spruce Grove camp. Amazing hike and beautiful views the whole way. Definitely bring trekking poles for this type of elevation gain. If you don’t have poles you can rent them at adventure 16 for $7 the first day and $2 every additional day. Also I read so many reviews about how terrible the bugs are on this hike. Let me say that we had no problems with bugs at all as we hiked the loop earlier this month (January).
Cheers!

Went to hike Colby Trail but hiked this trail instead. Although it says moderate it was rather easy, no steep inclines but little rocky and narrow in some place. Even our little pug enjoyed the hike. Good thing most of the bikers have a bell on their bike otherwise you may not see them until it’s to late. Found a awesome tire swing and a cool little cave. Would definitely do this hike again.

Lovely trail! I would do this again and recommended it! Beautiful views throughout the loop. Some icy patches of snow on the trail today, 01/21/18, but not enough to necessitate micro spikes—just trekking poles. The section from Mt. Waterman to the main trail is not well marked, so check your All Trails map at this point especially so you don’t get lost. Check the forecast and layer up as needed.

fun hike, good and easy for kids with 22 easy water crossing.

Pretty easy hike with a few off-shoot trails to choose from if you wanted to. Not too much of an incline, but a good, long walk. We did the full loop and a small off-shoot loop for the swing area (had a picnic lunch here too) and did around 7 1/4 miles from start to finish. Highly recommended, beautiful views. There were a couple areas that look like they may have been washed out from the rain we had a few days earlier, so I’d avoid taking small children or pets in those areas. They only had about a 12-15” wide walkway in those areas, although they were very small lengths to travel.

Beautiful views easy hike, moderate for kids

I didn't go to Devil's Peak, but I went to Mooney. The section to Mooney is overgrown, but if you're feeling adventurous, you can make it to the summit. The effort isn't really worth it though unless you're looking to scratch it off your peak list.

This was a great hike! There was hardly any trash but unfortunately there is some graffiti. There is a pretty big incline so depending on your fitness level this could take a little while. My group made it to the creek crossing in an hour and from there we headed up the river to do some exploring. We didn't see the falls as we were afraid of being cited. We saw a camera or sensor up there that may be used to enforce the rule? Parking is $20 so we were just dropped off to avoid this cost. Overall a great hike that was fun and short! I really hope they open up access to the falls soon!!

My husband and I recently moved to Claremont and were very surprised (and glad) that we would have parking access to this trail as residents. Note, for non residents you have to pay a parking fee. The parking fee is more expensive on the weekends than it is on the weekdays.

When we first went to this trail for the first two times, we ended up only doing 1 mile and 1.5 miles (and back) respectively. This was my husband's first time hiking, and I haven't gone hiking in a while and so we decided to take it easy. The third consecutive visit however, we finally completed the full trail! As many have mentioned, there are two routes to the main trail. Clockwise would be the Burbank Trail and counter-clockwise would be the Cobal Canyon Trail. On all occasions we went counter-clockwise, through the Cobal Canyon Trail.

The first two miles are probably going to be the most difficult with plenty of elevation gain. For beginners or inexperienced hikers, the elevation gain may come a little too fast in a short distance, so be prepared! The whole trail has plenty of sun, so I suggest bringing a cap or some sunglasses if you're sensitive. You are rewarded with a beautiful view at the peak - several of them, actually, and about 2.5 miles in, you can see a beautiful zigzag trail ahead. I think as soon as you reach halfway, regardless of which trail you choose, the second half of the hike should be much easier to complete because you'll now be descending back to the bottom of the trail.

The whole hike took us 2 hours to finish at a relaxed pace. About two miles in, there are several forks off of the main road that you can explore further, such as Potato Mountain. These will be great options to explore on our next visit to the trail. You will see plenty of babies on their parents' backs, strollers, and fur friends - the trail is very family and pet friendly, much like the city it is located in!

This was my first experience with Baden-Powell. What a BEAUTIFUL hike!! It was 19-ish degrees at the bottom, and with windchill, was about 5 degrees at the top. We had to put on our micro-spikes at about mile 2.5; we couldn’t have finished without them. It was snowing a bit on the way up, with strong winds approaching the summit. It was very icy at the top! We were the only people on the summit, which was amazing! No view due to the winds. I can only imagine the views on a clear day. I can’t wait to do Baden-Powell again.

the first three miles on the trail are a bit steep but it's definitely worth it!

Sometimes a little crowded but a good jaunt

Good cardio but too crowded sometimes

Came to check out Spruce Grove Camp for for a future overnight trip. Great, moderate hike that is easy to navigate & has Mother Nature's beauty all around. There was good amount of water in the stream multiple waterfalls & water crossings. Camp is awesome, about 5-6 sites, fire pits, picnic tables & tools (buckets, rake, shovel) just wish people would have more respect for Mother Nature and the outdoors with the graffiti. Oh there is a fork on this trail which allows you to decide upper/lower, took the right fork in and came out the other side to check it out, they seemed to be pretty equal, just a difference in views!
