Jackson Lake is beautiful! We didn’t do the full loop shown but did parts of the Jackson Lake Trail and the Boy Scout Trail. Both are beautiful and well maintained. Only complaint is there are a lot of little annoying bugs mostly on the Boy Scout trail. I’m not usually bothered by bugs at all, but this was a bit much. Other than that, beautiful with patches of sun and shade.

Completed 6/2/20 this trail was amazing the smell of pines throughout the entire hike was refreshing! So much wildlife and beautiful flowers! Ended up seeing a doe and bluejay at the waterfall. Speaking of the waterfall, i've been to a couple in Angeles Forest, but never have I seen so much water! It can be tricky getting down to the waterfall you have to get down using a rope and sorta slippery, just use caution. Definitely worth taking a dip in the water :). On the way back up is going through a couple of campsites and walking along the highway for a bit. All and all a fantastic loop hike!

Beautiful Alpine lake, a lot of fun. A bit on the buggy side , but that’s to be expected. The only Natural lake in the San Gabriels.

Great hike . I went today , which is a Tuesday. The parking was great and so where the trails , they weren’t packed. Loved when I got to the path to actually get to the waterfall. There are ropes that you need to get down the steep terrain and then get back up. I enjoyed my hike today and can’t wait to go back.

Loved this trail! Beautiful the whole way! Got slightly confused once it met up with PCT, but just continue a bit father on Burkhart Trail. I had to park above the gates of the campground, which added 2 extra miles total. (Had I reviewed earlier I would have done the Cooper Canyon Trail loop). Trail kicked my butt a bit on the way back because it’s all uphill...but I’m a bit out of shape and the extra 2 miles I sure felt! Regardless my dog and I very much enjoyed it and will hike again!!

this was a beautiful hike! I mostly enjoyed my time on PCT trail, road, not so much. big trucks and tractors sometimes and not always much room to let them by. also, I wouldn't rate this easy, I would say moderate. my fit bit said 5.1 miles. lots of elevation gain on the way up and I found it difficult to breathe due to elevation and it being my first official hike here. I will definitely go again!

The only hike were I actually bring more than 2 people as its a super populated hike and no chance of getting solitude. I disagree with the jackass below. The people who come in Tennis shoes need to be called out as these are the same people who get lost and put others lives at risk. Beginning of trail has a little memorial for a SAR member who lost his life in December trying to rescue one of these jackasses. Be prepared and enjoy the hike

Hiked this May 31. Arrived at 7:30am and the Manker lot was already packed so we drove up to the lifts and the lot was empty. The recommended loop is Manker to Ski Hut up, Backbone to Notch down but we took the route opposite and didn’t run into the crowds until the Summit. Glad we did it backwards to avoid the groups along the way, although Notch-Backbone up is more strenuous. It was cold and windy up top, still some patches of snow, but hot all along the exposed trail up and down, so layer appropriately. And don’t forget your spf!

Still one of my favorite trails the switchbacks make that trail. Vincent Gap parking lot is open and so is the restroom. Still snow on the trail the closer you get to the top but doable just a little tricky to get around over it.

Go early because it gets so crowded that it won't even feel like you're outdoor anymore. We left the falls when a lot of people show up, got back to the car by 10:30am. I think if we have hiked any later, it would have been a terrible experience. Pretty easy trail with a lot of inexperienced hiker so be ready to wait for every single water crossing...

Completed 5/30. Did the loop counter clockwise, highly recommend that route. Counterclockwise is a shorter summit but STEEP. Arrived at 6 am and the parking was at capacity. Heard some hikers commenting that they noticed “to many people in tennis shoes, it’s not worth dealing with them”. The trails and parks are for everyone, leave that pretentious attitude at home. Anyways it was bad at all once you started making your way up. We even had the devils backbone to ourselves. Btw, there’s nothing sketchy about it. Especially when there’s no snow. Closer to the summit got cold and WINDY. Bring appropriate layers. BRING POLES! After knocking off some much longer hikes I made the mistake of thinking I didn’t need me. That was dumb. Don’t be me. Bring poles, go counter clockwise and enjoy. Happy trekking!

We recorded 6.5 miles out/back for this trail. The trail itself is one of my favorites even with the few extremely narrow spots that are a little sketchy. Be prepared for a water crossing at the beginning.

Nice decent sized waterfall. A super short hike that’s very kid friendly. Took my 3 year old niece, she was able to do it with no problems. Go early during the week to avoid other people.

The trail head starts between mile markers 58.00 and 58.02 on Angeles Crest Highway. Your can take the fire road all the way, but why would you? This early elevation is much more fun! There is so much to see see at the top: stunning views, rocks to scramble, and even a disc golf course. Wonderful day!
