Hard hike but worth the desert heat. once you get to the water fall, its heaven. The suckiest part is the incline one the way OUT.

Fun trail, but roads are narrow and can scratch the truck, mostly 2wd only needed, hard to see other traffic going up and down

Great Hike, Great App.

There are two trails. Both go through the biggest gate from the parking lot then take your first right after a quarter mile where the sign says "trail". After the descent into the canyon there is a T bone intersection. Left is overgrown and will create a 3 mile loop that meets up with the fire road. Right is a 5 mile out and back to some point and better groomed. Poison oak is abundant.

I personally prefer just driving Lyons valley road than this trail but glad to experience it.

For easiest day just do the fire road.

Hard hike but not like everyone says it is.

we hiked all the way to the water fall. I would recommend getting hiking boots. there is a lot of lose rocks and lose sand. sneakers would make it slippery. it's a work out for both upper and lower body. Definitely good scenery. Bring loads of water.

We did this hike on a mid October morning and it was pretty underwhelming. The trail is fairly overgrown with brush so if you don’t like grasses/brush on your legs as you walk be sure to wear long pants. The view from the top was pretty cool but the hike up was nothing to write home about. There are definitely more interesting hikes in the area than this one.

Great hike on the PCT to Eagle Rock (ER). GPS recorded 7.01 RT miles and 1,196 ft. elevation gains! The first couple of miles on the trail had abundance of poison oak before trekking on the open range Mesa! The Santa Ana winds were prevalent at ER! The views leading up to ER and on ER were breathtaking!
