This trail was a great challenge for a speed run. Rapidly going through the riverbed provided a "make your own path" tone. The 2.5 mile dirt road was easy to run.

Beautiful trail by a creek with options for some scrambling and easy climbing with trail-provided ropes. Shade and sun.

Great trail for easy off-roading. Went on a Saturday and did run across a few dirt bikes, hikers and other vehicles so be careful on the blind turns. Great view at the peak, perfect place for a quick trail on a day trip.

Don’t go! The police were out here ticketing all day! I went early in the morning and got there before sunrise. But when I came back the cops were posted up. Got a 1,000$ fine along with my two friends!

The trail is definitely more of an easy trail than moderate. There is not much incline to it. But the scenery is breathtaking.

Pretty equivalent to walking up stairs for an hour. They way down can get a little scetchy but it’s totally worth it.

One of my favorite hikes in San Diego! Beautiful views! All trails is not 100% accurate with the loop as sometimes it says even if you download the map that you’re off the trail and you’re actually not. I started the app 2 miles in...Can’t really tell how far it is either but it is between 11 and 13 miles for this loop. Getting different measurements.

Great trail, wish it went to the top of Sugarloaf. So many bugs when the sun came out.

Great hike :) it was worth it

A day fun day hike with the friends. The reasons I rated this trail at three stars was for multiple reasons. 1. The trail was littered with plastic water bottles, granola bar wrappers, and various other trash. 2. The rocks were spray painted throughout the rocky part of the trail with graffiti. I have never seen a trail with more graffiti and trash on it. 3. There were multiple locations where I had to step over human feces just to continue on with the trail. 4. The second half (rocky part) of the hike was overgrown, and poorly taken care of. At times it was difficult finding where the trail lead. The waterfall at the end of the hike was rewarding, and was a great spot to rest and take photos. The water was nice and cool. Unfortunately this area too was hit with graffiti on the rocks. This was an okay hike, and one to add to the list of completed, but I wouldn’t hike it a second time.

Really cool trail. Had a really good time driving up. Lots of flies on the top but other than that awesome

Amazing hike, you just have a permit! Go in the morning to avoid crowds at the watering hole. A few fun wineries outside of the trail to visit after the hike

Hike was great but the trails were a bit hard to follow- specifically to get up to the “monument.” I recommend downloading the map to make sure you stay on track.

This is a really fun trail. Consistent incline on the way up. You can continue all the way to Mariposa Reserve and an old Native American site. Be wary of poison oak, specifically at the base of the trailhead where many hikers head towards the Blackstar falls. I wasn’t so careful - learn from my mistake and enjoy!

I liked it very much. Very good hike. I tired to go the further hike beside the water fall. I went to the top but my friend couldn’t do it so, I came back. It will be lot’s of fun if you get chance to go the further hike beside water fall.

Love this trail

Super good beginner trail. Four wheel drive recommended but definitely not necessary. I drive a 2wd tacoma and have driven the trail many times without issue. Trail is skinny with drops on one side in certain parts but very easy to get through. A vehicle with over a foot of clearance is highly recommended. Check the website to see if gates are open before you go. https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/cleveland/recreation/ohv/?cid=stelprdb5340229 have fun and be safe

Great trail. Get there early as it will be packed! We got there at 7:30 and there were already a good amount of people by the time we were walking back at around 11am the parking lot was so crowded. Would probably take you twice as long to get to the falls with that many people on the trail. I dont recommend bringing a large dog unless you are ready to carry it over a ton of boulders. Also, my car was broken into and someone took all my credit cards. Dont leave valuables in the car.

A gun hike with bouldering and a waterfall at the end. To avoid crowds, arrive early or you’ll have to wait behind the slower crowd.
