great hike. It's too bad there are people out there who can't respect other people's land.

This Trail gave me the motivation to quit smoking. Lungs almost popped but I made it to the top. Sad it's closed now... did this Trail about 2-3 times a week

They wired up the place now and dont allow people to go, but was one of the funnest trails I've been on. Super steep, like crawling on all fours steep. I loved it

does anybody know if its currently closed? I've lived here my whole life and I just started hiking this year, didn't know there was trails like this near home. It looks beautiful.

went a couple times before closed even went at night one time there was hella stars it was dope

closed!!! ya know!!! certain people like like to leave graffiti and trash!!!

Great video of hike- now closed due to graffiti and trash left by people.
It was really cool !

Such a beautiful trail. Hopefully it gets reopened soon!

Trail closed by land owner

"This is why we can't have nice things." Sadly, the trail was closed by the land owner... And I can't blame him. People left quite a bit of trash, did graffiti, and would not stay on the trail... This is not the way to enjoy the great outdoors. Pack it in, pack it out and only leave footprints. Simple right...?

Pretty view, great exercise, a little dangerous at times. Not sure if I would take children up here. Sadly it's closed down now. I'm glad I got to experience it before that happened.

This trail it's closed there is no way to do it

Very Fun and quiet, definite recommend, and the trail was open

The land owner closed the trail.

If you're looking for a hike that is close, strenuous, and will get you high enough in elevation to avoid the Bakersfield air, this one is for you. This is a very popular hike, particularly on weekends. I saw young and old attempting this one, most turning around before summiting. The trail isn't bad initially, and is quite gradual. But it eventually steepens and has some good climbs that will definitely get your heart pumping. Whomever made this trail probably should have added a few switchbacks, as awful as they are, because it would have easily improved the accessibility of this hike. I enjoyed this in February. The temps were mild, and it was green. This isn't the case for most of the year. Pack water and wear sunscreen.
