on Bill Cull Trail

5 days ago

A nice short hike. I should note that this trail actually links to the Nature/Waterfall trail. If you're not a fan of steep climbing, I recommend using this when you leave from the waterfalls.

If you do enter this from the falls, the first half is shaded but after that, you'll be exposed to the sun the rest of the way

Great hike with the kids, clean and neat trail. All uphill on the way there and the waterfall was pleasant.

Nice easy trail with a small waterfall at the end.

didn't get to hike this trail because the gate was locked and park closed due to "extreme heat". it was around 100. we contemplated parking outside and jumping the gate to do the hike anyway, but decided to go somewhere else and avoid potential drama. it also says that the park closes at 5p. not sure if this is actually enforced, but maybe not a great spot for afternoon hikers like me, who like to finish around sunset.

We parked at nearest lot just north of fork to go towards scout camp. The paved road to the trail head is a hike itself and was recorded at about 1.5 miles. We went through the stone pillars to start the trail head, down to twin springs then up to Deer Park Cabin. This part was confusing as the trail just dead ends past the mule corral..so we backtracked then couldn't decide if we head towards the sign that said restrooms or go back down to the twin springs...we went back down to twin springs and took the lower trail which luckily led to a fire road and we were back on track per the map from the app. Turns out, we probably were supposed to take the trail towards restrooms. I wish the signs had more info like distance, how to get to road, etc. Round trip from car was 8 miles! It was brutal compared to other trails in the area like Monrovia Falls, Eaton Canyon, Sturtavent Falls. Almost felt like climbing would never end. It was cool to see the history of my town but it wasn't as pretty as previously mentioned trails. It gets an A+ for lightly trafficked..it was nice to not be bothered with other hikers. It's a Sunday and saw maybe 10 people total.
