This trail is overgrown & you end up losing the trail about a quarter mile in.

5/24/2020 - Pretty easy fire road. Went up with a stock 2019 JLUR, and was in 2H the entire time. The trail is out and back— so please be considerate/courteous to other drivers coming in your direction. Ran into one rude pair that pretty much tried to hit us head on, expecting us to get the hell out of their way. Communicate with your fellow off-roaders and find a safe place to pull to the side to let others pass by you. Make sure you stick with the trail to the end. Pretty rewarding experience once you reach the water.

it is a fairly short hike but challenging due to the elevation gain. Parts of the hike are through granite boulders that could have come from Joshua Tree National Park. The trail markers help but even with the downloaded map we got off trail at times. But the ultimate goal is clear and we made it to the top. The 360 views at the top were amazing? including Lake Silverwood. We started fairly early and were glad to get back before it got too hot. The wild flowers were out and beautiful.

Beautiful trail through the tall pines. Rewarded at the Grand View overlook with views of Mt San Gorgonio Parking on the street of lot is full. Great shade and nothing really steep on the incline. Loved this hike, perfect choice for our day hike

We were there very early today and there were several large groups that were being very loud and disrespectful. There is trash and graffiti on the beautiful trail. I would not recommend this at all and would not ever come back. Trail is not clearly marked to find the heart rock and was more on the difficult verses easy side. Parking was fine at 7 am but when we left at 9:15 it was a mess. No restrooms

Crowded but was a stunning view and easy to find trail.

Well established,out and back trail, with plenty of scenery. Good father-daughter day. The trail does track the river but you never come in contact with it... River is a couple hundred feet below, but we could hear it the entire walk. Getting my daughter into hiking and this was an excellent trail to test her interest. Advise some caution to those new to hiking as the trail descends the whole way out, so when planning out your distance, please keep in mind the way back will be a bit more effort (at no point would I consider the trail steep or challenging though).

Only real challenging part of the hike is the scramble down and up the hill to the springs, and avoiding the mass of humanity, many naked, at the springs. It was much more relaxing to find our own watering hole downstream. We did not enjoy the warm water, but enjoyed the scenery much more. It's pretty clear there is no enforcement of the no overnight camping restrictions, as many of the visitors appeared to be settled in for an extended period. And, unfortunately like make of these hikes there are too many people disrespectful of the beauty of nature who selfishly leave their trash all over the place. Overall a nice hike but I won't rush back.

Really beautiful trail, lots of wildflowers along with new growth in the first few miles of the trail. We camped at Jackstraw Creek, which had pretty good cover from the wind. Temps drop at night significantly and felt colder than forecasted, so bring extra layers. From about 5 miles onward there were patches of snow covering the trail, but the snow was melting rapidly. Beautiful views along the way up. Definitely recommend trekking poles for this, especially due to the snow. Spikes were not required.

Really nice trail. Not terribly steep - very manageable. Maintained. Dog friendly. Decent view. Pretty easy to find yourself off trail, but just as easy to find your way back. Parking was a bit of a trick. We went off trail to explore some of the bigger boulders nearby to get a better view of the lake. A good beginner’s hike.

Great hike and had more incline at the beginning than I thought. There was a moderate amount of others, but not unmanageable. Lots of fun and recommended.

Nice moderate hike, lots of dogs! Moderately trafficked today due to the holiday weekend. Bathrooms are closed, portapoty is gross.
