Great hike with a fantastic camping area (if you get there early enough to find a good spot). There is a great waterfall to stand under and cool down near the campsite.
The peak: great views and great winds too! Very good hike all around.

Challenging with a variety of terrain.

EVENTFUL TREKKING ALL THE WAY UP THE MANY SWITCHBACKS AND OVER FAKE PEAKS AND UP TO THE PEAK...definitely a beautiful hike, a bear ran across the trail 45 feet in front of me. Does and buck grazing and curious chipmunks along the way. It took me 12.5 hours with a slower pace and break along way not to mention pictures. Drank all 6litters of water.

I've hiked this trail a few times with my wife. The trails are open from dusk till dawn. You definitely want to get there early morning or evening as the sun is unrelenting and there's no shade. It takes us about 30 minutes to get to the top, but it could be done much more quickly. I bring a bottle of water 17 oz, which is plenty for me. The view looking over Palm Desert with the cross in the background is pretty interesting.

Great hike. Awesome views of the lake. Can take the trail to meet up with the PCT. Loved this hike

Super easy trail. Perfect for beginners. Went with my sister who carried a baby on her back the entire time. My dog had a blast. We didn't see very many people. Definitely a fun little trail.

Nice easy trail. With some harder cut off. one can do this run with a stock rig.

This trail gave me trouble on my first try, not because of its difficulty but because I got totally overheated. This trail is well populated and folks of all ages use it. It is a nice hike to start your day, but I would caution about the heat on hot days, if you are sensitive to heat. My second time I did well, but there was a nice breeze. Early morning or evening is best during late spring and summer.

The falls are awesome, it's super tall and had a lot of water when we went in June. Lots of graffiti. We used our own trash bags we had on hand to gather trash out of the trail to the trash cans at the start of the hike. Lots of people and easy hike. Not a moment of solace kind of hike, which is why I give three stars. More like a Disneyland hike. Pretty short, not hard to get to but worth the trip and super cool for kids to see and get used to hiking and be happy to have found a cool waterfall in the hills. If you go past the small canyon where the falls are to the next little inlet to the left, there's another smaller falls and a great natural water slide. Be careful there though, if you break your ankle you'll need to be choppered out. It's a much harder hike with some bouldering required. The water slide was about an hour of fun for us. If you throw trash on the trail you're a jackass.
