First time taking the lifted 4Runner out. No water in August, but some technical areas. No scraping of the vehicle. In 4 High most of the time, put it in 4 Low on one incline, and one decline. Took 2N75 back to Arrowhead to make a quick trip back to the house.

love this trail. I've both hiked and MTB it

Very short and easy trail. Very pretty, but be careful of falling pinecones. The animal foot prints were very cute. It says no dogs, but it was a dog ok trail. We did see dogs there. Definitely will go there again.

Great hike, did it backpacking over 2 nights 2.5 days. Did a bit of the scenic route so it was more like 32 miles or something. Amazing adventure, first night camped at cucamonga second night on baldy. Met some great people made amazing memories and overall had one of the coolest experiences I’ve yet to live, 10/10 recommend. Did it early June and the weather was good, being like 10L of water if your doing this in one day though!

Easy, shady trail. Not long but beautiful and educational. Great for families with small children.

Nice hike, not difficult and the oasis is cool but loses a star for the horse manure everywhere. And you have to move out of the way when horses need to pass, at times perching up on the edge of the trail. I think riders should be required to have the horse diapers on them so hikers don't have the poop obstacle course and they get to enjoy the stench instead of us... We renamed it Horsesh!t Canyon, ;)

Super simple trail, we went during July and no creak water crossing. Not a bad trail though, super easy didn’t even engage 4x. Lifted sequoia.

This is more of a walk, with a paved path. It's a very pleasant walk and changes with the seasons. I've walked this in the rain and it was great! nice coverage through one third of the walk.

It's really nice, well kept up, densely forested, easy stroll with clean bathrooms, and nicely tagged scrubs, trees, wild flowers, ground cover, etc.. It's right on Hwy 18 with big parking lot. It's a great place to stretch. A tourist delight. Brochures galore at the trail head, free.

It truly is one of the most unique and beautiful trails ever. It's a real oasis. When are you going to get to see that!

My husband and I are first time jeepers. This was definitely a fun one for us. There were a couple challenging parts but we did it just fine in our stock Rubicon.

I live about 5 minutes from this trail and it never gets old. great workout and super fun and technical downhill.

Best route for a bike is to ride up KP road and down the trail. Use a bell or even a whistle as there are a lot of hikers.

While generally down hill, it is an enduro run with more pedal strokes than you might imagine. there are some natural drops and jumps to be had and lots of teethe rattling rocky sections.

Despite the description, this is a legal mountain bike trail.

Was a perfect little trail, plenty of areas to explore and even let my sister drive my Jeep to try to off-road (now she wants one) trails are very clean, no graffiti or trash. The last little bit where you come to the water you can either park or if you have the clearance then you can drive down there as well. Even saw some wild trout down at the pond at the end.

Nice trail for a short walk. The path is narrow, so be prepared to keep any dogs on a short leash.

Short walk in pretty area. Note, you need a nature pass to park here.

A little short, but perfect for jogging with your dog.

Great hike with great views. Watch out for ticks!!! Both my dogs and I had them. This would be best during the fall.

This is a very solid hike in the dry Southern California Mountains. We did the Exploration Trail from the TH near Hwy 18 going uphill one way to the intersection of Keller Peak Rd. and the Exploration Trail ending point . It was a car shuttle (one car at the bottom, and the other near "Children's Forest"). We then drove to the top of Keller peak for some additional views. Note - the road gets very narrow from Children's Forest to the top of Keller Peak, though worth doing once. Avoid the drive on weekends. The 3,500 ft drop-off to the southwest near the top is impressive in spots. We saw no hiking trails there independent of the paved road, i.e., if your hiking to the top, your on the paved roads from Children's Forest to the top pretty much. Your welcome to climb the final fire outlook station once your at Keller Peak if personal is there (they are usually there). Our hike was just 4 miles long with 1440 ft elevation gain one way. Nicely kept trail, nothing "ledgy", and hard to go wrong. More Mountain bikes than hikers though. Some variety in scenery. Note - to go from "Children's Forest" to the peak, there is no clear trails to avoid the road, at least on the southern side, and we were looking for them, regardless of tracks on alltrails.

Nice, leisurely stroll with awesome views

Today was my first time doing off road. I love this trail. I recommend it for beginners. Too much fun!!!

Very nice out and back trail. I also recommend that when you return to the parking lot to tack on the San Andreas loop.

This tail doesn't disappoint! Easy and incredibly scenic, the palm tree-lined path follows a natural spring Creek along side stunning canyon rocks. Pick a shady spot to have lunch or meditate. It's one of my favorite hikes in the world. The trail isn't paved, so may not accomdate waffles with special mobility needs. It's a great hike for kids, with lots of lizards and birds to watch, as well.

Easy trail, gorgeous greenery mixed with the feel of the desert.

Be aware of $9 per person entrance fee. Well worth it. The trail is part of Indian Canyons. It was a fun and interesting hike lots of beauty and interesting features. I'd definitely hike it again.

Beautiful but on the easier side. I would not give this a moderate rating. The falls and pool at the end are beautiful.

the first mile is in the dry heat of Palm Springs. Once you get to the river, it is amazing! You cross the river several times and as much as I tried to keep my feet dry-they were wet. I ended up just saying f it and walking in the water instead-just ring out your socks. your clothes will be dry by the time you get back to your car.

Great hike through the canyon! The waterfall was a little underwhelming in late April.
