Well maintained trail. Good for a family hike

Had a late start, about 0930 approx.. I only made it to the junction of Half way camp and Vivian creek trail due to the person i brought wasn't conditioned for such an adventure. Still a great trek. Lots of beautiful views within just the first mile or so. The first mile really isn't that bad if you have decent endurance level. Keep in mind i carried only about 15 lbs in my pack. If you're going to bring a partner or group, I highly recommend them being in shape so they do not ruin or halt your Plans!

loved it & very dog friendly.

Nice views of the desert cities once you cross the PCT, and nice vistas to the south on the way back down the switchbacks. Lots of mosquitoes and flies once you're at Cedar Springs. 6.6 miles out and back.

Nice hike that oscillates between easygoing scenic wooded strolls and vertical treks up dusty switchbacks. The peak is a bit underwhelming and the lookout 2/3 the way up is better in my opinion.
I prefer the Cactus to Cloud hike up Mount San Jacinto next door.

Nice scenic trail with a bunch of marked destinations to learn about.

Beautiful trail well defined, however, we found a family of Four lost because they managed to get out of the trail and got confused to how get back to the parking lot.
Good the we happen to come by. Not good if is getting late in the afternoon and gets dark early.
Please follow the trail.
Nevertheless, the trail was very nice, views were beautiful, nice fall colors, markers and maps were well defined.

Nice trail. Probably wouldn’t bring young kids or elderly. If you plan on going all the way to the waterfall, staying up high makes for easier navigation through the rocks at the end.

Gorgeous trail! We hiked this with our German Shepard (on leash) and loved that it was very well marked, shaded (cold if you start too early) and the breathtaking views. Husband did not like that it was not a straight up and back...lots of switchbacks, but did not bother me. Good parking!
