Great hike! once you get to the main junction at the top you can keep going up to Bertha Peak but stick to the right. Overall a great hike with amazing views of Big Bear Lake.

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.

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.

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

Nice hike...went early on a Wednesday morning and didn't see another soul the whole way up or back. Great views of San Gorgonio Mountain on one side and Big Bear Valley and distant desert on the other.

You can hike this in a day, but I don't think it would be enjoyable. You'd have to rush through it. Instead, we did it in two days. On day 1, we hiked to High Creek Campground, which is a little less than 6 miles in with 3,200 elevation gain. It's a great place to stay, but the wind was intense. Our tents were blowing the whole night. The creek was flowing strong there so we only had to bring 2 liters to that point. The next day, we got up early and hit the summit. It was very foggy for the last 2 miles, so we couldn't see any views from the summit. Still, the way up and down has incredible views, so it was worth it.

Beautiful views all along this trail. It is pretty rocky so watch your footing. Must have an adventure pass when parking at the trail head or they will ticket you.

We hiked on Labor Day weekend so the trail had quite a few other hikers. It will be nice to go back and see what the traffic is like on the trail on a regular weekend. The views are beautiful! The trail is rocky so be mindful of your footing
