Great hike and weather couldn't have been better. the first 2 1/2 miles are hard but the rest is a steady uphill except for the manzanilla section. Levels off for a good breather around 3 1/2 mile mark but then it's up again. Good workout. Hard to say if it's easy, moderate, hard, etc because everyone is their own person and have different skill levels. I hike quite a bit and it's difficult at times. I average about 20-21 minutes a mile going up if that's a good yardstick. Saw a couple campers at Limber Pines area. Loved the hike and met some really good people from HikescapeLA at the summit. Hikers are good people! Don't forget to get your permit for San Bernardino Peak and all the other local hikes at the Mill Creek Ranger Station which is about 14 miles before the trailhead. They open at 8am but the forms are outside if you get there before that.

Went here with the intention of getting all the way to San Gorgonio peek. Unfortunately had a late start due to not having an adventure pass ahead of time, and having to wait til 8am for the local store to open. Tip: buy adventure pass ahead of time. I haven't hiked or worked out in over a year and the trail wasn't too bad, it's definetely tough specially that first mile but it's steady. I loved the views. Will definetely be back to make it all the way up!!

Should be rated as easy Trail. It is more like a road than a trail. Still a pretty walk.

This is a tight, fun trail with lots of great views all along the way. At the trailhead it's listed as "Blue/Moderate" rather than "Hard. I would agree. Though there are challenging sections and TONS of sharp rocks that make things slow going, we never dragged a skid. Fortunately, in we've never encountered someone going the other way, because turnouts are few and far between.

short, moderate, dog friendly trail with great views, great company, and spiritual significance

Short hike, but beautiful and fun.

A lot of foot traffic and dogs

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!
