Kind of a boring hike. crossed the dirt road too many times. Do the Spring Trail, it is close by and much more scenic.

One of the best hikes in the area (next to Mt. Baldy of course). Take the extra time to do the summit. Great views of Mt. Baldy.

Great hike. Well-marked, mileage completely accurate. Definitely take the 1-mile roundtrip up to Pat Mullen "mountain" view point. Not a great view, but adds a mile and gets the heart pumping.

Considering we did this the day after it snowed, it was more challenging. the trail was slushy and muddy so it was hard to follow. Very cool to be within the ponderosa though. We are visiting from California and staying at a resort down the road. It was a nice day

Easy walk through woods and meadows. Optional half mile climb is also easy. Super nice if you're looking for a simple hike.
