I'm kind of a beginner mountain biker and I didn't think that this trail was all single track I've ridden it on my horse and maybe we took some connector trails remember some more gravel roads .this was all single track but it wasn't undoable for a beginner I did walk in a few places where there was lots of rocks but I was able to ride over a few it was a really well Marked Trail and I really enjoyed it and I would definitely do it again

Dragged the family and a city dog for the experience which meant our pace was a bit slower than normal....but even with that we banged it out in about 75 mins. Did it in reverse and didn't encounter any major mud/puddle issues until we got to about C4 thru C2. Didn't know about the elevation change...and since we were going from C6 to C5.... it was a bit of an uphill climb for novices. You can avoid by making it a downhill climb doing it in # order as it doesn't appear there is any other dramatically elevation point. Enjoyed the loop...right on my backyard

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
