I hiked from Telegraph Trailhead up, to down through Kiwanis Canyon, across the open desert on Las Lomitas Trail, up Ranger Trail, across ridgeline of National Trail, and back down to Telegraph Trailhead. About 7 miles. Telegraph was not intimidating, as I had heard. Nice views on it and ran into a white tail and a red tail chuckwalla lizard. Kiwanis was a beautiful hike through a cooler canyon, with views of the winding highway up above. Las Lomitas was just wide open desert. The hike up Ranger was winding with switchbacks. Thought I was never going to get to the top. If you are afraid of heights, this one might be a bit intimidating. The National Trail on top was incredibly beautiful, windy, and peaceful. I met 3 nice bikers up there. The hike down was nice, as well. I plan to hike it in reverse.

Great trail connections. A lot of the grasses have dried out but the cactus are still in bloom. Kiwanis was awesome & a sort of hidden canyon trail. Lomitas & Ranger were very lightly trafficked. Lomitas was quite flat & easy with a few spots to stop at picnic benches. Ranger had a great switchback trail that connected to National. National rose the ridgeline until we connected at the old ranger station & came back down Telegraph.
