Great trail, first 7 miles are mountainous with lots of brush. Mostly follows a small creek and crosses it several times. Long pants are a must and a brush axe was very helpful. The rough stuff ends in a dry, sandy, river bed (looks like it has significant flow in the in the wet season and would be uncrossable if it were flowing) that lasts for about 3 miles. After that it becomes much less fun. At the 11mile mark you just follow the road. It’s a steady uphill for the next 3 miles and is exhausting. Seeing the car at the end of that was incredible!

This is a tough and strenuous trail. Be ready for the beating. When you get to the creak you have to guess your way to the camp site. I suggest going as a group in case something happens. Not a one person hike.

Me and some friends hiked this last weekend, gorgeous as always, got in the water, had the beach to ourselves absolutely perfect day, however, make sure to hide valuables in your vehicle or better yet don't leave any there!!! (I know common sense right) multiple vehicle break ins occur here and I myself have been a victim of this other than that, this is my favorite hike in the area by far!

The trail climbs up from the saddle at the top of Colson Canyon. Turn left at the fuel break and follow it shortly, then drop down into a pleasant canyon. Past the campground, a map may be required as game trails are just as obvious as the real trail. Pink ribbons do show some of the route. Over a ridge, the trail hits an old road cut and a sign marks the top of Weber Trail. Take the trail down to the jeep road below and follow it to where Colson meets La Brea, then back up Colson to the saddle for the loop. The Weber is marked at the bottom as well for those going in the opposite direction.

I actually continued down the old road cut further. It passes Difficult Spring, which wasn't much to see. It forks and the right goes out to a nice viewpoint in an easy mile. The left heads down to meet La Brea a mile further downstream. The old road cut past Weber is unmaintained and overgrown and extremely tick infested. This route touches on private property that Weber misses.
