Nice and challenging trail. Took me about 2 hours. Not much shade. Saw lots of bunnies and lizards. Birds were singing. Shortly after the pay area, there's a bathroom. Maybe a water fountain. I'd revisit after it rains. So much brown and not enough green.

Nice trail, can’t wait to do this one in a few months after it rains so the hills are more green.

Pretty good hike to get back into hiking. Wasn’t too bad in the inclines either. You can always add on nearby trails to make your hike longer/increase difficulty. Got a nice workout and I got to discover some of what chino hills state park has to offer.

Lots of bikers on this trail though...

Great loop for a trail run. Has some challenging hills and a nice stretch along the ridge. Good views of the hills!

This loop ended up being 8.2 miles. Elevation was 1000 feet. Lots of ups and downs. Beautiful single tracks. Really enjoyed hiking Bane. Highly recommended

Really great trail. Clean bathrooms at the halfway point. Amazing yellow coyote squash just growing in the wild! Rolling hills and new growth of grass makes this place that much more special.

Pretty and Safe.

Great hike! Wide trails and some good inclines. Great for kids of all ages. I️ carried our 30lb daughter in our Osprey Poco Pack and was able to manage. There are horses on some trails which make for a real treat!

The trail has multiple trailheads at the start, middle, and end; asking a ranger is easiest for finding the best one for you. The trail was fairly overgrown at parts after all the rain, but it made for some dramatic clearings. Wall to wall black mustard with a bit of milk thistle mixed in, very pretty right now with everything in full bloom. Best of all, we hardly saw a soul in 3 hours of hiking, on a Saturday even. Trail forms a loop by using the Aliso Canyon and Sidewinder trails.

Wow, just wow so beautiful! After a lot of rain this year, so many flowers are in bloom. It's like a golden dream. Highly recommend going right now. It can get pretty grassy and flowery at points, so wear pants and a long sleeve, unless you want flower dust all over you. I even saw tarantula so watch out for critters!

I would update the profile picture b/c this park is vibrantly green after all the winter rain this year! Beautiful rolling hills and spring wildflowers. I recommend checking out this trail but wear long pants and bring a long sleeved shirt b/c the flowers are super tall.

I rushed over here to see the wildflowers and green hills from the rain before they were gone, and I'm glad I did! I have mixed feelings about the trail itself; half of the loop follows a paved road so I had to keep an eye out for motor vehicles, it was fairly busy on a Saturday morning, and there was virtually no shade. But there were several patches of beautiful flowers and also a few spots high up with a great view that made it worth it! I would recommend this trail while it's still green. Bring a hat, water, sunscreen, and maybe even long pants as protection while wading through narrow trails with tall grasses.

Walked up the shared road and hiked one of trails with my 5 year old son. He loved it and didn't want to go home. The trail had no shade. However, we felt a nice breeze the entire time.

Lots of beautiful wildflowers along the ridge in March. Starts to get hot and crowded closer to the afternoon. Would definitely come here again.

Went to see wild flowers..wild flowers are about 1.5 miles from trailhead. off trails are extremely overgrown. Lots of thistle to walk through. The loop itself was fine. Did about 10 miles.

Only walked the first mile and half or so, didn't make it to the southern turn point. Grade was pretty flat after initial moderate incline. Stayed on the paved road. Unpaved side trails were closed due to recent rain. The upside was everything was unusually green. View was great from the road in a south facing draw. Would like to have made it to the ridge line for what was a spectacular sunset we had to watch from the highway on the way home. Will definitely head back when it's a little drier and hike the ridge and side trails. Have a feeling the photos won't be quite as beautiful without all the green from the rain but still a great trail.
