I made a 7.8 mile loop by starting from Elivan, into the park and left on Pomona Trail, then into East Fenceline, Corral, equestrian staging area, Bane Ridge to Bane Canyon Road and out. Great hike and only overgrown part was a short section of Pomona. Got very hot, though.

Got confused where is the trailhead. It was pretty but I felt it would be better if we went in Spring so that everything would be covered in green instead of yellow...

The red trail line on the map isn’t only Bane Canyon Road; it also includes Bane Ridge Trail, and it was very narrow and full of bugs. No shade.

The trail is overgrown but I considered it part of the charm. I did the full 5.8 mile loop. Had no issues with bugs. But I do I recommend wearing long sleeves and pants since the trails is tight. If tight spaces bother you maybe keep to the fire access road which give great views of the valley. The fire access road is completely exposed so dress accordingly and watch for vehicles. Overall, I loved the trail and would do it again.

Couldn’t find trail. Lots of over brush. Ticks and pollen. Park closes at 7pm

You can't really hike this trail right now unfortunately. It's just too overgrown. You can push through the overgrown parts for the first 7-8 minutes, but it becomes too much once you get to where it splits between Bane Canyon Trail and Sidewinder. Directly across the road from the Bane trail head is East Fenceline and some others, which were even worse. Couldn't progress more than 2-3 minutes there before it just becomes exhausting to push through all the weeds. It looks like a beautiful park, but Bane Canyon and Fenceline are not passable right now. Idk about the other smaller trails once you go in past the entrance kiosk. I can't give this place a real star rating because I only did like 10% of what I planned to do. Just letting everyone know what to expect.

Heavily overgrown trails, but still a nice ride. bring bug spray. 4-5 stars if trails we're cleared.

Beautiful trail and great work out! I was hoping to see the poppies but it was mostly the mustard plants/flowers.

poppys still in bloom about 1 mile up.

Half of the trail is just walking along the road. I would almost suggest just taking the trail out and back. It’s really quite beautiful. Full sun the entire time. But walking through fields of flowers and other tall grasses. We parked parked outside of the park and it added an extra few miles to our trip which felt great.

Overgrown weeds in some part of the trail. Some people were up there for wildflowers, crowded from the entrance on Sapphire road all the way to ranger station.
