Excellent hike. There was plenty of parking at the trailhead. The trail is a fire road - approximately 20 feet wide. It is paved in the beginning. The pavement disappears in most places as you get further away from the trailhead. This is a shared trail with mountain bikers but there is enough space for both hikers and bikers. Trail climbs steadily up the first five miles. There are some ups and downs during mile six and then it's back to straight uphill. I continued past the turnoff to Beek's Place and the KSOX Doppler Radar Antenna to near the KSRT radio antennas before turning back and going up the Main Divide Road to Beek's Place and the radar antenna. I was at 9 miles at the radar antenna. It's a great place to stop for lunch and to enjoy the view. Looking west you can see out to the coast. Looking east you can see Corona, Norco and Riverside. On the way back I checked out the beginning of the trail to Black Star Falls but didn't continue on as it was getting late on a winter afternoon. I will definitely hike from the Black Star Canyon trailhead again.
