Very beautiful! A lot of hills! the destination was kind of a let down compared to the views through out the hike. So we went about a mile further to the very top of the hill made it a million times better!

Easy parking. Steady incline the entire way but shady. Ends at campground. Saw several dogs and a deer. Well marked path with lots of different flowers and foliage. Did it in about 1.75 hours going slow and resting at the top to soak up the sights.

Pleasant.
More on the easier end of moderate than a true "easy" hike (for those who like to differentiate). It's worth an afternoon.

Nice trail good incline in the beginning. There is a mix of open area and shade. Brought my dogs on leash. There are some people that let their dog off leash. There is good parking and bathrooms by the parking area.

Great little hike. Brought my dog. Most of it is uphill so be prepared for that. The way back down is easy. Takes you straight to a nice little campground. If you walk to the back of the camp ground you can catch a pretty nice view of the other side of the mountain.

Lovely hike but had to stop half way because snow completely blocked a narrow and steep part of the trail so there was no safe way through/around. Lots of fallen trees on the trail as well.

incline all the way up to the camp ground you'll feel the burn later but with it. there's a small bridge but no steam, definitely be back in the spring to catch the flow.

The directions to the trail head are not correct. The trail head and some parking are across from the Forest Information building (it's big and made of stone, you can't miss it) and right next to a restroom/rest stop. The trail itself is beautiful, especially if you go at sunrise, and mostly shaded. It is uphill all the way to the campsite. There is a bench as the one mile marker if you need rest halfway up :) The campground is nice and shaded as well. And the PCT is just up the hill from the camp. Went on 8/13, hopefully the fire hasn't destroyed it.

This is a nice trail with a steady incline all the way to the top of the hill, where you hit the campground.
Almost 95% of the trail is shaded but be ready to feel the burn on your legs from the constant incline up the hill.
We got there early in the morning and saw almost no other hikers. On the way down in the afternoon we passed a lot of people who were coming up.
All in all, it's a great hike that definitely gets your blood pumping.

Pretty trail with lots of shade. Good moderate uphill climb. Directions took me to the wrong place. Read that it was across from Big Pines Visitor center but there is no Big Pines Visitor center. The building is now labeled Forest Information (but no one was there.) Across the street there are restrooms and that parking lot has a sign leading to the Blue Ridge trailhead. At the end of the trail, when you get to the campground, take the dirt road to the left to pick up the Pacific Crest trail (just around the bend). The extra 10 minutes of hiking takes you to the top of the hill with fantastic views!
