This is a fun truck trail for a nice relaxing drive. The trail is very smooth and not very many curves. It takes about an hour to complete. At the end of the trail you will be spit out on the 79 in Descanso. Instead of turning around at the end of the trail just follow the 79 to the 8 freeway to return to wherever you are coming from.

Good for gentle off-road - great for off road with strenuous hiking at Three Sister Falls. Nice vistas, water falls and switch backs. A bit long and monotonous.

If you are looking for off-roading experience this trail is not it. Although it is a nice scenery drive like other review said. I went with the hope of checking out some nice scenery with a little nice off-roading experience but was a little disappointed. You don't need an off-road vehicle for this trail, most people you see on this trail have 2wd sedan cars just sight-seeing.

It was fun, but wasn't quite as offroad as I liked to imagine. When I started to see Prius's and other economy cars I was thinking I'm in the wrong spot,lol. However, if you make it to the to where the hiking trail is, you'll find the actual offroad portion and the GPS will tell you is called "Three Sisters Falls". Great for the beginner offroad looking to get their feet wet.

This is a fun truck trail for a nice relaxing drive. The trail is very smooth and not very many curves. I would not do this trail if you are looking for a exiting expereince. On the other hand it has great scenery. It takes about an hour to complete. At the end of the trail you will be spit out on the 79 in Descanso. Instead of turning around at the end of the trail just follow the 79 to the 8 freeway to return to whereever you are coming from.
