Some parts are very narrow with loose rock.

fun trail but couldn’t have followed without the all trails app. Parts of the trail were overgrown so I had to take a few detours you were using the app.

For half of the loop I had the trail to myself. A little overgrown in the latter half just because not many people go down that way. Classic southern California shrubbery and lots of summer wildflowers in bloom!

First time using this app. Pretty fun however you definitely need to pay attention to the trails.

Couldn't complete loop--couldn't find trail near the half way point. Mostly scenic, parts on a road. 2 uphill sections steep but didn't have to stop. Would rate better if could complete the loop.

This trail was incredibly hard to follow. It seemed like no matter what I did I ended up on the wrong trail. Because of that, I hiked just over 4 miles, but that's OK. I just wish this map was a little bit easier to follow. Overall the hike wasn't too difficult but I think because I ended up not being able to follow this map I ended up on a couple pretty difficult sections that I was not expecting. Overall it's a really nice area and I plan on going back and hiking there more.

Shortened route that is the quickest ascent to the caldera but lacks the extended trail's walk around the lake and hike through native plants.

Enjoyable hike. Parts maintained well, other parts very muddy. So many different trails to take, you could get kind of lost. Great views.

First time my sister and I have ever went on a hike since moving to California. It was such an adventure so many different trails I’d def suggest taking your phone I could see people easily getting lost. The view from the top was beautiful and the breeze felt so amazing after the long haul up.
