beautiful!!! all green!!!
Beautiful views and not crowded at all !
super crowded. It should say heavily-trafficked trail with lots of mountain bikers. It is pretty, but poor signage is confusing. There is a ranger trailer with a very nice, helpful ranger. If you're looking for a nice, peaceful hike this is not for you. If you're a mountain biker or runner, you'll love it.
Went for a quick hike about 11:15 on a perfect Saturday (first weekend of March). Parking lot was full. Managed to get a spot that I assume someone else had recently vacated. People were parked in most every conceivable place that wasn't designated no parking. By 11:00 parking will usually free up some but not this particular day. When planning a hike in Cheeseboro Canyon on a weekend, I'd have an alternative in mind. Between the parking lot closing because it's too muddy and it being full because its a good day, you may need to go to plan B. If you're in a group with multiple cars, carpooling is recommended.
It is raining season, it is spring, it is so green... some area is muddy, but the view is so pretty ..
The canyon is green! The rain has made the hills green but many trails are muddy. This one through the canyon is passable. A couple spots where you couldn't completely avoid the mud but it wasn't deep. FYI, they will lock the gate to the parking area if it's too muddy. They did it January 2. You may want to have a backup location in mind if hiking shortly after a rain.
Small parking lot. Get there early, or there will be no place to park.
Hiked from Cheeseboro Canyon Trailhead to the intersection with the Palo Comado Canyon Trail. Sun was rather hot but fortunately the trail has no hills to climb and you can hike it shade to shade. There are a couple long sunny stretches but about the time you're really needing some relief you get to another patch of shade. There's almost always a breeze which helps mitigate the heat a lot.
