So fun. Did it Saturday on Labor Day weekend and didn't see anyone. Beautiful and quiet!

Saw no other hikers on the entire trail on a sunny Tuesday morning. Fairly easy going. Initially shaded, then pretty exposed for the second half of the trail. Lots of lovely views and still very green for the time of year.

Easy parking for all cars in a large lot on the side of road.

Trail was easy and had a few shaded spots. Couple of really nice views. Good for a day hike.

Wife and I did this trail while staying up in Big Bear, the weather was perfect, mid 70's. Little difficult for her, she's not use to the elevation, 6850 ft average. However, she did also enjoyed. The views of the desert floor were great.
