this was a nice hike, the first part starting in frome the parking area is a little steep but not bad at all, after that it's up and down easy hike, the creek was really nice great view's, well shaded along the way, good trail to do in the summer, good trail to take if you have little ones, just remember to stop along the way and take in the scenery that's what it's all about my fellow brother and sister hikers, enjoy !!

beautiful trail. the parking lot is down a ride that is a little rocky (far enough down a road that you kind of feel like your not supposed to be there. the trail is beautiful but narrow so I would say for older kids. the first 1/2-1 mile is the hardest and steep right from the parking lot but if you can push past it you won't be disappointed.

As Matt stated, closed at fork with John's Meadow, which we hiked. Nice, mostly pine covered trail with a couple of very small water sources. Lots of bugs in these areas. Passed two guys wearing mosquito netting. Hike it out to end of trail, eat in the shade, then hike it back. Six plus pleasant miles. Great trail.

Good beginner hike. Only route open is to Johns meadow right now due to the Lake Fire. Steep incline up until about the johns meadow, jackstraw springs fork. Then sort of levels out with slight ups and downs. Occasionally there are opening that show the valley.

Hiked this trail with son and daughter to Anderson camp. Strenuous climb but worth the views. Big Bear lake and lights at night. Enchanting pine forest and flats at top. Carry 2L of water to be water in creek along trail. Spring is located at Dollar Lake / Angelus Camp fork signs (7 mi) from trailhead. Look down to right of trail fork located in bushes is a trickle spring. Filter water.

Hiked this hike today with a meet up group. It is a moderate ascent up to Anderson Flats and peak. We went over to Shields Peak. It was a rock scramble to the top. A lot of fun. Not something I do regularly. Out of my comfort zone but was easily overcome with the great company I was with. Most of the trail is shaded with pine needles underfoot or underboot! Quite a peaceful hike. The scenery is awesome. A nice way to get to San Bernardino Peak…Our hike was 4400 elev gain and 14miles

Me and my buddy did this trail up to Jackstraw Springs this morning with our dogs. Beautiful trail and moderate hike. Mostly shaded all the way up to the spring. Took us just over 2 hours to get up with some rests and just under an 1 1/2 hours down.

Went up about 5 miles to about 9500 ft elevation then went back down. I don't consider myself a pro hiker, but I also disagree with people calling this a difficult climb. It is a well marked trail and a moderate incline. A great little hike starting at 8 am in the middle of august with plenty of shade from tree canopies.
