This trail is very difficult, but the views are great! Mt. Baldy and San G are visible for essentially the entire hike. The peak itself offers great views of Baldy and Chino Hills SP. You will need hiking shoes with good grip and poles, as the grade approaches 45% on the way to the summit (with loose dirt and rock on the trail).

Not fun, unless you’re looking for a challenge! Absolutely no shade, so go first thing in the morning. The trail is ok until about 2.5 miles in, then in becomes overgrown. 3 miles in it’s almost non-existent. Wear long pants and sleeves because the trail is overgrown as well. You’ll gain 2000’ of elevation in the first 2.5 miles, so it’s a good challenge if you like that kind of stuff! Views are good as long as there’s no smog...

First part of the trail is right next to a residential area. Wide, and easy but so closed to people’s houses that I could smell what they were cooking in the kitchen. After that, at least 50% “Bad” trail condition for the rest of the steep uphill to the top! Not well maintained, washed out, rocky, and not safe due to loose soil. Steep, but it should be piece of cake for us if the trail is in better condition. View at the top was nice but my socks are still on. We hiked all SoCal 6 packs, did Whitney One Day so we’ve seen a lot more impressive views. Bring your hiking poles and mole skin. So many better hikes around and definitely will not come back to this one.

I did this trail from fresno Canyons to the peak at The Sierra 3.3 miles to the top hard climbing as you get up to the top and partly no shade. You will be able to get on the road for another 2.5 miles and take that to The Beek’s Place near the white Doubler of Skyline Canyon. We went down to skyline it’s all downhill from there to the entrance a total miles I clock in at 11 miles. Bring lost of water and freeze them if possibly, you will need it

Great hike, definitely hard. The trailhead on Green River Road is closed due to the pandemic, but that part is more of a neighborhood route anyway. You can pick up the trail just up the street on Oakridge Drive. As a couple of other commenters have said, bring poles. With them it’s challenging but doable. Without them it would be dangerous. Not saying it’s impossible, but the trail is steep in sections with loose rocks.

Now this is what I’m talking about! This hike will surely test any advanced adventurer. From Sierra Peak, I could see all the way from San Bernardino to Catalina Island. Some insane views without a doubt. Past a certain point, the freeways were inaudible, making it seem extra away from society. LOTS to explore: abandoned radio tower, other nearby peaks, abandoned truck, and I was able to spot what looked like an abandoned mine shaft tucked away in a canyon. However, take caution. I wouldn’t do this without hiking boots due to the sheer declines on the way down. Even with boots I nearly hurt my ankle coming down. A windbreaker is highly recommended, it’s frigid at the top. Also, I spotted what seemed to be mountain lion stool on parts of the trail, so I would be extra vigilant when hiking early in the morning or around dusk. I’m definitely coming back soon with a friend with a pack full of food and water and exploring the surrounding area.

This hike was gnarly, the first half is more of a climb. The way back goes fast downhill but it's easy to slip on loose rocks and a few muddy parts.

There's no shade in this trail so bring wide brim hat. Lots section of trail is loose soil and gravel on steep slopes so good lug soles shoes and trekking poles are essential.

First to Review

Stopped half way since a party member didn't have proper shoes. Sticks and hiking shoes are a must to get past the half way point due to steepness and very loose rocks. Views were nice, definitely revisiting in spring.
