5/1/2021. Started our hike at 730am and made it to the trestle at 1045am. Returned at 230pm. Before Tunnel 5 you can make a left, gain a bit of elevation, and hike directly over the tunnel. Or a 100 yards before tunnel 5, you can make a right and take the easier but longer route. Gear and temperature: 3.5 liters of water per person, snacks, mirrorless camera, hat, and sunscreen. Cool low 60s in the morning to low 80s towards the end of the hike. Shorts and a t shirt. The hike: Long 16 mile mostly flat hike. Interesting rail cars and derailments on the hill slopes. Tall tunnels and one which was about half a mile long that we needed to utilized our headlamps for. Fun hike and worth it but I would not do it again. Something fun to do once.

This was an awesome hike! I was here on Saturday, April 24. I parked at DeAnza Springs Resort, paid $5 per person, started the hike at 9am and got back to the resort at 5:30pm. It was a nice, warm day, not hot, and windy. We were alone throughout the hike. The lady at the front office was very nice and welcoming. The first tunnel and the 3rd tunnel are still closed. For the first tunnel, you can go to the left or right to go around. We took the trail to the right and it was longer. I recommend you take the left side instead. For the 3rd tunnel, there's a trail to the left that is extremely obvious. You should be good there. Other than that, enjoy the hike! It's a must do!

I loved this trail. It is a very long but enjoyable hike. I hope people will bring a trash bag rather than spray paint and clean up rather than vandalize the train cars.

Trail is overcrowded. Trash and plastics are beginning to pile up along the tracks. No respect for these beautiful lands. I hope the railroad company bans the public so it can be preserved.

Awesome hike. Suggest starting at sunrise as you are able to find parking and most of the way into the trestle is all shaded. Its a little long distance of a hike but I found it to be fun and entertaining as there is lots of abandoned train cars and great hiking views. The peace and tranquillity you get out there is awesome. Once I reached the trestle, I was all alone which made it neat to be in the presence of a man made work of art that has lasted almost 100 years. Took about an hour to take pictures and have some food. Coming back out it was hot as expected but the weather was around 67 and breezy. Definitely recommend doing it.

Was a fun trail. Just want to remind hikers, although not high elevation, it’s a long hike and should be prepared with food and water, even electrolytes. It was in the low 60’s and no shade most of hike unless in tunnels, and someone had heat exhaustion, passed out. Be prepared as there is no phone reception. Be safe and have fun

HikingGreat!

Excellent hike with great views. As others have mentioned, the distance is what makes the hike hard. The crossover at one tunnel was kind of hairy since the trail is along a very steep slope and is almost washed out in some areas.

Trail was fairly decent but unfortunately there is a constant swarm of people there and the trash is accumulating along with vehicles strewn across the side of the road. This place is gonna get shut down by the locals if we continue to litter along the trails.
