Great trail leads to great view. It is open and you do need to pay $10 per person. Bring some type of netting or bug repellent. There were so many flys and little bugs flying around.

Just completed this trail on Sunday & it is open. Keep in mind, this is a private trail on the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation and there is $10 per person fee. Once inside, you will follow the road till you get to the campground and the trailhead (on left side) is near the restrooms. The first 2.5 miles is full exposed sun, uphill. It’s a quad burner for sure but then it levels out to a more manageable climb the rest of the way to top. Plus, it gets more forest as you ascend. I will say, the bugs, particularly the horse flies were relentless from the start of the trail to the top. I think I have about 15 bite marks so be prepared! Beautiful views at top!

Trail head a little hard to find. Great trail with only 2 people on it the whole time! Nice varied landscape. Lots of bugs at times but manageable. Trail is open as of 5-22-20

Had a beautiful hike in freshly fallen snow. The snow cover started about a half mile from the parking lot and gradually increased in depth to 10-12" over the last two miles to the summit. This made for slow hiking, so allow extra time, and its best to have waterproof boots for the many slushy areas. Poles and microspikes also helpful for the steeper trail sections. No ice, but fresh snow over old slush could get slippery in spots.

I've checked the weather conditions for this hike for two weeks and my patience was rewarded. Cloudy with chance of sunshine but windy as hell. Getting the is easy but long. Pay the guard $10 like Alltrails says. Then the paved road continues for about mile then the last couple thousand yards it turn into dirt but trailhead is real close. The trail was in good and dry condition until I reached the last mile or two towards the peak; gale winds were blowing the snow melt off the trees, looking like raining icicles causing the trail to be muddy in some parts. Despite the cloudy and icy windy conditions, breaks in the clouds allowed for a glorious sunshine and partial views of the Palomar Mountains, Mt. San Jacinto, and Anzo-Borrego Desert. I will definitely return here again during clear conditions next time.

Awesome hike! Beautiful views when we weren't shrouded in clouds. like everyone says very steep the first 2 miles but then flattens and rolls until the summit which is a fun scramble through the woods. Just note, it's pretty remote so basically zero cell service. Made it in a little under 4.5 hours at a good pace. Would definitely do again and recommend!

I'm usually not a fan of hiking on fire roads, but once you get in the trees and towards the peak, it was actually really pretty! The first 2 miles are so are uphill, but then it levels out and isn't so bad. The actual peak is not the lookout, but follow the road across the open dirt area and you'll see the pink markers on the trees. Follow that to the peak, which is actually a big rock. There is a ladder on one side you can climb up fairly easy, or use the ropes you see when you first get there. There were a couple patches of snow on the sides of the trail, so with upcoming storms, there might be more snow. Overall, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it despite it being a road. $10 per person at the guard shack (tribal police). 3.7.20

Nice walk on a truck trail, not much of elevation gain. We started at about 6:30 am, perfect for a trail like this one without shade. It was windy which feel so good on the way back. 2.29.20
