Pretty sweet trail with great views at the top and just along the trail itself. Only saw a few people on the way up which was pretty awesome. Only issue is there is definitely a lack of signage when trails cross and the last bit of the trail to the peak was a road. Definitely bring sunscreen as there isn't much for shade

Great hike. Lots of changing scenery in the canyon and plenty of exercise on the switchbacks up to the ridge. Really nice ridge walk until you hit the fire road and then a steady circling incline up to Josephine Peak. Beautiful views of Angeles. Will definitely be back to Colby to try Strawberry Peak.
