Nice, easy walk. The end gets a little confusing but once you hit the boat dock its a great view!

Great trail with increasingly better views. Very easy to get to, the directions from the All Trails lead you right up to the trail head start. Note: If you have a regular, unmodified car park it at the picnic tables you see as you turn in from the 138. There is also a smaller parking spot with a portable toilet a little bit farther down the road, you will have to drive on a sketchy part of road for a little to get to it though.
The entrance to the actual trail with be marked with a small green and white sign that says "MILLER CANYON" along with an elevation marker that says N237 and N238.

I did the full 9.8 miles and it was worth every second. Once we got to the end of the trail the overlook was worth the knee pain. The trail also goes from paved to dirt off and on, increasing gradually with the elevation. I went on a Monday and only saw one car parked there total, really peaceful views.

Good hike up the valley, but less than stellar as it is a forest road. Would be a fun, easy atv ride. Elevation is sharper forwards the end which makes a tough up, but fun run down.

Ok, this trail was fun, I went on the both sides, since the main trail was CLOSED FOR WINTER! Both ways I went were cool, it would've been nice to know it was next to the State prison I was alone with my Chihuahua, it being chilly & quite was creepy!! All in all gorgeous scenery ✌️

trail running
Wednesday, February 20, 2013

keep in mind there is no parking lots for the hike like there is for most hiking spots. we parked a lil off the trail next to an electrical tower to avoid getting stuck. there's lots of loose sand and mud around there so be careful. this is all prior to getting to the fork in the road. the left is the route we took to go for a lil 4.5 mile run. route 2**37. to the right is route 2***38. sorry I can't remember the exact numbers but you'll see the signs. the run wasn't too bad. some parts further up get steep so it slowed us down. the whole trail wasn't as rocky as I thought it would be. more mud than anything. once at the top you can see where the trail splits again. also you'll see more electrical towers and a nice view of the whole mountain. I posted pics of signs and the map route we took. all in all it was fun and different. I don't recommend cars without 4x4. thanks for reading.

off road driving

We staged off the 138 Highway above Silverwood Lake at the Pilot Rock Conservatory we rode our CRF450's up to Devils Hole via Millers Canyon. The ride thru Millers Canyon is a scenic tree lined trail with water crossings all the way towards grass valley. If you are riding on a dirt bike you will want to jump on the single track trails right before you get to the water treatment plant. The single track trails are technical with lots of hill climbs. Head toward the Pinnacles Staging Area. From the Pinnacles you will head out the trail head on the left which will take you thru a series of hill climbs and decents to a large rocky water crossing . Turn left at lost ranch sign up to the Forestry sign that shows the map to Devils Hole. Once you reach the road down into the valley were Devils Hole is at you will go down a steep trail for about a mile. Once you reach Devils Hole there is a Lake that goes down stream for as far a the eye can see. Tree lined banks to relax and chill out in the shade. There is fishing allowed and wild trout to catch. This trail if for motorcycles and four wheel drive vehicles.Round trip from Silverwood it is about 39 miles. Best Ride on a dirt bike in the San Bernardino Mountains guarnteed.
