Nice loop hike with some good views and not a ton of people and plenty of parking (arrived at 8:30 am on a Sunday). I would definitely recommend turning left (clockwise) to start off the hike, even though I went right (counterclockwise). Going clockwise will give you more shade towards the end of the hike when it’s hotter. The path does have a lot of loose stones/rocks in some areas so make sure to watch your step.

Awesome trail. This time of year, the spring flowers were still all blooming at the lower altitude. The views from the top were spectacular in all directions. The trail is very rocky so sturdy shoes a must and per another review, some of these were more strenuous than moderate. Then again - I am 56 but my 22 year old sons thought it was easy.

Snow capped mountains and crystal clear Pacific Ocean in the same breath! This is my new favorite hike in So Cal and I’ll be going back!

this trail is moderate to hard. it takes a while to complete. there are several areas that you have to climb over rocks. you can continue from split rock to loop around the mountain if u want just keep right at the split rock. there isn't much shade after split rock but there are some very good views from peaks. take lots of water.

I actually did this as part of the loop trail to Sandstone Peak; the trail has a portion of well shaded areas especially as you get near split rock. At the rock location you actually have a well-shaded picnic table which is great for a short snack and watching others enjoy the rock. I love the Mishe Mokwa Trail for its many different rock formations and this trail definantly doesn't disappoint.
