Started this trail at 9 AM. The first mile is fairly flat with a little water that needed to be crossed. The next 4 miles were a mixture of moderate-hard climbs. Once at the top we returned the way we came until we got to the Murrietta trail. It took some finding to even spot where the trail connected with the road. We bushwacked through the trail as best as we could. This is a trail in name only. There is a significant route finding that is needed to find your way to the trail camp. Once at the camp the trail is managable with still frequent blow downs and trail work needed. At the road you make a quick right and are back at your car fairly quickly.

The lower part of this trail was completely destroyed by the recent fires and flooding. Make sure to use the upper trail if you’re going to attempt it on a mountain bike.

We really like this hike. Took my parents on it( who are in their 70s). They're in great shape but still have to be cautious and had no problems. Lots of poison oak and poison ivy. Frequently encountered overgrown sections of trail. Recommend wearing pants. Trail is overgrown in places. Camp site has 3 iron grates/ rings for cooking. Great site for hammocks. Easy trail for all ages.
