Top section from Laguna campground, mile marker 22.5 off Sunrise Hwy, is unreal. Los Gatos trail is super fun. Noble canyon is a butt kicker!

We only walked in for about 4 miles but it was all downhill so prepare for the way back to be all uphill! Lots of mountain bikers which was a little much for us but the variety of landscape kept us happy. Looking forward to coming back and trying the whole thing!

Trail is incredible, definitely better than I am (on MTB). Don't go in July! Had 3 Liters each, still ran out of water on the round trip.

The trail isn't too difficult, but it definitely isn't easy. Rocky with a steady climb on the south end. Lots of mtn bikers, not many hikers. It was more high desert terrain & it was hot! I'd love to do this trail again, but it's on my fall/winter/spring to-do list rather than summer.

The continuous stream of idiots on mountain bikes going down hill and taking blind turns at 40mph really detracts from the experience. With that said don't expect to see much in the way of wildlife.

We got a late start on a Monday night so we weren't able to hike the full trail. We made camp about 3 or so miles from the Pine Valley trailhead. The trail is diverse and was better than we expected. There is tree coverage in certain areas but other sections are open. It got pretty warm on our way back to the car but we were lucky to have a cool breeze. We plan to bring friends out as an intro to backpacking since this one is so easy to get to and not too strenuous.
