North trailhead: From North Palm Canyon Drive, turn west at Vista Chino; turn right on Via Norte; turn left on Chino Canyon Road; turn left on Panorama Road; turn left on Cielo Drive; turn left on an unmarked roadway. The trailhead is unnamed but marked with a sign asking hikers to stay on the established trails. South trailhead: Take East Ramon Road to its end. The trailhead is marked at the entrance to a preambulatory. At the base of the rise, follow the left ascent. (The right ascent comes to a dead end within a half mile.)

Beautiful hike, with amazing views. Easy to maneuver trail, and did not disappoint with plenty of big horn sheep.

Park on the side of the road where Ramon dead ends. There is a sign by the trailhead to the left, if you follow what looks to be the trail going up towards the right you will not be on the trail! Made that mistake the first time. Pretty steep trail but the view of the city is worth it. You know you've reached the top when you get to the picnic tables. took 1 human and 1 tiny dog 2 hours to complete with plenty of breaks. I wouldn't recommend during the day in the summer as there is zero shade. I would definitely check this one out if you get a chance.

Ran this one way from the north and had a hard time finding the trailhead, it's a pretty steep climb to start from that end. But it's a great, challenging 2-mile trail with incredible views of the valley along the way. I'll probably bring the crew back tomorrow for a more leisurely hike ;)
