We must have looked like flowers to the bees... got chased twice. The hike was a bit strenuous (the entire trail being an uphill battle) and the summer heat unfortunately did not make it much easier! The path was clearly defined and there weren't many people on the trail. I would definitely recommend doing this hike in cooler weather since there is very little shade except for the very beginning. If you enjoy hiking, try out this trail for a small challenge. The view on the top of the mountain isn't anything extraordinary, but it sure is a pretty view!

Very good workout. Should be labeled hard not moderate. The incline on this trail begins immediately and continues to become even more steep. Take caution near the bee hives. There is some shade in the beginning but not much after that. I absolutely loved this hike!

Sunrise hikes here are the best! It's not a super intense hike, but still a really good workout. Make sure to take mosquito repellent!

This is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the foothills. The trail from Mt. Baldy road offers two paths to the top. One offers a slow incline with more shade and trees while the other is a straight hike up the side of the mountain ( I prefer the hike up the side of the mountain). Definitely worth the hike just be prepared for crowds of people on the weekends!!
