Nice hike. Dog friendly. A little steeper in parts than I expected, but a good work out.

This Is a great little place to take your kids. I took my son and he was amazed by the huge pumpkin! I do suggest for the little ones a hat and some sunblock. The only shade that’s there if from the rock which is at the top!

Easy, little bit steep at certain parts of the trail but cool view once you get to the top. Be careful with glass that’s up near the pumpkin!

The trail itself is boring, but worth it for the photo op with the huge pumpkin

Super easy, short but steep! I brought my little dogs and had to pick them up near the end because a coyote was dangerously near. Luckily two people on horses scared it off for me. I didn't expect to see a coyote at 1:40 in the afternoon but I did and probably won't bring the little ones again by myself because it was a scary situation.

Great intro hike! Steep in some places. Definitely not stroller friendly, but great for kids who can walk!

There are many different trails that go up to the rock. Some are more of an incline than others. I definitely recommend that you wear shoes that have good tread because it’s so easy to slip.

Great trail. A little steep, but short with a nice pumpkin at the top as a reward.

Easy hike in the Norco Hills - great for beginners with great views of the landscapes to the west. Once parked at the trailhead there area a number of shortcuts straight up to Pumpkin Rock, but the trail the winds through the bottom through the neighboring houses and up through the backside of Pumpkin Rock is well worth it. It took about an hour total not including some rest time to take in the views and some photos. Good hike if you want to bring along kids, just be cautious as the way up can sometimes be slippery on the dirt.
