Easy nature walk trail. Perfect for my senior dog with hip issues. A few small trees are down over the trail and some spots are pretty rocky, so may not be the best fit for someone who isn’t sure-footed. We went on a Monday late afternoon and only saw a couple of people. Biggest drawback is that it is right along the highway, so there is a lot of street noise. Overall, great little walking trail.

Great hike done with kids. Lots of shade and was still warm. Needs some maintenance but trail was still easily located. Would do again when in the area.

Beautiful and easy trail. Brought the dog on leash. It was a warm day and lots of flies at the lookout point only. Otherwise, it was mostly shaded, wildflowers, and lovely. Parked across the street on the side of the road.

This trail deserves a 5 for several reasons. I needed to escape the 100° temperate of the Inland Empire and it was 20° cooler in the mountains. Factor in lots of shade with lots of sunny patches and I was thrilled. It is not a very challenging hike so it was perfect for my son with low muscle tone. He had a great time picking up pine cones and throwing them into the forest. Loved all of the wildflowers as well. We did not do the last .1 mile because my son decided he had “had it” and flipped on the ground. Trying to coax a 70lbs child to do your will was not a battle for today. The only downside is parking. There was perhaps room for two cars on a roadside turnout across the street. We only saw one other group of people.

Parked along the street. Kid friendly but keep them close, we saw a big coyote. Went on a Tuesday at 9am and saw 0 other people on the trail. Some bugs but not too bad. Sun and shade in the morning with a great view.

Nice short easy loop. The split to the right looks like an old road and is easy to follow. Where the trail joins together to the lookout point, it has lots of loose rocks and thorns crowd the trail, but was easy enough to get through. When you get to the end you can see another lookout point below lookout below that must be part of another trail. Going back and taking the other fork, there are some turns you can miss and it’s was a bit overgrown, but nothing to hard to navigate.

This is a nice hike, beautiful trees and not challenging. But we were unable to find a trail down to the lookout point. The trail takes you to a lovely viewpoint, and you can *see* the lookout spot below. But there was no way to get down there (and we backtracked a few times trying to find a trail or path, to no avail. The trail is poorly marked, physically, so no help there, either. All in all, a nice hike, but you cannot actually get to the lookout.

Snow was a good foot deep which made for an extra workout but it is well worth it. Great views over the valley and no one else on the trail. Was a bit hard to follow the trail being covered in snow and all but no problem with the app.

Easy hike with a good view to top it off. Parking is a little weird but it’s a good warm up trail. Nothing to crazy

Park in the large turnout on the north side of highway 18 About a 1/4 mile west of of Rim Forest. Go past the gate and find the trail to the left. There are several old growth pines that are amazing.

Nice trail, it has orange tape up I believe due to fallen trees? We still went through, it was beautiful. Didn’t know where to park so just parked right up to the tape. Easy trail with a beautiful view. We went late and walked back when it was dark, it was a bit hard to stay on trail but this app makes it easy. Worth it!

Short and easy. Parking closed so have to park on side of the road.
