Just there today...my only pet peeve (no pun intended) is when people do not clean up after their dogs, worse yet is when people 'clean up after themselves' but leave the plastic bags in the weeds. Just kick the stuff to the curb and left nature do its thing!!!

Been hiking here the past 6 years. There are soooo many ways to go once you get here. To avoid the parking fiasco as well as the traffic hazard, you can actually park at the true start of Skyline located on Chase. across from the reservoir (see map). My favorite trail is to Tin Mine and the water where you will see snakes, red salamanders and frogs. You get there by continuing straight ahead past the information board. A second option is to do the conditioning hike up the fire road (continue to the right on the dirt road, to the doppler if you wish). A third option is to start at the pavement and rather than curve to your right, cross over the metal curbing and go straight. From there you can go in as far as you like...some pretty steep butt kickers or easy trails--your choice.

Decided to hike this one all the up to the "golfball" doppler radar. Although the temperature was up there it made for an awesome hike. The trail is immaculately maintained as always and the amount of trash left behind seems to have gone down as well. The difficulty of this trail is moderate. Where the danger lies is in the way you hike it. The lack of shade makes it a sure-fire way to get a heat stroke if you don't pack enough water. You should be good with about 130oz; that's what I packed anyway. Also, the slope is gentle but steady and the only time it levels out is at the ridgeline so be prepared. I love this trail though. On a clear day you can see the ocean once you're on top and Catalina Island.

Beautiful view of Corona.The trail is all up hill. Great training hill for athletes or if your looking for a challenging hill. Look out for bikers and runners.
