Great conditioning hike. Especially in cooler temps. Gets crowded and lots of mountain bikers. Glad I started early. Doppler ball was worth the extra effort and time.

Wife and I did this hike...good training hike...beeks place was a good place to explore...a bit of history....topped off the hike with a packed lunch at the Doppler.

I didn’t do the full 11 mi. Just 5 miles round trip. But it was a pleasant experience.

completed 11 miles round trip. Not overly crowded and found parking easily. Need to get to the Doppler next time.

If you like walking uphill on a dusty dry dirt road with no shade to get a view of smoggy Corona, this is your hike.

Great trail jogged some parts walked all the way up the doppler ball. Its recommended to take enough water it will be needed . Great trail to do in Corona !

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.

easy out and back. the trail is essentially a dirt road with a steady climb. lots of bikes on the trail. nice views and overall a fun trail that is not strenuous and good for an easy trail run.

This hike kicked out butts. We didn't make it to the top because of the extreme heat and flies. One tip, at the Tin Canyon Trail head this trail is up the mountain. I'd like to tackle this one again starting earlier. We started at about 11:30 with the temperature reading on my phone at 88 but felt more like 95.
