First time here at Steep Canyon Trail and it was definitely a fun one! Took about an hour to finish and it's less than 2 miles long, just some steep hills you have to look out for since there's a lot of loose gravel around.. but that's what makes it challenging. Also found a cut in-half 50s chevy business coupe convertible near the near of the trail. Pretty random how it got there. I would definitely come back to this trail if I ever need to kick my ass with the cardio!!

I love this hike! My daughter and I did this every other day in the morning. Wear plenty of sunscreen bring enough water and take in all the beauty around.

This hike has no shade so make sure u are well covered, sunscreen, and water. I’m a beginner so the steep was a work out for me. Lots of up and down. There are 3 route you can choose from. One of the trail leads to Diamond Bar community center. I liked it! It’s a good work out, but pick hiking time wisely.

Very nice trail. Great informative signs and markers. Was easy to moderate. Lots of geocaching available along the way but I only was able to find one today.

Loved it!! Such a great and kind of quick hike. Perfect for a quick 30-minute/45-minute workout before work or any plans!!
The hills really get to you but the view is worth it all.
I’ll be back forsure!

Great workout! There’s a pretty view of the homes in that area. There’s lookout benches along the entire trail. It may be challenging for anyone with knee issues. It’s just as steep going down as it is going up

This trail is much the same like many in the area. Good views and exercise.

I highly recommend it for people who want to challenge their elevation gain as it is a very steep incline. Hence the name.

like other reviews, it is quick close to residential area. But the view is stunning. Nt a long hiking, about an hr hiking for a cycle.

good little trail it's not long but it has ups and downs for a good workout and a good scenery

Good hike, but for the scenery you're surrounded by houses. Steep hills which is great for a workout. But I typically like to have better scenery that I can get lost in! Good for something quick and local!

Really pretty scenery, the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because there was some landscaping when I went and it sort of killed the vibe of enjoying the hike. It's also really close to houses so you will be seeing houses for the first half of the hike. It is an easy hike if your just trying to take it easy.
