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

Challenging and short! Perfect besides all the dust from sand but no biggie I have my dogs a good wash.

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.

Good hiking trail

It's a trail in the middle of Diamond Bar, on that scale I give it a 4/5. You are surrounded by houses for the most part, but a couple of the peaks offer some great views of the the San Bernardino mount Ian ranges. I'll come again for the quiet trek it offers and the ease of parking.

Up and down and all around the fun continues on. Great views from the top and it's worth the work to get there.

It was perfect for a post thanksgiving meal. Difficult at some parts but worth it because of the great views of downtown LA. Start of the trail is easy to find with plenty of parking!

Going up hill is pretty steep, but worth it for the workout!
