lovely hike, nice shaded trail once you are on the actual trail. Mild incline the whole way, can be rocky in some areas. Slippery rocks in or near the stream crossings. I liked this trail, it was pretty easy.

I loved it, i like hiking with my wife and 3 kids, 16,12 and 8. The hike was easy and the shade you get from the trees made it easier. The first mile or less is hot and no shade but then comes the kids favorite part the trees, the creek after the mine was the reward.

I have done this trail so many times.
This is one of the best and most scenic trails within 30 minutes from me. I have not only hiked this trail but I have also taken my downhill mtb and my trail bike on this trail, and both times were a complete blast.

Enjoyable hike/walk into the canyon with shady trees, stream, and the old mines. We scored about 4 empty water bottles of trash but mostly clean and light crowd. Parking is up on the street and starting point is very well marked off Foothill Canyon to start on Skyline Drive route and walk to Tin Canyon Trailhead.

This is a four-five star trail in the Spring when the creek is flowing and the flowers are blooming. Still a really enjoyable easy trail for early winter, but not nearly as ferngully-like. Love how close it is, yet secluded you feel once you pass the official trailhead. You can’t hear the cars on the road or see the city. It’s an easy and quick retreat. I did a more detailed review in March of 2017 if you want to check it out.

Parking on main road, clearly marked for Skyline Dr., but can be a bit of a distance. 1st bit is paved walking path, then wide hard pack dirt before you get to the good stuff at the Tin Mine Canyon cutoff, which is very clearly marked with large signs. From here the trail end is 1.25 miles, but you can go further. At least 3 mine shafts. LOTS of fresh poison oak near and on the trail (dry December) and some creek crossings (mostly dry or a dribble).

Very cool nature trail that ventures into the Corona hills. You can see an entrance to an old tin mine, lots of beautiful oak trees, and an active stream if you hike far enough in. We will definitely hike this one again!

Easy hike . Couple benches on the way for rest or snack breaks. An old closed down mine entrance. Easy for kids or dogs. If hiking this trail in the evening take a flashlight, it’s gets really dark with the canyon walls and trees blocking light in.

Excellent trail! Narrow, packed-dirt most of the way, feels very secluded because of the canyon walls. Rapidly changing scenery and plant life. Parking is well-marked (on the shoulder of Foothill Pkwy), although I still took 10 minutes to find it! There's a 'Trail End' marker, but you can go well past it, but the terrain gets trickier. I wonder how far it keeps going...

Great, easy trail if you're looking for some shade and cool in the summer time. Two hours worth of work out enjoying the great outdoors.

Be aware of poison oak throughout the trail. Wear long pants and long sleeves.

Beautiful place! I'd definitely go back. Lots of shade. Highly recommended. Oh, but be careful with poison oak...it's everywhere!!

Nice easy hike through the canyon. Seeing the old mine and all the wild flowers was pretty cool.
