this hike was pretty much a Fire Road the whole way and not a lot of shade until you get into the tunnels but the up and back was almost 7 miles but very peaceful

this hike was pretty much a fire Road the whole way steady incline but not real steep not a lot of shade until you get into the tunnels and the views are pretty good but this hike was just under 7 miles round trip

this hike was a fire road all the way up to the second tunnel a gradual incline and not a lot of visual around and the trip was 7 Mi round trip not five like this app says but it was a fun hike none the less

it's a great trail, but I doubt they're going to reopen it again.

As of July 2018, there are permanent-looking signs saying the trail is temporarily closed. :-(

fishing
2 months ago

Some good trout fishing along the river, used my mountain bike to ride alongside the river. Main trail is mostly asphalt, great for hiking, biking, and nature walks. There’s a lot of people hiking the first 3-5 miles, afterwards there are very few people, mostly with bikes. I would recommend bringing a buddy or two if your planning to hike/bike the trail deeper due to bears around that area.

I went here today 5/26/2018. This is the best day to go because it was cloudy, I won't recommend to go during summer time unless, to be there really early before the sun hits.There's no shade at all-not until you reach the first tunnel. We did about 3 hours. 2hrs going up and 1hr going down. Beautiful scenery,very interesting tunnels even more the history of it. It was mostly flat but some downhill and steep climbs. I would love to explore more of the San Gabriel Mountains I would like to go farther until I reach the bridge to nowhere. Until the next hiking. ☺

It's a bit of a drive up the 39 to get here, but it's quite scenic. If you are driving north there is a picnic area and a lot on the left, right past the bridge. There is a pretty nice swimming area right below the parking lot. I only made it about a mile up the trail. There is a paved rode at least that far. The river runs right next to it, and in May it was still flowing well. Really nice place to spend a day. Don't forget your Adventure Pass, the rangers will ticket!

This was a great short hike. It was raining in Azusa today but fortunately when we got to the trailhead it stopped raining. It's uphill most of the time but still pretty easy. The tunnels are so interesting but extremely dark so make sure you have a headlight or flashlight. It was also very lonely so I would recommend going in a group just as a precaution. Don't forget a parking pass!

Hope they re open it
Great hike!

Hot bring lots of water leave early. Uphill most of the way to the tunnels great hike also sunscreen is a must

Beautiful views & one of the quieter places to hike in L.A. without hoardes of people, road noise, or litter. The people we did encounter were very friendly. We went early March after a dry winter so the grass & flowers are just getting their heads out.

Great hike. Very few people use this trail during the week, so it's very peaceful. The tunnels are cool and make this hike different than other Southern California hikes. Trail is good condition. Lots of beautiful scenery. I would definitely recommend this hike.

I have done this entire bike path only once so far but travel El Dorado Park to Seal Beach & back quite regularly. Nice ride to do during the day and preferably with another person or people. The entire path (road) is in great overall condition. Most riders have courtesy and know the rules of the road. My only issues are some sketchy areas (Pico Rivera... for one) where graffiti, urine stench, homeless, and/or undesirables frequent. Overall though, it's a beautiful path.

On the pleasant side, I've seen a coyote, large sea turtles, egrets, blue heron, red-winged blackbirds, 4' to 5'long snake, many rabbits on the path over the past few years.

I followed a trail that continued way past the tunnels. I turned back at 3.2 miles from the gate, but interested in where it leads. Would also like to hike Rattlesnake Peak.

It was 80 degrees and beautiful. It must be miserable in the summer.

Used to run this trail for the Azusa Boxing Club, too bad it’s closed and still closed it’s a killer run

great trail but chilly pack warm clothes

Hiked this trail on a partly cloudy weekend afternoon. Nice views. Not a lot of people. Bring some water as it is an incline at times. Really rocky bring sturdy comfortable shoes. Bring a flashlight as the inside of the tunnels are really dark and u need a good flashlight to check out the art and for a sense of comfort as I kept clutching my flashlight hoping the boogeyman wouldn’t jump out to get me haha. I somehow thought this trail would lead to the bridge to nowhere but it only lead to the tunnels to nowhere. Super cool experience though.

Nice trail. Very easy. Pet friendly. There are rattlesnakes so be careful when walking in the evening. Great for bike rides.

Note: The elevation gain listed on this page appears to be way off. I extended this hike by 1.1 miles and only recorded 1,762 feet gain with the AllTrails app.

Despite its uneventful destination, this hike offers great views of Mt. Baldy, Iron Mountain, and other nearby peaks. There's no shade other than the two tunnels, so bring a hat and at least 1 litter of water if you come on a hot day.

great bike ride

Been hiking for years. I always come to this trail whenever I make the trip back home.

Anyone knows when they are going to reopen it?
