I've been up here a couple of times times now and I really enjoy it. There seems to be trails for every skill level and the scenery and views are absolutely beautiful.

Yesterday was my first time on this trail and I wasn't impressed by it. The time it took to get up there I could have went to a better location. In some spots the view was beautiful but those spots were two far in between, in my opinion.

came from the 58 freeway I was confused at first because it didn't look like a trail, it looked like a dirt road with bunch of privet properties gates so just keep going you will find yourself high up in the forest before you know it.

Would be very nice in the spring. However, if you are planning to go during the summer prepare for being in direct sunlight for a few hours as there is not much shade through much of the trail. Has a few large rest areas with drinkable water and bathrooms but the gazebos are largely filled with either rats or wasp nests. Fairly clean although there is the occasional bit of litter and it seams people have been nocking over the few rock cairns that were set up. Over all it's an ok hike. Head up to the reflection pond at the far end if you want to make things a little more difficult, it's a gamble if there is even water in there during the summer.

Haven't concurred the whole thing yet but I've been dreaming about it for months. It's just too hot out there. It was absolutely gorgeous when I went last in March, I'm waiting for it to cool down a bit before I do it again.

I go here all the time since it's so close to my house. Obviously much greener in the spring but still a good workout even though it's yellow this time of year.

did this in the dark as we got a late start. This is easy dirt road with a few minor obstacles. The whole road can be driven with car and some care. We traveled the whole length moving slowly avg 15 mph All the way to the 155 connection. It was a great trip and the first one on a used 4 wheel drive i had just bought. So we were gambling on a breakdown on a road I had never been on , but with the great info available here on ALLTRAILS we had a great adventure. Recommend this road for pleasant day or night trip

Nice and easy. Beautiful views.
