this was a good hike, my legs were definitely burning, but it is private property (didn't know that) so the cops came and told us we had to leave, luckily we were heading down already. needless to say we won't be doing this hike again.

Really cool great work out for legs pay attention to trial you went on could forget trail easily :)

Beautiful views, not a hard trail to hike. the only fault we have is the trail makers, no where in the park. For first time coming it was hard to find the right trail to hike the loop. (not sure we even did the loop)

I did this hike and got terrible poison ivy I had to take steroid to get rid of it worst experience ever actually has prevented me from hiking again would not recommend it at all

great options here to take the easier trail the long way around, or a harder hike straight up to the top. lots of great rock formations and narrow trails to explore.

I would suggest taking the boring fire road on the way up. That way on the way down you hit the trail that's a little more scenic.

Good, short hike. The trail does get steep at certain parts which may be difficult for some. There is no tree coverage so I wouldn't recommend this hike on a warm or hot day.

Not sure if we went the right way but this hike took me 3 hours to complete. Maybe because I'm 6'1 300 lbs with 3 small kids but we finished it and felt great to accomplish it. I can't wait for the next trail need to get more prepared though...

Took my time to Familiarize this trail.

Great hike, gets difficult at times. Definitely more challenging than I thought it would be. We had my 18 month old with us and definitely had to carry her once the trail narrows. I Felt like a mountain goat

Good incline, challenging for kids towards the end, single wide track, has a couple trailheads depending on where you want to start. Trail just dissolved once over the peak. No defined way to continue down into creek, Best to return back to Parking lot once at peak.

Good bike trails. Nice for a simple walk to get away from things.

Rode my mountain bike up here. A little hard at times but worth it. Pretty view.

Fun and challenging for those who don’t hike often. Going to try it with the kids but will turn around at the flag to avoid the more difficult terrain

The trailhead that starts at the no trespassing gate is definitely the best place to start. It is an easy/moderate hike on a nice 15 foot wide maintained dirt road until the double power towers. A sharp right turn by the right tower onto a single wide, non maintained climb turns moderate incline. Once at the flag, the steep downhill to complete the loop quickly becomes difficult. Deep ruts, loose rocks, sand on sandstone, steep drop offs... maybe it was extra challenging because I was carrying my sleeping 2 year old through that. It took about 3 hours with plenty of breaks hauling kids.

This hike was definetly a workout. I hike maybe once a month and exercise never, I'd say this hike is moderate to hard. We parked facing south on Highland Springs and crossed the road towards the no trasspassing signs and went under a red railed gate. We went left at the fork and once you reach the two towers you continue the trail by going towards the right tower, the trail is a sharp, narrow trail at this point. We passed the small edison sign/pipe on the ground and spotted the flag at a distance. Once we reached the flag we went down the wrong path, were it was eroded and very steep, but later found the trail. But the trail was still eroded, steep and slippery. I would recommend turning around and going back down the way you came up if you don't have hiking shoes. I was definetly scooting on my butt a couple times. Other than the sketchy trail downhill it was a great hike with good views. Bring water and a hat! It was 2.7miles from the car and took us 1 hour 30min to complete, but we took a detour and were going at a slow/normal pace (short legs here).

A great adventure! We were looking for the flag the whole time and finally spotted it. Was much smaller than we were expecting. The key to finding the flag trail is taking the initial trail to the left (yes through the no trespassing signs) when you get to the power line, there is a sharp turn to
the right at the bottom of the tower and the trail is no longer a fire road. This is the hair pin turn you see on the trail map. Follow the skinny trail back toward the beginning but you will go up the hill still. Going down the last 1/4 of the way is steep, slippery & rocky but super fun to navigate (sometimes in your butt).

I took the trail to the left, but I never found the flag or the top of the hill. I went a few miles and the path dead ended. It was still nice, but not the hike I was looking for.

Absolutely beautiful. pet friendly. peaceful.

Can someone please tell me how to get to the trail. I went today and there was no trespassing signs all over. I want to go on this trail but don't want a ticket. If someone could kindly email me please f_maria34@hotmail.com

Back road to the top was a nice hike. Coming down the front side was steep initially and gradually became a manageable decline. Lots of fun

This is an awesome park. Great for hiking, fishing as there is a pond, horse backing riding, picnicking, playground equipment for kids, camping area and more. The park is hardly used and for the low day use fee of $10 it is very affordable for people and families. The sad thing is this park could go away in the near future as it desperately needs people to use it to generate income to maintain the park. We ran into a local man who grew up in the area and said how vibrant the area was and how the locals are trying to start a petition to save the park. People get out to this park and help save it for future generations!

Beware of rattle snakes! We never saw any (good thing!) but they made their presence known with their distinctive rattle.

The area was really nice!! There are several different trails that you can take that go for miles and miles. The campground is well cared for and there are corrals for the campers horses. When you first arrive in the park there is a cool little lake and recreation area. The route we took ran beside a stream and was mostly shaded. We parked the car outside of the actual park because the gate was locked and we walked in about a mile or so until we hit the trail near the equestrian area. I recommend heading over to check it out. I'll be back to explore the area again for sure!

Go here every day to ride my bike. Definitely not the best but it is enjoyable with family and friends. Decent wildlife activity. Usually is dusty with loam all year till it rains then the trails are perfect. Would recommend taking kids up tractor hill to see all of cherry valley, Beaumont, and a little bit of banning. Mellow in some places and overgrown in others. Tons and tons of poison oak so be careful and make sure you are knowledgeable enough to spot it out and avoid it. Love this park

The scenery is great ! Once you're at the top you can see the whole town filled with it's beautiful mountains ! There's a lot of dead plants that's the only downside, but the hike itself is a workout !
