Great hike! Bring lots of water. My dog loved it too!

I really enjoyed this hike with my wife. There is tree coverage in certain parts of the trail as well. We started the hike past the golf course where there is a dirt parking lot at the end of the road. It's an easy hike.

Good quick workout with a great view

Easy - wide open trail. Very dog friendly. there are plenty of stops with shade from overhanging trees.

Be on the lookout for rattlesnakes - they are out and about, even in the winter. I saw one slither away, while letting my pup roam for a place to use the restroom.

I liked this trail.
Cons:
Some exposed areas could be super hot in summer.
A lot of people/not a walk for solitude.
Bikes zoom down the path, listen for bike warnings.
When the turnouts are full it can be hard to park.
Not long enough to be a day hike.
Pros:
Pretty trees and rocks along the shaded areas.
Great uphill cardio.
Wide walking path that feels stable (some slightly loose sandy areas)
A lot of people so you feel safe.
Short enough to get a good morning workout and still have your day left ahead of you.
The view at the top is panoramic.
You feel accomplished when you reach the top.

Bring your adventure pass for parking and lots of water.

Great for cardio work out...

Got there early! The incline was a bit tough but I pushed through!

Nice and easy, relatively flat trail. There is a fully paved road, so it’s easy. There are plenty of ways you can enter. Its main entrances are going to be through Towne Ave or through Mt Baldy Road. You can also begin in the middle of the trail by entering through one of the small neighborhood trails.

It’s nice for a stroll, there are plenty of flowers along the trail and some horses! I wouldn’t consider it as a good hike, but a great stroll.

Get there early. Limited parking. Good steady incline the whole way. you need a Wilderness Pass.

Nice easy trail. Arrive early to beat the crowds. We started at about 7:30 & had the trail to ourselves but by the time we finished there were lots of people & we were being constantly buzzed by mountain bikes (even though there last fews miles they're supposed to go 3mph…)

Beautiful hike. Bring enough water and food for more than 6 miles especially if starting the hike after 8am. Prepare for full exposure on the way back and try to be done by 1pm when the sun is the hottest. The brush to pass through is no joke...very unmaintained. Check for ticks afterwards too!

Great trail! But closed due to red flag until 1/30/18

Great hike to do alone or with friends. A lot of incline, but the view at the top is well worth it!

Great hike went a different route and loved it I know I will be sore tomorrow lol

The trail was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Very Scenic and you’re surrounded by beauty!! The last 1.5 miles to the peak are difficult. It’s very steep, lots of bushes and loose gravel. Would advises thick pants and long sleeve if only for that portion of the hike!! I didn’t make it to the actual PEAK I was too nervous about the narrow, slippery switchback!!!!! However my 19 year old daughter and I LOVED IT!!!

Prepare for incline pretty much half the time.

I took the trail to the right, Corbal Canyon Trail, and I enjoyed the steady incline and mostly full sun leading to a solid workout and enjoyable hike!
