If you continue to take this trail up and up and up, you will eventually get to Sierra Peak. Sierra Peak is easy to recognize because there are numerous antennas, cell towers and such on the summit. There are not any signs after the trailhead sign but if you keep taking the main trail, you will find Sierra Peak but it will be about 4 1/2 miles each way. The trail starts out very easy with a gradual incline on a fire road. You will pass over a street and continue to gain elevation. There are VERY steep areas which surprised me. I recommend bringing hiking poles (which I did not bring) and good hiking boots, especially for the return trip.

Additionally, unless you love extreme heat, do this hike early or on a cool day because there is no shade at all.

Normally, I would give this type of hike (mostly fire-type road) a 2 or 3-star but the extreme steepness, spring wildflowers, and the windy cool day made it a wonderful hike.

Indian truck trail is one of our favorite close to home trails. Nice, easy trail for beginners. Connects with the main divide, and once you get to the top you can go left to Santiago peak and follow it down into Orange County or go right and head into Silverado Canyon. The view from the top is amazing!

Went this morning with my daughter and 2 grandchildren ages 3 & 5. Beautiful scenery, will definitely go again!

this is a very steep long trail. nice views. Just make sure you go on a cool day. not much shade. But the views are worth it !

Nice hike. Great little falls at the end

The trailhead is in a new residential area. A small amount of trash is present. It looks like people sometimes dump here. A mile in there is a church retreat. It’s a nice quiet area to have one.

The first four miles the trail is dry and dusty. This is where it’s not to fun when the off-road vehicles pass. The day I was on the trail there were not too many. I saw a couple of hikers, a guy on mountain bike, Motorcycle and Jeeps. A little of everything.

Once you get four miles the scenery changes. It gets a lot greener. Many more tall trees. The trail is softer from leafs and pine needles. The temperature is much cooler. The view was amazing. It felt like I was in a different place. I was surprised to find it like this.

I had started my run late and could only put in seven miles to the saddle. From there I could make out the ocean through the haze. On a clear day this would be a cool place to come. From here the trail splits. To the left is Trabuco Peak and Santiago to the right.

I hope to come back and run to Trabuco. It’s 11.5 miles to the peak for a total of 23 miles. I’ll need to bring a pack with more water, food and safety gear.

Incline trail. I grade this trail moderate/hard. We parked on street that led to trail, why drive? The views were okay, the leg workout was good. Keep in mind the trail is full of uneven ground, holes. If your okay with the incline being most of your trail, this is for you! Wish I could post trail pictures for you, don’t know how though.

took my stock 2wd s10 up to the peak and back down had no problems getting up there pretty easy trail has some nice view points.

Fun trail. Definitely a hike to do if you live close by and want to get fit. Great views of the IE and I like how it connects to Blackstar Canyon when you get far enough back.

Gate is closed 2miles before parking lot and notice posted saying Emergency closure April 20th through May 18th, 2018. I’ll try to post photo of sign warning $5,000 fines for being in area.

Awesome Hike! Kids loved it and Mother Nature Gave us a lot of shade along with some nice breeze through the openings of the canyons. Kids will Be Kids, bring extra socks and shoes, A Good possibility they will purposely splash crossing the creeks.

My primary concern was getting my Scion xB up to the trailhead. I left early in the morning and drove a slow 10 mph but it managed! Decent amount of water on the falls.

The walk up to the actual trailhead is a paved path behind a residential area and then a dirt road...that part was kind of a bummer, to be honest. Dry, not scenic, trash and dog doodles everywhere and be sure to slather on the sunscreen there is no shade on this part. Once you hit the actual Tin Mine trail it gets better! Pretty, nice shady spots for breaks, the mine itself is pretty interesting. and overall an easy trail with minimal elevation change. There is a cute little creek which only had water in a few spots in April, but either way, the trail is quite lovely and lots of little creatures too. Was pretty crowded as well, but for how close it is, it still felt like a hike in the woods. :)

Really enjoyed the hike. Shady and small creeks to cross made it very enjoyable. The car ride to get there was bumpy but also fun. Not a difficult hike even for small dogs.

Started at the trailhead on foothill at 6:40 am (parking was already getting packed) took 3 1/2 hours to get to the Doppler. We stopped a few times here and there on our way. The trail is a dirt fire road all the way up. It’s very well maintained. There are some other trails that go along side of this main trail that cuts the distance from 6 miles down to 4.8 miles but it is a lot more steep. However it is not as widely taken so on a crowded day you can take one of these and it’s a nice get away from the crowd. Beeks place was very cool and had a great view. And lots of shade which is the only place you’ll have shade aside from the Doppler. Any time after 9am there is no shade at all on the trail so start early. After a light lunch hiked back to the car in 2 hours. Me and my friend both used 3 liters of water I oils recommend just a tad more because it gets hot in the sun. Overall had a great time and would highly recommend it!

Great hike. Had some trouble finding the trailhead. Best thing to do is to put directions on your GPS to Green River Promenade, Park there and then head east on green river road until you hit the trail head. The address to the trailhead is 4180 Green River Rd, Corona, CA 92880.

And then you are ready to hike! About .3 miles in, you have to cross a street to continue on the hike, there are no signs but just continue directly ahead. I loved the views from the various viewpoints.

I only hiked 3 miles in, but you can go further if your in the mood. There is a section that was loose gravel and i had to stop a couple times to reassess how to traverse it. My dog did fine on the trail. I would recommend to wear a SPF hat and sunscreen, it is completely exposed the whole way. Bring plenty of water.

I wouldn’t say this trail is hard, just moderate. It was pretty gradual, but not enough that you are huffing and puffing. The trail was quiet on a Friday morning. Not a single soul when I hiked. Overall, I would come again with some friends!

Los Pinos Peak has nice views. The trail itself had a steady incline most of the way up to the peak from where we were parked. We hiked this just after a storm, so it was really misty with fog and dew early in the morning. Would love to see the views on a clearer day from this peak.

Be careful of mountain bikers...even though the trail says no bikes, there were plenty of bikers along trail as we go more into the late morning time. We even had to jump into the bushes off trail to get out of the way of some bikers. Quite a scary moment for us.

This trail is my favorite in Corona by far. It has many different routes for different levels of hikers. There are south, west, and north trails. South trail is shorter but has a short and steep dirt road that you can see from 91 Fwy. West trail leads you to waterfall with couple mine caves on the way. Go pass beyond the end of trail sign, you will need to clime some huge rocks to keep going. A great 8-10 miles round trip if you can make it. The north trail is a uphill hike all the way to the other side of the mountain. I walked the narrow bike trail with my 2 dogs. It’s a bit slippery but will for sure burn some calories and test your guts. Bring good hiking shoes to stay safe. It’s a fun and challenging trail that you can visit all year round.

took my 3 and 5 year old girls on this trail for the 1st time. absolutely loved the trail as it was easy compared to some of the other trails we have been doing. the only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the abundance of dog crap for about the first .5 to .75 miles of the trail. can't believe how much crap was not picked up. today was a cool day and we started about 11:30am but due to the lack of shade, I would not recommend starting this late in the day. we did 2.5 miles in for a total if 5 miles. can't wait to go again. oh parking can be tough so be prepared for that.

So beautiful and quite peaceful. One of my favorites :D

Great trail. We ended up having to park 2 miles from the trail head so we ended up with a 7 mile hike. Still very beautiful!

Favorite!

Got their early and was drizzling rain. Gorgeous hike. I really enjoyed it! You will cross a small stream several times but you wont get your feet wet. They say this is a popular trail and I can see why. I recommend hitting it early to beat the crowd.
