Not my favorite trail mainly because your right along the freeway for most the way and mostly the only thing you see is the 91 and the traffic in the morning. The abandoned building toward the top is not actually part of the trail but that was cool to go look at too.

Make sure you go straight past those rocks when you get to the hiking information board and you will find a maker called nature trail. Super easy and fun walk but lots of poison oak so just stay on the trail. One of Coronas hidden historical places. Many people probably didn’t know that that mine was here long before corona was established and before people even decided to settle here so lots of historical importance to this mine which is overlooked.

Note: The dirt road that leads to this trail is rough and not suitable for most sedans. Mid to high clearance vehicles are recommended.

This is a beautiful canyon hike with a good amount of shade. It’s pretty busy though, so if you’re not a fan of crowds, come during the week or early on the weekend.

Fantastic off road adventure with lots of Geocaches along the route. We took a slightly different path and took a left at Main Divide and went back to Lake Elsinore area. High clearance is a must on this route, and 4x4 is highly recommended. Mostly it's dry but there are a lot of rocks (some medium to large, at least on the route we took) and larger ruts. All in all, it was awesome and had a georgous section through the trees.

Awesome trail. Great views

I did this hike on 6/06/18.
bring plenty of water no shade, except that Beeks place. last part of the hike entailed steep down Hills loose gravel and dirt hiking poles helped greatly. bring some snacks as you may want to take a break, start early.

Great family hike. Lost a pair of Maui Jim prescription glasses today, though. If found, please call Jason at 714-910-4101.

Went today in my ford ranger 2wd. Very easy trail and the scenery was nice throughout the entire run. Especially like it towards the middle where the pine trees cover you on both sides

Nice, easy trail that is shaded in most parts. Pretty oak trees line the way as you follow a thin creek.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

I've done this trail several times and its awesome. At some point after you split off from the main road you'll see an old mine and then theres a semi-hidden path a little past that which breaks off and goes up to the ridge. Some people have set up some ropes to help scale some sections of that side trail. It'll get you winded if you're a little out of shape but its doable. I definitely recommend looking for that off chute (its been a while since I've hiked it so I can't give you any pointers off the top of my head. Only thing I can tell you is that it starts on one of those side footpaths on your left that meets back up with that trail in 30 feet but breaks off from that. Pretty soon you'll be funneled into a narrow canyon that'll keep you single file for a moment). We've made it to the ridge twice and just take the ridge back down and it pops out behind those houses at the beginning.
I've continued past that ropes trail once and both of us hiking got poison oak! Look out for that back there. Wear pants. Take an immediate cold shower when you're done just to be extra safe especially if you brought a dog.

I've done this hike several times up til it meets with Main Divide and gone to the peak once several years ago. My rating might be a little harsh but I like greenery on hikes which is hard in southern california. Its a fire access road so it impossible to get lost. Never gets to steep unless you take the shortcut switchbacks a little before the peak, which we took when we went to the peak. I wouldn't recommend the shortcut. Not worth the "saved time" when you have to stop every so often to catch your breath.
On the way up you walk by what looks like a Korean Church retreat camp. Have seen some guys praying and wailing while I was hiking before. Then as you get further, you start to see Lake Matthews across the 15 and the view keeps getting better the higher you get. As you keep going trees start appearing and they get bigger and bigger, easy to forget you're in the heart of socal.
There are people off-roading so look out for that. Haven't run into any idiots driving recklessly thus far. Friend stepped right over a rattlesnake and only noticed at the last second luckily so definitely keep your eyes peeled and be mindful where you step.
No water sources so bring enough water for the whole hike, especially on those hot summer days
