Easy trail. 4.7 miles from the parking lot, 1:16 at 3.8 mph average hiking pace. Stay left a 1st fork. I did the loop counter clockwise. A couple short semi steep hills at very beginning of the trail and at the end of the loop, the rest is easy. Not a lot of scenery, urban views. Horses use the trail, watch out for droppings and lazy dog owner droppings. Good short workout. Probably prettier when it's green

Backpacked into Rock lakes from Lindsay lake. The trail is a fairly good 4x4 road to Lower Rock lake. Easy hiking with slow uphill grade. Lots of water and lakes. Beautiful scenery once on top. We went in Mid May and there was still a little snow around. Strong winds and one night we got lots of thunderstorms and hail. Lots of camping options in this area.

5-22-18 I started around 0830 and was back at my car around 1430.
This hike is very tough. I was the only one on the trail, I did not see anyone else. lots of great scenery. but the falls were dried up but i figured that going into the hike. i would recommend hiking poles to help. I took 3 liters of water and i had it finished by the last mile or so. There is a lake and after my hike it was nice to relax and dip my feet in. Overall I would recommend this hike.

Nice city walk. Not too much to see but a good quiet break (at times) from loud traffic. Completed in about 1.5 hours. It was not hard and great for walking the dog.
Note: do not do this alone, there were spots of homeless people and it’s off track so many would find this intimidating

It was a nice little out and back. We ran it on the way back which kicked it up a few notches. There are a few decent inclines, and nice views where you can see all of lakeside. We also found a cute pit bike track towards the top. It is nice to have a good little trail like that nearby so travel time is no issue, and being in the midst of so much housing I would feel safe doing it on my own but can still get the feel of being out in nature.

This is one of my new nearby favorites. It isn't too long but if you go all the way to the top you're sure to feel the burn. The camping area where you start looks like a great place to picnic as well, I'd like to make a day trip out of it some time. There are great lookout points, and a cool forest area; plenty to see. I've gone twice now and it hasn't been too crowded either time, you can hear the traffic from the road though that is my only complaint, and parking is $3.

Went up after heavy rain and was surprised it was open. Awesome views, blue difficulty, most stock 4x4s can get through when it's dry.

Breathtaking spot!
Awesome hike!
Highly recommend !!

Great trail!! Lives up to its name and kicks some butt (in the beginning). Definitely worth the trek as once you make it to the "top" it opens up into a beautiful expanse. There are several other trails to follow that are pretty flat and easy to maneuver. The trail is clean and clear of brush. Saw one dead snake on my run today, but otherwise nothing other than some birds. The grass and trees are all still so green and quite lovely!! Gonna go back again next week!

This is one other amazing trail to hike. You hike along the bank of the vibrant river and its very refreshing.I had been on a mid spring sunny day when the weather was around 70F. I had started to hike by 1030 hrs and found it highly draining and had got dehydrated by the time i got back, may be I am used to hiking a lot during fall and winter and had still not acclimatized to the spring weather. My suggestion is to hike during dusk or dawn so that you will to get enjoy the hike thoroughly. It took 0430 hrs for me to hike this 8.9 mile hike.
Note on the travel direction: after you cross the vehicle bridge in the cherry lake road while driving from Highway 120, please turn to the right towards the cottages. There is no sign board directing to the trail head and mostly you will tend to get lost. from there it is just a 3/4 mile to the trail head and it is called as Stanislaus National Forest Trail Head.

Really good local hike. We decided to trek the shorter route, from SR 67. If you can, park on the same side as the entrance to the hike. The cars on that hwy speed by! We took our three year old son, and he made it all the way up and down. It has a paved road the entire way up, which was ideal for our little one. And just like most other reviews it was definitely steep throughout. The hike has great views and a ton of huge rocks that line the path. This hike is great if you want to reach potatoe chip rock quickly, and go during a weekday. It’s less crowded. Overall it was fun and moderately challenging at times.

great trail, amazing views and cold drinks available once you reach the top via the tank trail...

camped at blue lake last night it got 1-2 feet of snow overnight so be prepared. with prior accumulation there were some waist deep sections and snow shoes would help

Great walk even if you take the short walk. Green and cool in April and May.

It was beautiful, except the graffiti. Waterfalls were amazing.

So amazing in the Spring to see the power of the water. Easy trail and allows you to get really close to the base of the falls.

Great hike for the kids. Trails are very clean and safe for kids to walk on.

Great view at every stop. Great to hike up and have a picnic with your kids. Will come again.

I love this park. Its pushed back from the santa clara valley so you feel like you are in the wilderness. Few people are ever on the trail. Most of the trails are fire roads making it easy terrain to hike. The park is big enough to get in 15 miles and 3000ft or more of gain. A great place to train for the bigger summits in the summer.

I love this trail...definitely one of my favorite local hikes. I love that you get the great views of being at over 9,300 ft without too long or overly arduous hike like some of the other local peaks. I highly recommend this hike for those who haven't done it and I look forward to coming back and enjoying this one many times and I have done it twice in less than 6 months.

Parking- Vincent Gap parking lot off Hwy 2...we have gotten there early so it has never been an issue finding a spot and it is a rather large lot (you do need an Adventure Pass)

Trail- it starts near the restroom...the trail to the left going down will take you to Big Horn Mine and the trail going up will take you steeply up to Baden-Powell and there will be many switchbacks and many great views as you make your way up; at about a mile there is a cool wooden bench to catch your breath or catch the great view; it is about 4 miles to the top and you will reach a 1,500 yr old tree less than a half a mile from the top called "Wally Waldron" at a flat kinda narrow portion that is a mini Devil's Backbone; you will then make one final ascent up to the peak where you will see a monument to the namesake who was a Boy Scouts leader and a pole with a writing station that contains some notebooks to log your thoughts, message, etc... and just beyond that you should find the wooden sign that you can hold with the elevation and a US flag

Peak- there is a pretty large area at the top for you to find a spot for yourself/group to not bother others or be bothered by others and there are 360 degree beautiful views

Distance- about 8 miles
Elevation Gain- about 2,800 ft
Peak- about 9,400 ft
Duration- between 4 to 6 hrs depending of course on your speed, how many breaks, and how long you spend at the top
Difficulty- Moderate to Hard (definitely easier than the other SoCal peaks like Mt Baldy or San Jacinto)

Great trail for trail running/ hill workout. Not too steep and good footing.

Only good as a training hike. It is hot with little shade. Views are nice in places. Few people some mt bikers. The trail is a road so there is plenty of space for all.

Wonderful hike that spans several trail junctures. Started at Lake Jackson and followed the Jackson Lake Trail for roughly two miles. Trail is well used and easy to follow as sections used to be old forestry roads. Elevation is gained at an even pace with plenty of scenery to view. This portion offers majestic views of the Mojave Desert and the lake once you climb high enough. The trail ends at the PCT. From here, follow the trail to the right. This section of the PCT runs along the ridge like just below Jackson Flat Campground and will ultimately intersect the Baden-Powell parking lot. Sections of this trail are steep but well trafficked. Once reaching the parking area, there are several options that can be taken. This map is for Vincent’s Cabin, however I decided to walk a little farther and went to the Big Horn mine instead for a little more of a challenge. This made my total trip 12 miles. You may also choose Baden-Powell or Big Rock Creek if feeling adventurous. Just make sure you bring enough water and allow enough time. The return trip was a little strenuous as I worked my way back up the PCT until I reached the ridge again. From there everything evened out as the PCT is fairly flat in this section. After finding the Jackson Lake Trail, I started my decent back to the lake an my vehicle. Overall, well worth the adventure and added a lot more challenge to one of my favorite hikes.

beautiful view of running dam at end of trail; close access of its not busy.

mostly wide paths. uphill on the way to the dam, downhill on the return, except for the paved part right before the dam (about .25 miles).

Auburn national park is a great place for outdoor easy peasiness.
