Good workout. Rocky most of Trail so watch your step. It was very hazy at early morning so no real vista view from top this trip.

very good hike. To make it hard and the full 4.2 miles go right on the fork in the road. This will have you going up the stairs instead of coming down them.

First time doing this trail. Liked it a lot. Quiet with great river views. Only thing I didn’t like was the amount of dog excrement along the trail.

Love this trail. not good for out of shape seniors. There are some narrow cliffs and boulders that they could easily get hurt on. I'm upper 50's and take my dog several times a month. scenic, peaceful and not too strenuous.

Nice and quiet. Quite a bit of poison oak tho

its was a nice hike, not nearly as hard as I thought. Its a cake walk compared to potato chip rock

Fun trail with beautiful views. Not difficult at all, but does have some tricky spots. Our dog loved it! There were also people fishing and getting photos taken while we were there. The river was why we went on this hike and we will definitely be back!

Love this trail! The water crossing are fun and nice for the horses when it’s hot. There’s plenty of shade and nice footing for your horse!

Interesting trail, great incline at the beginning and then trail stops because it is overgrown.

Great trail, like the other reviews said, pretty easy to start with a few slick places. Saw tons of poison oak, poison ivy and a big rattlesnake, so keep an eye out.

One of my favorite local hikes. Good workout and beautiful flowers and views.

Love this trail. Beautiful along the river. And you can go further than the point on the map. Relatively easy footing(a small amount of scrambling).

Great views and a good climb. Will be doing this hike again, bring water especially if hiking in the afternoon sun.

It was a pretty easy trail. There were some narrow/rocky hills that made it a little difficult for kids/elderly people but other than that it was great. The view of the river was lovely. I would recommend going early morning so it’s not so hot. We got there around 11 and the parking lot was full so you have to wait for a car to exit to enter. Take lots of water and sunblock!

Very easy hike, but beautiful, relaxing and therapeutic! Great for kids!

It was nice a nice hike! It was quite tough though for our 9 and 5 year old. We also backpacked our 18 month old. The views from the top of the summit were awesome! The trail wasn’t too busy when we went which was a Saturday afternoon. It was 4 miles total from the bottom of the hike to the top of the summit where the American flag is waving and back down.

Busy trail. Didn't notice any litter. Sucks to see housing development being built below.

Good hike! Great views

Loved this trail. Definitely go early. When we were on our way out a ton of people were passing us going in. There are some narrow parts that make it difficult when trying to pass other hikers.
The view of the river is wonderful. Our 3 and 6 year old kids did good, we only did about half though.

Lovely hike, great cardio. To bad people trash it with cigaret butts, papers, dog poops not picked up etc.

Very nice walk ,more easy then moderate

Best riding trails in Southern California!

Easy Trail Walk rather than hike... wonderful sound of water accompanies as you stroll along a walk friendly path. Ideal for kids and seniors... I would add that there are a couple of vistas (midway and at the turn around) that could serve as very romantic stops. One word of caution... pay careful attention to the parking lot closure time (7PM)... they will tow you!

mostly shaded, pretty stream along the trail, plenty of opportunity to make longer by veering off a number of side routes. Park benches along the way. Many people on horseback, so be aware if you bring the doggos along.

Great workout and rewarding views

Hardest thing I ever did. Worth it.

Great cardio is correct. It’s a strenuous hike, mostly upward. Couple points, I felt like I couldn’t go further, incline was a killer! Was able to do the difficult route and even though it was raining, enjoyed enough, I think I’ll be back! Carb up before going and bring water.

Hiked clockwise, uphill starts right away and then you're at the top. Looping around on the descent you get ups and downs. Bring water; hiking poles if your knees talk to you. Lots of families, so it's not crazy hard. But I bet those kids sleep well tonight!
