HikingGreat!No shadeOver grown

Bring 2.5-3L of water to be safe. It can be very hot and dry. Beautiful views and easy to follow signs. Download AllTrails map, it helped a lot.

That is an awesome trail! With no shade, I can bear the blazing sun and saw interesting things like a dead bird. I also collected a rock there. At first, it is hard, and then when we came back, it was easy!

The directions for parking weren't very clear. There was no shade, so we decided to take the extension road to cut out half the trail. About a mile until the end of the hike the trail was hard to find. The directions on here were not sending us in the correct direction. We ended up finishing the schabarum extension trail that spit us out on Fullerton road. Super hot, dry brush. Not much scenery.

We LOVED this trail!! My husband and I only go hiking a handful of times a month so we still don’t know many trails and we tried this one. We had a lot of fun! You get the “woodsy” feel on parts of the trail and you get a mini cave and you get rocky parts and you get a small waterfall and you get a large river and beach. My husband and I are healthy and in our 20’s so it was easy for us, but when I think of “easy” trails I think of something my 60yr old auntie can go on with us. It definitely was not something she could do and little children will most likely have some difficulties on some parts. I think it should definitely be rated medium though I wouldn’t let that keep anyone back from brining their kids it’s really fun!

Nice day hike to Upper Twin Lake. Not a lot of day hikers. Almost all campsites at UT taken. Well maintained trail with a lot of forest and open area.

The trail was pleasant. The way out is mostly downhill making the way back a little more strenuous. We stopped at el dorado canyon, about 2 miles from the start at Michigan bluff town. Just before the bridge you can find a primitive campsite, but you will definitely have mosquitos, so be prepared. Smoke helped, but should be wary of the fire hazards- there was no wind but some dry brush. We also found a tick, so be wary. Beware of the old man and his chihuahua dog in Michigan bluff who assume you are up to no good, and do not want you to use the designated parking area at the trailhead. We had someone wait with our stuff at the trailhead while I moved my car and parked down the street.

We started at 7 AM, I recommend starting earlier especially in the summer months as it was about 92 degrees when we finished. The last trek up to the peak of Cowles is rough but it’s not bad. My watch clocked 8.5 miles and we finished in 4 hours. Bring more water than you think you need, my hands also swelled up pretty bad at the top. Overall a solid workout and a good hike!

Good trail for an easy workout. The waterfall is not big but getting there is pretty fun.

Gorgeous views, very rocky and not well marked. Follow the alltrails map and you will be fine. Some trees & rocks are marked with a blue marker that help let you know you are headed in the falls direction. Lots of people, go early!

It is a beautiful trail! Lots of people - all but a few were wearing masks. We took the advice of others and started at the East Ridge Trail and followed the instructions on here backwards. It was mostly shady, but the uphill was a little hard.

Such a gorgeous trail! A ton of greenery and a beautiful stream throughout a good portion of the hike. The trail also included a few neat tree-trunk bridges to cross over the stream. Definitely a good amount of incline to get a workout.

Easy trail with good views. Nothing crazy but you can go off trail a little and see different views

This trail was much exactly what you’d expect for the 16th highest of the high peaks! It was pretty easy for the first 2 miles up, but the last mile is pretty intense with some scaling up rocks. Either way the view is worth it! We completed the hike in 4.5 hours, but I do hike pretty fast. The only issue I had was with bugs, so bring some spray! Also make sure you take a very sharp left at the last sign to the Wright summit. Enjoy!

Fun little jaunt. May be considered “easy” for adults in good shape. Moderate for kids but very doable. Took everyone’s advice and followed the trails that were more “rocky” and had no issues finding it. 4 stars because it was a tad bit busy but a gorgeous trip.
