Did this today, encountered nobody the whole time there I guessed since the Glendora Mountain Road closure. If you hate walking on asphalt, one way to access this place through the Colby Trail and then the Upper Colby Trail which then connects to this trail. It made a great workout with the additional length. The weather was brutal today on Independence Day. You'll suffer if doing this on a cloudless sunny day. The trail itself is wide but not particularly scenic. It's kind of monotonous and long to be honest.

The incline was insane! Once completed I felt accomplished. Make sure to take hiking poles, water and a hat. Enjoy

On a cooler day this hike was nice. Smells are great

One of my favorite trails. For the 2nd time this month I have seen more rattle snakes then ever. You can hear them rattle when you walk by be careful. If you come down mystic trail the brush is overgrown.

steep up hill, lots of thistle and poison oak, had to stop cause me and my friend heard a hive buzzing after the first uphill climb, we don't what hive it was, nor we wanted to find out if it was hostile or not

Very nice trail. Should be rated as moderate, my health app recorded 45 floors climbed in under 4 miles. It was steep! Definitely some loose dirt and hills you have to be careful on. Also, tons of poison ivy in one section of the trail. It’s avoidable if you stay on the trail.

Fun hike, crosses several small streams, is steep, and has some nice views. However, it is pretty overgrown. You’re going to be stepping through a lot of bushes/plants, maybe bring pants. Also my gf saw some snakes that freaked her out, so be aware of what you’re getting into.

Three weeks in a row, I have personally seen rattlesnakes. Each one is about 3’ with about 7-rings of rattles.

Great trail, beautiful views and pretty wildflowers! Like other reviewers have mentioned, some parts of the trail are a little overgrown and we got off track once or twice, but I always had good cell coverage to double-check the map on my phone. Lots of shade as well. Some parts have pretty steep downhill sections so make sure to wear proper shoes. Free street parking at the trailhead off Loraine Ave.

Nice quiet hike. Some trails a little overgrown and not well marked. Nice mix of shade and sun. Some poison oak.

Great hike lots of wild plant life and insects including large beautiful butterflies , Beware of California whip snakes and rattlesnakes. A great Place to forage for white wild Sage and bush sage. :)

I want to give this 5 stars...I did it backwards...so total rock scrambling up...when we started I erupted in uncontrollable laughter...this trail is NO joke!! Straight up rocks falling down as you climb! I felt very very very accomplished after doing the entire trail! I might try this again...and this time maybe go the direction intended! AMAZING workout!

More "moderate" than easy; don't bring grandma in flipflops! I would suggest doing the "lollipop" loop counterclockwise, so that your ascent is in the shade.
