I really admired how quiet it was on the trail. We just got 2 days of rain so the terrain was tricky on a very narrow trail. Overall I would do this trail again, just not in the winter time

Very fun and challenging hike. started around 6:00 am on black friday Mystic to Punk out to Poop out. Didn't see anyone until I was on my way down. I recommend trekking poles and hiking/trail running shoes.

Poop out Trail, got it’s name for a reason. The hiking incline is a hard one, I might say. It’s view is amazing once you reach the top. It’s a satisfying workout. I highly recommend you wearing hiking shoes.

pretty intimidating incline off the bat. google says to make a right. don't make a right and park on dirt on left. there is a wood that says Dalton and Poop out. if u go to the tipy top u get a 360 view. kicks ur butt.

Starts off very steep then it's all downhill on the way back on Mystic trail. Poop out trail lives up to its name, as you will be pooped out. It will give you the workout you need for lower body and legs strength. It will also help develop endurance uphill. When you reach the top, it's all worth the amazing views.

Poop Out to Punk Out and down to Mystic. Wow. This is my favorite hike to get a 2hr workout. You get 1500ft elevation gain in the first 1 1/2 miles so expect to get worked. Once you get to the top it's a long 3 1/4 miles trekking downhill. I'm thinking of starting at Mystic then to Punk Out and that will give me a longer time climbing up. Check out Potato Mtn for a nice 4.2 mi 1100 elevation gain 80min workout.

The trail humorously lives up to its name. For all that work it's not as gorgeous as I'd hoped, but I was looking for more of a work out and didn't care too much about the vistas, which were still solid in the big scheme of things.

I started from Colby, then went to the helipad and made my way along. What I like about this trail is that you can take the fire road, or a light trial to the sides. You can also head north on many of the ridges and explore some of them, getting a good view of the canyon.

At the end you are met with “attack dog” signs, so I doubled back. But as I didn’t have enough food, water or time to go all the way back, I decided to forge my own path down. Not Garcia, but a ridge more west. I ended up in a fancy community, and got a few concerned looks from locals as I wandered out of the water channels.

Fun trip though, easily recommend.

The elevation climb on the way back from the cross is the most work you’ll do on this hike. Don’t think children under 5 years old would like this fire road trail? Not much to explore and a bit more work in my opinion for the lil ones in terms of an “easy” hike. Wondering if people follow the Garcia trail down to the a? Since the fire??? Please comment if so.. nice cardio walk..
(Hike is about 8 miles round trip)

First .7 of a mile is steep steady incline. You’ll reach a flag once your there. The push to punk out is also steep and steady incline. There is a flat break between the two challenges... the hardest trek is the first 1.5-2 miles from then on is quite peaceful. great place to work on incline for more intense hikes like iron mountain by bridge to no where... I’m here every morning... love this challenge. No matter how many times I do it I still have a great work out from this challenge.
P.s. there’s a cool flat cement stand big enough to workout on/ or hang with a group.. it’s after passing the flag walking towards punk out sign.. it’s will be on the right hand side right as the mountain dips before ascending again.

Very low key and unknown trail unless a Glendora local

It was beautiful when I was there and I was so lucky to have such a wonderful friend

it was a nice little Trail that really did poop you out when you got to the top.

Super confusing trail at times. So many different smaller trails running off each other. And be careful because I accidentally stumbled onto a homeless encampment up there. Lucky I wasn’t alone :/

First time to visit this fun place. steep incline will definitely swet your short workout. You might need your pole stick so pls bring it just in case you needed. Watchout for bikers going down. best place to visit would be weekday it's not crowded. I'd love to visit again and run sometime.

Came here at least 3 times a week over the summer with my dog. Easy trail but I love it! Once you get to the picnic area, it’s sometimes fun to go down below the bridge and walk through/along the edge of the creek until the end. Makes it slightly harder and gives a different perspective, your shoes will get wet though so come prepared.

Easy hike for beginners. Loved the bridges that you cross along the way, would have been a perfect setting if there were water in the stream. The road up to the trail is very easy to drive through with almost no incline while driving.

Super confusing... got lost multiple times trying to follow the apps trail. Ended cutting it short cause I kept hitting dead ends. Not the nicest trail- lots of dry bush but there is good incline. Good local spot if you live nearby

Directions to trail were incorrect so don’t follow through app. Several snakes on the trail, down trees and at one point completely overgrown trail.
Looks like it hasn’t been maintained in a while.
Looks like it might be a good trail in Spring when water is flowing and if it got some maintenance.
Had to turn around so didn’t get to the end.

A nice short hike using gentle switchbacks to guide you over two summits and through a quiet creek bed... and if you arrive early, the whole hike will be in the shade!

I clicked on the directions and they don’t pop up on the navigation how do you get here ?

TIP: There’s a felled tree between the Mystic Canon/Big Dalton trailhead towards the east. This is a easy hike along asphalt roads with several trails along the way (Mystic Canyon to the north, Wren Meacham to the south and Pavil Canyon to the east). Also to the east, on the north side, are paved switchbacks taking you up to about 1500 ft.
