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!

To clarify, this trail is NOT CLOSED. However, you can only access it from Glendora Mountain Road or from a hike up the Upper Colby Trail. The Motorway crosses private property between Azusa Peak and the bottom of the hill and the lower entry in Azusa is gated off and not accessible to the general public. You can hike it past Azusa Peak in the downhill direction, but will eventually start seeing warning signs about private property and will need to turn around back toward GMR unless you have permission to pass through from Rancho Vasquez. (I am not sure if this can actually be acquired.)

Sweeping views from the ridgeline. Relatively easy hike compared to others in the area if you start at GMR. Toughest stretch is coming back, ascending from Azusa Peak to Glendora Peak, but still a relatively moderate ascent.

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.

First time here, and I thought it was a great workout trail. Good for mid-week hike. My hiking poles came in use.

lots of trails to explore here with ample shade and a little Creek, nice area to picnic, your in the mountains it's peaceful yet very close to urban areas, you wouldn't even know it.

This is short trail but it will give you a good workout!

great 2 miles round trip. saw a mountain king snake. see photo.

not all photos are of this creek trail hike. some are from Pupout hill hike

Nice trail! So many lizards but definitely easy and beautiful

Great workout- very steep hike. My 15 year old son loved it - take your teens on this trail it will most definitely challenge them.

Very steep. Great workout. You’re able to go down a less steep way once you get to the top.

Awesome fun! Recommended!

Maybe I’m spoiled from NorCal hiking, or maybe it was the 95degree heat, the trash, smog, or the homeless people living all over the mountain, but I just could not enjoy this hike very much. Suppose it’s good if you want a quick workout and are not expecting much, the views on the last descent were nice.

Nice little trail, quite short but very easy. A lot of lizards!

Biked and hiked here. It is easy, beautiful, and quick.

If you are looking to break a good sweat look no further! This steep incline is a great way to get in a short hike. I went at a slow pace and took a few 1 minute breaks and it took me 25-30 minutes to reach the top. Be sure to wear hiking or trail shoes as it is a bit rocky.

Great workout! I’ve done Poop Out countless times, but today I finally went to the top of Punk Out. Gorgeous view.

3/4 of the traffic were mountain bikers and they kindly warned us they were coming (or if more were coming behind them).

Loop took us three hours but next time I’ll run most of the way down and probably be able to do this in 2-2.5 hours.

Poop Out is my go-to intense hike (steep) and I usually run down Mystic Canyon for an all around great cardio workout in a beautiful location.

Really great for beginners and solo hikers. Trail is clearly marked along the way.

This was a nice easy hike to get away from people and into some woods. Most of the trail is in the shade and you walk along a little creek, so it stayed cool the whole time.
Pros: very few people, easy to park and easy to follow. There are also some cool rock roadcuts at the end.
Cons: you are along a road for a bit of it, which isn't particularly scenic.
We brought our two dogs and it was nice to have the trail alone for almost all of it.

Good workout, but a bit too steep for me, especially on the way back

I loved this hike! It's mostly uphill but not super challenging. There's not much shade so don't forget sunscreen. We hiked up to the cross but we weren't able to make it to the A. I will definitely be returning!

Don’t let the beginning of the hike deter you, it’s very steep and rocky. It will eventually even out. Great hike for serious hikers.

Super easy and great for first timers or someone just looking for a nice walk

Very steep at beginning and end, good workout, I recommend hiking shoes, dirt and rocks are loose be careful no to end up like me n slip and fall and scrape your knee. I would do it again

Nice hike up with the trail. Watch for poison oak. The road is a smooth return.

Easy trail water runs next to it so does the road. Lots of poison oak be weary. Really super good for a new jogger
