Disagree with many of the reviews in terms of difficulty. I found this extremely difficult. The trail goes on and on and on and on. I just summited Mount San Antonio twice (Baldy) + Baden-Powell, and this trail kicked my butt just much harder. I don't know about it being 10 miles either...felt like 20! Never been out on the trail, and wanted to call the Starship Enterprise "Beam me up Scottie". Just reading some of the reviews before I hit the trail about it being moderate is a misnomer.

I wish someone would have posted the truth...this is a difficult hike. This way mentally I would have been prepared and knew what I was in for instead of expecthing this hike to be 'moderate'...moderate my @$$.

Steady grade that seems to go on forever, and the summit is STEEP. Then there is the part before the summit where your descending...well after you descend the summit and think it's all down hill from there...nope...your hiking back up, and THEN down again.

This is not an easy hike I don't care what anyone says Be prepared for this hike because it's no joke. Bring trekking poles, and plenty of water.

View at the top was spectacular...well worth it!
