The Three T’s trail was a great challenge. Our trio began around 8:30am and finished the loop at 5:30pm. Overall, getting up to the saddle was fun - a mix of terrain on the way - and made for a nice place to get a quick snack. Afterwards, we made our way up to the first peak Timber, without much difficulty. Some switchbacks but overall spread out. Note that the trail was obstructed at one point by a fallen tree which was easy enough to navigate around. The trail reached its most difficult point (in my opinion) at this next section as we made the ascent to Telegraph. It was steep, and shaley at times which made the switchbacks especially difficult. We had lunch once getting to Telegraph which had great views of Thunder mountain, Mount Baldy, ski lifts, and a stunning 360° view of the mountain range. Eventually we got down to the parking lot and had to walk along the two way road to get back to out car which was mildly sketchy. Definitely not something you want to do at night. Also, we didn’t see any rattle snakes however there were signs posted that mentioned recent sightings - so be aware. Overall a great day to be outside and a beautiful time of year to be hiking. Highly recommended if you want a good butt kicking !

This trail is officially back open and it was GREAT! We started our hike @ 8 AM, passed pretty views of the Creek on the way up (there was lots of water and kids/dogs playing in it), up to ice house saddle, and back down using the Chapman Trail. If you’re scared of heights (as in walking directly beside a cliff with no railing), do not use the Chapman Trail. Go back down the way you came up using the Ice House Canyon Trail. Chapman Trail was very narrow at certain parts, cliff side, and extremely rocky. I was fine though, along with our dog and 3 others using, and we’re all pretty novice hikers. Just gotta be careful of where you step. We were also the only ones to use that trail, while on it. We passed others when we were just about out of it, back onto Ice House Canyon Trail. It was a great hike, and I’ll be back to hike up further to Cucumonga Peak.

Nice simple paved trail with the wifey that led to a lookout of the falls. Little incline along the way up with nice views of the trees and mountains. Lots of families on a Saturday, not too hot at all

5/23/2020 Initially our plan was only to do ice house canyon trail, however once we reached the end of ice house canyon trail and saw that cucamonga peak was only 2.4 miles we decided to try it!!! Certain parts of the trail had snow, it was icy and slippery. On the way down the snow trail was icy & slippery. Although, I had hiking boots & trekking poles, it was still too slippery had to use left hand to grab on the snowy rocks while trying to maintain my right hand on both trekking poles to avoid slipping and falling... scary as the trail is on the edge of the mountain yikes!!!

Completed today. Alltrails app didn't start to record. Tried few times and nothing. Overall grood hike. Lots of loose gravel through the trail requiring good balance. Windbreaker is must to carry. 99.9% of hikers didn't wear masks and didn't respect social distancing guidelines.

Awesome trail was kinda crowded but I didn’t mind since I went solo. I overpacked thinking it was gonna be colder and windy at the top. Brought about 3.5 liters of water. Got on the trail about 7 am, took ski hut to baldy bowl to summit in about 3 hours. Great conditions up top on my day. Around 1045 went down devils backbone to baldy ski area and took Bentley back to the car on mount baldy road. Finished at 130pm.

it was great to finally get back up to baldy summit. lots of hikers: 60% without masks 40% wearing. still has some patches of snow starting about a tenth of a mile past the ski hut and then sporadically up the baldy bowl trail. no need for microspikes. traveled down the backbone. amazingly clear today with some slight wind clearing the way for awesome views. temperatures at night drop down to upper 40's but i think this is last weekend of cool temperatures. the heat starts next week so start early!

Loved it

Hiked ok 5/23. You can park right in front of the where you the “parking pass” but you don’t need one. Every time I go I park In the same spot and never get negative feedback. Trail had a few people but not a lot. At the top it was crowded. Snow is clearing up. It’s 6.4 to the too , round trip 3.1. 5 hours and 15 for me. IG: trail_goat

Incredible hike on 5/23/20. Highly recommend getting there close to sunrise as possible to ensure a parking spot is available, along with not dealing with as many hikers traveling in the opposite direction. Hike is challenging, it took about 7.5hrs, but no snow on the trail. Bring several layers of clothing, along with plenty of food and water. Enjoy the hike, the views are absolutely incredible!

beautiful and simple ! went in the afternoon friday & saw lots of families. would love to come post-pandemic, as for now 90% of hikers were unmasked and not even trying to follow social distancing measures at the falls themselves.

Great views! Hiked on 5/22 and there was a decent number of people on the trail but it was easy to maintain distance. About half way up, it gets noticeably steeper and windier.

Parked across the the street from the Trout Pond, which made this hike 14 miles not 11. Found the route fun for all the different environments you go through on the way up, but the constant fight for footing amongst loose rock was a soul-sucking battle. I prefer the more direct route to the top of Baldy that passes by the ski hut. This is good training though for anyone attempting Whitney. Almost the same amount of elevation gain in half the mileage (albeit at lower elevation). A few patches of snow on the north facing exposure. Had no poles or microspikes. Up and back in 6 hours.

May 23, 2020. Backpacking day 1. Started up Ice House Canyon and hiked up Timber Mountain before heading to Cucamonga Peak to camp for the night.
