amazing view and unique monument at the top. steep paved hike to the monument. bathroom at the top was great to have. free parking.

Went to hike Colby Trail but hiked this trail instead. Although it says moderate it was rather easy, no steep inclines but little rocky and narrow in some place. Even our little pug enjoyed the hike. Good thing most of the bikers have a bell on their bike otherwise you may not see them until it’s to late. Found a awesome tire swing and a cool little cave. Would definitely do this hike again.

Ran here a week after the rains and trail was pretty torn up. There was a “trail closed” sign 8 miles in that I ignored. Lots of rocks, hard on the feet. Most of the elevation gain was at the last 5 mile stretch. The best trail I never want to run again!

Lovely trail! I would do this again and recommended it! Beautiful views throughout the loop. Some icy patches of snow on the trail today, 01/21/18, but not enough to necessitate micro spikes—just trekking poles. The section from Mt. Waterman to the main trail is not well marked, so check your All Trails map at this point especially so you don’t get lost. Check the forecast and layer up as needed.

Easy path to follow with some great views.

Fun and surprising trail. The Munits cave is a pleasant surprise, going up is not difficult, coming down does need firm grabs and well profiled shoes. Not sure coming down from the other side of the cave is the way complete the trail loop..Will explore in future trips! Lots of hikers with kids and/or dogs, all friendly and nice to have with.

Seems like it be a pretty cool hike but there was no water the waterfall was dry

This trail was quite easy! The waterfall wasn’t far & great for kids!

Good hike. Great for family time and adventure.

This is a beautiful trail. Would recommend!

Beautiful! Wonderful scenery. My only complaint is that the trail is not moderate, it is very easy.

Does anybody has the physical address of this trail? Where can you park?

Thanks

It’s hard but the view is so amazing!!!!

Easy trail with nice views and beautiful birds ❤️ can spot dumbarton bridge and 92 freeway! It has no shade but nice ocean breeze.

Beautiful hike through gorgeous forest land. Begins rather flat through a wooded area with oaks and scrub. Lots of shade intially. Then you go past a running creek and eventually get to the climb. It’s switchbacks and more exposed as you climb to the top. The end of the trail is on a very open main divide road-you will see cars, motorcycles, and mountain bikers on the road. There were a few people on the trail today and we saw a group of mountain bikers, but compared to Holy Jim, this hike was far more peaceful. You’ll get to see Newport Coast and the ocean from the trail. Once at the top, you’ll also get to see the Sam Bernardino mountains-they were covered in snow today. Really an enjoyable hike. It took us about 2 hours to reach Main Divide Rd. We walked a bit of the road and then had lunch. Our climb down took just over an hour. Total trip was 4h and 8 miles.

This is a beautiful hike with well maintained trails. A lot of interesting sights. No cell service though so don’t rely on your phone for a guide (our mistake).
