Nice wide trail and well used. Best done counter clockwise, as it is steep at the beginning in this direction with a flat return. Good views of the airport and the Bob Hope home. Connects to other trails, so be careful not to take a wrong turn.

Great trail. Nice views of the Coachella Valley. Fun morning walk.

Gets the heart rate up in places, but the reward is beautiful views.

Did this October 19’. Awesome hike. Definitely not the hardest hike I’ve done (easier than Whitney for reference). Highly recommend it! Great push and work out. View is nice. Last 2 miles seems endless

this his is beautiful but truly test the mind and body if you go make sure your not alone a good gps cause the snow erases the trail and plenty of water and food and the trail is 15.5 miles not 12.3

May 25 notes: Tram is not open, you have to do the full C2C2C or descend via another route. Mile 7.5 through Grubb's Notch is pretty sketchy with some downed trees and branches next to steep drop offs. I would have lost the trail several times without an offline map and GPS. Creeks are running and refill station is open at Round Valley (filter necessary). Restrooms have running water at Long Valley, but no potable water. My GPS watch clocked 16 miles museum to summit not 14. Prepare yourself.

The cost is $12.50. We went on a Saturday and it was beyond crowded esp. On their main waterfall which we couldn’t enjoy so we started walking out and found a smaller one where we got in and chilled for a cool minute, but eventually the ranger (from the other side of the trail) told us to get out and followed us to make sure we stayed ON the trail. I guess it’s really nice for a family hike but that’s about it. Rangers are strict.

5/25 (Memorial Day) - This a really nice trail, and Iwould highly recommend it. I'm always a sucker for a good loop trail, but the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because there is a section on a dirt road that connects the two trails to make the loop (South Ridge Trail to Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail). It was the worst part of the hike because it was mostly exposed and really dusty. I would do this trail clockwise as we did. I wouldn't want to start my hike walking up the steep dirt road, but that's just me. Devil's Slide Trail is GREAT! Not very steep and a lovely trail. The peak has plenty of spots to hang out and relax without being near others, but it wasn't that crowded at all. Also, AllTrails says this loop is 10.7 miles, THAT'S A LIE! We tracked 12.4 miles for the whole loop. We parked at Humber Park, starting about 7am and there was plenty of parking....the Adventure Pass is required as well. Overall, great hike, I would probably do it again since it wasn't very crowded and was a nice route. Bugs weren't too bad either.

Hiked it yesterday May 23rd. Trail in great condition. I mean it needs some trail maintenance, lots of fallen trees. But other than that things were great. The little residual snow is of no consequence. You dont have to over-carry water. Don't hike in the desert during peak hot hours. Use common sense. Once at Long Valley you can refill. But you'll have to filter it. Tram is not running so remember this is not an option to save you. I went down by route of Marion Mnt campground. I had a vehicle waiting there. Once again there is tons of water on the trail. This is a long hard hike. Don't doubt it. But at it's easiest right now.

it’s open, $12.50 per person, but worth it. water is running high right now so waterfall is impressive. must see if you live in/visiting palm springs area.

Beautiful challenging trail with high steps/stepdowns. The trail is a must hike here in ps. you will need 32oz of water and a mask or face covering, but waterfalls makes it worth it!

Easy hike, open again. Mask required and 32 oz of water. Waterfall was beautiful.

Whoa this place has a nice view but make sure to take plenty of water and wear sunblock.

Attempted on 4-25-2020 This is one of my favorite hikes it was my second time doing it and got to about 3 miles shy of the peak. Took a good amount of time hiking cactus to clouds to cactus. Ended up being 23.4 miles and 8881 feet of elevation gain. I needed snow shoes to make the peak this time being the first person to attempt it since quarantine. I just uploaded my videos and pictures from the hike on my Instagram if you’d like to see a more in depth view of the trail. meat_the_adventure

WARNING! Trail from hell. The beginning section is a deep sand wash and you will be covered in sand half way through it. As soon as you begin heading up into the hills, the trail is lined with hay grass that gets into your dogs fur. My dog began whimpering because he was completely covered in hay needles. It was very painful for him. Worst trail in the valley.

Fairly easy. Nice views. Water stops the whole way up to refresh or relax.

If this doesn’t give you a perky bubble butt, nothing will!

Is this open at the moment ?

This will always be a nice trail, but the last time I went (3 days ago) was disappointing. The parking is roped off to discourage hikers and families, which I appreciate. But yet there was still SO MUCH TRASH ON TRAIL. Please ensure you leave no trace, pack out what you pack in! And this is NOT DOG FRIENDLY. Dogs are not allowed on this trail and test I unfortunately saw so many poops and dog bags.
