I did this loop by mistake. As a newbie, I missed the PCT trail in saddle junction (the direct route to Tahquitz Peak) and followed signs toward Tahquitz meadow. It all worked out in the end as the All Trails app got me to where I was going all the same :) it was a strenuous hike for my pup and I especially since we carried a ton of water but beautiful trail & spectacular views from the top!

Fairly busy, but this approach to Jacinto is a good training hike for the longer approach from Idyllwild and from the desert floor. While it may be cheating, it’s a gorgeous hike from the top of the tram, and I would definitely recommend completing this approach before others, especially if you are hesitant!

Gorgeous hike, and a nice easy way to bag the second highest peak in Southern California.

HikingGreat!

Very similar to other reviews, this is a great hike that's easy to do and has amazing vistas, but there are some things to note. One is that this trail is not 10.7 but closer to 12. Second is the stretch of dirt road that's not clearly identified in the description. If you're starting from Humber Park then going down this road can be painful on the knees. Second, is that AllTrails failed to notify us to take Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail. This is one of many failures with the app!

Incredible loop. Plenty of water currently but that won’t last more then another couple weeks. Short section of Willow Creek trail is over grown. Camped at round valley, came out to 18 miles total not 15

We did the entire loop and then some. The parking lot was full so we ended up parking near the creek about .25 miles down. On our walk to up we followed he bottom part of the loop then deviated from the road after yellow post to a zig zag trail that was gorgeous. We came out on the private road then were back on track. While we were exhausted and the elevation was intense on the knees, hips, and feet, the view and accomplishment made it worth the pain. Have fun!

Definitely an easier way to the San Jacinto summer, there’s small springs along the way if you run out of water. The trail is beautiful and empty. I saw about 4 hikers. Perfect time to do this trail is now. The weather was perfect.

Did cactus to clouds (and back to cactus due to tram closure). Must leave parking lot before 2AM (I left at 10PM). Trail can be difficult to follow at times, and there’s some trees blown down on the upper section. No snow on trail, and creek is running at Long Valley, need some kind of filter for any of the water sources at the ranger station/tram. Down-hiking from the tram to the parking lot is brutal: hiking poles strongly recommend. Won’t do this again until tram is running and you can ride down.

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

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.

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.

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

2nd time doing to the - at the tree line trail gets lost under the snow - 3 to 4 feet of soft melting snow - wet - the weather was perfect both at the start and at the trame. Didn’t go to the summit due to trame close but still 22ish miles or beautiful San Jacinto.

Hiked from N Lykken trail head to snow line at 7500 ft. On Sunday March 15. The last mile ( aka The traverse) has patchy icy snow fields - would highly recommend micro spikes to cross. I turned back at about a 1/4 mile into the traverse - the Tram is closed due to COVID 19 pandemic. So you have to hike back - all told a 19 mile out and back for me - ( 2/3s C2C2C) great challenging hike! Enjoy! Andrew Z

I hiked this trail from the North Lykken trail to the Skyline Trail, tuning back at 5,000 feet elevation. According to my Fitbit we did 14 miles out and back, but according to my fellow hikers, we only did 10. I’ll agree to 12. It is a constant climb and coming down isn’t any easier albeit faster. Like any trail, do as much or little of the trail as you are able to. There are rewards on this trail around every corner especially now, during the spring months. The weather was perfect, getting cooler the higher I got. No bugs and lots of sun.
