This is a steep trail, but it's short. When you get to the road at the top there are a ton of extra opportunities to explore. Going left there are a few trials that go through and around some cool rock formations with stunning views of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mtn ranges. Going right there are more trails and more excellent views of San Jacinto Peak. I like to run/walk up two trees and then do some more running on the trail systems at the top. Currently there are some overgrown spots, but you can get by with shorts if you don't mind your legs brushing up against some of the grasses that have grown on the side of the trail. The waterfall halfway up is no longer running from what we could tell this past Wednesday.
