Beautiful hike with plenty of shady and sunny spots. Probably wouldn’t do this in the summer when it’s really hot but my husband, 9month old corgi and I had a blast! Be prepared for damn feet as there were several streams to cross towards the beginning of the trail

Nice well maintained trail. Challenging climb to the top but really worth it especially on a clear day. Best to do it early in the day as it can get quite hot. Took about 3 hours round trip.

All Pave road, reaching the top to see potato chip rock was rewarding. It wasn’t much of a beautiful hike for me maybe it’s because of the paved road so it didn’t feel natural to me. I think the Poway side will be much better.

Iron Mountain trail is amazing. The view is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to hike it again.

Great hike, perfect weather

Are they being strict with citations? I really want to see the waterfall! It seems like a lot but of other people still go without an issue?

have been going for years love it. it's pave so great for running. city view is amazing

I loved this hike! It starts out with a steep fire road that is nothing spectacular scenery wise but is a great booty burner. You get to the top of that and it’s single track hiking the rest of the way. Views are incredible and the closer you get to the peak the more steep and technical it gets. At the top there are big boulders to climb on and we found a geocaching jar which was neat to add our names to. It’s not well traveled which is awesome, we only saw one other person the whole time! You do need $3 to park in the lot below the trail. I will be back!

You can take the paved road all the way up the mountain or you could start at the dog park and take the dirt path up halfway. The dirt path is a much harder, true hike that is quiet but it eventually lands you on the paved road. It smelled like dog poop and urine in a few areas and it is heavily trafficed by pedestrians, strollers and bicycles.

Definitely a shorter hike, but still worth wild. The view at the end was incredible.

This hike was the first one where I experienced a designer trail and it was fun. A beautiful hike especially eating my lunch on top.

This is a great hiking trail around the Visitor Center. Don't forget to check out the Grinding Rocks trail off this trail - beautiful layers of rocks along a stream of water. Easy hike & fun!

first one of the year, great temp

The forest is lush and the newts are frolicking! There are currently (January) a dozen or so stream crossings; knee-high water at one ford. I clocked the loop at 9 mi, 1145 ft, 3.5 hrs.

Not easy for people who have a harder time getting around (small children, older people.) Very pretty once you get to the bottom. A little bit of tide pool life. Very very rocky and hard to get around. Overall cute short hike.

A hidden gem in Corona!

Great hike - rugged but, worth the effort!
