You have to be an Arrowhead Lake Association member to get on this trail.

Great hike, moderate. Great views. Good workout.
I did not give a 5 starts only because it could have better directional signs. Overall, I would recommend it, and most definitely I will definitely do it again.

Pretty nice and easy trail some challenging areas but nothing for a Cherokee XJ, compared to last months Cleghorn run this was a piece of cake.

Time: 6ish
Temperature: high 70s
Trails were pretty smooth and easy to walk on.
Beautiful walk/hike around lake arrowhead. Gorgeous views of the lake and high end homes that surround it.
Just be careful with all the distractions from the absolutely amazing houses you will see.
Mosquitos do come out at dusk.

A couple weeks ago, I parked near the bottom and went running on up the paved road. There were so many Monarch butterflies everywhere.

I live about 5 minutes from this trail and it never gets old. great workout and super fun and technical downhill.

Best route for a bike is to ride up KP road and down the trail. Use a bell or even a whistle as there are a lot of hikers.

While generally down hill, it is an enduro run with more pedal strokes than you might imagine. there are some natural drops and jumps to be had and lots of teethe rattling rocky sections.

Despite the description, this is a legal mountain bike trail.

Awesome trail, as easy or as challenging as you want with all the off shoots. The views are absolutely beautiful.

This trail is great for beginners. Very rocky at some points. The only thing I didnt like was all the bushes sticking out into the road. Got the side of my trucked scratched up pretty bad and it’s unavoidable. Also be careful lots of rattlesnakes

took my 2007 Nissan Titan 3 inch lift 35 only had to back up and change route ones due to trail conditions otherwise had little trouble going through the trail. manageable in a two-wheel drive if you have decent tires and ground clearance.

Awesome hike! Very scenic with fantastic views. Added bonus to see a deer on the trail! Lots of Chipmunks too.

Gradually inclines. Easy to find off the freeway. Views are amazing! Better then I expected. Wear good shoes and watch your step because some areas have a steep fall. No shade. Free parking. Had two rattlesnake "warning" encounters. Didn't see one though. Over all easy trail for all ages. Definitely will be going again.

Beautiful scenery and homes, nice walk. Park to left as you drive in and the walk along the fence towards the bay. Follow it around to the left and pick up the trail along the coast of the lake

Had a fun time running this trail in my 2WD locked 4runner. Took about half the off-shoots, turned around on a few but still had a blast.

pretty steep grade. had frye boots on so made it most of way up...it just kept going! only a lil parking along road across street from land trust/strawberry peaks sign & old adobe looking entrance gate/ wall...but only 1 other person was there when we parked. really scenic, went up twice as quick as descent, cuz dry & loose underfoot. way cool, beautiful!

this trail is best when you do every single off shoot you see instead of the boring fire road. jeeps are able to take all the offshoot lines, which isn't hard if you already have off road experience. however, in a Toyota truck, or 4 runner, the hardest lines will definitely 3 wheel due to lack of articulation with IFS... unless you disconnect front sway bar. the only challenging portions are towards the end, which is also the best part to finish the trail. lockers are not needed here. I've been here twice and towards the end Toyota guys crowd up to watch the jeeps do the steep rutted off shoots. gotta love having a jeep!

This is a fun trail to be on. There a lot of off shoots to practice and learn how to off road but if you are not comfortable with that, then take the main trail. I did the trail in a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee with open diffs and the car handled the trail effortlessly. Also on the weekends the trail is kind of crowed so bear in mind that you may get stuck behind a group that takes up the whole trail.

Just finished this trail on 4/28/18. loved it, I used my stock 2000 dodge dakota 5.9L V8 4x4 on this trail. So much fun will be doing it again! I have 32 inch tires on 15 inch wheels when I was doing this trail.

It was a really nice trail today. Not too tight with enough room to get around someone. The forest department has provided a very nice staging area off the 138 about 2.5 miles east of the 15fwy. On the 138 there's a forestry sign that says something about Cleghorn staging area next right. When you see the sign, they mean the next right!! A dirt road about 200 feet past the sign. We were towing a green sticker vehicle and were a little concerned when we saw a sign that said no green sticker vehicle on this road. But I guess the sign only referred to the.25 mile dirt road to the staging area. Trash cans and toilets at the staging area--very nice. My buddy and I only had one complaint---people will you please take your trash out with you!!! If you can carry in the beer cans, food wrappers, etc., you can certainly get your shit back home! I am a backpacker for 35 years but the body is having trouble carrying the load, so we're learning the off road experience. We brought one kitchen trash bag for our trash and whatever other trash we may have come across. Crap, we should have brought a dump truck. If we all can't start taking care of our off road areas, the government is just going to say, screw you guys, we're shutting it down!! Let's show a little concern for our wilderness!! Enjoy the drive!!!!

Great trail. Perfect for our 5 and 6 year old daughters. They loved it.

Great Trail! Went up in a 2wd Taco, there are some pretty big ruts from the rain but they are pretty easily maneuverable. Further up the trail it gets pretty rocky so be sure to take it slow, especially if you don’t have a skid plate. It gets somewhat narrow so I did get scratched up a bit. :)

We couldn't find where to start. We were at where the map said but there was no where to park at all so we left.

Very well maintained off road trail. Plenty of off-shoots that are much more challenging if you choose. I would totally recommend for any Jeep!

it's badass but really rocky at some points

this is a really great Trail perfect for beginner off-roaders like myself. Unfortunately because of the recent rains about a quarter of a mile into the trail there are several foot wide gashes that extend the width of the trail. my stock 4Runner was not able to continue past that point but I could easily see how if it weren't for those obstacles this would be a great beginner Trail. I plan on coming back once those obstacles are no longer there.

Great trail. Main trail is easy, but those who want to be challenged can take the alternative routes. These alternative trails tye back to the main trail. Some alternate routes are moderate some are hard core. Take those that meet your rigs ability and skip those that are too much.

This trail is primarily a rocky rutted ATV/Jeep trail along a long ridge line though much if it is now blocked from traffic. There are some beautiful views of the mountains. Not a bad route for trail running.
