This trail is extremely overgrown, and not a typical trail...more like a deer trail at some parts. I highly suggest pulling up AllTrails and following along the entire time, otherwise you'll be like us and backtrack alot. It was a great workout and very steep. You'll see some beautiful views.

Absolutely beautiful views! Veryyyy steep, (climbing up the mountain)Not much parking at the bottom, had to park alongside the road but it worked out just fine. I absolutely recommend, can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful views. Lightweight fire road with more aggressive off-shoots all along the main road.

Easy to get to from Rancho Cucamonga. Looking for places like this to take our dog. Don’t go expecting a strenuous hike. On All Trails it says “Easy” for a reason. Felt safe because the USA Forestry station is there. I will go back.

This was my first trail jeeping (noob), 11 Rubicon 4 inch lift on 35s. for the most part this trail has a main fire road that is mostly flat dirt with a steady incline and you have the option to go on the more difficult climbs. i went off the map provided on the app and as i said the first 2/3 of the trail had the options to do difficult climbs but the last third of the trail had me sweating bullets because there is no turning back and it gets eaven more difficult, reguardless i had lots of fun and was a great first learning experience. I would had felt more comfortable if i had another vehicle with me as there is no way to winch yourself out. also the map provided is wrong, there is no looparound trail , at tge top 3 tabs (Reviews, photos, recordings) go to recordings and user "back light" posted tge correct map trail.

Went to hike Lake Arrowhead on 8/17/18 and were told it was a private lake and we were not allowed on the property. I did not see that listed in any of the previous reviews. We were very disappointed.

I would not consider this hike a work out but it does get your heart rate up if you continually stay to the left and walk over the peaks. It gets a little sketchy up there because your walking backbones in the heavy wind on top which adds an element of excitement. Watch your step on the ways down though it can get sandy and steep. It does have some great views of the obscure rock formations and being somewhat of a rock hound and geology nut it makes it a really nice 45 minute escape from the rat race. We did catch a really cool horned toad last time out. I’ll post some pics.

Parking was an issue. The actual parking area was chaired off so had to park on side of highway.
Good trail for beginning hickers. I would recommend starting trail in counter clockwise direction. Ascent is much more gradual and we had a 4 year old. There were some beautiful OLD pines and overlook was beautiful of the San Bernardino valley.

Went to the the trail discovered it was a private trail. Very disappointed

An Awesome Pit stop for those looking for an easy Half hour hike on a hill Top. May look boring but once on top there are beautiful Views of Rock formations and the entrance to the wilderness

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

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.

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. Seems there are two listings for this trail, Cleghorn Loop and Cleghorn Ridge.

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 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.

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

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.

fun trail but can get a little busy on the weekend. be mindful of oncoming traffic, don't go too fast. has side obstacles to try. it's fun to see all the jeeps do their thing.

Though the distance was long and incline was steady this was a fairly easy hike due to the wide dirt trail. The views were beautiful.

Quick hike with my boys.

This is a killer little hike. It is a work out that is worth the views!!!

A great family hike!!! Small kids can do this hike. Great views for sure. Always wanted to check out the lookout point but never had and so glad that I did.

This is a great hike if your looking for a good workout and have done the Heart Rock hike so many times that your looking for a good alternative. This hike starts at the trail head for Heart Rock but instead follow the paved service road up. The dirt trail begins when you hit the sewer plant it will be to the left. From there you go "UP". This is where the workout begins. Follow the trail all the way to Cedarpines Park. from there follow the roads out until you hit another dirt trail taking you the last little hike up. There you come to a large set of boulders, perfect to take a long earned rest. From there follow the paved road down until you hit a dirt road on the right. There you follow a ridge down with views of VOE. Just keep going until you came back from where you started.

great trail and trip this past Saturday 1 20 18 .... kids enjoyed the jeep 4x4 ride.

Nice little loop for a quick jaunt. Vegetation is starting to recover from the Blue Cut Fire. Area is healing, but the iconic rocks are great for photo opportunities.
