Going west to east starts off pretty easy. The farther you get into it the harder it gets. It gets very narrow towards the last 4 miles. Lots of pinstripes and some hairy camber spots. I'm talking about the optional trails, not the fire road. Had a great time today.

NO shade AT ALL. The views are great, but be careful with kids because the trail is narrow in some areas. Parking is easy to find. You do have a view of the freeway and train as you hike. The rocks are fun to climb!

HEAVILY impacted trail. There are always families camping and swimming by the water. You will see a lot of graffiti and a lot of broken glass. Most of the trail consists of rocks and NO shade. The very last portion is all incline. The waterfall is lovely! Many people hang out by the waterfall, so it gets crowded up there, but a nice hike nonetheless.

nice warm day for a hike. little shade so bring lots of water. There are a few rocky spots but worth it when you hit the end of the trail.

great hike for the whole family. beautiful view at the top!

Easy lakeside walk for people of all abilities. Pups welcome but are prohibited from swimming- the trail is patrolled. Path hugs lake with 90% sun cover. Feels more like a tour of Arrowhead realty than a hike. Not for those seeking to escape from civilization.

There is no trailhead or bridge crossing that we could find. We crossed the river at a dam. You wind your way up a wide, dry rocky bed. There is graffiti the whole way up which is unfortunate. The only pro is that someone actually put helpful blue arrows on some rocks that help you find your way near the head of the riverbed. The falls are pretty but there isn’t a lot of lounging space at the falls and can get crowded. We took our 4yo and 6 yo and they did great. Just a little hard to maneuver for them at times the bigger rocks.

Did it in a bone stock 3rd gen 4Runner with street tires. No hairy moments or risky bits. The dust is very light even now when it's been dry for a while which is a good thing. We even tackled a few of the optional problems, though most we could only watch. I'll definitely be coming back here when I've put a little more money in the truck.

I did this trail on the 4th of July weekend. I am estimating it took me around 2 hours. There were not too many flowers but the views were amazing.

Beautiful hike! Uphill pretty much the whole way, nice variety in the terrain. The majority of the trail is carved into the side of the canyon - fairly narrow trail with steep drop-offs, may not make for the best experience for someone who struggles with heights. Gorgeous views, though! Watch out for the biting flies! We went 6/24 and couldn't stop for more than a few minutes at a time because they were so bad. The road in gets pretty rough about two miles from the trail head. We had to pull over in our two-wheel drive SUV and start early. Turned back about a mile from the top when the trail ran though a patch of poison oak with no good go-around (you could probably make it through with good coverage and some care). Still a great hike!

Like others have mentioned, great for beginners. Rockier than expected but nothing you can't manage. I didn't see the trail closed anywhere and I was able to go end to end. Drivers with larger rigs, be ready for one pinstripes. Much of the trail is overgrown but driveable. Lots of bugs this trip but I'll drive it again.

loved it some hard spots but nice all the way a couple of sharp rocks you have to watch out for but nothing airing down your tires will fix

first trail I started on . this is what got me hooked ..pretty easy to do .

This is the first off roading me and my wife have done in a while. Easy trail, some ruts but nothing that a stock 4x4 can't handle. great views. will definitely do it again.
