Great trail! Only passed one person on the way up and it was a Sunday. Very rewarding. The trail isn’t easily marked though and I lost the trail a couple times due to snow. Pretty easy until the last mile and then it is all up hill.

Great! Both for a truck and some hard off-shoots for the jeeps/more intense vehicles. We had a truck and made it fine.

There’s no marked trailhead, but I feel like it’s pretty easy to find. A lot of people are usually here so follow the people. The trail is pretty rocky so wear good shoes! The hike up to the waterfall is pretty tricky and not marked, but follow the water and you’ll find it. I feel like Bonita falls is one of the prettiest falls I’ve seen in SoCal. be careful while in the water because a lot of rocks drop from the top of the waterfall and come down HARD! I definitely recommend this hike! My kids did it super easily.

Was awesome on dirt bikes going all over better than expected

Let me start by saying you need hiking boots because it’s 90 % rocky area. The hike wasn’t far but really rocky. The view was nice and was the weather was perfect for mid February with a nice waterfall. I was surprised to see Big horn sheep out there, it was amazing because it’s so awesome to see them so close up. I’d take this hike again soon.

All, my information, based on my own hiking and the hiking of a friend just two weeks ago, is that this trail is NOT private property and is NOT technically closed to hiking. (We have regularly hiked this route for many years.) The property immediately beside the road at the lower section is indeed private on both sides and has been marked as such for several years; the owner on one side has recently installed much larger signage and at first glance one could interpret them to include the Forest Service road (although the signage is in fact beside and not on the road); further up the road are signs beside (not on) the road. The “private road” sign refers to the driveway that starts immediately right of the Forest Service road. [It might be possible the status of the road has changed but, unless the Forest Service advises otherwise, it seems the confusion simply originates from the adjacent property owner’s new signage.] The above being said, the road does have (a) a large washout from Winter 2019 that was not repaired and (b) numerous downed trees near the beginning of the trail originating from the Thanksgiving and Christmas 2019 storms. That is the reason the gate is closed. Hiking is possible, although the downed trees indeed make the bottom of the road rather unpleasant.

Been up here quite a few times in the Razor, in snow and in good weather. Great climb, lots of fun. One of the best times we went was a pre-dawn ride to watch the sunrise from one of the high points.

Decent trail! Lots of people drive it... so be prepared to get dusty as they drive by because the hike is along a dirt road... which usually I’m not a fan of but the view was beautiful the whole entire time! It’s February, but a sunny day and we went at about noon, sunshine the whole way! Then shady on the way back (after 2pm) because we hung at the top for a while and watched the paragliders - also cool. But for someone like me that is out of shape, it was a solid workout where I still wasn’t dead after. Perfect distance too.

In the beginning it was a bit tricky to cross the water. From there you are just walking over rocks and there’s no real trail. Once I got to the mountain side it was a beautiful peaceful forest. Very easy from then on and the pleasure of a small waterfall before the main one.

This is such a great trail; especially for anyone who is learning to learn how to off-road. The main path I would consider moderate in difficulty. So if your new, just take your time and go slow and don’t come alone. There are tons of side paths for the guys with serious equipment and want to do some climbing (and they meet right back up with the main path). So if you want to hang with your Jeep buddy; perfect place for both parties.

Great and easy beginner trail - there was no snow or ice today. There was a tree fallen on the trail about 6.5 miles in, which was basically the top of the mountain. Not too bad, could easily be done in a stock Jeep. The view at the top is worth it and you can expect to be there and back in about an hour and a half.

Nice short easy loop. The split to the right looks like an old road and is easy to follow. Where the trail joins together to the lookout point, it has lots of loose rocks and thorns crowd the trail, but was easy enough to get through. When you get to the end you can see another lookout point below lookout below that must be part of another trail. Going back and taking the other fork, there are some turns you can miss and it’s was a bit overgrown, but nothing to hard to navigate.

There is nothing bad about this trail. It just had little to offer. I did 7 miles out from the 15 freeway. The freeway noise can be heard a long ways out. It can be seen even longer. After the 1st 5 miles it started climbing and the views got better. Next time I’ll start where the trail meets 138 and go west from there.

The trail is not too challenging. My group and I were on 2H a majority of the time. There is an off-shoot pretty early on where you can have some 4WD action. The trail is pretty overgrown. Our group got pinstriped pretty good. We turned around at the sign of ice/slush. Overall, there weren't many off-shoots to practice your 4WD. It was a bumpy/rocky fire road most of the time.

This is a nice hike, beautiful trees and not challenging. But we were unable to find a trail down to the lookout point. The trail takes you to a lovely viewpoint, and you can *see* the lookout spot below. But there was no way to get down there (and we backtracked a few times trying to find a trail or path, to no avail. The trail is poorly marked, physically, so no help there, either. All in all, a nice hike, but you cannot actually get to the lookout.
