Nice little afternoon walk. Lots of wildlife. Good for kids and dogs. There are horses on this path occasionally. Also, during the Spring season there are hives along the trailhead. Watch for signs.

Hidden gem in San Dimas! Family and pet friendly, highly recommend for a easy to moderate hike. Will definitely be coming back with friends and family.

Can get some nice views here in the winter when the air is clear. I've hiked the entire length of the trail from Glendora Ridge Road all the way down to the neighborhood at the end of Wheeler. Seen rattlesnakes, people on dirt bikes, bowhunters, and once thought I saw a mountain lion, but it was dark and the possible mountain lion was quick. Scary. Too bad the fire trail by Marshall Canyon has now become private. Takes one more access point to this trail system away.

Not much to it, but it is a nice pleasant walk. Seen deer up here and known people that have seen bear and coyotes as well. Watch out for poison oak and cactus!

Great time, kids loved it! Will go back again.

Fun little trail with no real climbs. Lots of stream crossings and lots of squirrels running cross the trail so keep an eye out! If you haven’t done it before and you’re in the area it’s worth a look but I’d rather go to bonelli~

So beautiful!

Love this place! Went here for the first time and it’s a perfect place to take my little pug (who can’t endure long, challenging trails). This place has good views and it’s so green. It may be confusing to find at first because it’s located behind the nature park and there’s no obvious signs indicating where the trail starts. However, locals are very friendly and willing to help if you ask. Some parts of the trail is pretty narrow, so this place isn’t stroller or toddler friendly.

Lovely setting! Went there with my 5 yo and 10 yo...both managed very well though we only did 3 miles round trip. You can come across some lovely spots to set out and enjoy a snack. Wear older sneakers as after some rainy weather they’re bound to get a tad ruined. Gotta love nature! Best therapy!

Nice shaded trail. Wear boots or hiking shoes. I wore Nike running shoes and my feet got wet from crossing the stream. Overall, fun with pretty scenery.

On March 17th I completed this hike with my husband and our friend, Alex. Cute and quick little trail that took us past cactus and sunflowers. It had been raining recently so everything was very green. Definitely muddy in a few spots but that didn't slow our progress. This would be a good hike for little kids. We enjoyed this easy-to-access, fun hike!

It had different palm trees on the hike as well as butterflies and frogs. It also some flowing water. The trail was nice but at a certain point we got lost and didn't know how to proceed

Awesome trail! Lots of graffiti though.

This brought me back to my high school days.. Walnut Creek “el ton pook” haha shaded for the most part.. the hike was easy, had a few swings, I’m glad we had that incline on the way back to get my heart rate going. Good for all ages and animals.

A great trail for the whole family. Generally a pretty easy trail with a quarter mile hill at one end. You can make this trail a little more challenging by running it or pushing your pace while walking. A lot of shaded areas and fun little streams to cross with well placed rocks. There are parking areas every one mile or so. The main parking area next to the 210/57 fwy is often full during peak times and is regularly monitored by sheriffs dept. A great trail for a 6 mile round trip with beautiful scenery.

Excellent! A lot of shade, keep you from the sunburn. And the creek gives you some humidity.

Very nice walk. Good for dogs as long as you don't mind them getting muddy.

really like this trail, my kids love it also the hills the flowers and the lil streams.

Nice quiet easy well maintained shady trails requires your balance skills to across creeks / streams safely without shoes getting wet.

Several river crossing made it a bit unpleasant. Otherwise I would give it a 5

good for everyone!

good for all levels

Loved it!! It is kid friendly! Fairly easy!

Free parking. Great trail if you have younger ones. Plenty of coverage and shade. Be sure to pack a light snack and always water. Kids will enjoy crossing the small creeks on this path.

This trail is very pretty. But if you are not fond of crossing creeks with slippery rocks I do not recommend

Pretty much flat but a lot of different mini trails. Hard to stay on the right track. Small stream that you have to cross a lot. Lots of trees and shade. Good for dogs. A lot of different entrances and exits.

Great trail run with my dog. Lots of shade and water. Many friendly hikers of all abilities. I did not see one restroom or any trash cans. The trail was surprisingly clean despite the lack of amenities. Maybe they were there and I missed them. All in all, a great place to hike/run.

Nice trail! Some steep uphill portions, but towards the second half of hike you will be treading mostly downhill. It wasn't the most gorgeous hike in the area, but it had some nice views. If you get lost on which direction to go (looks like there's multiple trails connected to this) be sure to refer to the app and you'll find your way around just fine. No trash, very clean! Looks like the area gets a good amount of traffic due to the connection of trails. I would return to this trail.

If you follow this map to the end, it dead ends at someone's property and the fences and metal gates are all locked. We had to go through a chain link fence and hop a property gate to get out. The rest of the trail is legit, it's just where this trail shows it ends. About .5 mile from the end just turn around and go back :)
