Hiking

Pretty good! I did this one counter-clockwise and it’s nice and covered for the first mile and a half or so, some fun switchbacks and pretty good views on the way up and on the way down. The ridge is all sun, and there’s some 280 noise, but it’s a nice hike on the easier side of moderate I’d say. I also went down through Dick Bishop trail which just seemed nicer than walking down the paved street. I jogged the ridge and part of the way down and it took me just over an hour.

Kid friendly really nice trail by the river.. water was really cold though but still kids were able to put their feet in. Nicely shade. A few trash around but very enjoyable

Beautiful and intense hiking! Bring lots of sunscreen and bug spray. The first 3 miles are pretty much a steep incline, but it's the hardest part of the trail.

HikingNo shade

Tough trail! Started counterclockwise, minimal to no shade, tough incline most of the way up. LA views and Hollywood sign views at the top are awesome. Worth the trek! Took 3:15min with stops in the shade along the way and a 10min break at the top for a snack. Would recommend early or later when the heat isn’t too strong.

This trail is right by our house and we love it. Best times are early in the morning (before 10) or after 6pm otherwise it’s in full sun and too hot for me. Good workout. Takes us about 1 1/2 hours. Easy street parking. Can be crowded but usually it’s not too bad, especially in the evening.

This is a great trail but hollllllllly crap it straight up hill. If you are not experienced just be prepared to walk up him majority of the time because I was not. The lake is worth every second!

Absolutely beautiful but be aware of a few things. 1. It’s 7 miles round trip, not the 5-something on AllTrails. This route stops way short of the actual lighthouse. No idea why it’s drawn that way 2. Checking the tide schedule is a must if you plan to walk on the beach. Not passable in high tide 3. Beware of sleeping elephant seals

Did this trail today. It was an awesome trail. My gps showed it as closer to 10 miles round trip trail is a bit overgrown, but nice. Start early!!!! And come back early. We headed up about 9:30, got to the falls just before noon. I am a bit of a slow hiker. Swam and enjoyed lunch and headed back around 1:30. Almost had a dang heat stroke coming down event though I had drank 2 liters of water up, about a liter while swimming and filtered to bring 2 liters down... once the sun is over the trail, there is very little shade and it can get hot. I also had a wet rag around my neck and still overheated. Awesome trail just plan to not be on ur way back during the hottest part of the day. I will definitely do it again and make time to explore around the falls more. You can park next to Potwisha campsite 14 there’s room for about 5 or 6 cars or you can park across the generals highway at the “dump station” and walk in like we did. It’s only a little bit further to do it that’s way.

Walking

I highly recommend this trail for biking, walking, or running. It is a very, very easy trail, paved and suitable for any fitness level. It's mostly shady. Even though it's well trafficked, it never felt crowded. I would recommend heading to the beach, have lunch, then head back leisurely.

It’s beautiful and fun. It can be a little gravely/slippery but it’s nice. It’s a good opportunity to get close to the native Torrey Pine trees. My friend tried to swing on a makeshift swing and fell, but otherwise the hike went without a hitch.

Classic hike with beautiful views and a nice little workout. Nice wide paths. Typically go on special occasions like Christmas, NYE and 4th of July. Have completed this trail four times and it’s always a treat.

I’ll say that this probably would have been a wonderful hike, if it were not the middle of July and 105 degrees out. We were attracted to it because it seemed ‘mostly shaded’ and I really wanted to hike. But it was a bad idea from the get go... and we had two Hydro Flask bottles and it was simply not enough. And parts of the trail on the way back (Clark) were not well marked and had full sun exposure. There was about a half hour were we were trying to catch our breath, huddled in the shade of a large rock, lost, and worried that we were gonna run out of water and die! Long story short, this hike is not a good idea for the average semi-fit person when it’s that hot, despite being 75% shaded, due to sun exposure and significant elevation gain. Glad to have made it. The drinking fountain at the end was a life saver.

Great trail- Easy to find. Previous review about starting to the right of the creek is spot-on. A bit overgrown and tricky to follow in some places. Wear long-sleeves and leggings / pants to protect your skin from the brush and bugs. Shaded the first part of the trail. Creek water very cold and great for dipping scarf in to keep cool. Will want to hike this in the fall / spring with melting snow.

It could get really hot when there’s no shade. Make sure bring enough water (40 oz at least per person) if you want to hike this one. It’s pretty steep downhills and uphills.

Never made it to the trail because it was over run with people hiking in Modelos at 7am! Trashing the place. It literally looked like the morning after a frat party. Trash, clothes, beer bottles everywhere. I wish they would control this. They are destroying the area. Ended up doing a hike a little bit down the mountain and my car got broken into and all my stuff stolen. Steer clear of Azusa trails

Really enjoy this trail and it’s one of our favorite in the Bay Area. Lots of shade and good variety between trees, rocks, elevation, sand, views, waterfall, etc. Make sure to have an idea of the trail loops as there are a few bridges where’s it’s easy to take a wrong turn. The signs are super clear but it’s easy to miss it in all excitement and fun :) Also since this is very popular it also gets very busy from 9am onwards and parking lots are full by 10am. Have fun!

Boots are a must. Well maintained. Loaded with people. Lakes are absolutely stunning and the views are breathtaking. Trail to cold boiling lake was rocky at times. The sulfur springs were intriguing. We had a blast! Make sure you bring a lot of water and take into account the elevation.

Saw a Coyote just when I started. Nice hike overall. No shade and some serious incline, so it’s not as easy as it’s written. Easy to go off trail as you will be enjoying the views but you can come back to the trail easily and get more done that way :)

Great tail! So many awesome views of half dome, El Capitan an Yosemite falls on the trail would definitely recommend. Definitely start early to avoid crowds. But still not too crowded. A lot of the trail is shaded but also a lot of it isn’t so make sure to wear sun protection.
