Headed up Garnet Peak from Penny Pines. Beautiful addition and the view from the top was unbeatable. Great view of the Salton Sea. Warning: it’s pretty breezy up top.

Very steep and challenging but 100% worth it.

Great place to camp overnight.

Great short hike. Took our younger hikers on this trail and it took a little over an hour to get up to the falls and a little under an hour to get back. Make sure to have the proper shoes as the trail is pretty rocky and on an incline the whole way up. Pack plenty of snacks & water and a hat is a good idea. The trail has no coverage so recommend hiking either early morning or past the noon hour. The falls are a nice and a pleasant reward for making the hike up with plenty of photo spots. Be sure to use the restroom before you head up this trail and a hiking stick might be a good idea as well.

Beautiful view, clean trail, hiking up hill not difficult, excellent for everyday hike.

Great hike - rugged but, worth the effort!

good hike, great views, ruined with a giant satellite at the top.

Great easy hike with a nice waterfall but go early it’s gets crowded quickly lots of dogs

Fantastic hike! We decided to start the loop towards the left, following Backbone trail to the Sandstone Peak. The path was mostly uphill but you get instantly rewarded by beautiful views.

After the trail branches off to the Tri Tips, we followed Mishe Mokwa trail back to the parking lot. MM trail was mostly downhill and led through forest-y patches.

I loved the hike and I was happily tuckered out after finishing the 6 mi loop. However, I took one star off for Mishe Mokwa trail that seemed underwhelming after Backbone trail.

A nice hike with great views the whole time. The climb is uphill all the way to the top. The trail is narrow so watch for mountain bikes, dogs, and other hikers.

Moderate at times a little steep.

Definitely not for beginners.

Hike this right before sunset and watch it at the top! it is beautiful with a beautiful view of the whole city and the hollywood sign and the ocean and I am definitely doing this again.

Great trail if you’re looking for a fast and visually appealing hike. The mines were so fun to explore!

I brought a couple of friends, one who has not visited the park before. We will come back again and bring a bigger group.
