Nice hike. Very narrow trail but good workout. Lots of lizards

A lot of horse poop. Many different trails. Saw a coyote.

Beautiful hike. We walked 3 miles in and turned around. No cell service.

nice easy trail with good views if you want easy, but you can also climb up the ridge fur a much harder hike with an even better view.

Hike it every Monday with a Meetup group. There is always shade after the 1st mile after 5:00pm.

This is always a nice little hike with the kiddos.

love it

Nice slow incline but too populated for our taste.

It’s a nice trail, good workout without being too long. The views are great. I hiked this trail in the evening, there is no shade in the morning. I only saw a king snake but have come across rattlesnakes before in that area.

Definitely easier than other moderate trails for hiking.

Very narrow trail. You have to move over for bikers and others. there are also a lot of sharp turns (blind spots). There are not to many trees or shade.

There were friendly people. This might be a fun trail for mountain bikes but I don't think I will ever go again.

Beautiful hike! Family and kid friendly:) A must do if your in the area!

I very much enjoyed this hike quite peaceful lots of amazing views

peaceful...nice shade area.dirt trails went on top of mountain could of used a hiking pole.

This is a great trail that is easy to navigate. Kids are good for this hike as most of it has overhang to keep you shaded.

A great place to hike and the views are amazing. Highly recommend!

Wow. Nice hike. Loved how steep it was! The only downside is that there is so many different trails you could take that might end up getting you lost. However, it was fun overall!

Went on a mid-morning Saturday, and there were not many people on the trail. Was a bit surprised as the views are gorgeous once you get up into the hills a bit. By the afternoon lots of little lizards were coming out to sun themselves on the trail and my dog was going nuts every 20 feet trying to get at them after they'd scurry back into the brush on the sides of the trail. There are some narrow parts and drop-offs, particularly in the beginning, but the trail really widens out after a while. Could have easily walked four across for most of it. So many bends that you don't want to stop. You want to keep going to find out what's around that next corner. Never made it to the very top, but I plan to return and try to get to the end...if there is one!

Lately I’ve been running these trails at least 3 times a week. I love it out here. There are some areas that are challenging and once you frequent these trails you cannot get lost. The trails will lead you to the Yucaipa Regional Park, Crafton Hills College, Hghwy 38 near Mill creek ranger station. It’s warming up out here so take a Camel Pack.

It was definitely a nice relaxing trail to hike! I would definitely do it again! Plus its so beautiful!

Challenging and fun. Meets up to other trails that I use allowing for shorter or longer hikes.

I've seen kids on the trail but it's not really the best trail for little ones due to its terrain and wildlife so if you have kids keep an eye on them. I've personally ran into mountain lions and coyotes and rattlesnakes.

If you want challenge this is definitely a good trail.

Good trail, the only downside is the amount of dog poo on the trail. Come on people! We parked at the college trailhead lot and started north. At about the halfway point, the trail makes a hard right. This was tough to spot from the rain. The trail has a large rut coming down, my wife and I couldn’t figure out where the trail went from the fire road until I looked at the map and realized that rut from the rain runoff was the trail. You will need plenty of water and good hiking shoes at this point. It seems this part of the trail isn’t as traveled as the first half, so less poo. All in all a great local hike.

Short hike after a late winter snow. Beautiful views from the top. Old Forest Service road I believe. Now has gate with No Trespassing sign. Saw no one.
