I started this around 6pm and was in the shade the whole time which was nice. Single track, many flat portions. The beginning of this hike is not so great for the first 10 minutes as you walk by some construction and very soft dirt. The beginning of the fort trail past the construction was not super obvious.. After that it’s great. The last 50 feet or so are pretty steep to get to the top.

Super easy hike. A beautiful view of the valley and a beautiful walk through the canyon lots of shade and green plants. Hiked it in early July starting temp 95 ended temp 85.

Good trail, path could be a little confusing but luckily for us we had someone there with previous experience to guide us. Not very much water at all this time of year but still little streams. Although it was an awesome trail it’s probably a lot better in the colder months. Make sure to bring lots of water and maybe some bug repellent. Overall a good experience.

Love this hike!! Try and go twice a week. My once good friend showed me this place and it’s wonderful!! Many different ways you can take. Always some what of a challenge, what I need. Saw a rattlesnake for the first time today. Best to go early.

Beautiful flowers. Only fishing pond had water. Nice hike!

It's a nice scenic Trail that rises up through a Canyon and ends within walking distance of a nice restaurant in Angeles Oaks. I can see hikers and bikers on the trail. Good for all ages. moderate. Always carry water

Not really a mountain biking trail. Wide trails probably ideal for horseback or walking. Couldn’t find any exciting areas for biking. Not likely to head back for biking.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.
