Was a good way to get back into hiking after the long winter. Lots of people there but that’s to be expected, very easy with well marked trails

It's a nice hike without a lot of hills. There are a few body's of water and I see tons of deer and coyotes. I don't know what that other person is talking about on pavement. There is no pavement.

A gnarly hike coming down, icy and muddy. Otherwise, a beautiful view at the top! :)

For what this trail is (easily accessible, family focused, educational, etc) it is great. Definitely not a "hike", or a challenge but for a short jaunt it packs in some interesting views.

Good moderate hike. Some sun exposure so depending on your comfort pick an early time!

Beautiful views but it’s not a hike

Great trail! Lots of mud. Gets tough at the end, but worth it with the 360 view of the mountains!

Hiked this last fall with a friend - a little bit icy towards the top, but overall a fantastic experience and great views! Miss New England

Excellent trail, just the right amount of scenery and exercise.

Must see, beautiful trail and well maintained, along with informational posts around the loop. Several raging waterfalls just add to the tranquil setting. Another hike adjoining this trail to add extra walking/hiking..Family friendly, along with parking and bathroom facilities (however, closed up when went yesterday 4/23)

This trail actually came out to be closer to 4ish miles and the elevation gain was really not bad! The trail to the cabins/ruins is packed, you could probably even get by without added traction but it did help me (microspikes)! After the cabins I'd recommend snowshoes/skis as it's not packed, I tried to get up to the mining stuff and post-holed the whole time so I turned around. Beautiful views of the mountains both in front and behind, a really good sized parking lot (it does come up on you kind of fast so be prepared!) with no facilities but definitely a great hike! I'd love to see it in summer with no snow too!

Did this hike on April 23. Beauty day, hot and sunny. Easy in and out. Took an hour and a half round trip that’s including eating some snacks at the arch. Definitely worth it the scenery is amazing!!

Hiked this on April 20. Didn’t start until 12:50 but that’s because I flew into town in the morning. As others indicate, you will need protection from the sun. I had long sleeves and a wide brim hat. Nothing on the calves though so they got a little toasty. The hike took me 2:35 to the top and 2:20 down. I saved the “mine shafts” for the way down. There are some great views to be had throughout the entire hike and lots of wildflowers this time of year. I didn’t really think the water requirements were that exceptional - I think I had 3 liters overall. Granted had I done this in July or August it would be more. I personally thought the uphill on the second peak was the toughest - that’s where I had to stop the most to rest. While not the most physically difficult trail around, the technical (sure footing) difficulty is enough that you need some experience to expect to do this trail in a reasonable amount of time. It is a good idea to go early though it was nice seeing my last other hiker by mile 4 as a result of starting so late.

Excellent Hike. Got a relatively early start in the morning from Icehouse Canyon parking lot. Went up to Icehouse Saddle, over to the Telegraph and Thunder Mtn, turned around and tagged Timber mtn on the return. Car to car in about 6 hours, right before it started to sprinkle. Great views and not too many people on this Saturday morn.

I go here every Sunday for Mountain biking and I gotta say this is one of the best trails ever in the SoCal, nice challenging uphill with a technical downhill you can’t go wrong with this trail, in summer go early cause it gets hot real quick up there.

One of my favorite hikes

I loved this trail, it wasn’t too busy and dogs are allowed off leash.

Very unique. I have a very healthy fear of heights... mainly vertigo, but I managed. The views are spectacular.

Beautiful trail. Took two hours at a reasonable pace. Hit the trail after 3 days of heavy rain, so there was no avoiding getting wet crossing 5 roaring streams. The overlook is awe inspiring, so be sure to take that little five minute detour. The trail markers can get confusing, as there are 3 at times: green rectangle, green diamond, and red rectangle. The park needs to redo the trail map so the markers match what the map says there are, as the map says Coosa is blue. Do this one counter clockwise, as clockwise would be like climbing stairs. Definitely going back.

When it rains, the farm that manages trail limits public use but allows paid visitors who are part of a tour through. Lots and lots of tourist - so if you’re looking for a nature hike go elsewhere. If you’re just breezing through, this is a nice stopover

this trailhead is beautiful! cuts into the backside of glendora mtn road. kinda gives you a different view of the mountains. Takes a while like 6 hrs. on a fireroad, never too crowded. Don't go alone on this one though. It's moderate and slightly remote.

it's just ok. I mean if you just want to putz around. it's pretty and you can always go down to the swing at the creek.

Distance was actually over 10 miles. Lots of unmarked forks so bring a map! Most of the trail (probably 99%) is in direct sunlight. Views at the top were great, but the journey there wasn't. Don't do this hike in the summer if you decide to go.

Good exercise hike. Enough steepness to give you a workout and some semi-old growth trees to salute along the way. Of course you will take water.

First time hiking a real mountain and I’m officially hooked. Went on 4/22/18 and lucked out with a very clear day. Views of Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, and Mt. Rainier. Summiting was an awesome experience!!!

Lake wasn’t much to see, but the hike up was beautiful and exhilarating.

Really enjoyed hiking this loop. Great scenery and pretty neat watching the climbers. Only 3 other hikers on a nice April morning, but it did get busy in the parking lot as more people rolled in. Just get there early, or camp nearby as we did. Brought the dogs, they enjoyed it too, despite prickly pears.
