Great hike! Rocky and no shade. So be prepared. Perfect for beginners such as myself. Can’t wait to take my kids and husband up next time.

The entire east side of Rimcrest Drive (facing up hill) is free public parking from Fairmont Blvd all the way up to the trail head entrance. The west side and all of the side streets (the homes), is permit only. Parking is very easy Monday to Thursday, a little busier on Fridays, but can be busy Saturday and Sunday when the weekend warriors are out.

***One of the best hikes that I've ever done, consistent climbs with gorgeous views and pristine natural beauty. We summited the Deer Springs Peak, which is a total of 12.4 miles from the parking lot (round trip). Just 2 important tips:
*The parking lot sign says Deer Springs Trail, don't get confused, it's the same as San Jacinto Trail, they coincide after a few miles.
*A permit is required (as per signage) on the trail, which is free and can be acquired at the Ranger Station which is a mile down the road on your left hand side right after you pass Idyllwild's downtown square ish.
Overall, a must do hike, I'm eager to see how it looks in the spring

We didn’t have as much time as we would have liked, but we will definitely be back. This trail has lots of gnarly rocks on either side, which I enjoy. There was a little scrambling to be done in the way to Goat Rock especially, but nothing too bad. You can see across Monterey Bay from the top of Goat Rock!

Nothing like it

Strenuous hike but so so so worth it. The switchbacks really got me but once we got to the chains I started enjoying it a lot. Not to mention the views are STUNNING. It is a scary hike so would only recommend to experienced hikers. Part of my family stayed back once the chains started

The route to the mine is quite crowded and looks like it burned a year or two ago. Either there's no trail up to the mine or we missed it, but it seems like most people go to look at it anyway. After the mine there are far fewer people and you get vistas for a bit before walking back among some joshua trees

My favorite trail and this area! There's plenty of offshoots from the main trail to explore. Lots of people walk their dogs here - my dog loves it too!

great hike but water was not running was all dried up
great views

wish there was an easy way to get to the falls so I could take my folks.

Visited in June. A spur of the moment decision when we were driving by and it was very busy. Almost didn't find a spot to park near the start of the walk to the lighthouse. Easy paved trail to the top of the stairs but a lot of narrow stairs to take to get down to the actual light. You have to at least walk to the top where the visitors center is because you can't see the lighthouse just driving by. The stairs were only difficult due to the amount of people going up and down and the wind which was blowing like crazy! However, the view was beautiful and I loved learning the history of the lighthouse and it's keepers.

beautiful views of the ocean and half Moon Bay.

Good short hike but kinda out of the way from most of the park. It's worth it if you have a few days to spend at Lassen NP. Going up is not as easy as it looks though. Just take your time and you'll get there and be rewarded with spectacular views.

Awful! 3 break ins during daylight and one couple was only away for 30 mins! We ended up leaving after seeing the damage people were doing! Didn’t feel safe at all! The drive made us feel like we were in a 3rd world country is was so gross and run down!

This hike definitely had accurate reviews.. definitely challenging. I went on a day when it had not rained and it is extremely muddy at the beginning, then goes to dry and crumbly up on the ridge, so the hike is slippery pretty much the entire time. Be sure to wear shoes with some good grip. The views were absolutely amazing and time to hike was about 5-6 hours. Helpful to use this map as there are a couple trails that could lead you in the wrong direction. Overall, definitely unforgettable!

Not too difficult but by far, one of my favorite hikes......you better like stairs though! Make sure to pick a warm day to do this trek because it'll add to the overall beauty while keeping you energized to continue.
