Great short hike with view of the city

Great views!!! Upper half of the hike was beautiful but stopped in an uneventful way. Had to hike off trail a bit to get to see the highest view of the lake!

Connect with Snyder to get great views back down to the campground!!

Beautiful trail. Not to difficult even if you’re out of shape. A few good hill climbs, but overall gorgeous and very fun

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

Beautiful view at the top, took an hour up & down.

Trails could use better signs. At the trail head you start on asphalt and we continued on asphalt until hitting a dead end. We missed the entry onto a dirt trail and had to double back. Parking was full even at 10am on a Tuesday. Scenery was stunning. We only hiked about 2.5 miles in. It is a strenuous hike. Lots of steep switchbacks and jagged rock on the trail. Bring trekking poles! Lots of poison oak so take care to stay in the trail. No ticks or mosquitoes (yet). There is a good amount of unshaded trail so be prepared for sunburn and higher temperatures than you see around the falls.

Bike friendly. If hiking, be sure to go in the opposite direction because trail is narrow & bikers have city manners. Decent trail for inner city hiking. Easy to moderate

To be fair, I wasn’t able to actually run the trail, so the score is for the views alone. And minus points for not being able to actually run it. The guard posted near the parking said there was filming going on ahead, and that SWAT was doing drills as well. But the views were amazing...There’s a lot of new construction going on just north of the 118. I didn’t see anywhere to pull off on the side of the road and park either, like the reviews state.
And parking is $5.
Would like to return and explore the area. Just have to remember my 5 bucks.

This is a short but enjoyable trail. The views of the Rio Grande Gorge are spectacular as at times the canyon drops off right next to the trail all the way down to the river.I would suggest a afternoon hike as the light is spectacular.

Very easy to follow, I even went off the trail a little and saw a couple snakes and frogs. There is a small creek that you follow almost the entire time.

Dogs off leash on every visit to this park. My horse and i were attacked by a Pitbull off leash, and many friends with horses have also been attacked, as have their own dogs. The dog park fence is too low, dogs jump out and attack. If this wasn't bad enough.... the water in the lake is toxic, full of bacterial. Just a puncture wound inn this water can have deadly consequence, and has. The frisbee golf course is a terrifying thing, but the model planes, drones, and parasailers with fans strapped to their backs takes the prize as for what unglues the best of horses. Oh, and don't ride on the bridges, they're old, narrow, and unkempt.

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.

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.

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

Beautiful trail and a lot of fun to hike. The path has a lot of twists and turns and it’s easy to get lost so pay close attention to the map!

Nice and smooth loop

We got poured on, which doesn't bother us. Trail was muddy but very manageable, but it is very narrow and steep drop offs in some places so be mindful when it's wet. I was surprised by the amount of people we saw. The last part of the road going in was pretty pot-holed so all the traffic was a bit of a shock. It's a spectacular hike though and the waterfall is huge. So loud sometimes you don't realize it until you get a bit away.

Hope they re open it
Great hike!

Beautiful variety of scenery on this trail. Pay attention to signage because there are a few trails that connect and could throw you off course. Overall, great hike and would do again!

Lots of homeless. :(

Went on a Saturday, started around 8:30am and finished just before 11am. Great trail, some really beautiful scenery. Trails are well kept and only a couple rocky spots, mostly on the Los Santos loop. For a Saturday there wasn't very many people. Not counting the Vernal Pool area (which was completely dried up) I saw only about 6 or 7 people the whole time on the trail. Even though it is rated moderate, it's a great beginners trail.

Nice uphill climb and easy wide trail. Love the waterfalls and creek. Great walk. Lots of bikers.

Super easy but fun. Plus you're by the beach so bonus! Make a day of it to make it worth your while. Also don't expect a waterfall if you go in July. Because if you do, you're an asshole and I hate you.

straight good point too hike

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.

Love the Pudd! Go here religiously. So beautiful and peaceful. One time I saw a dude taking pics of some hot slut on a sports car. It was my favorite random thing that ever happened there! Lol

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.
