Trail Information

Highlights

This is an excellent trail for spending a few hours out and back with beautiful views of the eastern side of the San Gabriel mountains. The inner rugged canyons and valleys of these mountains are not appreciated until you see them from within. Also, this trail has two nice free campgrounds where you can relax under shady pine trees. These campgrounds are seldom crowded, which is rare for campgrounds so close and easy to reach. The trail is easy and 2WD friendly unless the weather is abnormally poor.

Very scenic back road trail. It was cool to see the ski slopes with no snow. Nice shady picnic area just past the pond/reservoir.

Easy trail with a cool photo opportunity. You do get to pass under the chair lifts. All gates were open on 5/1/22.
