Went on this hike on the 14 th- 15th of March backpacked in with 2 other people... The river crossings and the sense of being lost and making your own trail was amazing... Can't wait to return

Cool hike, stay to the upper trails on the way out and get into the canyon on the way down. There are a lot of dead ends and washed out trails, have fun and be safe.

Seriously my favorite hike by far, and probably the best in Azusa Canyons. You have complete isolation, parts of cool shade, a few river creek crossings to stay cool, and I'd say three distinct sections with completely different scenery. It has everything you can ever want. I remember finding it in a book about California of food and odd stuff not many people heard of. If you are near Azusa and are looking for a rewarding hike, this is the one for you. You will not be disappointed!

Smith Mountain

Damn that was something! It began with a relatively steep incline for about the first mile. Then it evens out as you meander around the side of the hill. Eventually you get to where you get to see the incline to the top, but don't psyche yourself out, its manageable. Once you get to the saddle about 2.5 miles in, you can either go back towards the back hill, down to the right or up to the left to the top of the mountain. It has a couple false tops but just keep going, its worth it to be up there. So rewarding to climb it and see it from the parking lot. I only gave it four stars because you can still see the road you came on and I always look for complete isolation. But overall great hike to get back into it. I'm still sore three days later and it feels great!

This was a awesome hike to Smith Mountain. This hike does involve scrambling , but nothing to hard ( Nothing like Strawberry Peak). Make sure you wear proper shoes and take your time. The fun factor is definitely high and there are some tricky parts. I would say its Class 2.5 almost Class 3. Make sure you take lots of water and some snacks. The elevation gain from the Smith Saddle to the top is around 800 feet of gain. The views are awesome and I would definitely do this hike again! This is also part of the Sierra Clubs Hundred Peaks Section.

Started our hike at 6am. A bit chilly, but worth it because a lot of people show up as it gets warmer. You'll get your feet wet.
