Let me start off by saying...this is SUCH a fun hike. I'm an avid hiker, so it's not the most difficult or strenuous by any means. But there are so many fun aspects of this trail - climbing rocks, crossing streams, balancing on logs, swimming in a lake, jumping off a bridge...but more on that later. This is a wonderful hike to bring your dog on since the lake water can cool them off. There are cooler areas with shade throughout the trail which provide a nice break from the hot sun. I definitely recommend wearing waterproof boots so you don't have to worry about your shoes and socks getting wet since there are about 10-15 stream crossings. I also highly recommend bungee jumping off the top of the bridge. SO FUN! It's organized by Bungee America and you can reserve a spot in advance. Great way to get your adrenaline pumping for the hike back down. I can't wait to go back to this trail. Enjoy!

Luckily the noise from the campsites where you start will be gone after the first 10 minutes of hiking. This is a fun hike with nothing but up. The trails are well maintained and easy to follow. Saw a lot of lizards and one deer while making my way up the trail. Windy Gap is named that for a reason and once you're to the top you'll realize why. There are a few challenging spots that look like they've been washed away but as I hiked I saw Forestry staff repairing some of it. Enjoyable hike for a nice day.

One of the best hikes I've done. moderately difficult, but extremely enjoyable. it's awesome for dogs since the river is there to cool them off.

It was definitely a challenge, rewarding, and breathtaking. The climb was so steep that I was on my toes for about 1/3 of it. I literally climbed up the mountain ridge all the way to the top. There were no switchbacks or wide trails. It's what some of my friends would call an animal trail. I was told that not too many people ever go on this hike, which made it perfect for me. If I wanted something easy and popular, I'd do Runyon canyon or Griffith Park.

There's no bush whacking required anymore, but my trekking poles were definitely helpful, and pay attention for the ducks, especially the one before you turn left to go up the ridge. I added an arrow on the ground, made of little rocks, and I put 2 more ducks on either side of the beginning of the ridge, but who knows how long it'll last.

I recommend wearing long thin hiking pants. It gets hot, but it was nice to have pants on when I slid back down from the peak, and when I walked through this "planty" part.

There are no waterfalls or bridge or cave filled with gold and amethysts at the top. It was just me and the mountain, and a couple of butterflies. Everything else was quiet, even my head.
