The trailhead is about 10 miles out from the 15 off of the 79 hwy, you'll see a 1/4 mile sign and the Dripping Springs Campground sign right after. There is parking for the trailhead as soon as you turn in on the right, there is also a self-pay adventure pass drop box, $5 per day. I'd say this hike was about 15 miles roundtrip figuring 1 hr = 3 miles. Roundtrip took me 5 hrs, from the Trailhead to the Palomar-Magee Trail sign at the top of the mountain and back. The trail starts off with long switchbacks at a slow incline and then turns to weaving between the mountains and then back to long switchbacks going back up another mountain. About 10 minutes before getting to the Palomar-Magee sign the bugs went from a few to a lot! I was going to keep going but about 10 minutes past the sign I decided the bug situation was not getting any better, I can handle bugs but this was bad enough to turn around. I brought 2 liters of water which was ok for me since I am able to pace my water intake but it was very hot, so I suggest only doing this hike on cool days.

You can hike up to the top and back in about 5 hours - a LOT of elevation gain. Make sure to bring plenty of water! If you do the full loop, make sure you're prepared for about 17 miles!

Mapped out at 11 miles from parking and we didn't go all the way to the pines! The info for trail distance needs to be rechecked!

Was an awesome hike. Me and my wife hiked it in 9.5 hours.

Advice bring lots of water and food, and start early.

More of a walk than a "hike". You are literally walking in a circle just behind everyone's back yard. Won't do this one again.

Went over labor day weekend. Had to pay 5 bucks and sign a form to get in but worth it. Took the dam climb which looks gated off but just swing your bike around. Its a fire road for the beginning then at the damn turns into a crazy ridge line. If you do not want to walk your bike i suggest taking the single tracks instead of the dam climb because damn you'll be climbing. Not for beginners because the down hill is crazy i went on level three and had to walk down half of it. Hopefully you have a frs for that downhill because a hard tail is well.. Hard. Good luck have fun.
