HIKE WALKTHROUGH: We begin at the bottom of the Schabarum Park trailhead. Corner of Azusa and Colima. Starting with our first incline then come across a few little hills but mostly flat for the beginning of trail for about 1 mile. We will then pass a small bridge and the horse stable and continue going up hill. We will then begin going up the switch back that will take us to our first peak. We then begin going down hill with a nice decent and then continue up hill on fire road with a good amount of gain for remaining part of the hike till we reach the Electrical towers that is our half way point. You will get a great view. This is where we will be taking our extended break. Expect most of the trail to have unshaded sections on the way up. We will have short stops along the way. Then we will proceed to the fire road going down hill (dirt road) Same way we hiked up. We will have some shade as only some trail has a canopy of trees for covering but for the most part we will be exposed to the sun. Passing the horse stables and a then going over a little bridge to the connecting trail where the hike began. A total of approx 5 miles.

We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for. You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suit your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
