“A fun trail that offers great views.”— Daniel Lammers
Up until the split for the Warren Peak Trail and the scenic overlook, the trail is a consistent gradual climb. At this point, you'll have a clear view of Warren Peak and the trail will become much steeper. The footing can be troublesome as there is a lot of loose sand on top of rock so care is needed. Making it to the top is well worth it as the views of Big Bear, San Jacinto peak, Palm Springs, and Yucca Valley are well worth it. The trail is Intermediate/Difficult only for the last .8 miles.
Once you've reached the top, take your time enjoying the view before you decide to return to the trailhead the same way that you came.
