A relatively eash run along a mostly paved road/path.

John McKinney

Overview

Catch-and-release only fishing is permitted in the wild trout preserve. Within 1.5 miles of the trailhead, fishing for keeps is permitted.

Description

The start of this trail (actually a paved road) is at the junction with Highway 39. The road follows the West Fork San Gabriel River. At about a mile, the trail intersects Bear Creek Trail; then within another 0.5 miles, it enters a wild trout preserve. The road climbs steadily over easy grades. There is shade along this path from oak and sycamore trees. At 6.4 miles, the trail reaches Glenn Camp. The trail ends at the Cogswell Reservoir when it intersects with forest service roads.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
