Ramona Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This well-maintained trail near Lake Hemet is enhanced by beautiful views of the San Jacinto Mountains and a gradual transition from desert landscape to dense pine forest. It begins just off CA 74 and follows several miles of switchbacks up a mountainside covered in pine, manzanita, ribbonwood, and huge rocks to a series of pristine campsites."

"Hike up a lovely chaparral-covered mountainside to beautiful pine forests and an improved spring. Views of the surrounding countryside are spectacular. The trail is wide open and not shaded from the sun until near the very highest reaches of the route. This is a perfect early-morning hike in summer or a great winter trek, but hot afternoons should be avoided. Gaining more than 1,500 feet of elevation from Garner Valley, this is one of the tougher hikes in this guide, but the gradient is gentle and steady."
