Potato Mountain Reviews & Ratings
Mountain lion spotted in the area so be aware.. its dropping are along the trail so be vigilant and prepared!. Its is a steady uphill hike to the top of potato mountain. Definitely not for beginners unless your are ready for a challenge. Bring plenty of water and bug spray! Everyone along this trail are very friendly and nice work out and a beautiful view at the top! You can even see LA for the view point If theres not too much smog😑😑 people bring their own potatoes from home and leave them at the top of the mountain. Not sure why but keeps it interesting I guess. :) not too much parking at the entrance though.
First time came for a hike in this area and we couldn’t made it to the top because we started the hike too late in the afternoon and it was way too hot to the point I felt dizziness. Second time here and we made it to the top and the view was amazing. The only issue was there were so many flies on the top maybe because of the weird weather that we experienced recently. Will come back hike to this place next time.
This is a good hiking trail it's a good workout when you get to the top youll find potatoes up there that people leave some of them are signed some Have Faces it's kind of cool to see some of them are shriveled up from the Sun so if you had up there take a potato and leave it to show that you were there and you made it to the top
The sunrise in the morning is so beautiful! ! Worth a visit! Need to get up early
Quick easy in and and out hike if your are a regular hiker. About a 5 mile hike slow elevation til half way up then it gets a little steeper to the top.
