I give it a 4 for the area because I love the morning shade that this trail offers. I also love how it's a more quaint trail and less traffic than Fryman. Great running trail.

Biggest drawback is that it's extremely busy and goes through a residential area, although a nice one.

Nice 1hr loop

Eh. It's okay. Well maintained, and easy if you live close by. Some nice views. Didn't realize the loop included residential areas. We took the long way down and just went back up. Made it a slightly longer hike and moderately challenging for someone like me going back uphill most of the way. Lots of dogs. Lots of runners. Lots of people who don't pick up their dog's poop because I guess they believe rules and social etiquette don't apply to them. I may come back if I am short on time and in need of a walk. Too many other trails to explore to put this on a repeat list though.

Relaxing and strolling...literally, like taking a stroll in the park. Puts a skip in your step:)

As far as hiking goes this has some cool views of the valley but other than that it's mainly an exercise trail with lots of people just running and walking fast. If you live near the area it's a good place to get out doors but it does have a good chunk of walking through some neighborhoods on cement. Overall I prefer parking at the bottom and hiking up and then getting to the peak and turning back so that its dirt trail almost the whole way. Not terrible just not an outdoor adventure like some national parks type hikes.

this trail walks you through a residential neighborhood for a couple blocks, that's the biggest drawback. it's more of an exorcise trail being in the city. there was also two school busses of kids walking around. this trail is very busy and has no seclusion. it would be good for a short strenuous bike lap. I doubt I'll go back except for a cardio workout.

I don't get it. Was part of this hike SUPPOSED to spit you out into a residential area before picking back up after 15 minutes of wandering around the streets of Bel Air, or was that just an error on the map?

I guess other than that, the trail is ok. Only one hour to complete the loop. Located close to the city, so it's easy to get to. Plenty of free parking in the Tree People lot off of the Coldwater Canyon entrance.

I love the trails at TreePeople! Beautiful views over the city. You can also continue your hike from here to Fryman Canyon. Also while you're there check out the cistern. TreePeople harnesses their rainwater for sustaining the park, meaning they don't need to waste energy by importing water from elsewhere!
I love the quiet peacefulness of this park while still being right in the city!

Like most trails in this area, biking is a challenge considering how consistently uphill this trail is. Beautiful scenery!
