Nice, very moderate trail. Steady, but not strenuous uphill. If you opt for the loop it gets more difficult. You're basically going up a rock slide on the loop. Worth the extra half hour though great views.
All uphill! Perfect morning leg workout. Great view at the tip.
we had a good time. it's very dry right now so be mindful of the slippery slope.
straight up and back, didn't do the loop. quick rest at the top for water and a photo or two, but there's very minimal shade, so don't forget your sunscreen.
Great trail to take my two dogs up. One rather steep hill but nice on the way down
It was beautiful fantastic views. But its steep little climb which is nice going up but the down in parts is pretty slippery, be careful not to slide on the loose dirt/rocks.
This is a solid short hike if you use the loop. If you want to make it longer, keep going and there are a few different directions to take. However, at your own discretion and if you have time because I ended up just turning around twice to find my way back.
Parts of this trail are not easy. It's a steady incline most of the way but the actual loop is up a steep hill with loose rock. A lot of fun but not a hike I would do on a hot day or by myself. Our route recording shows this hike as 3.5 miles.
Good trail, easy/moderate climb for most of it. The last loop has a very high grade hill, >30% in places. At the loop We went up the right trail then walked west along a ridge until we came to a bench, then headed south down the nose (counterclockwise). Descent was a bit rough, rather steep. We also had a dog with us, not a problem. Views were outstanding, mostly orchards and a couple mansions. One thing, it's somewhat easy to miss the loop as marked. We kept hiking about 3/4 of a mile past it (there's definitely a trail or something to follow).
Nice trail with some steep sections. Beautiful views from the upper part of the loop. There is a bench at the top of the ridge which is a perfect resting place. Would recommend going around the loop to the right (counterclockwise) to avoid going downhill on the steepest section.
Nice trail.. Good view on top. Not too exciting.. But good incline. Not technical.
Great view. Fun with friends and family
Great hike. Easy to get to, solid incline. Took my partner and I about an hour to do 3 miles, stopping to take pictures along the way. Good view of the ocean on clear days. Popular, lots of dogs and children.
great trail. I am a bit out of shape but I would easily say this is a MODERATE TRAIL. The incline was constant and at stair angle. Great view at top and on the way down as well. Glorious trail. Just to echo others on the dog leash thing. Seriously people put em on a leash. Several times had joggers with dogs run up on us and it took several minutes to calm the dog after. I hear you. you're dog is amazing. You don't know what other dogs are like - so for the safety of all use a leash.
Great hike! It's fine to skip the circle part; lots of folks did. And it seems it's a popular through trail to somewhere beyond; you can see on the map a dotted line (Cozy Ojai Rd?). Lots of families with kids and folks with dogs (wish they'd keep them on the leash though?!). The extra circle part is very steep but up top you can see the ocean and Ana Capa and the lake Casitas; it's a great view. Be careful of that bench though. It looks not long for this world. To get to the steep part and the circle tour requires a sharp departure left from the seemingly through trail - keep your eyes peeled.
Kids loved it. Fun easy to moderate hike. Nice shade and views.
The hike to the loop is a nice easy, often shaded rise, on a well-marked trail. The loop was much steeper than expected, but we persevered and were rewarded with an amazing view and a nice resting bench at the top. The loop is about only about ¼ mile up to the top. Loads of birds and quiet solitude the whole way. Highly recommended. We are in our early 60s and did the entire hike in a little over 2 hours. Parking easy to find and sign points across the street to narrow but easy-to-find trailhead.
