Great little hike. Most of the hike has a nice wide trail that is well maintained (and part of it paved). The end of the hike was through a residential neighborhood. Nice views of the valley, but nothing amazing. Not too crowded, but passed people every couple of minutes. Saw Mountain bikers, dog walkers, and trail runners in addition to people out for a walk. Great place to get some exercise.
I'm from Colorado and I liked the difficulty of this trail. Not too hard or too easy. It was a great pace for me as 21 year old. The views are amazing.
It is a perfect challenge for me. I have not worked out in a very long time so this was the perfect combination of a challenge and being enjoyable.
Very urban. Good loop. Nice views.
I can walk to this trail from my house and it's a favorite for the area. It's your typical canyon hike, very few trees mostly shrub but does have some great views and is a decent workout.
It's a beautiful view all around. The hike is pretty moderate and a good balance between elevations and down hills, which make it doable.
Gorgeous trail in the middle of the city that feels secluded. Clean bathrooms, water fountains, and benches up on the tree people side of the loop. By far my favorite hike in LA for catching up with friends and talking while you get a serious butt workout.
it was a nice easy hike! lots of dogs and the trail path is narrow but it was fun.. would go back again.
Pretty mellow but nice
I like how quick this loop feels. If you start at Betty Dearing Park and head west up the hill, you get a steady incline up a fire road for good stretch of the hike. Towards the end there's a nice long "cool down" stretch of paved road with plenty of shade in a really sweet, quiet neighborhood.
