Great hike close to home. Very strenuous first half if you start to the right and hike counterclockwise. Very interesting scenery on the way down. Many trees have fallen across the trail due to recent fire and storms. This is my first time, but I'll be back again!

A great day for a hike, though very hot at about 95 degrees, I started out at the Manzanita trail at Placerita Canyon Nature Center and climbed up to the shadeless firebreak and finally made it to the shady tree in the clearing by the road. I hung out at Wilson Saddle for a while before descending down the Northside of the Los Pinetos trail. A good descent, just a hint of sun, but unfortunately many of our friend the gnat swarmed in the forest. Down to Walker Ranch and across through the scenic canyon to the Nature Center was a nice easy warmdown, however it felt plodding after the intensity of the first two legs.
I would recommend doing the trail in this direction, though an earlier start would have been welcome, as the high noon sun will cook you on the firebreak. Bring a wide brim hat, shades, and a wet rag to cool off with if you do this during summer.
it was my first time here and it was amazing !
I just wish I knew which trail took you on top of the SCV.
Besides that it was a good hike !
Best hike ever!!!
Well maintained trail. Awesome views of scv. Restroom at the top and area to have a nice lunch.

This was a simple easy relaxed hike that involved a gently balancing act around some corners. This is perfect if you're just looking for an easy quick hike.
