Nice trail, easy to follow. Can be easy or moderate depending on which entrance you choose.
Very easy trail. You can see a good view of Santa Clarita "Saugus" area. When you are between the canyons it is dead silent. Not too crowded at all.
Trail has nice views. We went after some heavy rains, but the mud was not too bad at the time. There was a lot of wind, as well.
I can imagine during the warmer months that this tail is occupied with many dirt bikers, as there are a great collection of jumps for them. It would be fun to come and see them perform.
Nice easy short hike although depending were you start from the first 1/2 mile up starting from the north east trailhead are steep 400 something gain. My favorite short hike close to were I live when I don't have time for a longer hike.
Great trial for mountain biking! Would definitely recommend

Decent little trail in Santa Clarita. Seems to offer more to dirt bikers than anything. Nice view at top. Short easy loop, nothing too exciting. Worth it if you live nearby but I wouldn't travel far for this one.
