Great hike if you're looking for a good workout. Plenty of steep challenging hills, great views. Didn't see any wildlife which I was kind of bummed about. Make sure to take money for parking $6 and plenty of water.

Well used on the weekend but wide enough that you don't feel crowded. For free parking, find a spot on the south corner of Azusa and Colima or start at powder canyon and connect up with this trail. It's not quite as solitary as a mountain trail because the horseshoe shape trail goes around the park but it is still a great hike. Will definitely do it again.

I use this trail as a cardio workout and a place (near home) to walk my dogs three to five times a week. It gets lots of traffic (locals, mountain bikes and occasionally horses) but still offers great views of the San Gabriel Valley and Orange County. On clear days you can see Catalina and if you look closely the oil rigs and tankers off shore. It's not exactly "out in the sticks" but it is a pleasurable hike for those who want one.

Nice trail. Good for being so close to home. During the week they don't charge for parking. Last week we went 3 times and 2 of the days we saw deer.

This loop hike was very easy. Lots of potential for a quick easy hike. Finished the loop in under an hour. There are signs posted to follow the loop. 6 signs total. I started at sign 6 and finished at sign 1. Sign 1 is up the hill from the entrance to the park. Sign 6 is near the exit of the park. Saw a hawk as well as many other birds. But the hawk was near head height on a branch and a few feet off the trail. It was really cool to see. Overall it was a fun hike. Definitely a local hot spot. Lots of other activities available in the park.

Good hike and I am glad I started early. Went to the west trail almost to Hacienda then I took Powder Canyon to the end or start however you want to call it. If you want to start early you can start at the Powder Canyon trail head and save 6 dollars.
