It was perfect for a post thanksgiving meal. Difficult at some parts but worth it because of the great views of downtown LA. Start of the trail is easy to find with plenty of parking!
Going up hill is pretty steep, but worth it for the workout!
Steep trail, almost no sun cover so come prepared if its a sunny day. has some nice views
good steep first mile. after that enjoyable
Great trail with steep inclines. Kid friendly with great views.
it was awsome really hard trail
Short but very steep. To get an idea, this trail offers 456/1.6 = 287 ft gain per mile. The San Jacinto hike gives you 4100/15 = 273 ft gain per mile. So technically this trail is steeper. Of the other difficult hikes, Half Dome and Whitney gives you >300 ft gain per mile.
Great workout trail. Short but steep. The stairs warm you up for the rest.
Good practice Trail.
Good work out.
The hike is nice, and has a great view of just diamond bar and a few of the surrounding cities from the top of the various hills. The trail is steep but it's completely manageable. Just beware of the snakes bc I could hear them!! It's really quick and easy and you could do multiple runs around the trail since it runs in a circle! Great for the booty.
