Nice with lots of opportunities to make it harder. Very versatile and mountain bike friendly. At 3:30 pm you get a lot of shade. I kept going and logged in 11.3 miles and over 2000*feet of climbing. Great views!

Loved it. Few people, amazing views, great workout. What else could you ask for in the center of America's 2nd largest city. Another LA awesome.

It was a great, moderate hike and very green which was nice. Some really nice views with a decent incline/decline. Took around 2 hours. More like 6.2 miles I'd say. Would definitely come back.

When I measured it my app said 6.5 miles, and it is definitely a productive workout. The incline is good for legs, however there is not much shade.

It was terrific. As a steady city hiker, this one proved to be amazing. Killer views, good work out, privacy, dogs. I love LA.

Stay to the right at the beginning and you get a lot of moderate uphill, then very steep downhill. Overall, this was a nice trail, but there was very little variety and brutal in the sun.

It's more a road that runs very close to the radio towers, nevertheless the round trip took us 2 hrs up and 1 1/2 hrs down with a 15 min rest at the top. A good leg workout.

Easy trail. Steep at times. But worth it

It was a good, challenging hike. Did the loop and it took us 11miles in almost 2 hours. We took the left heading up. Great hike!
