This is a wide track trail through a canyon that was known for oil drilling and ranching. It becomes a single track about 1.2 miles up that crosses a seasonal stream several times further up the canyon. This hike can be extended by simply going deeper up the trail. Proceed at your own risk once you leave the wide track.
if you want a nice walk that has a good easy trail with lots of tree cover this is perfect. short and sweet. my new favorite after work trail.
It was a nice simple hike. There were lots of signs of animal life present. It was not crowded with people.
A very short, enjoyable hike. Stay left at the fork to avoid a dead end at an Edison tower.
Winter trail luscious when its rained easy...
This was my first trail since arriving in California three days ago. It had rained the past two days and the vegetation was lush and green. The creek had a nice flow. It was a nice introduction to California hiking!
Creek trail path review: Great easy hike if you choose the right path. There are several paths that lead to different hikes for the easy creek path, park in the dirt lot on the right side of the road before the parking lot, which is on the left. Walk up a little bit of a hill past the brown fence and you will see a down hill trail. Once you walk down that path there will be a trail sign that says to the left is the creek trail and to the right is elsmere canyon loop. The creek trail at the very beginning looks like a dry river bed, but then becomes a somewhat tree covered path and even further it becomes a single track. It is a very easy walk.
