It was my first time on this particular trail and I have to say that it is a tough one, you climbing from the start and it seems like it never stops until you to the top. The trail gets very narrow at certain points and the drop offs are pretty intense. This trail is a work out for the whole body, I look forward to doing it again now that I know what I'm in for
This is a nice moderate hike, with a fair amount of shade compared to other trails in the area. I hiked at 8am on a Saturday and there was light to moderate foot traffic toward the bottom, and almost zero traffic towards the top. There were several mountain bikers, and a few trail runners.
Ran this trail from the parking area up to about 1/3 of a mile from the radio tower. I estimate it was about a 3 3/4 round trip. Very scenic and pretty. Also very hot with little to no shade. There is water only at the trail head. Arrive hydrated. We saw a coyote along the trail so I advise dog owners to keep their dogs on a leash. If you are a distance runner this is some nice hill training. Or if you're simply a hiker, great exercise and views
Great alternative to the crowds at Runyon. There's parking on Harvard just outside the main gate, as well as a few spaces on Wildwood Cyn Drive. There are also multiple trail heads along Wildwood Cyn Drive, so be sure to coordinate with your crew accordingly. Trail itself is pretty steep. Going up is gonna build your leg & cardio strength; going down is going to test your knees - but *totally* worth it! At the top is the "Wisdom Tree" with great views of Burbank, "The Valley", Los Angeles, and on clear days: Catalina!
Very nice trail.. A little steep in the first half.. Very nice view you can see 134 fwy on the other side and the other side will be the city view.. Parking is ok there is a restroom as well.. Plenty of rest points.. Bring a lot of water.. We only hike up to radio tower but still there are more trail that you can walk to..
