The first 0.3 mile the trail has been turned into a gully by rain, steep exposed rock scramble up and a careful pick-your-way-down. If you're looking for views, there are many more attractive trails around LA area. This one might be better in spring with the possibility of wildflowers.
It was an easy at times but moderate as well. Me & my friend did the loop but the last part was intense, very steep and going downhill. If u try the whole loop, u will end up going by the la tuna canyon highway last 40mins of the walk before u get back to where most of the cars where parked. When u reached the power poles, my advice, just take the same route going back. Overall, it's a good work out!
This was very rough and almost dangerous trail. It had been dry for weeks and the hard-packed bleached dirt was sliding away under us on the down hill sections. I ended up sliding into a gouge made by runoff and tearing up my leg pretty badly. Great views, bring 1-2L of water as there is none around and little shade. I would agree with others that this is a moderate-difficult trail.
