It's a cool trail, the version ALLTRAILS shows you used to be open. The landowners decided not to allow this after some locals had a bonfire and left all their garbage (including the burned wood). HOWEVER, 2 trees is accessible via arroyo verde park, it's much longer but doable. You will be fined if you attempt the normal two trees trail, in daylight. Any questions email me at jpruiz113@gmail.com

At first it seemed like a simple trail. As I continued, I discovered that there were spots where it was steep climbing and your stamina was definitely tested. Overall, I enjoyed the hike and would do it again.

Stunning views and steady uphill climb (which means return trip is great!). I went 4.5 miles out and turned around... later on I will have to go back and do the whole trail! Nice, wide road, and alternate views of Lake Casitas and the neighboring hills of Ojai, as well as (I think, unless it was just haze) a distant view of the ocean.

Yes, see comments below. This trail should be removed from the list. It was a waste of a trip to get to the trail and realize (after seeing the signage) that it wasn't ok to hike there... at first I wondered if the signs were defunct, having been graffitied all over and looking really rusted and old, but I was too nervous to continue. Please remove!

Was able to hike it from the bottom and get picked up on the top past the last gate. Every bit of 11 miles. Good workout at a pace (about 3.2 MPH). A good (basically) all uphill hike. 3.5 hours starting before 6:am. Didn't see a soul - and great views of the ocean, islands then in certain spots Ojai to the left. Perfect marine layer day for cool but could still see the islands.

Not very challenging. It's a trail off of the park so not much of a scenic hike but still pretty view of the beach and Ventura. Good for beginnings or with children

Very pedestrian trail not much of a challenge or length to the trails but gets a bonus star for possible California Condor sighting. Don't want to give away too much but climb high.

Do not do this hike. You will be fined. A few a holes who wanted to leave trash and light fires ruined it for the rest of us. Sorry.
