An adventurous loop hike on poorly marked trails through one of the most rugged areas of the Santa Monica Mountains. The hike starts out south along a densely wooded creek running into Rustic Canyon, that is quite lovely after recent rains. A side trip will take you to the blue gorge, a 6 foot wide, 20 foot high slot cut into the granite by the stream. Our loop then heads west along Bay Tree trail, named after a Bay tree with a small spring bubbling out of its roots. As the trail begins to move northwest, stop and have lunch at Cathedral Rock, near the junction of the Backbone and Temescal trails. A fun spot to climb on the rocks. The trail then double backs northeast along the Garaptio trail back to the car, with lovely mountain views along the way. Take a compass, a good map, and the directions from the guide book referenced for this hike. It's a full day outing, so bring water and food. Thanks to Eric Altizer for showing me this great hike!

Slightly overgrown at parts, but easy to get through. The tree covered trail was perfect after the open sun-covered fire roads.

cool trail first part was a little over grown and hella spider webs. felt like Spiderman was jizzing all over your face for the first half going counter clock wise. I advise the "blind man stick wave" method. it's still working since day one . other than that smooth sailing.

The garapito portion of Temescal is overgrown in parts but you are pretty much under the tree canopy for a long while so that’s a plus

Far more bikers than hikers. Easy climbs and descents, no shade on the wide roads and the garapito creek trail was very narrow and overgrown in comparison. No stellar views but overall a pleasing walk.

Extremely overgrown. If it is raining or has recently rained, avoid this one. Won’t go back to hike but it seems like a decent MTB area.

Did this for my birthday hike. Because there are so many different trails we got off the All Trails map twice and it ended up being 10.5 miles! But it was a beautiful hike especially the second half. We did it clockwise which I believe is the easier way. Everyone along the way, hikers and bikers, were friendly and helpful.

I hiked what I think is this trail today, although I am having trouble reconciling the map with the description. I hiked clockwise from Mulholland to Bent Arrow to Temescal Canyon to Garapito Canyon. Bent Arrow does not follow a densely wooded creek, so there may be another trail. I did see one on the map called Bay Tree trail; however, it must be farther east on Mulholland. However, when I used GPS and compared where I was with the map, it showed where I was supposed to be. It also comes out right at Garapito. Anyway, I really enjoyed the hike. Garapito Canyon is very pretty, and would probably be quite lovely in the Spring. I think hiking this loop counterclockwise might be harder than hiking it clockwise. Otherwise it is not hard at all, if you hike at all.

We took the trail from the north entrance of TCyn (Braude Park), and didn’t how long it was. There was so much mist that we couldn’t see 20 feet in front of us. We finally reached a place to get out of the trail and thanks to a nearby sign .08 mile to hub, we were able to find our way out of the park. Lovely, but long hike. Brings lots of water, hat, and snacks.

I really liked this hike. Not much traffic at all once you get into it a bit. Only challenging at small parts. Great scenery to look at of the valley and the canyon. I took the junction up Eagle Rock and sat up there for a bit. Pretty peaceful. I definitely recommend it.

I love this trail. You can walk it, run it or bike it. Great views and many different trail options to connect you to different areas.

Very nice relaxing hike. Took the fire road up to where you can see the ocean and downtown LA in one panoramic shot.

Nice trail. I did it counterclockwise. The hardest part of the trail is in the canyon but even that isn't bad. Lots of shade but much of the fire road areas are full sun. Not a lot of traffic at all. Take some time and check out eagle rock and cathedral rocks. They are not on the trail but very close.

The Garpito Trail is definitely challenging hike. I takes you through the heart to the bushy canyon on a forestry trail that can be very unfriendly to tall people. Eventually there is a very noticeable rock under a shady tree beside a stream, This is a great place to rest. The trail takes you all the way to Cheney road and eagle rock.
