Parking is easy and free. Light traffic. No shade, so be smarter than I was and go hiking as early as possible during the scorching heat months. Super steep climb the entire time until you get to the top.

This is a great trail. Challenging but the perfect amount of time.

If you're looking for a moderately difficult trail, you've found it, I hiked from the North side it's 2.1 miles all the way up to the stone bench and it was a steep climb, I left at 5 PM with the sun above my head and thankfully there are trees to keep one cool and it does help when you have a 1.5 liter of hydration pack I got to the top in 2 hours it takes most advanced hikers 50 minutes. I then hiked down from the South side to take advantage of the sunlight before arriving down to my car which took me a little longer than normal as I was hiking with a few club members. All in all it was a great experience, which I would love to repeat a few times a week, it's a great exercise if you want to shed some pounds off.

I love it! All the hikers are very friendly. Great workout. Light traffic

Hiked the left side of the loop on the way up. Got to the top in 3 hours. I didn’t need a map or gps. Not bad for a novice like me! Great trail with awesome views! I will definitely do this hike again!

Beautiful views of Glendale, Burbank, and downtown L.A make this hike worth it. Going counter clockwise or right at the fork is a little bit easier uphill.

This place was beautiful, even though when you get there they have a bomb of trials and some don’t even continue it was beautiful. Very simple for beginners the views of the pond are beautiful, fun to be adventurous and seeing what you find. Once you hit the main trail it’s a good work out.

Pretty nice and exciting trail . It gets hard and mostly moderate . Not so long way. Quite pretty and green. Didn’t see no river or lake or waterfall . Traffic was light on Sunday

No water in June, just a little mud. Nice little hike. I’d say closer to the medium side of easy.

Havent done the whole trail, although the part I did, seemed fairly easy.

I love the pond which includes koi, fish and geese!

A nice place to take a lesson experienced friend or family member :)

Great hike with lots of pretty wildflowers late April and May. There's zero shade so it's best to go early morning or night hike. Parking is very easy too. The hike itself is a great steady workout. Oh, watch out for fire ants. My dog got bit by some of them and was in great pain for the rest of the day.

This hike is short and steep. We hiked this morning around 10 am and were completely submerged in fog at the top 5/19/18. It was pretty cool. If you go around this time of year there are plenty of wildflowers in bloom. Parking is plenty and free.

I liked this hike cuz it was easy :)

Tough, but enjoyable hike! The loop is 5 miles in total and you go straight up for 2.5 miles. The peak offers views in every direction and the hike down the mountain is even more enjoyable. Took me about three hours to complete and wasn’t very busy on a Sunday afternoon.

Very nice hike. It was foggy, so I was basically walking in a cloud the entire time, but the trail has a nice grade, and there's a lot of greenery and wildflowers. Can't wait to try it on a nice day!

This is a strenuous hike and so much fun! Great views, easy parking, sometimes the occasional mountain bike. Fun to see the radio towers up close.

this was not an easy trail.. more like 5m out and back.

We started at 8am and it was warm already. Start early to try to beat the heat. We tracked 10 miles. Also came across a rattlesnake!

I started counter clockwise. I also recommend using one of the “Recordings” from someone who completed the hike already as a guide vs this main one as it is short by 2 miles it doesn’t mark the trail correctly.

First timer at this trail today and it was awesome. Definitely coming back here at least 3 times a week!

Nice hike, but lots of small rocks. End up being over 10 miles.

Beautiful views of the valley and DTLA. We hiked this in late April and there were lots of pretty wildflowers. It’s pretty steep at the beginning and throughout the trail. Great cardio workout!

If you like hard trail, that’s what you need.

Really good workout. Make sure you bring enough water as the trail is strenuous and there is not much shade.

Distance was actually over 10 miles. Lots of unmarked forks so bring a map! Most of the trail (probably 99%) is in direct sunlight. Views at the top were great, but the journey there wasn't. Don't do this hike in the summer if you decide to go.

Love it. I’m on this trail several times a week.

Very hard. But view from the top is amazing!!!!!

This was a challenging hike the trail is very steep and often very exposed. The day we hiked there were unusually sting winds that made it difficult and kicked up a lot of dust.
