Its a brutal climb to the top with a mountain bike. But well worth it for the view and long descent. The down hill portion is fun, and a little chunky in some parts. But nothing too difficult. Not recommended for beginners though.

love this little trail! peaceful, not too crowded, but civilization not too far off if you're inexperienced. beautiful animals and foliage. lots of bees and red ants though.

Steep climb but well worth it! The trail is exposed and no water available on trail so go prepared.

I was visiting from AZ and found this trail on AllTrails. I was looking for a 10 mile trail run with good elevation and this trail hit it on the head for me. I ran at sunrise and enjoyed every minute of it. Outside of a few small dips, the first 5 miles out were all climbing in some regard. After two miles I was above the clouds and had phenomenal views of the surrounding valleys all around. I highly recommend this trail for all abilities and paces and can’t wait to come back. Cheers

Great Road for mountain biking, one inconsiderate fellow almost ran me over, also great for hiking. Burned trees from Thomas Fire makes for interesting scenery as does natural oil well right at the beginning. After first mile only saw two mountain bikers, the rude one mentioned and a friendlier one, to mile 6 marker where I turned around. Best would be to leave a car at top so as to not have to turn around. Bring lots of water.

Beautiful trail! We ran into no other hikers either the entire hike. Its a hidden gem of Malibu.

Cool place. Some nice spurs to explore

So my girlfriend and I hiked this one today. We hike at least twice a week between 4-8 miles each hike. This one was definitely not an easy one.
To add to it we kinda took a wrong route before around the campsite and up some little trail of about 2 miles. Wasted energy and end of July heat was so amazing. Lol.
Overall it’s a great hike with beautiful reward at the end. The pond had water btw. It’s a bit of incline for the first 2.5 miles and totally worth it. Not for beginners though. We loved the solidarity cause no one is hiking this trail. We were the only one there. Probably cause it hard with no waterfall reward at the end. Would do it again.

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.

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.

The hike to the ridge was moderate. The views from the ridge are quite spectacular. I would do this again. It is good for a easy going climb and spectacular sunset and view of sandstone formations

This is a good moderate steady uphill climb with great views of Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley. Just note that when you get to the first fork, head left rather than right to continue up the trail. I had veered right and there are a few scrambly climbs and a viewpoint and beautiful plateau like area with wildflowers, but to continue the trail, go left.

There were a surprising number of people on the trail for a weekday evening and everyone was quite friendly and seemed like experienced because no one seemed taxed.

I started the hike in the evening around 6.20 and wanted to get back before dark so I did not make it all the way to the top, so I definitely am coming back. Surprisingly, other people were starting up the trail around 7.40 so I would love to hear what their experience was like starting the climb an hour before dark!

great trail run. up, up, up, down into canyon and back up. way up. the single tracks were all pretty overgrown but ok. way back down so pretty.

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.

I'm laying here after hiking and I don't know if it's the sun or just taking the more challenging parts of trail but I'm tired... lol This is a nice hike. What I like about it is that it is challenging enough to hike/run without being disappointed that there were no ocean views because of the haze. There is no shade so be sure to stay hydrated or hike closer to sunset. This trail is dog-friendly so be on the lookout since some people some don't pick up after their dogs.

The fire road trail is wide and paved in a way that is versatile enough to hike/bike ride and have your dog off-leash. On this particular day it was kind of hazy so I didn't get the clearest views of the ocean but I read that in a clear day you can see to Catalina. Always be aware that not only are there lizards and snakes but also dog poop to watch for. Also know that some of the mountain bikers come down hill quickly so be alert.

This was my first time but I found out about it because I wanted a trail that was close enough that I could take the dog with he visits. I like that there is a parking lot but also adequate street parking. Respect the neighborhood and when you visit we shouldn't have to worry about permits when the lot is full.

With nice views, a versatile trail and being another gem on the west side I can say that I would recommend this trail for those looking for a little bit of a challenge. Stay hydrated.

I’ve been getting into trail running lately and this one is fantastic for it. It’s basically all up hill but that makes your way back easier. It’s pretty challenging due to the elevation, but would highly recommend this hike for trail running or hiking. Wear protection from the sun due to it being out in the open.

Fun fire roads for easy mountain biking.

Fun, easy hike. Great views and feels like you are out of the city for most of it.

Easy hike, historic, interesting, good views, everyone should do this hike at least once.

Am always surprised more people don’t hike this trail. Even on the weekend, there is just not a lot of traffic on this trail. Great vistas in the beginning and solitude for the rest of the hike. While not a difficult trail in terms of technical hiking, it’s quite a bit up, up, up for a while. This is not a beginner hike.

The best hike I've ever been so far. Amazing mountain views from the 1st minute.
Be aware - not a lot shade! Better to come in the morning.

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.

Hiked all the way to the Chumash trail and back. It turned out to be 8 miles for me. Great views once it cleared up. Got there at 5:30am on a Saturday and there was quite a few cars parked already. There more parking across the bridge.

Did part of this hike yesterday. Made it up to MtLowe during a really cool foggy day. No way of judging most of the views due to the fog. Soon after the parking area you will come across a nice tunnel made in the 1940s. Once you reach the top there’s a few view finders that point out the surrounding peaks.

I've done this a few times, both half way to the Lowe Railway Camp, which is about 5 miles round trip and all the way to Inspiration Point, which is 10 miles round trip. It's definitely worth it to go the entire way if you have time, the views are amazing at inspiration point and the trail is empty and quiet the second half of the way. It can be a bit confusing around the ruins on the way back, but if you have your app/maps then you'll be fine. I rate this as moderate not difficult as long as you're in halfway decent shape you should be fine.

Was a really lovely walk. A little confusing on the way down but nothing the app or maps couldnt sort out!

This hike is amazing. The views go on as far as the eye can see. I felt like the further back on the trail I went the more beautiful the scenery was. Well worth the climb!

this hike was all uphill and it was 10 .1 miles round-trip but the view from the top is a 360-degree view so it was worth it once we got up there and we think we saw a mountain lion but it was too far away to tell for sure
