The loop marked on this trail has a section that is extremely sketch. Goes down a rocky cliff side to the bottom. However, if you stay on the dirt road instead heading straight down, you will reconnect to the main path. Also drop into the Audubon center. They have a good map of the trail.

Excellent view and the pond is very relaxing, great area for dogs.

Did the hike around 7:30-9:00 pm, easy trail but rewarding with beautiful downtown LA view

I've suggested some changes to the trail description: I would not call this easy, and it is not kid friendly. There is a moderate climb on a narrow single track, with steep dropoffs, and you need to scramble a bit to get to the road. And the road for the return part is literally a road: paved, with traffic, no sidewalk or shoulder. That said, I enjoyed this hike. Right after you join the road, there is a short spur to a "secret swing," where you can Instagram yourself swinging over a canyon. A little scary, but fun. There are also great views of Dodger Stadium on your way back, and you can add a short spur to Angel's Point, which has nice views.

Nice workout on mainly fire roads with very little shade. Plenty of trails to extend the mileage; great views of the city.

There were quite a few good lookout points and pockets of shade throughout the trail. In the middle of the trip there were some parts that were slim with very little elbow room. all in all a great hike.

The trail was pretty past the stables so I’m the future I’d park at arroyo Seco Park and walk from there on tree-lined trail only, there and back. The route continues past where it has you loop around so that could be a way to extend it a bit since starting by the stables would mean for a much shorter walk.

Great for running up and down hill. wide trails that are great for groups/families to walk and talk. A bit boring and not clearly marked, but again, great for exercise.

Not sure what happened but it ended up being 3.5 miles. The lake was nice.

we did this Trail up to Deb pond and it was a nice hike except there's too much Fire Road and some of it is as hard as asphalt and we came back two different ways and both of them were hardpan trails. we did three different switchbacks to make the hike a little longer but overall if you're going to do this hike just go straight to Debs Pond and straight back then I can recommend it because the pine trees & the lake and the fish and the turtles and the little waterfall are worth the trip

good hike!

Great if you need to fit in a "quick" hike with elevation variations. The lake/pond is beautiful; today the are was full of turtles.

Lots of path options & serious inclines, with wide paths.

Would do this hike again for sure! The first half is a little boring if you’re going clockwise but it has a pretty good incline for about a mile. Once you get to the little pond and afterwards you get great views of DTLA and the mountains. After 4pm you have to park on the road next to the park entrance but really no biggie! Would definitely recommend this hike if you’re looking for an easier, less trafficked trail with great views.

Challenging beginner trail - if you start going to the right and continue making right turns, about 70% of this is uphill. The pond at the top is heavenly and there were very few other hikers on this Friday afternoon.

These trails were easy would definitely recommend dog friendly and beautiful in spring

This is a quality short hike. I didn't give it a 5 star because there aren't many clear markers. There isn't much shade along the hike. However, the pond has lots of shade and is a nice place to stop and rest.

We loved it! I picked this place to bring my 6 year old son for his first hiking trip and we both loved it. Will definitely will come again.
