Great and tough hike. Get there early, started hiking at 6:30am on a Sunday and the parking lot was almost full. Steep inclines and beautiful views at the top.

New rules, park hours are sunrise to sunset. Railings are added to a large portion of the parking lot. I am sad I can no longer hike this in the winter.

Solid workout! I was trying to find out if the trail was okay (not too soggy) after the rains and I can report they are in great shape. There are some loose pebbles, stones, rocks as you come down the trail if you start on trail going clockwise at starting point. All and all? Great workout and nice views. Had a tour of at least 40 people to pass. That was an all time first! Haha! All good tho!

We had two hours spare before brunch so quickly shot up here for a hike. You cannot bring your dog unfortunately, however, for a busy hike, everyone was friendly and the views are quite good for such a short city hike.

CLOSED: Went up there today to see what condition it was in. The park ranger told me it would be closed for about another week, as the threat of mudslides is too great with forthcoming weather and downed trees that need to be removed from the trail.

Great view at the peak!

this was a fun hike a lot of different trails and they go down on all sides of the mountain we saw a lot of people and everybody was really friendly we will definitely be coming back again

Gorgeous views of city, mountains and ocean! Enjoyable trail! Areas of the trail have loose small rocks, so sturdy hiking boots and poles recommended.

Nice hike, but pretty much uphill all the way. Was a great day for this, so I can't complain too much. Good excersise.

this is a tough hike the toughest we've done yet but the view from the top is breathtaking

Great trail! Beautiful views of the mountains and canyons. Great alternative to Griffith Park to avoid the crowds.

We have hiked this trail many times and loved it every time. Unfortunately the Woolsley Fire burned the trail.

Uphill and downhill terrain. Quiet on weekdays and beautiful views.

Love this hike, it’s a great challenge, has some seriously beautiful lookouts and is typically a low crowd. The rock is really cool and it takes a Little Rock scrambling but very doable. Hiking boots recommended. Bring water and keep track of trail bc it’s not clearly marked in some spots.

The views were absolutely gorgeous! You can see all of LA! Breathtaking truly! Don’t miss out. It’s mostly uphill so it’s def a great workout. I ran pretty much the entire thing. Make sure you’re wearing gripped shoes cause on the way down there are a lot of rocks you can slip on!! Just be careful and enjoy!!!

Great hike on the main trail into Sandstone Peak- gradual ascent, some minor scrambling, not too many rocks. Wonderful views across to Channel Islands from Sandstone, but a lot of scrambling and sharp rocks to get there- great for the experience, but not something to repeat often.

Definitely one of my favorites so far though not sure how often I would come since the drive in (coming from south east) is somewhat lengthy and windy. The trail is mostly easy to follow with the exception near Tri Peaks. You can never have enough sunscreen or water for this hike! Bring a hat.

Off of the Mishe Mokwa trail there is Balanced Rock trail (~ 0.8 miles in and out per map) - this is an unofficial, unkept trail and by no means would I recommend it to someone without a map because it has several false trails. However, the balanced rock is stunning up close and provides great shade for a break! Total hike, 7.6 miles, took me close to ~ 5 hours. Moderate difficulty best describes it. The views make it worth it.

New to Southern California and couldn't seem to find a hike comparable to those in Oregon. However, this trail changed everything. I did the whole loop and took the detour out to Tri peaks (which i'd highly recommend). The trail is diverse and has the most amazing views almost the entire time. Loved every second of this trail and I'd HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking to get out on a good hike.

Nothing much to see and many people. Still a nice easy hike!

Loved every step of this hike! Gorgeous views.

This is my go-to hike when I want a quick but tough workout. It takes me between 50min-1 hour to get from parking lot to the peak (summer heat + doggies wanting breaks makes it take an hour).

There is no shade along the way so plan accordingly. In the summer, it can get brutally hot so pack extra (cold) water and leave the dogs at home if it's really hot because it's too much for their paws.

You can go back down from where you came OR you can go down Stough Canyon to avoid the steep steps down. Ouch for the knees! Yes, it does take quite a bit longer to go down Stough (and then along the golf course back to parking lot) but it's worth it for the gradual descent, in my opinion.

Did this hike on Sunday morning. The weather was just perfect! once you reach inspiration point, it's all worth it. the Fog added to to adventure. so much to see and to do! I recommend this hike early morning.

Booty blast for sure. Cool views. Fun to run down.

Good hike great view. I dropped a small bag with my python hammock straps - if anyone finds it holler back :(

Did this trail at 8am this morning and the weather couldn’t have been better. It was a moderate hike that took us about 3 hrs but that was with a couple stops to take pics and to sit and relax at the top for a snack. I forgot to set the gps until .27 miles in. My watch tracked it as 6.32 miles back to the parking lot.

Definitely go counter clockwise. Amazing hike. Would do this again. The view from sandstone peak is incredible! Actually closer to 6.4 miles.
