Beautiful 360 views. We saw snow cap mountains and lush greens. The hike to the peak via Little Canyon is mostly uphill. On the way back, the trail directs you to go to Easy Street - don’t be fooled by the name. It took us about 3.5 hours with a break on the way to the Peak.

Closer to Easy than Moderate, this loop offers a gorgeous view of the Los Angeles Basin on a clear day.

Wouldn’t call it a hike, more like a walk up to a nice view of the coast. Great for rock climbing at all levels though, from the 60ft vertical straight up with virtually nothing but small finger holes to the 30ft with terrain you could scramble on without a harness. There is also anchors at the top.

A lot of incline in my opinion. Great hike.

The San Dimas Ave access was still CLOSED on January 10.

Sucks there is no parking beautiful scenery but you have to park really far to even get close don’t know why they don’t do parking spaces up there.

Solid option. I usually disregard moderate ratings as easy but jokes on me. There are actually moderate inclines. Parking was easy at the Greek and we jumped onto the trail somewhere across the street. Bring more water than you think you'll drink - trail is pretty dusty. There will be a consistent stream of dogs and people which can be really fun depending on how much you like dogs or people. The trail itself seems to be listed as/follow Riverside View on the signposts? so I had to open up my phone a few times just to make sure we were on the right path.

nice trail, nothing too challenging

Very good

Great trail! Beautiful views and not too intense. Like many trails in LA, there’s not a whole lot of shade, so prepare accordingly. Also a few “dodgy” areas (slippery/steep) hills on the way back down, but nothing some good tread can’t handle! Really really enjoyed the hike and the beautiful views!

Great hike with good incline/elevation gain as well as stretches of flat ground. Trails are dog friendly and must be kept on leash- unfortunately many people dont pick up after so that is one issue. Be sure to bring plenty of water and follow the signs as there are many different trails

Easy trail for getting back into it. My dog loved it.

No parking, permit only for at least a 4 block radius. Basically it's limited to those who live nearby or are willing to walk half mile to get there once they park legally. Disappointing to say the least.

nice trail really enjoyed the hike and not a lot of people

Great place for a short walk through the wilderness, If you stay on the trail you won't have to much fun. several breaks in the trail were you can venture off and get "lost". Before it was antonovich it was just walnut creek and was the easiest way to cut through san dimas into Via Verde.

knowing that this is literally a 15 minute drive from home I'd really making me kick myself because I should known about it a long time ago. great for winter hikes. ❤️❤️

Such a beautiful nature I love the area

Fun and a well groomed trail!

Lots of graffiti, lots of creek crossing with small boulders, lots of abandoned man-made/industrial items, walking along a chain link fence. We made it about 3/4 of a mile before turning back in bitter disappointment. Avoid.

Love this local trail! It’s currently under construction last time I went was 12/17/18 Beautiful trail fairly easy a couple crossings but water isn’t high.

Wonderful hike with a handful of steep inclines. I love doing this hike in the early mornings when it's not too crowded. When the weather is clear it offers great views of downtown.

Parking is easy - next to the Greek Theater or in the neighborhood down the street in Los Feliz.

Local hike to the water tower with a view of LA.

Took a wrong turn at the top towards Hogback trail and ended up running another 1.5 miles. The dotted lines aren’t necessarily trails and I don’t recommend using them on the map. Scrambled a huge hill and nearly avoided serious injury sliding down.
Great views, recommend trail shoes, nothing to sketchy but a few loose foot holds summiting the peak. (Once you’re on the right trail).

I wish these trails opened early than 9am. during the week Native Oak Trail is lightly trafficked.

Park opens at 7am on the weekends and 6am on the weekdays! Really pretty views from the top and it was very well maintained. Depending on where you’re starting, there’s a bit of an elevation increase. It was hard but, it’s pretty doable. Then after that it becomes a leisurely walk. Only a few shaded areas and the rest are mostly open, so I suggest going in the morning! Moderate amount of foot work.
