One of the best hiking places in LA county , I went after 4 days of heavy rain it was very beautiful and green.

Started at 7:30am and finished before 10am. Like other reviewers, this is a busy trail. I likely saw about 100 other hikers but still really enjoyed it. Glad I started early. The trail is really well maintained.

Doing the loop was a little sketchy coming out of the canyon, probably from the recent rain. Lots of loose rock along the trail on the way up. The rest of the trail wasn’t too difficult, lots of water crossing. Great views at the top of the trail.

A great moderate hike with gentle switchbacks up the mountain and back. Beautiful views of LA city and Catalina Island. This time of year some of the trails were so pretty lined with fresh green grass. Other areas were covered in loose rock so you really have to watch where you’re stepping to avoid rolling your ankle. A lot of traffic today. Loved the views and interesting history at the top.

Amazing, luckily I was there while the park is closed so not many people there. :)

I did this hike today Jan 19, 2 days after 3 straight days of LA rain. the trail is open and unobstructed. just like all the other reviews...it is steep, but worth it. poles definitely helpful.

Missing hiker in this area, 19yo African American male, please keep an eye out for any out of place clothing etc.

Also, parts of trail are collapsed after the rain.

Great workout!! 2.5 miles up hill to the railway. Lots of cool things to see & really awesome views. On a clear day u can see the ocean. The only drawback is that it is very crowded. But overall it’s a Fun hike! Beware of the sun! Not a lot of shade at all... great in the cooler weather. Bring lots of water.

Love this hike!! Beautiful & challenging

Very fun trail, it's up hill but you get great exercise and very nice views.

Best hike I’ve done period. Great tree coverage throughout most areas - more foot traffic near bottom but once you get up and out there’s barely anyone. Note that there are some complications with the trail which can make it challenging for some people. I recall one section being pretty narrow to walk on and had to be very careful walking that section with my dog since it was a drop off to the side. Also a tree fell over the trail at one section so you have to climb over the trunk. beautiful peak at the top!

Views are great! It's best to head out before 6:30am to avoid the crowds.

Nice trail with wonderful views of LA. Too crowded, though. Get there early to find good parking.

The most being sunsets!

Good trail. Too much traffic for me.

Beautiful hike. Trails were a little muddy due to last nights rain. Went counter clockwise which made the ascent a little easier

上山走了一个半小时,下山1个小时,总长6.1miles, 很累也很爽

This may be my favorite hike in LA. Has a bit of everything. Good incline/decline, waterfall, river trail, canyon, cliffside, rock-hopping, history etc. The dog loved it and it was super quiet with some amazing views of Downtown to the Valley.

Really easy to find the trails, just keep left for the most part and there are clear signs/markers guiding you accordingly. When you get around to the top you have some options to get down and you can see how it links up to some other trails as well.

I brought my dog here and he got a tick. the trail was steep for about 1.5 long miles.

The trail is very peaceful besides the fact that it is haunted. Suitable for trail running if you're training for uphill portions. I had to mostlt power hike.

This is one of my favorite trails in Santa Clarita. It offers two trails, one approximately 5.5 miles and another approximately 1.5 miles. This trail is often heavily trafficked, and this includes mountain bikers (why they choose to ride on this pedestrian trail is beyond me). In the summer, watch out for rattlesnakes.

Definitely worth the hike. Such a great work out. Switchbacks at the beginning of the trail did not disappoint. Beautiful scenery all the way to the top. It was fun reading the historical placards on the trail describing the old Mt. Lowe Railway. When you get to the top there is plenty to explore at the Echo Mountain House ruins. I could image what it was like at the turn of the century with local Angelenos escaping the city for the peace and quiet of this place. The sunsets are out of this world. Yelling into the Echo phone was fun. Will be coming back for sure. Next time the plan is to make it to Inspiration Point. Another 2 mile trek past Echo Mountain.

Beautiful loop hike. I started on the left side which is good because is the more challenging half. Pay attention to All Trails map and look at the path to avoid getting lost. Had to park a mile before the start since gate was closed due to Gov shutdown:

Amazing never ending hike. I started at 1. If I would of started earlier I would of kept going.

Terrible. unless you like Mexican trash left on the trail and Mexican boom boxes playing their music super loud. They have no respect.

Great hike, great views...

alltrails says 4 miles but when I finished down at the road my fitbit said 8 miles. this trail is beautiful. the views are awesome. the trail along the cliff gets tight at times when u have oncoming hikers that you have to share the path with lots of switch backs along the cliff, and random spots of shade. it's about a consistent 4 mile climb up. challenging but not impossible. make sure to take breaks when needed and bring at least 2L of water. when u get to the top make sure to just stop and take a look around. the sights are awesome. they have a echo phone back along the back towards the back of where the building was that you can yelll things into, u wait like 6 seconds as it travels through the cliffs and then echos back. the way down u can def catch some speed so be careful. otherwise, easy peasy.
