Our new favorite trail. The stiffness was just right, not too stiff or to plat. Wide path, which gave you a safer feeling. People also bike here. And also, if you go down the path, you can reach the water. The view was amazing too. Especially with the bench.

It’s a very nice and peaceful spot for a brisk walk or a job. It isn’t isn’t much for hiking, but it’s great for the family and the dogs.

plenty of restrooms, lots of people so u feel safe and good for all ages

A lot of incline in my opinion. Great hike.

Great hike, steady up-hill the entire way up, back down was very easy. Beautiful views the entire way. Will definitely go again.

Great trail! d : )

This Hike was challenging for me cause of the 3 miles uphill but I made it and it was totally worth it. Beautiful views.

Great little hike, especially for young kids. Can even take a stroller if you wanted.

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

excellent training Trail

this was a steady incline on a fire Road all the way to Henninger Flats if you measure it from the Eaton Canyon Nature Center parking lot it's 8.2 miles round trip if you park on the street you can cut almost two miles off of that some beautiful views from the top a lot of pine trees and solitude

This trail was nice and open! I liked the wide, dirt path all the way up, which was perfect for a conditioning hike. I recommend doing this hike in the morning on a hot day since there is no shade at all! The trail also wraps around the mountain a lot, you get a lot of different and beautiful views. I definitely recommend!

I liked that there are plenty of places of shade. It is not hard. A few hills, but not steep at all. I took my dog and it was okay. There is a spot for free parking, which is nice.

Took our German Shepard on a December Saturday. Perfect for dogs and inexperienced hikers. Saw a few deer and the people we passed saw coyotes. Great views from the top. We parked on the street and started on black walnut trail and looped around to come out on powder canyon. Starts uphill and the rest is easy. Definitely will do again.

This my favorite place to go in the mornings :D
The way up can be a bit hard if you go midday. I would recommend doing this early in the day. Take a hat and some water because you will be in the sun for most of this hike. Once you reach the top you will have a beautiful city view. The top also has different places to camp, sit and relax. There’s currently no water up there. A hike you won’t regret <3

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.

The trail was extremely easy due to it being well maintained. A portion of it was a preserved habitat for California Gnatcatchers so there are no dangers to it. I ended up taking multiple different paths and ended up at the "Top of The World" just in time for a beautiful sunset. Total trip was about 7 miles and almost 2 hours.

Recommend for beginners or casual hikers.

I hiked this for the first time and it was a nice hike! I ended up doing 8 miles because I took a few wrong turns

plenty of shade, horse trail. good work out

Dogs only allowed on 100-yard trail. The signage for the other trails are marked no dogs.

What a poor decision by the organization managing this resource.

The people who follow the rules will leave. The people who don't follow the rules will take their dogs anyway, and leave their dog crap everywhere.

This area seems like a "checkbox" item that someone used to fulfill a political requirement. It's not designed for the real world.

Only ran this once, several years ago during the government shutdown. It was eerie quiet with the campground not in use, and there were deer poking around. A steady up and a steady down, good for training for longer trail races.

We clocked in at 5.5 miles. We did it as a sunset hike. We started at 4:20 I think I would have started it at 3:30 so we get the sunset coming back down! You must park on the street there is no parking lot. To get to the top just cross the bridge and stay to the left this app have the correct downloaded road. Dogs are allowed on leash! It does get steep on some parts. There are three benches you pass on the way up. when you pass the Henninger Flats sign there are benches to the left. There is also a geological marker to the left of the sign of your staring at it. Bring a head lamp if your hiking it in the dark! Over all it’s a beautiful sunset hike!

I got a late start and didn’t get to finish my hike today, I will be returning however I plan to wait until it’s an overcast day as there is no shade on this trail. Trail was extremely clean ❤️


Love this trail.

nice little hike, you can get a decent workout on the uphill portions and just saunter on the down hills and enjoy the outdoors, you can also do this as an out and back by hiking straight through to schabarum park, about 4 miles round-trip more or less where there's lots of shade and tables for a picnic.I park on Fullerton road so I don't have to drive up a dirt road,walk up where black walnut trail starts and cut over on nogales trail ,if you're lucky the sprinklers will be on, feels good but on a hot dusty day,then head up and over on powder canyon

fullly exposed, decent incline, use the map its poorly marked

Love all the trails here
