Beautiful trail. It’s super peaceful and not a heavily trafficked trail, at least when I run it.

had to park about 3/4 mile down the street, which wasn't too bad, as most of the other reviews have said. Decent trail, fire road size. When we got to the top, there were a few different ways we could go, so options are good but we didn't have time to explore further. More like an out and back for us this time but we would like to go back and try another trail. our hike was 4.75miles, 800 ft elevation (did the short hill at the top twice) in about 1:30 minutes

Took this trail downward coming from Chantry. Did a solid 24 mile hike. Reviewing this section because I wanted to give a shout out to the chap we bummed water from because we were at dangerous levels of dehydration. Lesson one, this whole area is very dry and has no water to speak of. Exiting from this location coming from Red Box, make sure you have tons of water during the summer.

Nice winding narrow cliff trail with great views. Not for those afraid of heights or children. Up top you will find the old mountain house ruins and history plaques making it my favorite hike thus far.

Nice trails in city with lots of trees for shade. However flat well maintained trails are easy not moderate

Great trail to start with, will loop but easy to miss the right turn after the water tower. Biggest downfall is the parking, there is none and city ticket you which is Unfortunate since all we are doing is enjoying our very own city.

Great workout. Nice view in lieu of copious smog. The 'Echo Phone' is a blast!

Great 6 mile workout for Trail runners or hikers. You can make it 14 miles or more very easy.

Great place I do enjoy everything about the loop

My favorite hiking trail, the sunrise and sunset is amazing and it’s quick and easy.

Great tranquility trail running or hiking. I always feel safe lots of ppl and beautiful ambience.

Awesome Park

Amazing workout and views!

This trail is great if you are looking for a solid 5 mile hike. It is a great hike if you are looking for a workout. You gain a decent amount of elevation (1400 ft) so you get high enough for a view of the San Gabriel Valley. The air conditions were pretty terrible with the smog from Los Angeles and the smoke from the several forest fires throughout SoCal. It is a very crowded trail so I prefer doing it at night and being able to see all of the city lights. I did see a rattle snake right on the trail so I would be aware and not play your music too loud so you can hear it.

Mountain biking is fun and safe in here, plenty of ppl all around so you are Never alone . . .
Moderate route with hills and fast descents and something to everyone !

I usually go to this hike but not during summer and it’s great. The only complaint I have is that some people aren’t considerate of the trail. Whether it is picking up after themselves or not making space for other people to get through I took off a star. The reason I say this is because it is a narrow trail and some can go down in pairs next to each other and the person going up doesn’t have space. All I’m saying is be mindful to stop and let that person go or not stand next to each other going up or down.

Otherwise great hike.

Nice and very hard . Yes

nice trail. good views. poor parking.

Great spot in the city to get away from the city and get your workout in... do it a couple times; once counter-clockwise and once clockwise...

Great hike last nite and way to step into my birthday..As I keep doing this hike weekly, I definitely feel a positive difference in my body and mind and its conditioning me to level up with ease onto longer and higher altitude trails.

Great hike. I was tempted to take a star off for the amount of fellow hikers. My friend and I were slow, so we were constantly moving to the side to let others pass (our problem, not theirs). However, the hike itself is worth five stars. The "destination" at the end was fun and the views were great. We started at about 6:45 am and were in shade most of the time, which was wonderful in the SoCal summer.

It was an alright hike. Physically, it had its challenging moments, but nothing not unmanageable.

Because of its location and the high foot traffic, it felt less like an adventure and more like an orchestrated attraction...a la Disneyland.

Though I have to say, there were some very nice vistas

park in the dirt lot off Fullerton Rd...its free. I love how challenging this loop is but be cautious. Someone's car got broken into in the lot and on the trail around a bend was a huge rattlesnake! I saw 3 deer on my last hike here. Use the alltrails app. I got lost the first 2 times.

We met up slightly after the sunrise for a relatively cool hike, despite the season. The mountain ridges on the way up shielded us from the sun for the most of the ascent, and a bit cloud cover was an extra gift as well. The views on the way up are unparalleled, both of the San Gabriel Valley, JPL, and the San Gabriel Mountains. Once at the top, there sits the ruins of an old resort, the Echo Mountain House. There is a super cool Echo Phone towards the end of the ruins, past the water basin, which has some bright color graffiti. There’s a lot to see up here, not to mention the panoramic views of the Los Angeles area. The whole hike took about 3 hours for us, with a break at the top. I highly recommend this one. It’s a medium difficulty trail, because of the ascent, but probably a good transition for beginner to intermediate hikers. I’m definitely coming back, but I want to try some of the longer routes, possibly from the Sunset Ridge Loop Trail.

Hope you enjoy!

went back 2nite..lost my car keys (nissan) n house key..Argh!!! Most likely at Echo Mountain point ..still love this hike..if u find them plz contact....9 20am update..someone found my keys n my note..thanks to the d lady who found them and Paul who saw my note and called...will be back this weekend for another hike..Happy Trails

Attempted my 1st nite hike ever at 10pm last night. Facing the city lights ,
one foot in front of the other, headlights on , hiking backpack equipped with 6bottles H20, snacks , battery pack and cell phone charger. I trailed with hiking poles the scenic switchbacks. I recommend to focus light on ur step ahead as you may trip or step on a innocent tarantula. Take breaks to bring your heart at a cool beat and breath in and breath out slowly when needed... Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate..once u make it to the top , u can reward yourself with a cold one

good workout in the city, gets crowded though and too much dog poop
