Great hike up and awesome views!

Trailhead closed, so started in the middle walking on the sidewalk & thru neighborhood toward the summit, then back to car and onto the ‘closed’ section. Went almost to original entrance & unclear why it was closed. Not from the area so kinda fun to see the houses on one side and the valley on the other. Glad we did it, don’t need to do it again.

Awesome near dusk. Lots of deer and great for all ages of our kiddos .

Such a fun hike! We had a great day and loved seeing the car wreck..,...what a mystery!

Took the shadier way up with the narrower roads which ended up being a great HIIT workout because of the steep inclines followed by flat roads. It was tough but it’s fine if you take breaks. No water through the streams though, but saw the Pacific Ocean. Came down on the windier steeper trail which ended up being an easy decline. Would definitely do again!

Lovely hike at sunset

It takes 1.5 walking in a concrete road to actually get in the trail. Lots of mountain bikes.

Boring. Unless you like looking into rich people’s back yards

Loved this hike

This is a fun hike. The hill back up kicks your butt and the directions are a little difficult at first, but over all it is a really great hike... and supposedly it haunted?.. if you're into that stuff.

Loved the trails. Fave was "rock it"... but watch for bikes. Great work out!!

Both sides of the trail on this map where closed about halfway through...? Signs stating “private property keep out! End of Trail.”

A good trail, great for beginners as the ascent is easy and not steep. My cousins live right above this canyon so this is a regular for a lot of our family. It’s not my favorite but it’s not my least favorite either.
The reason I gave it 3 stars is that it takes a lot of the fun out of it when you constantly have the mountain bikers sneaking up on you and small kids. Little ones are just all over the place and it makes hiking a lot more work than it needs to when you share trails with different activities. I am sure the mountain bikers feel the same about the hikers, especially the kids.

I loved this hike! I hiked it with my 9 and 10 year-old kids who also loved it. It was a bit long though...took us 2.5 hours of leisurely hiking. Instead of walking up Awma Road and then onto Aliso Creek trail I’d recommend heading to the left (behind the parking lot) following the stoney path to the left. This path leads to a creek crossing and has a lot of trees and greenery (it’s very picturesque) and leads to Aliso Creek Trail East which is not paved so a bit more of a hike compared to the Aliso Creek Trail. It then intersects with Aliso Creek Trail.

Beautiful! Goes right along the ocean with sharp cliffs. Exactly what I was looking for with the dogs. Wasn't too busy on a holiday weekend either

Was a fun trail to hike, even more fun watching the mountain bikers fly down it!

Nice hike with great views! don't miss out!

More of a walk than I hike. The majority of the “hike” is on a wide road that a car could drive up and there were way more bikers than hikers. Not much in the way of views either. Some cool rock formations were the most interesting thing. I was always waiting for something more. The loop took us about 1.5 hrs. I’m sure it would be much prettier in the Spring with the flowers blooming. This may be one of the better hikes in the area but it only gets 2 stars compared to other hikes I’ve been on around the world.

Great trail, especially considering how close it is to the suburbs. Offers a good range of activity; saw both recent mothers taking a light hike and experienced bikers on the trail.
