The most beautiful view at the top!

it is a very refreshing hike. we started by 7 AM. it's steep at the start but gets easier as you go. The address on Google takes you little farther. so I recommend using directions from all trails.

Great hike and views. We took Willow up and Laurel Canyon trail back down. Great 3.4 loop. Good mix of difficulty and ease.

Beautiful view and slightly moderate hike. Short and simple.

Liked this one. The last half mile is butt burner but use extreme caution with mountain bikers (clockwise on loop).

We added additional mileage by making stops at Cave Rock & Dripping Cave. I liked the access here to the park/trails because it is way less busy than Top of the World.

Perfect for getting into reality with a toddler and a stroller. Mellow, beautiful, relaxing. Kiddo loves the bunnies and duckies at dusk. Coming back for the cave...

This is a great place for bringing family to do leisurely walks or biking. Beautiful views, especially as sunset approaches. Paved road located in center of this valley for biking/jogging/walking with houses scattered all along the tops of the hills. More of a weekend location to take the kids for leisurely fun than for hiking.

What a great trail! Great views!

Very steep incline and a pretty short trail... but very beautiful for a quick hike.

Great hike up and awesome views!

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!

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

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!!

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.

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.

This is an incredible beautiful hike, it is decently challenging.

Beautiful hike in the Aliso wilderness.

Enjoyed beautiful nature. Relaxing, feeling fresh air.

Fun but that car wreck trail was not easy
After I finished I saw that part was rated as difficult
Beautiful tho!
