Overgrown. You'll scratch your legs with plants.

The trail is a good workout. It took us longer than usual because of all the brush. The trail is very overgrown. My wife really hates that part lol. You will be going through lots of tall brush for about 65% of the hike. Once you break through the brush it’s wide open, and a steep incline to the top. I was in long pants and a hoodie over my head which made all of the brush bearable but if it was a little hotter I could have never done it with all that on. I would pass on this trail if you don’t want to be constantly bombarded by tall grasses and weeds. There are other ways to this peak. The views are pretty cool once you break through the brush.

Went on Saturday and it wasn’t heavily trafficked. Had a great hike with TONS of wildflowers- in fact you’ll have to push them out of your way as they narrow the first 20 minutes of the hike and sections of the trail headed up. Views were pretty and panoramic from the peak but it was cloudy - on a clear day I bet it’s even more amazing . Beware the last push to the peak is very sandy loose gravel and coming down we nearly slipped more than once. Other than that the rock formations and flowers were great. Recommend!

I found this to be a great trail. Diverse scenery with rock formations, many different types of wildflowers and foliage. The view at the top is magnificent and on a clear day you can see the valley and many different mountain peaks. Would highly recommend.

Nice hike, not many wildflowers yet but they’re coming! Not much water for a trail named for a creek! Nice panoramic view at the end.

Love this hike! Our 14 lb dog did great, nothing too steep or rocky for him. But still a nice challenge. Beautiful views of the entire valley, downtown and the Pacific Ocean :)

Moderate, steady climb with good views of Calabasas and big sandstone rocks. We did it with 5 and 7 year olds and were fine. A little slippery in spots but good.

Great little trail up to be ridge. Ran it with my dogs and it was a moderate single track up to the fire road. Great views of Malibu Canyon and Topanga on the backside.

Amazing trail. Fair amount of shade on the way up before you hit the fire road. Lots of options once you get up there to extend it. My girlfriend is getting over a hip issue so this was a perfect exertion level for her and her mom. Wild flowers are all blooming. Super green right now. Amazing find.
