It’s a decent workout if you’re in the area.

As a more advanced hiker, this trail was pretty easy. Definitely a good hike with a good view.

Good view. Starts with stairs. Nothing too exciting, but good to get out.

Good conditioning trail, lots of grades, first two are most challenging

Pretty steep trail! Hard to know what was the path and just fire clearance. Nice view of irvine from the top. Got a good work out.

Nice easy neighborhood hike.

This trail has NO markers. I did 2.3 miles, as I couldn't figure out the 4.2 advertised course. A lot of shrubbery has been hacked down, and couldn't figure out where was the"trail" path? I used All trails to figure out where I was , but it showed me I was not on main trail (RED).

After, I drove around Turtle Rock, and I didn't get any additional info, that could have made my hike any better.

I could see areas that have vegetation hacked, and no trail paths.

I won't be back.

A good exercise hike in the city.

First time climbing a hunk of Earth this large. Truly impressive view at the top. Didn't walk the loop, simply found a trail off of Turtle Rock Rd and climbed. Small in retrospect, yet still a solid experience and very close by.

The hill at the beginning was a great challenge and had beautiful views. The hike down the back side of the hill..... don't forget your machete to clear you path..... it's like walking through the jungle.

Great conditioning hike with 2 steep climbs. Definitely a work out and it's right in the middle of irvine. I like to do this one to keep in shape for weekend hiking trips. Mostly dirt trails and some pavement. Lots of people on this trail as it is in a residential area. You can do this in sneakers no problem but I still prefer my hiking boots. Water - a bottle is fine, you won't need too much since this loop only takes 1-1.5 hours. Great hike to do before or after work.

There is a very steep initial climb to get to the top but after that, the trail is easy and mostly flat or mildly climbs. Though, the view at the top is fantastic! Would be pretty easy to bring a picnic lunch or dinner to the top.

Fun but short hike. Challenging enough of you do some trial running. The big draw here is the views. Wonderful views looking west towards the ocean and north towards the mountains. Looking forward to coming back in the evening to see the skyline lit up at night.

Nice, casual walk. Steep in beginning. Great views. Got crowded around 7:30PM.

More of a walk than a hike. Not a huge incline, lots of steps. Pretty nice view of Irvine and UCI from the peak though.

Not a hiking spot. This is a walking spot. You climb some flight of stairs, climb a few steep rocks & get to the top to an amazzzzinggg view of Orange at the top. I went at midnight (no patrol I guess) and it was perfect. I would definitely suggest a visit if you are in the area.
