Started this hike at 11am on a cloudy, 70 degree day and finished at 330pm. The path is very wide and consisted of soft dirt and loose gravel. Scully Ridge would probably be great for trail runners. There is little to no shade so make sure plan accordingly. There is not too much in terms of wildlife but I was able to see quite a few birds, fire ants, and two tarantulas. The inclines and declines on this trail were fairly gradual so you probably won't need trekking poles. I did get a fair amount of loose gravel in my shoe so bring gaiters if you have them. While this hike wasn't as scenic as some of the other ones in so cal, it was very quiet once you get into the hills and I only ran into a handful of folks. I definitely enjoyed the solitude on this trail. I would go again on a cool and cloudy day. Also, there are signs at the golf course stating that the parking is for customers only and your car may be towed. There is parking right outside the entrance of the golf course which adds about half a mile to the hike.

Finding this hike is a little difficult. Once your on Greenriver Rd. turn right where the golf course sign is. I drove into the golf course parking lot, parked in the back and crossed the train tracks to get to the trail head. It's actually the end of the trail, but it's a loop so it doesn't matter.

As a hike, this trail rates low because of its proximity to main thoroughfares resulting in feeling like you never went to the wild. As a walk in the park, this trail rates well for the same reasons and its near zero elevation gains. I would recommend this trek to people looking for a flat hike that never deviates far from water fountains and restaurants.

Great trail for running

easy enough trail for mtb-ing makes for a fun little warm up before taking the much harder coal canyon fire trail to the right.
fyi,for those who cant find the trail or have posted their ride on the golf course side of the 91 you're on the wrong side. if your at the green river bike trail go west go under freeway left at coal canyon, go through gate and follow trail. if you take the fire road you are on the wrong trail.

This is a nice little hike up the middle of Coal Canyon. The final half of this hike is basically trekking up a mostly dry stream bed. We went immediately after a pretty heavy rain storm so towards the back of the canyon, the falls were actually running, but we noticed there was significantly diminished water flow by the time we left, so if you do this hike to see the falls, be sure to go right after it rains. The Canyon itself was surprisingly quiet and peaceful, especially so when you consider it's proximity to a major freeway.

A small, hidden, box canyon waterfall right off the side of the 91 freeeway at the “Offramp to Nowhere” in Coal Canyon. (Date hiked: April 2, 2011 and April 26, 2009.) Read the full write-up at:
