Hours: 7am to sunset

Ran the track in about an hour. If you haven't trained for uphills like me, the beginning will have your calves burning. Second half is mostly flat with a slight incline. Scenery is decent considering it's local.

not bad. had lots of fun

Decent hike, not too strenuous, and the foot traffic was fairly moderate

Everything is kind of burnt up from the fires, and compound that with the dry conditions, the scenery was all that.

I’d probably only do this again after a lot of heavy rain and when the lake reopens

Has a really challenging hills and beautiful nature walk ,, careful on weekends a lot of kids and dogs ,,, clean bathrooms .. parking lot gets very full ,,, bring your pass

Pretty cool trail. A lot of different options to make your hike easier/harder and shorter/longer. Go early tho because it gets super busy. We went at 0700 and it was already pretty busy.

Awesome hike. Perfect length. Did see quite a bit of dog poo everywhere. People should be more considerate when bringing their dogs. However it the trail was very enjoyable.

Too crowded even on a weekday afternoon. Too many bikers and people playing loud music while you’re walking, scaring off all wildlife. Not to mention. Due to the fires, only the outside area is open, causing you to hear a ton of traffic while you’re at it. Big nature lover, but between everything, you just feel like you’re waking along a street and there happens to be some nature nearby.

Definitely a workout! Always fun bringing my boys. A lot as changes since the fire but it still a gorgeous place to hike.

This trail is back open. A couple of tough hills but totally worth it and rewarding.

Great trail and views. Very fun

I have been here 4 times. It's not bad, but definitely not high on my list of favorite hikes or hikes that I can't wait to return to. The first time I came here was a solo hike. I brought some family member the 2nd time and thought this would be good since my niece has a young family and figured the trail around the lake would be short and easy enough for them to handle. The third time I came with a friend that I hadn't seen in a long time and we hiked the whole thing and that gave us time to "catch up". The last time I came here was for an Earth Day 10K.

Pros- easy to find and doesn't require a long drive to get there; there is ample parking in the lot ($3 I believe)...you can also park at the southwestern end at a school(during non-school hours) or on the street near the school for free; different connecting trails to make your hike suitable to the level of difficulty or time that you have (I have done as little as 2.5 miles here to as much as 6 miles); some steep hills that seemed much steeper when I was running the 10k that gives you a good workout if you choose that trail on the southern side; you can bring your dog

Cons- on the busy side and surrounded by neighborhoods so you don't get the feeling of really getting away from the hustle/bustle; no cool destination or view that you must see esp. since the lake is dry.

it's a work-out with a great view.


Great hike, even after the fire.


Great place for beginners to start hiking!

A good portion of the park was burned in the recent fires but they've since opened some of the trails again. Went today and there were several crews surveying the damage and tractors removing dead trees. The hiking is always good here, though. Easy trails good for running.

Not my favorite, (kinda boring), but I come here because it’s my local trail. Some great climbing, well maintained terrain, not much shade via the east ridge route. It can get very hot during the warmer days. VERY popular on the weekends, so I go during the week. Many hikers go here with their dog children.

Peters Canyon Trail
Relatively easy trail with minimal hills and nice shady spots. Easy for everyone!

East Ridge View Trail
More hilly and can be steep at parts. No shade from trees. Nice views of the houses though!

Nice short hike that is easy to get to unfortunately the recent fire burned the natural vegetation it’s starting to grow back

Closed due to fire :(

Keep in mind that Peter's burned in the Canyon Fire 2 and it may be while before the vegetation comes back. For now, it is closed.

Temporarily closed from recent fires.

Burnt on 09OCTOBER2017 from Anaheim Canyon Fire

Tough to hike @ 104 degrees

It's an easy scenic trail.

Cool views open space helpful signs

I love the hills on this trail, great workout! Go early there isn't any shade! Beware of rattlesnakes! Have seen 2 in the last week!

The lake loop is easy. There is another trail with hills and is more difficult.
