Great trail and beautiful views. Part of it was closed so we couldn't do the full loop.

It’s about 2.2 miles of incline (don’t expect to be able to talk to your hiking buddy) and then a breezy 2.2 miles down. Gorgeous views of the beach and mountains and mansions. Mostly rock/dirt path. There’s also a pretty meadow on the way back. Parking is $10 and there are bathrooms at the bottom. Conveniently close to the Westwood area.

Hiked it today with 2 colleagues who were visiting from out of town. We parked in the lot for $10 and while we passed a few people, it wasn’t crowded. We started up to the left, which was somewhat steep, but loved the views on the way up and took a couple breaks to enjoy. Watching the sunset from the top was amazing and it was a quick, easy hike back down as we completed the loop.

This hike shouldn’t be labeled easy. It’s a great workout but not for beginners.

Great hike, but for a scandinavian this was not a category easy :))) wauw it goes up up up.

Excellent hike! Good length (took about 2 hours to complete) and moderate intensity. Go up the left side of the loop first if you want a steeper incline. The views along the way and at the top are amazing. This would be a great hike to take active out-of-town visitors. You get a great view of the ocean, Santa Monica, and the mountains. $10 to park in the park, or you can try to find street parking.

Great views at the top!
We went up the Temescal Canyon trail which I recommend then come down on the Temescal ridge trail once you reach the top.
Why?
The canyon trail is shaded for the most part (good cuz the SoCal sun can heat up real fast). There incline can be tough for slightly out of shape people (like me

Easy three-mile loop with panoramic views of Los Angeles.

This hike is one of my regular trails. It's a good uphill workout, then a nice shady downhill return on the loop. I usually go left (the west side/sunny side) up what seems like the steeper incline first then return past the "waterfall" (it's barely a drip) through the shady canyon back down. There is a nice overlook at the top to reward your climb!
Dogs are not allowed on the trail, even on-leash, but I see them a lot.


Note: the address someone put below for Los Liones Dr is not for this hike, it's for the Los Liones Trail (a few miles away.) This hike begins inside the state park at Temescal Canyon Rd and Sunset Blvd. Some street parking is available on Sunset with a short connector trail into the State Park.

Pretty easy hike, about two hours at a normal pace. But you get your heart rate up for about half an hour of it towards the middle as you climb a few hundred feet.

Fun trail but it does get crowded on the weekends.

Beautiful views, but the trail is pretty narrow and difficult to maneuver.

Though it’s an Easy hike it was strenuous for this 60 year old but much appreciated. Not too crowded and the sounds of the city are far away.

Went on this hike with my son and it was really fun! Narrow road so you just need to step aside every once and a while. We checked out the waterfall on the way back but it was non existent but still a beautiful hike back.

Amazing views
