A pleasant 6.5 mile or so out and back trail along Las Virgenes Canyon. We did it on a hot 90F day and turned back as the elevation gained and it became too hot. You can continue up to China Flats and above if inclined (pun intended) or loop back via Cheesboro.

Gorgeous green rolling hills in the spring time. Very little shade so plan accordingly when it's hot.

Great mountain bike ride. Just be aware, if you make a left turn farther up on the trail, it takes you to Las Virgenes. Found this out the hard way and decided to ride back from Las Virgenes to Victory. Great ride though.

I'd recommend this hike if you're a local. Endless rolling hills are beautiful, but beyond that it's kind of a boring trail. I did this hike in the summer though, I'm sure it's more scenic in the spring when everything's blooming.

Went after rain. wide trails, peaceful, some coyote pack sighting.

A easy trail but really busy on the Victory side. Best as a starting point for the numerous better off-shots.

Beautiful view, clean trail, hiking up hill not difficult, excellent for everyday hike.

This is my usual go to for an easy two hour hike. Most of it is gentle incline, except the hill at the half way point. The whole path is well trafficked by bikes, horses, and people.
Bikers, please remember to slow down when coming up on hikers, they have the right of way no matter how fast you want to go (yes, some bikers zip right by and I pulled an ankle once when surprised by one coming from behind).

Boring. Turned around after 3 miles. Too many loud people.

It is great and easy

This trail when completed from start to finish is as described. It starts out easy for the first 4 miles or so then begins to transition into the hills. The difficulty comes from mile 5 - 8 which is all the elevation gain. Took 5-6 hours to complete, be familiar with the map as cell service is none existent most of the way.

It is a good place I liked it

Great hike if you're looking to put in a few easy miles. There are bits of incline here and there but they are pretty easy and short-lived. There is no shade whatsoever on this trail, so keep that in mind when the sun is strong. We had to step aside for a few people of bikes but they were very considerate. Also, I believe the waterfall tag is a mistake, definitely didn't see one and can't imagine where it could have been. Parking was easy and it wasn't too crowded.

Love this hike. Not sure where the waterfall is.

This is a nice easy trail.. Have gone here a few times so close to home. Don't know why it's labeled as hard! Have came with children and dogs as well. Never done the whole thing as it huge.

Love this hike! Didn't see a waterfall though and followed the path to a T. Still a beautiful hike!

Love this hike! Gorgeous views and good hills to make sure you're getting a workout.

Pretty easy trail. It was quite muddy today from the rains last week but still gorgeous!!

The fact that I live in Topanga Canyon and have never been here bothers me, especially after getting the chance to meander through the park for the first time today. While I can only imagine how gorgeous these hills must be in the springtime, the dry late-summer hues are awfully intriguing in their own right, especially when the weather didn't jump above 80 and a cool breeze accompanied me as I snaked my way through the canyons. I feel like I just found a gold mine, and you better believe I'll be back again soon. Several several times.

It was a terrific trail...definitely challenging, but very doable. Felt really energized once the trail ended...wanted to do it again. Will be there tomorrow!

Easy loop trail. It's breathtaking! You can have your pets, too. Good for beginners to start of.

Lovely cool and cloudy in the early morning then on the way back sunny and a cool breeze. Wonderful hike for early July brown but still beautiful and quiet!

Breathtaking when it's green in the spring; oak trees, rolling green hills, wildflowers. Reminded me of "Little House on the Prairie." Many meandering alternate trails to choose from. Only reason not five stars is because there's not a lot of shade and it's probably pretty hot and brown by late summer.

Get out and hike the trails off the Victory Trailhead. The rains have made it green and beautiful. I would suggest however that you don't hike the area for a couple days after the rain. The trails get very muddy. I hiked on a Tuesday after a significant rain on Saturday and the muddy spots could be avoided. The trails showed evidence that hikers had encountered much worse conditions between Saturday and Tuesday.
