Echo the heat especially with a pup. Go early or later overall decent hike and great inclines.

If you want a good cardiovascular workout this is definitely the hike to do! It's open so there's hardly any shade. I recommend early morning start or later afternoon when the sun is not so hot . I did not see any snakes was told there are some rattlesnakes around so keep an eye out .

If you're lucky and catch the summitit and sunset on a day that there's less pollution you'll get a great view of downtown Los Angeles. This is definitely more of a moderate or tough hike. Not for beginners. Do not ever try to break in your new hiking boots on this Trail

Awesome trail, pretty brutal hike but totally worth it!! Keep pushing!

Killer hike. Felt like it was never going to end... worth it in the end though!!

The trail is kick ass right from the start. The trail-head is easy to miss but it isn't long after entering Wildwood Canyon until coming across it. It'll be on your left-hand side. You'll see an arch like stoned frame; a old, stone rock stairway leads the way to Vital Link. Take a good amount of water to remain hydrated. And remember, DON'T GIVE UP! You're almost there.

Great challenge for running.

Great hike although I only made it to the first summit and turned back. Challenging but has awesome views. It was very clear and I could see the ocean and Catalina Island from the peak. Took my dachshund with. He made it to the top with a lot of breaks but I had to carry him down. Bring lots of water since there is almost no shade. Even in January it is still plenty hot all the way up. Sad to see the mountain so destroyed by the fires.

Great hike loved it. There is a part that is pretty steep though about halfway through. Very enjoyable as a whole. We hiked to the final satellite tower and if you hiked there, the end is very enjoyable and there are some funny signs!

Steady incline to a tower up top. The path zigzags a lot and has a lot of little short cuts. At the too awaits a nice chair with the best view

my 11 year old son did it but im not going to lie we almost gave up alot of times its a Hard steep hike good luck you will need it but it's so worthy on top

It can be an easy walk, bike ride or take the long hard trails. I loved everything about this place and will be going back soon.

Beautiful hike!! Fairly challenging up hill start with lots of stunning views. I took the back side of the mountain on the way down. Easier grade on the knees with tons more amazing views

Grandmas beware, because this hike is a toughie. I'm talkin climbing, I'm talking dirt, I'm talking that thing where you just cut back and forth going straight up as you wonder if there ever truly was a top to begin with. Everything was charred from the recent fire, so it was very gram-able, if your audience is into burnt things. Overall great hike, and a great place to just find yourself.

Steep!

No shade, best early morning.

The first incline of this hike is steep enough for s good workout, so I’ll definitely come back for that alone. Large parking lot at trailhead. If you take the hike all the way down to the next canyon there is a museum and actual bathrooms, which was nice.
