Maybe a silly question, but is there any concern for coyotes on this trail?

The trail is a semi maintained dirt access road and the route doesn't have an actual destination. I kept going east past the concrete slab on the saddle to a summit. The best part of this trail is the changing vegetation and views. The route is also good exercise. It is about 2 1/2 miles (or more if you keep going like I did) straight up. I recommended starting out as early as possible as this is a fully exposed trail. Also, wear bug spray. Although someone has said it is ok for mountain bikes I would say the only reason for MTB on this trail is to build endurance. Overall, worth doing once...especially because it was convenient...but probably won't do it again.

Parking: I parked on the street (Chiquita Lane) and climbed over a white gate. This is not a marked trail with an official trailhead.

My me and my son hiked just past the old water tank. A total of 7.3 miles. The trail continues for a while. You can take it to the 330. The trail has no shade. Bring plenty of water and food if you are going to make a day of it. I enjoyed the views. You can a really nice view of the Arrowhead.

There is no official trail head that I can see. You enter through a closed white gate onto an old road that eventually turns into an exposed trail.

This is my weekend hike as I live really close, these hills are right behind my house and I feel like they're my own LOL. You can go up without having to trespass any private property or jump any fences . There's two ways, start from the corner of Lomas Privadas Dr. and Daley Canyon Rd. and go into a small forest w a road that turns into a dirt road, then go up to the left OR take Sterling Ave all the way up unto it back into the foothills and walk up and then to your right. This hill range is beautiful and as you go up higher and deeper into the canyon you're surrounded by hills and there's more vegetation and flowers. I see very few people here, usually the same 3-4, it's so peaceful and you can go up and walk from hill top to hill top, you could probably spend all day here but my hikes have been at most 3 hours round trip. I recommend this one
