We loved this hike — we did the full loop, and it really is 360 views the whole time. We will be back!

To everyone: Perfect for being in nature and enjoying very different views. Mostly a fire road but narrower at the beginning & end. Good spacing for Covid and not technical. Contrary to what some other reviews say, there is shade here and there. Still, bring water and food, this is a long strenuous loop. To Spartans / Trail running: this is THE beast workout. I ran it in under 3h and was gassed out at the end. Steady uphill in the first half (counterclockwise) and a few ups and down in the second half. Save yourself for the last 1-2 miles (you’re going up again). Pro tip: if you’re ready to simulate a beast, throw some burpees in.

Hiked the full Bulldog loop on Presidents day. This was a TOUGH dayhike but absolutely beautiful area. Really great workout. The MASH site was small but kind of cool.

Amazing trail! It rained the day before and the views were gorgeous. Fogs in the valley and snow in distant peaks are impressive to see once I finished a few miles of climbing the Crags road.

It’s mostly fire road but the elevation gains make it difficult. There’s not much shade so bring plenty of water. When you think you’re done because you’re off the mountains, you’re really not!

Amazing trail! Steep climb up the bulldog trail, but then really evens out. Bring lots of water and some shade - not a lot of chances to escape the sun. Removed one star because you have to wade through dogs/speakers/maskless hikers for the first 1-2 miles.

I started the trail from the top of Corral canyon, went counterclockwise, unbelievable views, my favorite trail in the L.A area, bring min 3 liters of water, wear a hat, not much shade on the trail.

This is a nice trail with a moderate incline. The trail has both exposed and shady areas. A lot to see and do on this trail.

What a perfect day to do this hike. Temperatures in the mid-60's and not a shadow to be seen all day. The hike up is relentless, but mostly on the fire road. We went counter clockwise and don't think it would have been much different the other way. The views are amazing, mountain to the ocean. And the section near the campsite with the pink ribbons helped keep us on the trail. This is not a summer hike since there was hardly any shade. The overcast conditions made this hike a 5 star hike!

I did the loop counter clockwise. Total mileage I got was 16.3 miles, but that’s with going up to Mesa Peak. The trail is all fire road making it very easy to follow except for when trying to close the loop. Luckily, there were ribbons tied to branches to help guide the way. AllTrails map is off when trying to get you back to where you started. I just followed the road to Grassland Trail to get me back. Overall, it’s a good trail while all the national forests are still closed. It offers good distance and decent gain, however I would recommend doing this when temperatures are cooler.

Way more altitude than one needs. Do this ride as a full day. Don’t try and crush it. Map is off.

Did this trail yesterday from the main parking lot at Malibu Creek State Park. At about 6.5 miles from the start & once we were on the backbone trail, my partner and I encountered two huge sections of digger bees on the trail/service road. These were encountered 0.5 miles before the stone mandala. It took up the width of the road and were approximately 40 feet long. While intimidating, they are docile and I recommend you walk slow and calmly if you choose to continue. Due to the marine layer on the mountains yesterday, we made a wrong turn and ended up on the road. If you do end up on the road, go to the right (decreasing mile markers) and then take the service road up to the bulldog road. While on the bulldog road we encountered 3 more sections of digger bees but these were smaller patches that didn’t take up the entirety of the road/trail but still exercise caution. After the bulldog trail meets up with another to go to the MASH site, it was a little overgrown. Wonderful trail though: Gets elevation out of way at beginning, beautiful views, fairly wide, and after elevation gain it levels out for the rest. Be sure to practice social distancing, be safe, be responsible, practice Leave No Trace principles, and have fun!

We had a great hike today. Although this trail is mostly fire road, the spring flowers and view made it a nice escape. Most people wore masks. It was exposed and hot. We took a wrong turn and wound up on the street for a few miles. Doh!
