Lovely. I did an out and back of 3 miles total. The trails, for the most part, are nicely groomed. There are only a few moments where the footing takes some being careful. It's hilly but it's a doable workout.

Great views of Long Canyon, west Simi and Bridle Path.

Great workout but this part of challenger is not very scenic

Nice hike if you're short in time. Keep heading southeast if you have more time and energy to spend (lots of trails here). Good mix of incline and level walking. Not too crowded-- just have to watch for the road apples (horse droppings). I think the park service may clear the pathway occasionally as one week sections were pretty heavily covered in droppings and nearly clear a week later.

Pretty fun area with lots of trails. Good place for family and friends. For beginner to amateur riders. Depending on what kind of riding you like to do.

I like being able to approach from either side. One is steeper than the other but both climbs have their challenges and both downhills will delight. The small amount of shade at the bottom is nice before and after the climb. Saturday morning early and only one other seen on the trail. This trail is short and sweet.

I just need to update this~ I've been doing this hike a few times a week for 2 months, I have wandered thru these hills and have found even more trails to follow. I spend hours exploring this terrain, and it hasn't dissapointed yet. My dog and I love this area, for our 'close to home' weekday hikes!

this is a fun easy hike. it's a go to hike for me during the weekdays, as it's in the neighborhood I live in. I do like the uphills ~ 2 fairly steep ones, get the heart pumping!

Good for a quick hike. If you're feeling adventurous go under the fence at the top and really get up there for a nice view of Simi. Not really challenging except for the one incline in the beginning.
