The magnificent boulders and panoramic views of much of the Angeles National forest is what awaits you on this trail. This time of year I recommend getting out there really early, although I imagine this area gets amazing in the winter with some light snowfall.

The trail starts near the day use area of the chilao campground. There is a bit of an incline at first, then it flattens out around horse flats, and continues up the mountain to the top of Hillyer.

Bring plenty of water because water is out right now at Chilao and Horse Flats. Be advised!

Here's a spotify playlist to download for the trail!
