Google took us to a private residence area where you cannot park. We parked at the Christianitos Park and started the trail at the intersection of Avendia Pedriza and Avenida Pico. Trail was moderately challenging going uphill and hot with some small trees providing a little bit of shade every now and then. The trail is behind the houses, so if you want to be in the middle of nature this might not be ideal. Relatively quiet however. Took us a little over two hours round trip.

Excellent trail with lots of variations. Open trails surrounded by hills and the walking up along trail in take ya. Once through tales hills it opens to the most gorgeous open space. I started on la pata at the dog park. Came to 9.3 miles. Will start on pico next time. Truly enjoyed it.

Beautiful views, but a ton of trash. Most likely due to being along residential neighborhoods the whole time.

Good trail. Only reason I give this 3 stars is its proximity to the houses. It bends around estates and apartments which sort of takes away the experience for me. However, it’s close to home so for the distance, it’s pretty solid. Some decent inclines and declines to keep you busy.
