Great trail. 5mi loop that has a great incline for your workout. The road is dirt and pretty wide and clear as hikers, walkers and bikers abound in this popular trail. Scenic views on a clear day even to downtown LA.

Fun but a little hard on my 3 and 4 year old. Not a lot of shade

Challenging hike with nice areas to jog or do sprints. I like going up the left side as it is more steep and I come down the same way once I reach the peak of the hike. Coming down the other way just takes too long...

I would consider this an easy hike. We went to the left and the first 2 miles had an incline, but after that it was a pleasant walk. We completed the hike in 2 hours with stopping to take pictures. There were mile markers at half mile increments and the trail/road was well maintained. We went on a Saturday morning so it was heavily trafficked. Pass the first parking lot so that you can park closer to the trailhead in the second lot. Parking costs $5 on the weekends. Beautiful hike!

I'd consider this an easy hike rather than moderate.... saw deer, many hummingbirds, wildflowers & lots of Portable potties! Super fun :)

***Two Parking Lots!***
Don't accidentally park at the lot 1/4 mile from the base. Drive all the way to the main lot (unlike me ;) )
Other than that it's a good trail. Big climb either direction you go. Coming back in it's a steep decline. Lots of traffic which I like for safety and lots of eyes.
Happy trails!

Great trail loop. Heavily trafficked in the weekends so there's not as easy parking. Can be as challenging as you desire by increasing or decreasing pace.

Very nice trail, with breathtaking views! It's sometimes relatively steep, but the pathway is easy to walk on (large and without any obstacles).
However, watch out for the tarantulas and snakes, especially when it gets dark. Apparently, there are also tarantula wasps (whose sting is extremely painful) and mountain lions around there, but we didn't see any.

It's a challenge for a kid. Took my 9 year old and went to the left about 9 am. Took about 3 hours with plenty of stops in 92 degree heat for the 5 mile hike. Manageable if you like heat and climbing. Some rattlesnakes but other than that nice workout. Left side is steeper than right side, benches in left side about mile 1.5 up no shade and all along which is cool but little shade. Road is decent no major rocks. We took about 50-60 ounces of water and came back with nothing, remember a 9 year old. 2 bathrooms stalls about 2-3 miles apart. Parking is $5 per weekend 4 hours, $3 weekdays, pay and slide the ticket over your dash. This is for people with some hiking experience or endurance. Dogs and bikes are welcomed. Sunblock, water, and a good hat... a small hand towel won't hurt either for sweat.

Great for a morning or sunset hike. Great views. Only downside is very limited parking when busy which is often.

Me and my buddy mainly use this trail for weekly running as its kind of short for experienced hikers but still good for newcomers. Mixed crowd age wise. Watch out for the old timers flying downhill on their bikes though.
