Great day for a hike!! In between the rain we hiked and experienced the beautiful views of snow capped mountains and a clear view of downtown Los Angeles!!!
Everyone we met was grateful for their time on the trail that day!!

Great trail with a view, especially good if you have a couple hours available to get some cardio in. Moderate steepness that can get your blood pumping if you keep a good quick pace. Or, if you want to take it slow and enjoy the scenery this trail is great for that as well. Not a desolate trail by any means but rarely over crowded. Keep your eyes and ears open for mountain bikers. 4/5 stars because of paid parking.

This hike was amazing. The views were breathtaking , the trail is well maintained and the park rangers were friendly and informative. If you are looking for a walk, place to run, hike or a place to photograph, this place is for you.

Good trail for a nice run and some easy level hiking. No need for hiking shoes, tennis shoes are fine. Families with kids and strollers are there all the time. Get out and get outside.

Started app 2 mi in.

Rangers are condasending a$$holes. Read every sign before your hike and get back to your car before 5 or get a ticket. Negative first experience at this trail bc of this. I won't be back

Very safe trail. The rangers are very active and super friendly. The only thing I didn’t like was the sun exposure.
There is no shade after the first mile and you will need to bring hat and water.

I love this hike. It is well maintained and busy. I was able to go alone a couple times but felt very safe. There are people from all ages and walks of life. A total melting pot. New moms with their babies, teens, couples, groups, and even seniors. There are a few porta-potties on the trails as well as benches for those needing some rest. Great views and 5 miles of gorgeous hills.

I only rate this 3 stars because I don’t like to be out in direct sun. I get sun sick. But if that doesn’t bother you, this is a nice little hike. Nice views when you get to the top. It was a nice walk/hike before an early Christmas dinner.

ALWAYS worth it. 'Nuf said. Fire road, sunscreen, vistas, some shade. Porta-John at lot and near the top. About a 600' gain if you do the loop. Well-maintained.

If you’re not a resident it can get pricey here but I seem to keep coming back. It’s my perfect morning cardio. Nothing too crazy, but just enough to get you’re heart going. The people are extremely friendly. It’s a great over all trail for running and beautiful scenery.

Oct. 2018: Great trail. if you are a beginner beware and give yourself at least 2 hrs. There is a fee of $5-7 Dollars. If you are not out of the parking lot by 6 p.m you will get a parking ticket. If you get locked in the parking lot be prepared to pay a fine. I remember when it was a free trail and you didn't have to worry much about fees, tickets or fines. But it's a great trail. Recently went on a hike and came across a few turantulas, squirrels and baby deer. They are harmless if you keep to yourself and treck on. You will also frequent a lot of older people who ride up and down the mountain like no one's business. They may either make you feel like wuses or inspire you to treck harder...none the less they are always nice and they always say hello. In the end, it's worth it once you complete it. Welp, I'll leave you to it! peace

It’s a good trail! You have to pay for parking and starting OCTOBER 1,2018 the price of parking will go up to $5 and on Saturday and Sunday will be $7 in the morning! Soooo I most likely won’t be here. That’s a bit ridiculous. Other than that it $3 and $5 on weekends! It’s not many rocks which I like and tells you how far you have gone! Enjoy

Great loop trail. Start left at the fork for a slightly more difficult hike. You’ll start with a steady, steep incline but you’ll be rewarded with a more flat and shaded descent.

This trail was difficult but so worth it
