Beautiful trail with amazing plant life, and Wildlife. Please pick up after your dogs and don't leave any toilet paper and other trash. Make sure to take lots of water after the first my and a half if you go for new officials taking area, the trail gets into higher elevation and he gets very warm and very exposed to the Sun. I do recommend going from the official staging area which is another mile or so on Big Tujunga Road.The older Trail entrance is really overgrown and very eroded. So the official trailhead route is longer, but it is a beautiful addition and the larger staging (parking) area makes it worth it.
