Great in and out. The sun exposed side of the hill could definitely get sun baked, but today was cool and cloudy. Perfect! Took the fire road from the top of Crescent View up to Mt. Markham...worth the extra walk!

Great trail! Slightly narrow at times, definitely not for the timid. Wonderful views!

Some of the best views you can find! You can see Pasadena, LA, Glendale and even into Sunland and beyond! Fairly strenuous hike and NOT for beginners. I didn't finish this time due to the impinging heat and insufficient water (I brought 2 bottles), so plan to do it in the winter. Can't wait to see the view from the top! Steady incline, many switchbacks and technical areas. Shady in the early morning, full sun by mid-morning. Less experienced and/or less fit hikers may want to try to the Mesnager Loop, Rim of the Valley or Dunsmore Canyon hike in the same park. This is what hiking is about!!
