Beautiful, easy trail. Mostly flat. Mostly exposed. Once you get to the Dripping Cave Trail, you'll find one of the prettiest spots in Aliso & Wood Canyons. Stop at the cave and read the story! It's fascinating. Lots of rabbits, quail and deer in the area. Bring sunscreen in the summer, there is limited shade.

The trail is not well marked so we got lost but otherwise it's an easy flat trail. We ended up hiking for the total of almost 11 miles, thank God it wasn't hot but cool nice weather the whole time we hiked.

It was a good hiking trail but it is a long distance trail to get to Dripping Cave ( 7.5 miles of walking) . The map was not really helpful... it took us 3.5 hours to complete the trail since we have to stop many times for breaks n water ( we have kids with us) . The weather could get warm and dry so bring water bottles n fruit for snack is a plus ... to keep you hydrated. The cave is nice n many shades around . Beside We did hiked up to Cave rock which was more challenges but the view was worth it to be on top of the rock to see the canyon ...

The trail is very well kept up. Decided to make the trip into a loop around the top rim of the canyon. Overall was fun. Pretty easy. Bring water.
