This is a fantastic nature walk! It really is. It isn't too difficult, it provides a beautiful view of SCV, due to it's high elevation, and it even has some semi-wooded areas that provide shade and a different kind of senery then we are use to in SCV.

Here is the bad part though. The labeling of the trails are HORRIBLE!! I, at least, was kind of left second guessing quite a few times as to whether or not I choose the right path. Alas, at the end, I even took a wrong turn, and ended up walking along the old road. That kind of killed the hiking buzz.

Don't get me wrong though! Great place to hike. I definitely want to go back and get a little more familiar with some of the trails and explore a bit. If you are a trail runner or a mountain biker, man, this place is for you!

great parking. Lonely hike with not much traffic but came across unmarked trails and dead ends. Lots of huge trees ride on the trails made it difficult to navigate through the trail. You come across some creeks off of the Whitney Canyon Road. Don't stop at the dead end, climb up and there are a couple more . lots of mosquitos and green algae everywhere.

Right off the freeway, so it's easy to find and plenty of parking. Took a little while to get far enough to not hear the cars though. Hike was nice. Easy wide trail. Couldn't find the waterfall though

Great hike, nice inclines, great views! If you start counter clock wise, pay attention to the catch the horse trail.
