Nice trail. The climb is fairly rocky with some sections of pretty loose dirt as well so wear good shoes. Second half is nice and peaceful. Lots of birds to see and the wildflowers are starting to bloom.

HikingGreat!No shadeScramble

Fun hike. Up all first half but not too bad. Dog and kid friendly. You can hear the freeway for the first mile or more. Not much shade. No water in the streams. No facilities at the trailhead. Cell service was good all the way. Dusty. Not crowded. Also it’s about 3.2 miles and only one up and down, the map says double and it’s wrong.

HikingGreat!

Great workout. Raw at some points. Had to use the map from AllTrails to not to get lost. It’s pretty well signed when you follow the arrows (we ended up doing it backwards). Some views very gorgeous, nice shade. Kids and puppy approved !

Lots of freeway noise for the first half and the trail is hard to stay on unless you’re looking at the AllTrails map because there are signs for Elsmere Canyon Trail that are not the correct route.

Nice workout going up rocky single track trail to ridgeline trail with views. Look for small natural arch on left at 1.1 mile mark. Descend into wooded canyon for return. Saw two bobcats near dry creek bed.
