This is a decent urban hike, more man-made stuff than nature. (Fellow pet parents: Please scoop the poop!)

What makes it interesting is that it reaches the high point in the San Rafael Hills, giving you a different vantage than you get in the San Gabriels or Verdugo Hills, for example looking down into the Rose Bowl.

By no means a "destination" hike, but it could be an interesting add-on to another hike in the area, to give you a different perspective.

This trail came up in a search for kid-friendly and easy hikes. I guess it's easy, but It just wasn't a very pleasant hike. It seems a lot of people walk their dogs here, so there was a lot of dog poop along the trail. (At the end of our trek my 3- year old was calling it the "poop trail."). Other than that, there just wasn't enough redeeming about this trail. We had to walk under an electrical tower and a bunch of wires, and there really weren't any wildflowers to speak of, but maybe that was the time of year. We won't be coming back here.
