An easy in and out. Great if you are local because it is quick.

Trail? It’s more of a service road for the powerlines that people living nearby let the dogs use the bathroom on. Pretty view of DTLA and the mountains. Will not be back.

I guess I picked the right day to try this one out. It had been raining for a couple days and there was lots of snowfall in the lower elevations of the mountains nearby. Very clear with low puffy storm clouds. The view at the top was amazing. All the way to the ocean!!! You start out on a dirt road that turns into a paved fire or service road. Not much of a hike but if you time it right...epic views.

Great views on a clear day and easy trail to follow. However, half of it is on a road, and there was a lot of animal scat along the trail. Nice otherwise and not heavily trafficked.

Easy little nature walk. Doable in under 45 min. Excellent views of Pasadena and downtown LA. Half paved half dirt. Nothing too special.

I like the trail although I would not rate it as easy. The big draw back is that the trail is poorly mark

This is a service road, good for cardio. Better weather may provide nice views of the area, but it was overcast today.

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.
