Great little hike. Most of the hike has a nice wide trail that is well maintained (and part of it paved). The end of the hike was through a residential neighborhood. Nice views of the valley, but nothing amazing. Not too crowded, but passed people every couple of minutes. Saw Mountain bikers, dog walkers, and trail runners in addition to people out for a walk. Great place to get some exercise.

It was more of a walk than a hike. Plenty of people around and a nice stroll through the residential neighborhood.

Love it! Plenty of trashcans along the trail for your dog bags. Parking was not a problem. Only confusing bit is part of the trail is just the sidewalk of a residential street. Also restrooms were out of toilet paper.

Training for a bigger trip with a 50 lb backpack, not my favorite place to hike by far, not a fan of the LA city hikes, but served its purpose for a short commute and quick hike for lunch.

Great easy hike to take with a small/old dog :) Ended up taking the rainforest trail afterwards to make our hike a little longer.

Fun hike to take with my 8 year old dog! After we finished the loop we went ahead and did the Rainforest trail which made it all worth it.

Not bad it is only a 2.7 mile hike. You get a good sweat and a nice workout. I will do it again.

Love the fact that it is half shady so you don’t sweat balls off in the summer.

This is my favorite neighborhood hikes. Very new bathrooms located in the parking lot. And there are a couple hidden trails. The main trail is great for jogging or walking. At the end you can take a stroll in the quite neighborhood with gorgeous houses. (See if you can find the old Kardashians house)

Come here all the time for a little exercise. First quarter of the trail is the hardest, then it’s a nice and easy incline and then descends at a comfortable pace. Nice view at the top and lots of people usually around. Partially paved in the beginning, but mostly a dirt path for the rest of the hike.
