This is a good access point to the west side of dirt Mulholland. It's good for young children being introduced to trail biking because there aren't any real steep sections and usage is much lower than Reseda or the east side of dirt Mulholland. The stats presented are for a very quick and easy hike to Reseda Blvd but you can easily get to the Temescal Canyon Fireroad and all the trails and features it accesses. The views from Mulholland are excellent. To the north you look across the Valley to the Santa Susanna and San Gabriel Mtns. Looking to the south are the peaks and ridges of the Santa Monica Mtns closer to the coast.

Quite overgrown. My legs are pretty scratched up! Was a good experience regardless!

Pretty good trail, there are a ton of places to branch off of. There were a lot of dogs, and we were able to bring ours and they enjoyed it. It's not my favorite trail of the area, but a great quick hike.

Nice wide flat, packed down earth road. Very easy incline. Bikers, walkers, and dogs. Lots of little trails all over. You could create endless custom paths over here.

Eh. Nothing special. If you live around here, I guess it’s convenient?

A there and back again trail. No shade, great views, perfect for runners and mountain bikers, though the latter should look out for cracks in the road here and there.

There were some beautiful views, and I might go back on an overcast day. There's zero shade, but there are a number of trail offshoots to extend your hike if you wish. There were tons of mountain bikers, and I bet this road is great for that, as it's a mild climb, but with my dogs on foot it was a bit distracting.

More of a road than a trail when you start

Nice trail but no shade cover. I saw exactly four people. Nice views of the valley.

It was OK a little too much sun kids got tired fast because of the heat but the views were great.

Just an added note on the side trip to the Vanalden Cave. There is poison oak adjacent to the trail as you approach the cave area so keep an eye out.

Did a side trip from Mulholland to Vanalden Cave. There is an Alltrails track (Vanalden Cave Trail) going to the cave from the end of Reseda. I used that track to get an idea where the side trail intersected Mulholland. It's a short way to the cave but difficult. Grades are in the 20% range for much of it and the hiking is challenging due to significant ruts. The cave, although interesting, has lots of graffiti and broken glass. Not a side trip I'd do again, but it was interesting as a one off.

Great hiking trail for kids! The path is wide and the elevation gain is minimal. With all the rain we've had, the hills are a beautiful green. Go early enough and you can enjoy the beautiful landscape dusted with a shimmering dew. So beautiful. As others have mentioned, watch out for mountain bikers and trail runners. There are a lot. Everyone we encountered on the trails today was super friendly!

Went with 3 kids (ages 4,7,11). The 4 year old got a little tired, so she was carried for a small uphill portion. Overall, a doable hike for kids. No shade.

Just did this trail again after some rain over the weekend. This section of Mulholland stood up to the rain very well. There was one short section of standing water but there still was a dry path around the mud. As expected the panoramic views were very nice. Photos don't really do the view justice. A few batches of wildflowers. There were a lot of belly flowers (flowers you need to get down on your belly to really see). They did cover good sized areas but are so small that they just add some color to the grass.
