Amazing wildlife! This particular loop is one of the more strenuous hikes at Rancho San Antonio, but it’s well worth the effort. Some of the trail sections are steep, but at no point is scrambling necessary. Pack lots of water and plan for between 6-7 hours to finish the trail if you aren’t a crazy speed-hiker. There is a nice bench at the top of the trail where you can enjoy views and a lunch.

Sweet trail. You should go counterclockwise and definitely don’t skip going to the top of black mountain.

This was a great hike! Not too strenuous until going up quarry trail. Felt a little afraid since we didn't run into anyone but the view is beautiful!
