I usually take my son in a stroller when I go hiking so this trail was ideal because it’s mostly paved. There are nice views but it’s not the most gorgeous walk I’ve ever been on. I enjoyed it for what it was but I much rather go down Sunset a bit and hike at Will Rogers State Park.

This is a nice trail, parts of which are paved, with some impressive views and many wildflowers.
Keep your eyes out for rattlesnakes.
Watch out for dog poop, discarded bags of dog poop, and packs of dogs being walked. I encountered several large groups of dogs during my 2-hour walk. Most of them were friendly, but I could barely get through one group as I tried exiting the park onto Kenter; the person "walking" them was clearly not acting as a pack leader. A friend who was biking said that groups of dogs overran even the whoops and jumps...and sometimes from the opposite trail direction from how people were riding bikes, so that he encountered dogs approaching him head-on. This could be dangerous for both the bikers and the dogs. Ignoring all of that, it's a very pleasant hike/walk and/or bike ride.

Nice hike. The gravel was amazing to walk on even up the steep hills

I loved hiking here in the summer when I could start at 6am ... I hate it now.

If you go at 8am or later you will run into commercial dog walkers ... one group after another with up to 8 dogs per person all off leash. The dogs take up the entire trail, the walkers cannot control them and they don't seem to care. I have had dogs chase me as I ran the trail.

I wish park rangers would police this trail and hand out hefty fines for those individuals who blatantly break the dog rule that is posted at the gate (on leash and two dogs max per person).

If you bike, beware ... the dog walkers love to take their dogs on the side trails ... not only would it be annoying, but dangerous.

I like this trail! Easy to find parking, quiet, and you can go and turn around whenever you'd like. Plus, it's close to UCLA so I can go without having to drive super far!

Beautiful views. Mostly uphill. Left trail has been turned into a bike trail with jumps and landscaping. Be cautious as a hiker. Lots of air traffic (airplanes, helicopters) flying up and down the canyon all day. Power lines overhead. Not crowded. Good for off leash dogs.
