There are many trails to choose from. Going into the trail its down hill but coming back is all up hill. There is little shade but the views are amazing. I was confused which trail to take my first try. I am definitely going back.

Interesting reverse hike: downhill first then uphill at the end. Good workout!

Awesome trail. Feels like you're a world away from LA. The hike up the canyon at the end is a real ass kicker. This isn't an intuitive hike, there are dozens of little trails and offshoots that can disorient you, and the trail markers aren't super clear. Would recommend following the map provided by the app. I would have gotten lost many times without it. Parking seems like it's really restrictive around the area, ie you have to have resident permit to park in the lot by trailhead. And there is limited spots on the street. I went midday on a Monday so I was able to park fairly easily but I'm sure on a weekend it would have been a nightmare to find a spot.

Since I’m brand new to hiking, I did this trail to see where I was fitness wise. When I was on the main Burma trail road there were several people but when I took the smaller trails provided by this route I was all alone (except for the bunnies and the occasional biker). I really enjoyed this trail because it incorporated lots of other trails in the area. Since I am not experienced in following trails and maps I decided to just stick to this exact route. Now that I had that experience I feel like next time I come I can explore a little more. I used running shoes since I don’t have hiking boots. They worked fine for the most part. Only a couple times did I see how more sturdier shoes would come in handy. I started my hike a round 7:30, if I had started an hour earlier it would have been even nicer temp wise. All in all I enjoyed it and was glad I did it.
