Mostly a fire road that eventually leads to singletrack. Highlight was seeing a mountain lion track on the trails.

Great flat hike. You have to tune out the traffic noise from nearby Lindero Canyon. Saw three groups of mule deer.

Really good hike in Liberty Canyon. The trail through the canyon is very tranquil and the hills are nice and green. There is a small burn area near the beginning of the hike that could result in a nice patch of wildflowers this spring. My friend spotted a set of tracks that could be mountain lion. They were the right size, the pad had the right shape, and there were no claw marks. There are photos included in the photo section. Lots of deer prints, and deer are a major food source. Finally on the way out about 100 yards from the pavement was a tree full of parrots. Wouldn't have noticed them if they hadn't been making such a ruckus.

Super easy hike very nice for biking if you are into that. even some shade spots to take breaks if you are a beginner. wide trail as well so no need to worry about snakes during the hot months.

Still some green in the valleys on this trail. It's pretty much disappeared from the Las Virgenes Highlands and surrounding canyons on the north side of the 101. The green isn't going to last long so hike this trail sooner than later.

I just did the Liberty Canyon Trail hike. I might be a bit generous with a 5 star rating but I'm in a generous mood because the whole of southern California is now so green. There's nothing spectacular about this trail as compared to similar trails in the surrounding area. They all have similar views and they're also very green. This one doesn't seem to get the use that others do so it may be a more tranquil experience. It;s a very easy trail although there isn't much shade. I'd avoid it in the summer months on days when the sun is oppressive.
