Short (an experienced hiker could probably bang it out in 45 minutes) but challenging hike. The first half of the loop is almost all uphill-my calves were burning by minute 15. The downhill is steep and offers great views of the San Fernando Valley/ Encino Reservoir. I began my hike at 8 a.m. on a Monday and encountered maybe 10 people on the trail. Probably too steep for a small dog. Good for a workout-not really a “nature hike”.
