Magnolia Trail is located on the Covina-Walnut border. Most of the year it usually features scrubby landscape consistent with the San Gabriel Valley area, but after consistent rain will observe a bloom a lot of flowers and lush greenery. The trail also features a grove of rare California black walnut trees on its western side near Grand Avenue.

Wear shoes with traction. There is a lot of dirt in a few parts where your whole foot can be swallowed by dirt. Nevertheless, awesome views and trail! Will be back with friends!

I hiked this a couple times last fall. The initial hike to the top of the hill on Grand is tiring but quick, but the rest of the Magnolia Trail portion is pretty easy. When the trail enters Buzzard Peak Road it becomes a bit harder as it's a steady incline until you're carving the side of Buzzard Peak, but then a pretty smooth hike as you ride on top of the San Jose Hills. Also the views are amazing at this part.
