Nice wide fire road all the way, great wildflowers and 270 degree views of LA. No shade do bring lots of water. Good amount of flies but not a reason to avoid the hike. We’ll be doing it again!

Nice views and nice easy trail with a steady incline. The bugs are fine as long as you keep moving. the second you stop, those flies are all over you. Go early to benefit from the sun behind the hills. it gets kinda miserable after. Just a heads up - dogs are allowed to be off-leash. So if you mind or have a dog who minds, this is not the trail for you. I had a good experience and all but one dog listened and owners were responsible! Thanks for that! I went with a foster pup and didn't wanna test it.

This is a great trail to get a nearby hike workout in. However, it seems like 8/10 people on the trail don’t think it’s necessary for them to wear a mask. The majority of the trail is wide enough to avoid people, but several times I have been on the trail and encountered groups of people standing around without masks, having a chat & blocking the trail. Please if you don’t think it necessary to wear a mask, at least stay to one side of the trail and give people space to avoid you!

Beautiful views... parking lot is very small (we had to park down the road in the residential area)... tooooo many bugs just grossss!! This could be a pretty good hike as there’s plenty of trail variation and you pretty much have a 360 degree view of Los Angeles and the ocean! However, 90% of the dogs were NOT on leashes and were just running loose. I felt there were way too many people for that sort of lack of responsibility. Overall... meh.

Warm out by 8am. Lot was full by the time I got there at 6.55am but there’s a quick turnover. Don’t hike if the street parking is full though, it’ll mean the trail will be too. Please continue to wear masks, for your own health and mine. Wearing your mask around your chin does jack all. There’ll be a bunch of old men who also refuse to wear them. Dogs off leash or owners with poor leash manners may make trail running or staying in your own lane difficult but do what you can.

Hiked this back in February and it was a great trail but potentially too many bugs for me. It’s also quite crowded which I’m not a fan of although the trail is wide enough that you’re not stopping to let each other by. It is really, really pretty though and the views are definitely worth it :)

Great trail. Lots of dogs off leash so if that bothers you I wouldn’t recommend this trail.

Muy buenas vistas, bastante naturaleza. Fuimos en bicicleta y al hay bastante cuesta hacia arriba, pero enseguida te haces y la bajada es muy buena. Hay que andarse con cuidado con la gente y los perros al bajar, pero sin problema. Muy recomendable.

Rules state that dogs must be kept under immediate verbal control. This was not our experience, and in fact every dog we encountered rushed up to us and our dog as if entitled to greet everyone they passed. Despite our pulling off to the side to allow a safe, responsible passing with these dogs, their owners did not even attempt to keep their dogs in check. Turned back to call it a bust only to be faced with more dogs in the parking area off leash and not under any semblance of control. Might be a decent trail, but thanks to irresponsible and entitled owners with out of control dogs, we won't be going back.

A lot of the map stays on the fire road but there’s a pedestrian/biking trail just next to it with more elevation. Much better than walking the fire road. I ran into a very nice older couple at the turnaround. Talked about their adventures through the California mountains over the years.

Decent trail with a cool view at the end. You can see all of LA. The entire thing is a service road so it is easy to navigate. Easy-moderate hike.
