I really enjoyed this hike with my wife. There is tree coverage in certain parts of the trail as well. We started the hike past the golf course where there is a dirt parking lot at the end of the road. It's an easy hike.

Nice easy trail. Arrive early to beat the crowds. We started at about 7:30 & had the trail to ourselves but by the time we finished there were lots of people & we were being constantly buzzed by mountain bikes (even though there last fews miles they're supposed to go 3mph…)

Still confused about how to get to the lower trailhead for the Marshal Canyon trail. The green dot on the map begins at a park off Wheeler and the trailhead from there was too difficult to find and seems to go through a suburb. Finally ended up at the mid section off of Stephen Ranch Road. This trail head is not the Marshal Canyon trailhead, but the Spur Trail which ultimately connects to part of the Marshal Canyon Trail. Looking forward to hiking this trail, but honestly, even the trail map could do better at clarifying where all of the trailheads can be accessed.

Great level of challenge. Not necessarily easy—more like moderate. The best part is the feeling of accomplishment. You’ll like it. If you want a shorter hike, park at the Regional Park. That should be a bit under 5 miles or so. If you want about 8 mile challenge park by Lowell Brandt Park. Have fun!!!

Nice hike.. there were a few killer hills. Beware there’s lots of cross country teams training & mountain bikes but everyone was respectful of each other. There was a lot of shade so it’s not too hot. Didn’t finish the whole hike because one of the members of our group knee gave out.

I did a 5 1/2 mile version of this trail, as featured in John W. Robinson's famous book, "Trails of the Angeles." Avoid it on hot and sunny days, as there are many exposed sections.

One of my favorite trails. Not easy though and if you are hiking gotta watch out for bikers, they speed down the trail. ⛰

Nothing to crazy. This is the trail that sparked my hiking hobby. Good beginner trail. Tons of wildlife and rattlesnakes. ALOT I mean ALOT of horse poop on the trail watch your step. No crazy views but it is very scenic near the stream. I usually park on Stephens ranch rd , after the golfcourse in this dirt parking lot and start my trek down.

We love this trail! plenty of shade, challenging enough for a good cardio workout. We took our shihtzu and he loved it, especially the spot where the stream crosses the path. we'll be back! 10.9.17
