Amazing hike! The car wreck was very cool to see! It gets warm...go early! There is not much shade. It's $3 to park in the lot, but there is some street parking nearby. Definitely will do this hike again!

This is a fun hike. The hill back up kicks your butt and the directions are a little difficult at first, but over all it is a really great hike... and supposedly it haunted?.. if you're into that stuff.

This is an incredible beautiful hike, it is decently challenging.

It's a bit confusing at first because you have to cross from the Aliso creek trail. If you don't cross then you end up going all the way up the Aliso creek trail and there is nothing to see at the end. the Mathis canyon however was great, it's definitely not for beginners as it's all steep up hill, there is only one car wreck to see. I recommend it as it's a great trail for people who are looking for wildlife and bit of strength building for your legs

Very challenging for a beginner. Do this after you're in decent shape and have hiked for some time with brutal inclines.
