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.
