This is one of the most beautiful hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains. Highlights include the spectacular Echo Cliffs where rock climbers ascend shear cliffs, a house sized boulder delicately balanced on a small rock beneath, a giant split rock where kids can dash between the sheer walls, stunning giant sandstone formations, and breathtaking views from the top of Sandstone Peak and Inspiration point. Highly recommended.

We loved it. It takes about 3-3.5 hrs to complete the loop. Beautiful scenery and views. it does get a bit confusing at parts with multiple trails converging and if there are signs they sometimes don't have arrows.

A trail that shows off some incredible vistas. Hiked this last weekend and watched amazing sunsets from multiple lookouts. Well worth the effort. It’s a good workout.

The scenery is absolutely beautiful! A little steep and rocky along the way but definitely doable! Btw, don't forget to sign the notebook once you reach the top!

We made it with our 15 month son in a backpack carrier. The trail is amazing, with scenic views. Our best trail in Santa Monica Mountains so far!
