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.

Hiked this 6 mile loop last Saturday and have to say "it kicked my butt ". the trail was marked very clearly which was a great help for first timers on this trail. completed the 6 mile loop in 2hours and 49 mins. Will be back again.

I've done this trail before, but always find it a bit harder than the "moderate" rating it gets, especially if you head off the main trail to Tri Peaks. I've done Mt. Wilson and Mt. Baldy summits and find this little 6 mile loop, just as hard, but much more spetacular...love it !

Loved this trail. The only reason I give it 4 rather than 5 stars is that the difficulty level was higher than expected if you're used to other moderate trails from this app. This got pretty tough in parts with lots of steep uphill, unstable rocky climbs (at the top), and some sketchy descents with steep rocky gravel. If you're up for a high end of moderate challenge, this is a great trail.

after the recent rain the area is lush with green and flowers. such a wonderful change in scenery from the hustle and bustle of LA. the hike was strenuous in some parts and rocky so bring good shoes with grip and better yet with ankle support.

Nice trail, well blazed. Not too strenuous, a little bit of scrambling near the peak, but nothing too rough. Awesome views of the Pacific and Valley at summit. Real nice afternoon hike.
