Went on hike on Sunday April 29 a group of 10 around noon. There were plenty of parking spots. Park rangers were there to provide information of trails. Considering weekend, not many people were on the trails. All hikers we met along the way were very friendly. We’ll definitely go back.

Nice meadows. Did this loop in about an hour and 15. My fitbit calculated 3 miles even.

Did a short hike after being restricted by a cold for a couple weeks. Everything is green. Great time to get out and enjoy the Las Virgenes Highlands and Palo Comado areas.

Great trail, the hills were a grind on my bike but rewarding view. Not 9 miles though. More like 1-2 miles tops. But connects to other trails.

Modelo has some great views. A total cardio grind going up those hills. Coming down wasn't as fun as it should have been because I was blocked by horse riders and some sharp turns. I'll give it another go, though, some time soon. Also, not sure why it says 9 miles. maybe I missed something but it seems like after a couple of hills it connects you to pallomado, and from there you can either go to China Flats or Sheep Corral.

I loved this hike...We went with my boyfriend and son and his girlfriend and it was lovely on an 85 degree afternoon. The breeze is gorgeous and the views and rolling hills are fantastic. I added plenty of photos for you all to enjoy. It is a nice family hike. Keep in mind the first 1/2 mile is uphill the last 1/2 mile is downhill. There are a lot of horses on this trail which actually add to it in a pleasant way. There is also a Park Ranger booth at the base of the hike to answer any questions and give you a map as there is more than one trail. Enjoy!
