Great trail but hot and exposed. Bring sunscreen and coverage for arms and legs especially if you go late in the AM. We try to leave the trailhead by 5 am, which seems to keep the heat at bay.

Easily an 11 mile hike! It's a great hike! It was overcast and misty which made it perfect weather wise! The fog was too thick to enjoy the view, but loved it!!

5/26/17: My phone put this at around 10 miles. Great hike. It got misty as I went up so could not see much from the top but the sense of accomplishment was nice! I would call this a lightly trafficked trail as I only encountered 3 people total on the actual trail (first and last hour). My dog had a blast.

This loop is not 8.7 miles. It's more like 11 miles. I've done it at least 6 times. And whatever device I've used has it at over 11 miles.

Best hike for difficulty and workout near LA. I come from Utah so I have to admit that it isn't nearly as intense as most hikes in the Wasatch, but it's the best it gets around here!
