Lots of fun. I'll do it again. Easy, smooth gravel road with wonderful vistas. Great picnic spots.

Beautiful view and half the trail was nicely shaded. Eagle Rock was very impressive.

I really enjoyed this hike. Great views and beautiful wild flowers. I recommend taking the fire road up and the Musch trail down to get the best views.

It's a good trail to get exposed to Santa Monica mountains. Catch the updraft, see the valley, Santa Monica, Catalina. Nice time.

We came in to this hike via Santa Ynez trailhead (Palisades via Vereda de la Montura), not Musch Trail. It was nice! Lots of streams to cross. Beautiful views. Steady incline. Eagle Rock was wonderful. Really enjoyed this hike.

Great hike with gorgeous views of the city from atop Eagle Rock. Nice, open areas, meadows, clean, plenty of free parking. Watch for bicyclists on the trail as sometimes, they zoom by pretty fast. Also watch for snakes and mountain lions - we've seen both. Our hike was almost 9 miles R/T but you can keep on going and going.

Great views from the top of Eagle Rock, though it's a bummer that people have defaced parts of it with graffiti. Not too strenuous.
