I went clockwise and it was a long easy uphill and quite a scramble downhill. Not a lot of shade and some bugs.

Amazing view. The loop is a bit rough on the East side and washed out. Not many trail markers so it’s easy to get lost.

If you start counterclockwise, the climb is steep, but you’ll get an easier descent. If you go the opposite direction, you’ll get a longer slow climb with a steep slippery descent. We did it counterclockwise and we enjoyed the challenge. Don’t follow the exact trail shown on the app, where it appears to loop back on itself; it’s a dead end. Enjoy the hike and the views! You can see downtown LA on a clear day!

Going clockwise, the first half of this loop I would rate as 'Easy' being that it is nearly all on a fire access road. The return leg of the loop is an often very steep descent on unmaintained ridgeline covered with golf-ball sized rocks. More than once I had to stop and determine the best route down a steep mountainside - it wasn't obvious. An easy hike and a good workout would be to do the first half of the clockwise loop as an in-and-out. Doing the full loop clockwise with gravity assisting the return descent would be "Moderate" in my estimation. Doing the climb of taking this loop counter-clockwise I think would be borderline 'Hard'.

Make sure to bring water, because lack of rain has made the trail a dusty hike, but has some great views of the valley.
