extremely hard for fifteen minutes uphill, then a spectacular 360 degree view of Orange County....

Not a particularly long hike but there was great variety in the trails and the views couldn't be better! On a clear day you can see both Catalina Island and the skyscrapers of L.A! 10/10 would definitely hike again.

Cute little spot for a hike but the trail is unmarked with lots of different paths that can get confusing. It is rocky with inclines that can be difficult for dogs but doable. This hike does offer great views.

Great views at sunset. Disneyland fireworks can be seen at 9:30pm. Often very green in the springtime after rain. Trail is usually pretty clean and litter-free as well.

Ok so it's my fault for going too late but basically this trail has so many unmarked paths and no signs anywhere and the sun went down as I was making my way up so long story short it took a while to get out but I really did enjoy this hike. It just really needs signs so you don't get lost.

Love this trail. It's great for a good sunset hike when I don't have time to get out of the neighborhood and still want a low traffic trail. The views are excellent and on a clear day you can see to Catalina.

Always a fun little hike. Great views of Orange County. Especially beautiful and so green during the spring. Also cool to night hike here and watch the Disneyland/Angels stadium fireworks during the summer.

I have lived below this trail for years and never hiked it! Really enjoyed it and love the fact that I can walk here from my house.

Who knew this trail was hidden with the city all around it. Great view of Orange at the top and on a clear day you can see John Wayne Airport, Catalina, and the ocean.

Nice hidden gem. Make sure not to take the west downward descent on the northern end of this trail. It dead ends on a private driveway that is blocked off.

This is a really nice easy trail. You can take a slow pace and there is a decent view at the top.
