This was a pretty enjoyable hike with a beautiful view at the end. The path is very wide and well maintained. I would say it’s somewhere on the upper end of “easy”/low end of “moderate” as far as difficulty goes. It’s a gradual incline most of the way to the overlook. Bring lots of water and sunscreen because there is very little shade and it can get hot. Parking in the neighborhood is limited, so if it’s a busy day it might be hard to find a spot near the trail head.

Beautiful, relatively chill trail for an afternoon walk! It was completely foggy so the views weren’t as expansive as we hoped, but being up in the clouds was a magical experience in its own right. Completed in about 2.5 hours with some time spent up top.

This was a pretty straightforward trail that was a steady 2.5 mile incline until the very top. I’d definitely consider it moderate. Would be a great trail for running as well. The top is a great view of the city and ocean with a couple benches to enjoy the lookout. There’s also a legit porta-potty as well up top. Still, this germaphobe wouldn’t use it. Parking was tough along the residential area. Very little shade if it’s sunny. Trail is shared with mountain bikers. I did notice that fellow hikers were not as friendly as I’ve experienced on other trails.

What a view

4 months ago

Amazing views the entire trail, final outlook was beautiful. I was able to park on the street adjacent to the trailhead. Got there at 7am on a Wednesday and there were already a few cars. Not a ton of street parking available so you can consider the Los Liones parking area and then hiking up if later in the day. There is no lot here. Saw about a dozen people on trail, more later in the day. Took me a little longer than 2 hours round trip with some time spent at the top. The entire approach is a steady incline uphill. Not much shade if sunny, bring sunscreen and water! I saw some neat wildlife on the trail, birds rabbits and a small snake.

This isn't really a hiking trail. With the exception of the final 1/8th mile, you could probably drive a Civic up to the top because the trail is so wide and the incline is pretty constant and gradual.

It was crowded, even on a Thursday evening. I passed about 30 people in two hours. There are sidewalks in LA with less foot traffic. The crowd and the road-like conditions made the climb feel very un-hike-ish. The views were great though.

Best done on a clear day when the views are truly to die for. Beware the lack of shade on a warm day. And the street parking can be trying on a crowded day. Otherwise, one of my fave coastal trails.

Great exercise. No shade. Nice breeze most times. Bathroom on top. Fantastic views.

Great views on this hike from beginning to end and very easy to follow trail. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because it's too busy, so go early. Park on the street and enter beside the White House at the dead end.

I've done this a few times and it's a great workout. Steady incline for the first 2 miles with not much shade. Views at the top and going back down are stunning. Also, they were installing a restroom at the top.

This is on the more challenging end of moderate! There are pretty consistent up and down both out and back. So I would recommend this for someone with a few hikes under their belt or that is relatively activ. Unbeatable views are a good pay off for the hard work. Nice clean trail, beware parking is limited.

Pretty solid incline for the first 2miles; would consider it on the harder side of "moderate". Views on the downhill trek are fantastic!

Trail was great: pretty well maintained, easy to follow. The first half is a steady incline so get ready to sweat. The view is worth it! Parking is tricky; it's only street parking and it is limited. I would recommend getting dropped off or going early.

great morning hike with beautiful views of LA and the ocean! Gradual uphill the majority of the way in is a good work out. Recommend doing the hike early to avoid the heat.

So intense! if you're looking for a relentless incline hike with gorgeous panoramic views, this is it. Prepare to work up a major sweat!

Loved this trail! It was terrible going up but once you saw that view, all your work leading up to the top was all worth it!!

Great glute workout. If you don't have the time to do the full Los Liones trail, this is a great alternative.

beautiful view. not too strenuous for me but very pleasant and my beginner parents did it in 3 hours total! good times

Pretty tough at the beginning - straight up for about a mile or more. Missed the best views today though due to fog. Good workout though!

Awesome view at the end. Worth it.
