Great hike. Plenty of inclines and declines, but some are pretty steep so be careful. Also, watch where you step as I saw a lot of poop. $3 parking.

Not the best trail that I’ve hiked. It’s pretty smelly there maybe due to the water. There’s also a lot of dog poop on the trail The good thing is this trail offers versatility so you can customize your hike. Some of the inclines are pretty steep though so make sure you’re wearing trail runners or shoes with grips. Also there’s a $3 parking fee. Not too bad.

No shade, but a lot of nice hills make up for it. The climbs get your heart rate and calories burned up fast. Kids handled it well. We only did 2.45 miles, took us 1:04. Some nice views!

This is a good and challenging trail with some decent inclines....BUT it is way too crowded. Tons of people and nobody wears a mask.

Enjoyable hike with blooming cactuses. A bit crowded but we had enough space to enjoy with our dog. We also saw a big snake, stay on the trail!

I really liked this hike! It had great views and 3 steep hills that really got my HR going. I would definitely recommend. Lots of people on the weekends. You have to pay $3 for parking

Came to the park on a Saturday, 15 minutes after it opened and the parking lot was basically full. Expect a lot of loud high schoolers and music being blasted. Other than those things the trail was great and plenty of inclines.

Parking full by 7:30am and too many people. Trails in good condition, but people need to pickup after their dogs. Dog poop everywhere, really have watch where you step.

Great for outdoor exercise close to Orange / Tustin / Irvine. But quite crowded with hikers, runners, - even during the week.
