First half mile has lots of ups and downs. Nice views, Although you aren’t really on the ridge but rather on a trail cut into the south facing side of the hills. The only flower blooming in mid February was the California bristle brush. It was pretty hot at noon even though the temperature is only about 69°. One hiker told me he saw a coyote but I didn’t see it, just a lot of skat.

No shade. I came in early February and by 1230pm it was still nice but the sun was definitely shining. I also started from Limekiln park. It looks like if you did want to start this trail at the marker there is street parking.

I combined the Aliso Canyon trail with the Porter Ranch Ridge trail to make a loop that was about 5.5 miles. There is a short stretch of road when you do this. It was a nice route that was perfect for a walk with my hubby and dog. The canyon has nice trees and the ridge has nice city views.

Great vistas, a good leg workout with all the hills, and some nice houses to look at while hiking. It may be a bit difficult for kids and there’s not a lot of shade so make sure to bring lots of water. Early morning hikes might be the best time to attempt this due to the lack of shade. To see actual footage of the whole trail, feel free to view my video on YouTube. https://youtu.be/bZ8yicPg_Jg
