Short and steep. Great cardio whether hiking or running. It is a great way to get some peace above the city stress and enjoy a nice view. I absolutely love this trail which can also be used to link with the Claremont loop.

One of my favorite local hikes. Great for a little cardio workout. Awesome view of DTLA up top.

Love this trail! But this weekend was a bit scary as we were walking back down to our car a group of people were walking up a little fast because there was a bear on the trail Following them, so we all went back up and waited for the bear to pass he probably eventually went down to the water and we were able to go down but just be cautious.

I love trail. It's completely uphill from the start. It has a beautiful view once you get to the top. I would also like to mentioned that there is shade from the beginning up to halfway of the hike. once you get to the halfway way point there isn't much shade. It's a moderate workout for an average hiker.

great hike that tests your endurance during the last mile to the top. Great view at the top, but not enough potatoes! Free parking too!
