This was a great trail! There is enough periodic shade to stay cool even on a hot day. Definitely go the direction around the loop specified in the map since the final downhill is very exposed and would be tough if it were an uphill. A bit overgrown in one of the sections but certainly passable.

Trail was beautiful and so is today. Are there in fact my asthma and face coverings made me run out of air halfway up the big incline it was a wonderful hike

It was good, instead of going straight into the canyon, if you are looking for a challenge make the first right after you go in and go the opposite way for a significant difference in elevation climbed.

One of my favorites! A great mixture of hills and inclines, as well as some nice shade. You can see the ocean on a clear day. Plus everyone is always smiling on this trail.

Beautiful hike that takes you through canyons and hills through Puente Hills, sometimes feels like you're in the middle of a forest and other times feels like you're walking through plains. Kinda scary knowing there's mountain lines and snakes about but didn't see any.

Always a good trail. Was muddy due to the rain, which was to be expected. However, there was an absurd amount of dog poo this time, and coupled with the mud, made for some hazardous terrain.

Being Veterans Day and off work, I took advantage of the Holiday by going out for this quick hike. This hike is set in an open space with minimal shade so a wide brim hat, hiker pole, and adequate hydration are essential.Also there are multiple trail intersections along the intended hiking path so doing the hike with a good map, GPS in phone and I was good to go. I parked my car along the street by trail-head along Fullerton Road, then started at trailhead and hiked on a fire road heading up hill and at North-East portion of the park until I got to Schabarum Trail extension at the East side edge of the park. I can see houses with well manicured lawns below the park and stayed along Schabarum Trail for 1.6 miles. Trail has a steep switchback which climbs to about 722 feet so that's a good cardio workout if you're in it for the exercise. You'll be rewarded with majestic views of the San Gabriel mountains to the East before trail takes you down to the canyon floor into Powder Canyon trail then a hike all the way to Fullerton Road and back to the trail-head. Because of the marvelous view of the San Gabriel mountains, I give this hike 5 stars.

Just finished this Halloween hike. I trail ran 1/2 of it and hiked the other 1/2. Morning was a great time to do it. It was well maintained and only slightly overgrown with last season's weeds encroaching onto the trail in some areas. I actually prefer that though because it makes the trail feel more like a single track. Lots of the hike was on fire road paths, which is partially why I gave it only 3 stars. That, combined with it having minimal shade cover and relatively underwhelming views. The trail could have been marked a little better as well. If I didn't have my phone's GPS on, I would have had no idea which trail to take on multiple intersections. Overall it was a pretty good little hike though. Do it fast and keep the breaks short (or none) and you'll get a good workout in. Have your phone on you so you stay on the intended trails. If you're in good shape and you hydrate well before, you shouldn't have any need to carry any water on this one. P.S. The real trails are north of this hike (Angeles National Forest)!
