My favorite part of this trail are the horses right at the beginning of the trail. This trail is commonly used for trail riding which I would love to be doing. The trail itself is nice and lightly trafficked, but short. You don't have views over the hills but you can walk near trees. It's pretty and nice for a short, enjoyable walk.
I thought it was just nice. The markers to tell you which trail you were taking were not very clear. So for a newbie like myself I found myself guessing and hoping I was on the right trail.
I though it was a good hike for a beginner if you take the coyote trail as a challenge. Other than that it's a very easy hike.
There are so many better hikes in the Santa Clarita area. This has around 3 small loops. Only 1 has some elevation to it. There are tons of bees too. I don't recommend this trail to anybody. If you live next to it and have horses it's probably great. But I wouldn't drive more than a mile to get here. Worst open space in the SCV. Try Elsemere or Towsley Canyon nearby for a significantly better hike.
