No shade. Starting counterclockwise a nice trail thru canyon then fireroad to top. This app routed me thru residential landscape area near the end.

This trail is just all dry brush with no nice view or payoff. The elevation kicks in about a mile into the hike all at once so be prepared to go uphill around the halfway point.

Tons of dry brush and prickles ankle level so wear pants if you don't want your socks to be full of thorns.

A good hike with views of suburban neighborhoods and side mountain views, there's a slow elevation path up to give a good workout

Very easy trail. You can see a good view of Santa Clarita "Saugus" area. When you are between the canyons it is dead silent. Not too crowded at all.

Trail has nice views. We went after some heavy rains, but the mud was not too bad at the time. There was a lot of wind, as well.

I can imagine during the warmer months that this tail is occupied with many dirt bikers, as there are a great collection of jumps for them. It would be fun to come and see them perform.

Nice easy short hike although depending were you start from the first 1/2 mile up starting from the north east trailhead are steep 400 something gain. My favorite short hike close to were I live when I don't have time for a longer hike.

Decent little trail in Santa Clarita. Seems to offer more to dirt bikers than anything. Nice view at top. Short easy loop, nothing too exciting. Worth it if you live nearby but I wouldn't travel far for this one.
