I can't really rate it, since it's closed due to the fires.

Been using this trail for conditioning. The earlier you arrive the better. Humidity and heat is rough. 2 shelters to escape from heat on Oaks trail. No shade on trails.

Brought my dog, it's was great for her.
The trial is a little confusing at the far back of the loop - you end up following an access road toward and then around the large electric tower. Overall really great views and nice uphold if you take the Mt. Goat trail.

This is a really great Trail. Mountain Goat Trail is a steep switch back so just take it slow and sure footed. There were quiet a few mountain bikers and horses on trail this time out and we saw a snake on trail. Just be mindful & keep an eye out. This is a great trail, and I'll be returning to complete the loop.

The trails around these hills/mountains are endless. So many different intersecting trails to choose from. They all seem to meet up at some point. I like to do the short loop on the windes nature trail and then cross the creek for the others. Today I did sage trail all the way up to robbers roost (peak), then I came down peralta. These trails were challenging and all had great views from various perspectives. From the OC basin out to Angel stadium and beyond that the ocean, to snow capped mountains on the other side, to Santiago peak in another direction. Robbers roost (peak) has fantastic views. The constant uphill and downhill to get there and back was a great workout. I'll def be back!

This place isn't marked on the Santiago Oaks Regional Park, but you can get there through the trails there. It's a nice little peak, but nothing too amazing. I guess the appeal was having a story to go along with this peak.

Anyways, there's several trails to get up there, from the parking lot a nice loop is Santiago Creek Trail, to Mountain Goat Trail to Barham Ridge Trail, keep going up, past the utility lines. You'll have to exit the park, but a short ways to the peak. You can then continue west, go down, and re-enter the park. Take the Oaks trail and take the Santiago Creek Trail back to the parking lot. Trails are pretty well marked. Just be careful of bikers, they come speeding down those trails pretty fast.

Was pretty shot down when I first got there. No singletrack whatsoever. I kept pedaling down the Santiago creek trail and found "hawk" and "bumblebee". Singletrack and double track, both very fun downhill trails. Brought my downhill bike which was a pig to climb with, but I still had a blast. Definitely something for everyone out here.

Oi. Don't bother. It's more for horses than for hiking. Parking is $5-$7

Didnt see any maps at trailhead. Thought area was confusing for a first timer and required multiple trips to figure out the area. See review for Weir Canyon Wilderness Park.

Nice easy trail. Get a map at the entrance. There are many trails here, and they are well marked. It's in a regional park, almost secluded from major streets so it was kind of nice. Nice views of Santa Monica mountains and San Gabriel mountains. Good trails for bikers as well

I hiked this trail a few days ago. The trail was pretty well maintained and had a lot of signs to help you figure out where you were going. It is primarily a biking area so be careful of bikers going down the hills. It has a couple really great resting areas along the top of it to stop and take a breather or some pictures. There are some pretty views from the top at sunset but it's not necessarily somewhere I would recommend for those that are looking for great scenery during a hike.
