Good trail for training but the trail as marked doesn't end at the las lladas trailhead. We hiked up from Rocky peak and then down las lladas but the end of the hike was at least 2 miles short of the trailhead. We kept going and it was a 16 Mike hike overall.

This is an important connector of a series of trails that wind through this Santa Susana Mountains. That said, the trail as described isn't a trail I would recommend. I would recommend this hike to the top of the Rocky Peak ridge and turning North on a side trail to the top of Rocky Peak. Some of the trails it connects are Devils Canyon, Las Llajas Cyn, Chumash Trail, Grunge Trail, Hummingbird Trail and Corriganville Trail network. All these trails can be connected for quiet point to point hikes if you bring two cars. They are all hot and exposed in the summer so should be started at dawn and lots of water should be carried. The other 3 seasons of the year they can be done anytime. There are outstanding views of the San Fernando Valley as well as Simi Valley along this trail.

Because of this hike, I invented the word "brutalful" amazing views, beautiful rock formations, saw maybe 8 people in the total 14.23 miles hiked. Very little shade, make sure to go on a cool day, early, or be prepared to trek with a lot of water, sunscreen, hats/long sleeves etc. Wear good shoes on this trail, the first few miles from the entrance are fairly rocky. The ground changes the further you go into the trail making it a little more stable. The inclines are no joke with this one. Coming back up from Las Llajas canyon was a bit brutal, but overall the experience was great.

I would say this hike is one that is easy to stay on trail. the very big draw back is I would say I only found 3 or 4 shady spots on the 4 miles each way. i would highly recommend hat and sun screen for this hike, and a lot of water.

Hiked the trail from the start of Rocky Peak (off Rocky Peak rd ) to the end of Las Llajas ( off Evening Sky Dr ) my fitbit showed about 11 miles. It was a great workout and some awesome views. But heads up not a lot of shade.
