Moderate difficulty trail on hard gravel & dirt with nice views of hills and canyons and some city views. Very little trees and birds mostly chaparral bushes.

a challenging climb but well rewarding on The Descent. Deluge is truly a unique non Park natural opportunity

This was a nice long hike. We started early to beat the heat but by noon it was hot! Through out the hike we were dodging the speeding bikes going by and nearly got run over a few times. The trail also has you walk along Santiago Canyon rode as well as Trabuco road (at the end) which was very dangerous. I don’t recommend this one.

All uphill to start with no shade. On a hot day it’s a tough hike.

First to Review

Wildlife Sanctuary at the trailhead with educational birding plaques. Steep moderate hike up a dirt path for serene views of canyons. Family friendly. Great for mountain biking, hiking, & birding.
