Nice easy trail. Parking was 6$ CASH ONLY so I just found street parking and that was super convenient. Took my dog. Cool spot.

My 7 year old son and I embarked on this adventure on a whim. It was his first hike and he loved it so much, he begged me to come back sometime soon. The views were incredible, the fellow hikers were very friendly, and we were lucky enough to see a rattlesnake! That, plus being able to see our house from the top, was probably the highlight of the hike. What a wonderful experience, and we will definitely be back.

This hike was nice. Would be much nicer in the spring I'm sure. Everything was dry and dead. Lots of people even on a weekday early morning.

Weather was perfect for a hike today. Alot of wildlife to see. Trails are great, not too difficult. Good for uphill training. I would definitely come back and try different trails.

Great hike. The first 3rd is pretty much all incline and has a lot of bugs but once you get past that point it's easy. When you loop around the radio tower there's the option to take the blue dotted trail. It's steeper but can be worth it. My group chose to go the long way around and had to walk through some vegetation.

We had to end the hike a little early and didn't get to go out on the "tail" of the trail. This ended our hike at 4.2 miles, 804 ft, and took us 1.5 hrs.

Amazing trails

Great hike if you're looking for a good workout. Plenty of steep challenging hills, great views. Didn't see any wildlife which I was kind of bummed about. Make sure to take money for parking $6 and plenty of water.

Well used on the weekend but wide enough that you don't feel crowded. For free parking, find a spot on the south corner of Azusa and Colima or start at powder canyon and connect up with this trail. It's not quite as solitary as a mountain trail because the horseshoe shape trail goes around the park but it is still a great hike. Will definitely do it again.
