Love this hike. It’s always best to go early so the sun doesn’t beat down on you. Parking is $6 to enter the park.

Very scenic and connects to a lot of other trails in the area. This is a good hike with a few inclines! Shade is limited and it’s crowded.

Great trail! Almost 7 miles. Shaded when you need it. If it had a place to swim, it would be perfect.

Really enjoy this hike. Not too hard, but with a few inclines to bring up intensity and make it a good workout. Never crowded and nice views.

Great trail for a morning hike or jog. Clear path throughout, mostly at least 5-10 feet wide with a few narrower sections. Lots of native plants and sage scrub to look at, plus views of local area. Some trailside areas are a bit overgrown, and trail is at times steeper and without shade, so bring plenty of water/hat if going midday. Parking is available in the lot or just on the street - park closer to the main street (before you hit the La Habra Heights sign) for easy and free parking/egress.

We missed the loop turn and went straight on the Powder Canyon. It was out and back 4miles from the parking lots. Mountains and trees deeper in the hike were beautiful! Fairly easy, a few steep parts that def will get you winded!

Be prepared for uphill strolls. Overall the trail is clean and not packed. It gets quiet in some parts, make sure to be aware of your surroundings.

A good hiking trail for beginners. There’s a path that’s slightly overgrown about halfway down the trail but it’s not to the point where the path is completely non-visible so it shouldn’t be a problem. To avoid groups of people go early in the morning around 7-11 AM on weekdays or when it’s cloudy. Make sure to bring plenty of water too and if you find yourself out of breath take a few seconds to relax and enjoy the scenery. Overall taking this trail is a good quick work out for runners, hiking enthusiasts, or bike riders.

Loved this trail. We walked slowly and took several mini breaks along the uphill part (novice hikers.) the scenery is lovely. Apart from The views, we did see several snakes and other wildlife. No climbing required. We packed a picnic and enjoyed that on the grass once we finished the loop. Lovely way to spend a few hours.

I would not recommend this for beginners especially if you're gonna mountain bike maybe a good walk or hike to check it out another hills up-and-down Some serious downhill shredding Awesome views well worth the up hill are definitely worth the view

Didn’t complete. Went from the temple around Schabarum Park and back. Many parts of the trail have closed signs and caution tape but people are out and about and it’s easy to navigate.

Wildcat Loop is open and we took the switch backs through Powder Canyon (which was unbeknownst to me. Plenty of wildflowers, butterflies, rabbits and squirrels to see! Plenty of options to make your hike longer or intensify with uphill challenges! I took an extra hill to come down the switchbacks and regret nothing!

This was my third choice for a hike today. The first two trails were closed. This hike definitely exceeded my expectations. Now is the time do to this hike because the wildflowers are out in full bloom & the weather is not hot. As others have said, you can lengthen or shorten your hike from numerous side/connector routes. The inclines were more steady than steep (clockwise). I chose to lengthen my trip and added another two miles around and back to the entrance of the park off of Colima Road. Currently, there are several cherry trees blossoming along the trail paralleling the interior park road so no need to go to Washington DC or Japan to see them. Enjoy!

I really enjoyed this trail. As a newbie to hiking there were a few up hill areas that got my heart up however overall it was a fairly easy trail and had great scenery and views.
