It was a great hike. Highly recommend going in the morning - not much shade on the trail. Be sure to stop at the benches, near the mid point of the trail, to enjoy the view.

90 degrees by 8am made the hike extremely strenuous. I’d avoid this hike in extreme heat. Otherwise the loop would be pleasant on a cool day

Ok hike along a fire road with nice views of the Ojai Valley. Pretty easy - saw several young kids and dogs. There was a 5 gallon jug of water and a bowl at the end of the trail. This hike is a little too close to civilization for my liking. one side of the trail is fenced off backing up to orchards and people's back yards, the other side is mostly open space wilderness with some side trails leading up to small peaks. not much shade except last 1/4 mile is shaded by overgrown avocado trees. If going in summer, best to start early and bring water.

easy trail with nice views. parking limited at trailhead. Be careful if you go to the other end of the trail looking for parking, we saw two cars with tickets despite looking like they were parking legally.

Good trail. Easy access. Pretty straightforward and not hard to get lost or anything like that. Was a little underwhelmed with the scenery. Kind of bland. But the views of Ojai were breathtaking.
