Awesome. Go up the big dirt path. Stay right. After about a mile.and a half theres a side.trail on the right up to the radio towers. That trail is steep going up and steeper going down. Awesome views. Fitness is a prerequisite.

Very Quiet, uphill but not too strenuous, with amazing views of the LA basin. I would definitely recommend it.
Plus, I found an incredibly creepy message in a bottle under the solitary tree at the top of the mountain. It's still there if you want to go find it for yourself.

Maps are confusing... Just stay to the right a lot! You can go on and on and on. We did 9 miles.

Started at the Nature Center trail head and went up the 2nd fork to the left and up to "The View" which is a great rest area. There is another tiny trail that will take you to the view (the first left with a big water tank) but it's very small and for experienced people. From there I went up the smaller trail to the old Boy Scout Camp. There are shortcuts on this trail which take you steeply over a ridge and steeply down to meet the Stough Canyon fire road. I used he steep down, but it's not advised unless you are experienced. From there I casually walked down the fire road to the Nature Center.

Overall it was a nice loop with some interesting urban exploring and beautiful views on a good day. There's barely any shade though, so not for the hottest of days.

My favorite. So many different ways to go and explore. Great uphill hike up to an amazing 360• view with a bench to relax in on top.
