It’s a beautiful hike in Calabasas with a great workout. It’s an initial descent but then you have some uphill scrambles. Would have enjoyed it so much more if there weren’t a CLOUD OF BUGS throughout the trail. I only made it a third of the way through as my friend and I were getting totally miserable swatting insects away. Also, watch out for poison oak. So much poison oak and the path is overgrown in many areas. Definitely cover your arms and legs.

Very mellow, definitely shade for half of it. With all the rain recently the trail itself was a trickling creak so it was muddy. Very quiet and the dog loved it. Saw maybe 2 people midday on a Saturday

Good for baby’s first hike. Shady enough.

Awesome trail. Shady most of the way up, dense forest/shrubs, well-maintained trail, few people, great views on the way up. Only downside is that it ends at a road as opposed to a peak. Correction- You can connect to the Backbone Trail by turning right on the road at the end of the trail, then turning left. This leads up past some sandstone outcrops, then views of the ocean and LA.

My go-to trail if I only have a couple of hours to do ~5 plus miles. Gradual incline. I usually start at the 2nd tier off of UCLA Stunt Ranch. The entrance is hidden but if you look, you'll see it.

There are trails on both sides of the road, one more strenuous than the other. Took the less difficult trail with my little doggie and it was beautiful scenery with very little incline. Very shady most of the way with a bench to stop and rest if you need to and there was even some water in the stream.

Easy fun local hike, doesn't take long and the rocks at the top make for a nice spot to rest and take pictures.
