HikingGreat!

Lots of shade! at the beginning of the trail. Nice views at the end. Parking is limited and on residential street close to the trailhead. Watch out for the posted sign.

Mountain bikingGreat!

Amazing trail for biking! Gradual consistent incline very tough and last stretch is worse but the shade from trees help a lot. At the top there are two other trails but came back same way. Riding back down is the highlight and especially the singletracks on side of main trail. This trail strenuous but not that technical. Great for practice if beginner and endurance training.

Beautiful but packed with bikers and maskless hikers with pockets of solitude. Please LEASH YOUR DOG, big dogs running at you barking with teeth out is not fun.

HikingGreat!

This trail is a good choice for those looking for an easy, shady and long walk through nature. The only bad thing about this trail is on popular days when mountain bikers who think they’re on the Tour de France speed through, creating dust storms everywhere.

Trail is open again. Good for mountain biking or hiking. Leads you up to the backbone trail, nike missile tower, and also dirt mulhullond. Or you can just do an in and out. Gradual 1200 foot gain.

HikingClosed

Trail is closed for maintenance but we were told they don't do work on Sundays. Hit the trail today and saw some people. It was easy to main social distancing due to the wideness of the trail.. Not much views, a lot of trees. Long hike without much incline or decline. Good for training with weight

Hiking

So many different landscapes in one trail. There were lush green forests, vibrant patches of wildflowers, small streams throughout, terra-cotta colored paths...the trail seemed to go on and on through the canyon and then wrapping around the side of a mountain. This was perfect for a small group. We encountered minimal people, some on mountain bikes-everyone super friendly and respectful of the space and each other. I will for sure come back.

Currently closed due to the 'rona. There are signs that encourage property owners who live nearby to report violators. I've met a few locals who are totally the kind to report you. Sad, because this is an absolute gem and the path is wide enough to social distance and then some. That said, this is my one of my 2 favorite hikes with my dog. (the other fav is Stunt Ranch in Calabasas) Impossible to get lost. No car traffic. So quiet. Lots of trees, brush and stream for him to play in. Tree cover the whole time. And since the steep canyon walls line the path, I don't fear coyotes or mountain lions. l prefer to take the swtichbacks that weave in and out with the main path. An earlier comment was right- the air is different. You feel like a fae or a hobbit. BUT. That's also where bikers rip through and there are dangerous blind spots. (Leash or no, hikers dogs and bikers can all get hurt this way) But I also prefer the switchbacks because the pavers on the main trail are brutal on the ankles. So I guess everyone watch out for each other. Oh and the tics can be plentiful, as are knats. Depends on the season. Still worth it. Never yet made it to the top. Always get tired or out of sunlight. One day.

Good trail for walking and biking. Giving it a 2 stars rating cause of careless dog owners having their dogs off leash. Even before the trail, 2 big signs stating “keep your dog on leash” Also, a lot of bikers in full speed up and down trails
