Some nice views, a couple areas of pretty wildflowers, but not much shade, narrow path -- recommend wearing pants if you don't want your legs scratched up by overgrown, dry brush. Not a great trail for dogs because of lack of shade and potential for rattlesnakes to pop out. Plus parking is $5.

partially heavily overgrown trail. no problem for locals, but when you are a foreigner and alone, not finding the trail on the very first sight is a no no. morever, my hike was stopped by a rattlesnake. Everything went well; but if i met her on an overgrown part, i might had overlooked it.

Most of the wild flowers that people originally posted about were dead. You can still see or hear the traffic most of the time. We also had difficulty figuring out which way to go and some of the climbs were pretty steep, more like a moderate hike.

Walked this morning with my 9 yr old lab. Enjoyable. Some gravel road one summit view that is impressive. (Posted photo). Down path at loop starts rough. Can see how mountain bikes would love it. Took less than an hour at old lady pace. I would do it again. Tranquil.

Narrow trail but nice views- however always in sight of the road- good or bad depending on fear factor- ha. Dogs enjoyed, shade available about 20 minutes in

I absolutely love doing this trail with my Golden Retriever Duke. It's our new morning routine.
You will be surrounded by green rolling mountains and wildflowers the majority of you hike. The first half has a mild incline that will get your heart pumping. Once you reach the top, the panoramic view of the Valley and Topanga will take your breath away. The second half is all downhill and can be completed easily.
I love this trail and its 2 minutes from my house!!!!
