Long hard 20 mile loop! Great views in the SF Valley, Downtown LA, Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades. Lots of traffic on the trail out of Temescal, thins out past Skull Rock.

This is a moderate trail hike with beautiful vegetation throughout and gorgeous breathtaking views. If you have small dogs, English bulldogs, French bulldogs etc. these are not hikes for them. Lots of rocky terrain but definitely worth the experience. I’ve been on this trail a few times and will keep going back. I recommend it! Take plenty of water and snacks. My recommendation would be early morning or late afternoon for your hike. Enjoy!

Good incline and a nice view at the top. Went counterclockwise as recommended in other comments. Super busy on a Sunday afternoon.

Crowded, too many maskless people shamelessly plowing through folks. Otherwise, trail is in good condition and as beautiful as ever, with added green from recent rains.

Great trail. Going counter clockwise is nice. You get the view on your way down BUT there is one steep area that you will need to be cautious on and ensure you have the right shoes. Other than that. Great trail.
