Very challenging and fulfilling trail. Thank heaven for this app because there are a lot of confusing spots where you could end up going the wrong direction if you're not looking at the app for the right path.

I started this hike at 6:45am in the morning. It look me about 3 hours and 54 minutes. It was a lot of fun, weather was cooperative and the views were splendid. There are a lot of points during this hike where you can see the ocean and Downtown LA at the same time! How awesome is that?!

Now about the other review that said it was about 16 miles, let me clarify that. It is 13.5 miles from the paid parking lot. Now, if you park on the street (sunset blvd) or else where, of course that would add some distance to your walking. The paid parking is a rip off. $10 for parking when a quarter mile up the road, there's free parking... PSSHH!! Of course I got street parking.. Anyway, I digress.. My point is: The start and stop point you see on the map is a total of 13.5 miles. Use the map on the AllTrail app cos it's easy to end up on another trail.

Bushes are all grown out so you must wear long pants if you dont want to get all scratched up. Also the downhill is pretty tough. The goat peak? was nice though.

This is an amazing loop trail but be warned, this is really more like 16 miles than 13.5. Took this from the base of Temescal, connected through a "closed" trail over the Rodger's Road Trail and finally across Rivas Canyon Trail. It's about14 miles to the base of Will Rodgers then 2.1 left on Rivas which is very narrow but steep and fun. While it was a crowded holiday Sunday, it was the nicest group of fellow hikers I've experienced in 15 years.
