Great views of Sun Valley. About 3 months ago this hike was hit with a massive wildfire. The soil is a bit lose but still worth the hike.

The first 0.3 mile the trail has been turned into a gully by rain, steep exposed rock scramble up and a careful pick-your-way-down. If you're looking for views, there are many more attractive trails around LA area. This one might be better in spring with the possibility of wildflowers.

First time hiking, so cant really compare it to any other trails, however it was definitely worth it. Not a lot of people there when I went so its nice and quiet with great views from all angles, and a few horseback riders as well. The scents of the plant life is like nice perfume. The houses right along the trails are nice, and the people seem friendly. Its rated as easy, which I found it a bit difficult but could just be me being a first timer from Chicago. definitely going back
